  2. Hi All We now have carpet kits available for both the 240 Coupe and 260 Coupe & 2+2 directly from us. (Set Picture is the coupe set) There were problems with these in the past especially when suppliers were selling out to each others so in order to have these correct and available I went and saw Lindsay at the Z-shop along with couple of owners and fully re-patterned these from scratch to have a fully correct well fitting set. Chat with him if you like he has fitted kits to customer cars. We have made quite a few of these now and everyone is very happy with them. We can make these in original Black loop or any of our offered colours in both Loop and Plush Pile We can do one piece cargo mats in Black and Grey, other colours will have a discrete seam due to the original material being 1m wide They are $380 including Australia wide delivery for the whole kit. Happy to answer any questions anyone might have. Regards Stuart 0400995515 www.ausclassics.com Feedback on the sets "Looks Great thanks mate, Love Your Work" "Excellent, Thank You"
  3. Gday Guys my dream of owning a 260z started when I was young I remember seeing photos of them and thinking I would love to own one someday about 18 months ago my brother bought a Datsun 1200 ute and I decided i couldn't be left out and It was time to buy a Datsun myself after cruising around on the internet for a few months I found a 2+2 and took the leap and bought it, thankfully i got it for the right price and thankfully it was pretty strait and fairly rust free although someone had done a not so fantastic job of spraying it, after getting her regod I made the choice to remove the L26 and auto and put in a rb25det and do a manual conversion after completing the conversion a few months later I decided to pull the engine back out to restore the engine bay which after 40 years of neglect had seen better days, i know, i should have done this before putting the rb in there but i was excited ahaa thankfully there was no rust that went any deeper than surface on the chassis rails and firewall and after hours and hours of sanding and priming the engine bay looked much much better whilst the engine was out i had been borrowing my brothers non turbo xr6 fg 6 speed manual ute i was impressed with how the engine went and after a couple of jokes about barras he convinced me ( im easily convinced) to do a fg xr6t engine conversion, so that's what i am doing after consulting a local engineer he has given me the go ahead for the conversion with the specific set of guidelines, i have to seam weld the engine bay, inside the car, chassis bracing and upgrade the brakes and a few other bits a pieces i found a cheap non turbo barra engine ($100) locally to mock up making the engine mounts and to figure out the right postion of the engine etc while i hunt around for decent price complete conversion package for the ecu i will be using a Haltech elite 2500T aswell as full haltech wiring harness/loom, originally i wanted to use a 6 speed manual but have decided that i will most likely use a 6 speed auto ( still kinda deciding) as far as diff/suspension i have r200 LSD and z 31 upgrades shafts, will be using maddat coilovers all round with r33 gtr front calipers and r31 rears ( thanks to mark from street weapon restorations) if all goes to plan in the next 4-5 weeks engine will be in and running, the next stage is to do all the rest to get it driving so i will deffinnatly post pics and videos when it has been finished in the meantime i will upload the current photos i have of the car cheers guys
  4. Hey all, I have been thinking about starting a build thread for a while but have been putting it off, but i've decided to bite the bullet and start it up, perhaps more or less for my own records but hopefully I will be able to help a few people out as I have found huge amounts of valuable knowledge on this forum. Here we go! Back story: I picked up this 1976 260z 2+2 in mid 2017. I had been looking for a Z for a while (needed a new project car since I sold my last, a R32 skyline) but all I could seem to find was either cars with more rust then metal left or ones that had been restored and way out of budget. So when this one came up, regoed, somewhat driving and what I would call a reasonable condition and price I jumped! The guy I bought it off had the engine rebuilt. He couldn't tell me much or find the receipts but I do believe it was rebuilt. Goals: For me, this car is all about having a project to work on in some of my spare time. I'm an engineer and love designing and building things. My general philosophy is I try to do everything I can do myself and learn from my mistakes and give it another go if I need to. Therefore I know the end result wont be as good as some one who gave their car to workshops and let someone else build it, but for me it's all about the fun of the build. But to the car, my vision is a street car that I can take to the occasional track day or tarmac sprint. I was thinking about naming this thread "add it to the list" because every time I think about an element of the car, something about it needs to be fixed or replaced and I keep saying to myself, i'll add it too the list. But i'll get into details as the thread goes ahead, I have lots of cool ideas, hopefully some of which will come to fruition. I am taking it one step at a time, first the engine, then the suspension and brakes, then the panel work and interior is the simplified plan. Well heres a photo that makes the car look really really good, why not I say, there will be plenty of those gritty 'before' style photos along the way.
  5. Hi everyone! I've been stalking forum for the last couple years while restoring my rusty 260z so I thought it's about time for an introduction. I'm currently up north in Adelaide, haven't seen many z's up this way besides a little further north around Gawler. I haven't had the time to keep a build thread being a typical student but I've been keeping a log on Instagram of the build over the last two years. I had the car shipped over from WA after seeing a handful of pictures, including several large holes in all the typical S30 spots. Couple years later and a little bit of hard work and the car is in primer with rebuilt suspension and drive line ready to go in. https://www.instagram.com/cory.pritchard/
