'71 Z with a paint job
Posted 21 October 2016 - 09:29 AM
Car drove well for about 5-10 min until screens in the bowls clogged. Car was not being driven few oily plugs , is it possible the plug wires were out of order? Had the tank done for reasonable price , including all vent hoses previously deleted. could tell the car was basically given a paint job and put up for sale but i like cars that havnt been torn apart for 40 years.
so pics ? 2011.. found about twelve pics of it on a google search.. same lic plate
powder coated mags in pretty rough shape , green hood, donor passenger door.. passenger side pretty beat up
car painted around the bages they didnt break off.. through the windsheild cowl, liitle on the window rubber , some rough spots and thin , look like they ran out of paint. doesnt look like they preped the hood well , but they put in work and im no expert
all ive done is work on headlight mounting , tint removal , some interior, and ill get to that
^2016 blown brake booster
put some mileage on it , drove it hard .. recent blown head gasket (dont want to tell that )
So i do understand mechanic theory pretty well , worked in golf course maint for 5 years, i do not have much garage access.
Called up Classic Datsun Motorsports in Vista.. Les said he do the motor
'87 IMSA GT2 Champ (80's turbo
Alright , I plan on making a thread out of this with pics of my car and me working on it .. heater core , electrical
ill load some oics of floors/ issues with the car ( tomorrow ) as i have it torn apart
Please excuse disjointed style , and please talk shit.. need to change my signature

Polished mags , yes .. some gouges and pits tho, might like them striped and rough
Nothing crazy with wheels(look good with Advans) , thinking steel with original caps when I need tires.. 235s too much grip

Had new replacement Hitachis to put on and the shop had a rebuilt 4 speed.
Excited to get it back today
Still some temp patching of floors( I plan on keeping on dry roads) and electrical work.. earlier pic of fried harness turned out to be a cooked ground wire that had previously been hooked up to the alternator. But gauges like tach , gas are not working. Hazard switch pretty questionable.
I'll get a few more pics up.. maybe in pics of your Z thread
