Agreed. Quick fix to fit wheels, I don't have money for this car right now, when it's time it will get a full repaint. Was going to fix it properly but unfortunately when we were repairing found out it was previously repaired with lead skin (70's???) so we couldn't weld on it or use a puller unless the fender was completely cut out. Used hammers and then filler to shape.

So I ventured farther from home today with the new stance and carb adjustments......it runs so smooth and rides great.  Can't wait to start driving it some more!!!!!!!!  Here are some pics at work and some better shots of the fender repair.

That's right!

 

Cut it, flare it, slam it! :D

 

Hey, you did more work on a Fairlady Z in one week than I did in five years!


Thank you Ted!

Thanks! It's the first time I met the wife....she loved it and started to cry...she also told me she was the girlfriend back in '77 when Norman went to Europe for two months...she was told to drive it while he was away and she did and someone backed into the passenger door. She was terrified to let Norman know and her parents owned a tow truck business so she had a shop repair it before he came back. Obviously he found out later but cool story. There have been a couple minor accidents in the past but norman told me all panels are original to the car. None were damaged too much to have to replace. It was definitely a driver...306,000kms and counting! I will learn more history as time goes on and hopefully he can find some original pics in Japan and throughout the years as well as some items that were removed.

Had a great time driving it today!

No rear side markers.. huh

Just noticing the gaskets , series one were pretty thin I'm thinking. Noticed some replacements I have are twice as big as my badly worn originals

You can stop with all the work and pictures , feel like I've seen it all. :)

Drove the Fairlady to the Rgruppe meet in Emeryville today. So fun cruising on the freeway. My new needle and seat arrived AFTER I got home so I was still dealing with carburetor issues during the drive but at speed it was ok. I had a ton of crowds checking it out and met some cool people.

So the Z is FINALLY running awesome!!!!! Turns out the flooding issue was because the overflow drain tube on the float bowl was clogged full of dirt! I guess it created vacuum causing the needle to be open and flood the carb with fuel. Once I blew pressurized air through it to get rid of the junk the car ran perfectly!!!!

I was so sure of myself I even drove it on the datslocos fun run to Point Reyes on Saturday! Over 300km of trouble free driving!!

My friends Eric and Peter rolled with me to meet up with the datslocos crew in Concord
