  1. My dad has also been super busy test fitting parts to the car. Seeing those lights/ bumper makes me want to get the car on the road asap. I also had a chance to give the engine and gearbox a quick clean. I need to make a plan of how i will tackle the running gear.
  2. I made some more progress over the weekend. My aim was to clean up and paint the underside of the first 2/3 of the car. I was pretty happy with he result, 1/3 to go.
  3. Good evening, So over the last week and a half we have been trying to clean/ revive as many parts as possible and now have a better idea of the parts i am missing. I cant wait to start installing. I also had chance to have a good look at the body of the car, inspected sills, under body etc. Noticed that there was a heap of media/sand in one of the outer sills. Spent a couple of evenings trying to vacuum all the media out. I managed to get majority of it out. I attached some old radiator hose on the vacuum cleaner to protect the paint and the get more of the media out. I also decided to drop the front end (suspension, steering rack etc.) to clean and repaint (job for this weekend).
  4. Good evening all, I'm not sure what to call my project, it not really a restoration, more of a reassemble and refurbishment. I was luckily enough to become the owner of a very straight example of a 1972 240z. The guy i bought it off had the car for about 15 years. When doing the body/ paint work there were only a couple of minor rust repairs to be made. The shell was then sitting in a shed for the last 6 years untouched and collecting dust (does this count as barn find? ) The car came with a good chunk of the interior parts already refurbished (seats, dash etc) these have been mixed in with good condition original parts. I picked up the car on Saturday evening, and got it safely home Sunday afternoon. The evenings this week have all been about sorting out my garage and parts. Then delivering the parts to dad (who is helping with the project). He has been cleaning them up as we go, so when the time comes we can just assemble. Once we do this, i will have a better idea of what parts i need to find to put her back together.
  5. Good Evening, Julian here from Melbourne. After years of day dreaming, searching the classifieds daily, admiring my brother & sister in-law's 240z, I finally got my hands on a 240z project of my own! I came across the project via my cousin. 3 years ago he randomly started to talk to a guy at the local IGA, and they got onto the topic of old cars and the few Datsuns he had in his shed. There was a particular 1600 that my cousin was interested in. The guy didn't want to sell. He also had this 240z partially restored under covers. After 3 years of asking him every time they bumped into each other, he finally agreed to sell. My cousin purchased the 1600 about two months ago, and also inquired about the 240z on my behalf. Fast forward two months, a safe journey home, the car is safe in my garage and i cant stop smiling. My plans are to restore her relatively stock, other than wheels, spoiler and front splitter. I look forward to sharing my build (hopefully absorb as much advice/ knowledge) with the Z Community. Cheers,
