In mid resto on the the 240z and the panel beater says my drivers door is pretty ugly and I would be better off getting another one. Anyone sitting on a cache of doors that are surplus to requirements........Thanks!

I didn't get an alert from the forum tool so missed your post........have just bought tail light gaskets from Motors...

240z bumper rubbers - buying from states

Hey Z-aphiles, My 72 240z is getting bit of refresh including rechroming front and rear bumpers. It would be a shame to use the old rubbers so I am checking if anyone has bought out of the states. About 15 years ago I got some NOS bumper rubbers out of the states from a mate over there. Drag them ou...

Getting a crank out of an LD28 - stuck

Hey team, I am pulling an engine apart for the first time and it happens to be an LD28. I want the crank for a potential build one day.......although it will probably just sit on a shelf! I am a little stuck and need some tuition! There are two big end bearing caps still holding the crank hostage an...

Hmmmm

Are you selling or buying?

Selling - start high and be patient

Carbs 200 - block and head 500 plus another 500 for gear box? Pulling numbers from thin air as I haven’t seen a complete combo for sale for a while. Can’t say there would be high demand. Most people go for 240/280zx combos
