Orange LHD 240z Project

So after some switching around, the new project was trailered over today:



It's a '72 with an l28 and 5-Speed conversion (not sure which). It's a bit rough in places but I'm looking forward to getting started!

Looks lovely. Apart from the horn pad, what's rough?

Some rot on the outer wings and rear slam panel with some minor impact damage to the passenger door, bonnet & headlight cowls.

It's had a blow-over at some point but it's pretty close to the 918 that's underneath.

I've paid MY club-subs to be a nit-picker.

It all depends how much you paid : price/condition.....and then add ability to bring her up to your desired state.

There were those a while back who said that if I wasn't a paid-up member I should shut-up.......although they (mostly) appear to have lapsed.

I do feel very strongly that when someone benefits from this site that they ought to support its existence and continued help by paying up the seriously cheap m-ship fee of just £15 a year.

And for a last groan, it should be obligatory for newbies to present themselves whetehr with or without cars before their first self-interested post-up.

Sorry for the hikack.

Nice project car - hopefully to be left LHD to retain some quirky orginality.

Underneath looks solid, I'm guessing the dash is a replacement but it seems in good nick (apart from the glovebox inner being missing). No plans to convert it to RHD at the moment.

I don't think the radio works at the moment but after seeing what smileyinside did to his I'm quite tempted to follow in his footsteps.
