Swapping rear lights and back panel

Hi guys, just picked up a 1977 Fairlady Z 260z S31 JDM that I’ll look to do a rebuild on, ive not got it yet, was wondering if the 240Z rear lights and back panel fit the 260Z, notice also the dash and console seem slightly different, are these swappable ? Being JDM it’s not got USA bumpers, so does...

Re: Rear end conversion, recommendations

Thanks Dave, can totally understand it, it’s a large chunk of money from T3 just to be knocked back, I like your OEM idea, if you have the skills to pull it off

Re: Rodger's 240Z

Wow that’s Amazing !! What he charge for that, if you don’t mind me asking ? Does it leave the dip place uncoated, straight to body shop, you got a guestimate on cost if body work repairs ?

I looked in depth at the options and I've seen people continue to try to modify existing parts to customise a sol...

Re: Which gearbox/diff

Thanks again guys, what else or problems can I expect changing to Auto to Manual ?? Got the chance of a standard 240 box, but not sure if I should just go with the Rb20DET, if I went 240, what other parts I’m I going to need to get ? Cheers Mark

Re: Which gearbox/diff

Stock diff for manual 240 was 3.9. In my case,late 260 2...

Again is this straight bolt in from the 280zx ? What else will I need as I’m going to need to get all parts b...
