  1. Thanks for the advice. No idea how this happened, but left it overnight and the brakes are quite firm. Perhaps there was some air trapped further up the line which it was able to bleed by itself.
  2. Hi all, Just bleeding my brakes on my 1978 Datsun 260Z as I needed to disconnect the front calipers to service the struts. Having some issues with a soft pedal (wont brake until foot flat to floor). Just trying to eliminate possible issues - am I right in saying that the reservoir for the front calipers on the BMC is not related to the reservoir for the rear drums?? So if I had a air bubble in the front - it could not migrate to the rear lines? I am re-bleeding the entire system regardless from rear to front but keen to get any ideas where the source of the problem could be. Thanks in advance
  3. I do not recommend (as you said) any eBay copies. I purchased one and spent more time and money making it fit. You could try a Kameari fibreglass or carbon fibre version https://www.rhdjapan.com/kameari-carbon-rear-spoiler-s30.html You can also purchase direct from the manufacturer in Japan. I presume this is what you meant by rear lip. Who did you purchase the Xenon front lip from?
  4. The issue here is that I was sold the standard height as they match to George's description. Not the lowered which is why they look different. Never trust Gumtree sellers.
  5. Thank you very much, got it sorted. Cheers.
  6. Just need some help identifying which lowering springs go in the front and which in the rear. I purchased a set of King Springs (lowered) second hand for a 260Z and unfortunately the part numbers had rubbed off. Since then I have powder coated red. There are 3 pictures for comparison. The yellow set are King Springs which I was trying to compare them to (pic found online). The first red set are Tokico (denoted by F for Front and R for Rear) (pic also fpubd online) The second red set with no numbers are mine. Which I cannot identify which go where. You will notice that one set have an extra two coils. Both sit into the seat of the strut nicely. The yellow King Springs show one set are longer than the other which mine are not. Any advice would be helpful. Telling me that I should have test fitted them prior to powdercoating or that I shouldnt have trusted the seller is not helpful, haha!
  7. 1978 Datsun 280Z 2 seater LHD (NOT 280ZX and NOT 2+2) Same shape as 240Z and 260Z Located in Gosford, NSW 2250 Engine: L28 fuel injected Recently had the head serviced Z-Story 432 Style Vertical Tip Exhaust Transmission: 3 speed auto Body: Open door respray and complete rust repair by Resto Pros in Hanwood, NSW many thousands of dollars spent - reciepts on request 432 Style Spoiler New front and rear bumpers (Aus/Japan style) Electrical: Narva RHD replacement headlights (legality for LHD cars) Radio antenna delete Interior: All complete panels New carpet Colour: Nissan A54 Eau Rouge Red (same red as the current 370Z) Tyres: Yokohama Avid Ascend 195/65R15 near new Wheels: Rota RB 15x7 Imported: From USA in 2017 Parts: Also included are Toyota S12W calipers and 300ZX Z31 vented rotors Billet aluminium fuel rail and fuel pressure regulator Lowering springs Story: During a trip to Canada and the USA I came across this 280Z in Vancouver, Washington, USA. It was in such good condition and I had to have it. I imported it to Australia through USAtoAUS import company. Once it arrived in Australia I spent many many hours stripping the paint to bare metal. To my suprise there was very minimal rust. The original colour was burgundy. Afterwards I handed it over to RestoPros in Hanwood NSW to finish the restoration. They did an exceptional job and I spent tens of thousands of dollars with them to bring it up to the amazing condition it is in now. It has been in storage awaiting club rego, however I have decided to part ways with it. In the two years that I have undertaken this project, I have married and have a baby on the way. I would much prefer to spend the money on my new born, wife and new home. Most suited for club rego - only requires pink slip and club inspection. If you want it on full rego it will require an engineers certificate (On purchase of this car you will receive all the import documentation required for rego). It is currently in Gosford NSW Happy to answer any questions you have. Chasing $29,000 but willing to negotiate. Please contact Lachlan on 0421862070. Or PM. If I don't answer, please send a text message and I will reply asap, often busy at work. Happy to provide more images on request.

  9. All good. Once I put the whole door back together I remembered where it goes. So I will have to pull it apart again. It goes between the door glass and the metal bracket along the top metal straight edge.
  10. Hi All, Just need some help identifying where this rubber is located. I have a S30 coupe (2 seater) and currently putting it back together after a respray and I am not sure where these rubber bits go. I seem to have labelled everything except these two parts. I have a feeling that they are part of the doors but not sure where. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. They are approx 80cm long Please see attached photo Many thanks, Lachlan

  14. Additionally, the photo of the engine bay is someone taking a picture of a photo on a computer screen. Totally agree it looks like a pic from Japan with the kei cars in the background. I love how they fitted two seats in the back of a 2 seater. Scam...
