280zx shifting throw

04 March 2017 - 11:27 AM

So I have a 280zx tranny I believe that's a 79 on my 510 currently and throw is god damn ridiculous. With that being said, I've considered a multitude of ideas.

To start, I've read that the bearing is the issue leaving it somewhat harder than a normal car to find exactly what gear the car is in.

Second, I've considered cutting and re welding the shifter stick to a shorter height to give less of a throw because it would be a shorter distance.

Anyone ever find a solution. I also read that it could potentially be that the rod doesn't enter deep enough into the tranny hole (lol) that it makes it harder to find gears which I don't quite understand because that would clash with the function if it weren't long enough.

White 510.

I've been super curious about white 510's lately. Do some of them come off white from factory? I don't have pictures unfortauntely. I love the color and was curious. I haven't seen any oem ones with off white.

Heated seats

22 February 2017 - 11:07 AM

So I've got a set of e30 sport edition seats for a steal and they're heated as well. Because I don't have a heater, heated seats could be really nice. With that being said, has anyone installed a heated seat? Here's the wiring from the seat. I was gonna purchase a universal switch off amazon but not quite sure how to wire it.

There's a four prong connection it seems to be.

And of course the beautiful seats themselves.

Steel wire brush to alloy wheels

19 February 2017 - 02:50 PM

So I used paint thinner on my long champs but there were some pretty damn stubborn spots so I ended up using a steel wire brush to get some things out. I didn't think of the consequences till after but I realized I could be damaging the wheel. I still have to sand it with a 400 etc to get a nice polish out of it.

Am I really in that great of danger for wheel? I've heard it could be unbalanced now but can't I rebalance them? The wheels are my longchamps.

Zcar depot window seals

09 February 2017 - 12:53 AM

Anyone ever use zcar depot for there front window seals? I'm looking into different options. I'm planning to purchase down the line and would like to see what's good.

Unlike 2012 in my earlier Datsun days, there are so many repos.
