  1. Yep, somewhat stretching the truth - but maybe more honest with the "no roadworthy supplied"
  2. Seems the auction consists of all the cars from a dodgy managed investment ("ponzi") scheme that was shut down by ASIC with debts of $240million. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-12-12/chris-marco-used-ponzi-scheme-to-buy-classic-cars/12977966
  3. Yep, looking at the chromework on the rear bumper and also the taillight surround they seem to have done it to a high standard. It will be a good to see what sort of price benchmark it sets for a 260Z (for insurance purposes). Interesting they did not look at an east coast auction.
  4. Not an expert (far from it), but looks like it is running too rich and probably eventually fouled the spark plugs.
  5. Thankfully you do not have to remove panels too often that are secured by these rivets, but I thought using a suitably sized small screw to replace (just) the rod part may be an option if you are not concerned about the aesthetic appearance.
  6. Nope, generally you can find the rod and then it can be reinserted no problems. Any original ones will likely be brittle but the ones from the zfactory are pretty much exact replicas and work very well. I have used them and had no issues.
  7. AFAIK, MSA/The Z Store are the exclusive sellers of the 240/260Z Konis : https://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/CTGY/classic20b04
  8. Not sure if the current types of lithium batteries have improved however, when I previously looked at this, I understood lithium batteries like to operate within a limited temperature range and this may be exceeded by engine bay operating temperatures. Outside of this range their ability to be charged and longevity are affected. But, the latest Li battery types may have improved.
  9. Great video Jeff, it shows the amount of work you put into it and the attention to detail that has resulted in a lovely car - no wonder you get positive reactions from people who see it. Makes me somewhat depressed as to what I need to do to get my car's paintwork back to an "as new" look!
  10. Referenced in another topic : http://www.get-my-ride.com.au/vehicles-transported/
  11. Great post, thanks for all of the detailed info and photos !! Just wondering, does it have a fresh air intake as well or does it just recirculate the cabin air?
  12. For that price I would go for the OS Giken TC24-B1Z https://www.greenline.jp/catalogue/bproduct.php?category=engine&subtype=Engine, Head and Short Block Assemblies&brand=OS Giken&series=&name=TC24-B1Z Complete Engine&fromlink=1
  13. The factory fuel rail has the return built into it.
  14. Probably the only option anyway as I understand a set of the OEM type rubber ones are NLA.
