    What did you do to your Z this week?

    Amazing, bet you were chuffed. Deffo coolest way to arrive at a prom. Good t-shirt too btw.

    Gotta love their optimism.

    Nice sales pitch! Having a bit of a laugh comparing it to a Singer though surely? If an MZR isn't considered up to Singer levels of detail, then this (albeit absolutely lovely thing that I would be beside myself to own!) surely isn't. What a beautiful example of a Z though.

    Hello!! Soon to be new owner (hopefully) - here is the car I am buying

    Someone looking for a Z obviously Googled it and liked the look of your car so they're using the photo :) Unfortunately their budget is only $15k.. might be enough for a tatty 240z but not a 280 eh! ;)

    Yeah, you get 2 clunks and then you're parked.

    What did you do to your Z this week?

    My car arrived at the port in Oakland. Has some interesting looking yank metal for company! Getting excited now.. even though it won't be here until early August..

    What did you do to your Z this week?

    So do you have to put rubber blocks or something where the jacking points are? I see some of the others they sell have additional little arms with rubber blocks on already.

    What did you do to your Z this week?

    Lovely that. Very subtle, almost a sleeper! Just the wheels giving the game away slightly ;) So did you source the Rebello from the UK or pay for one direct from them in the US?

    What did you do to your Z this week?

    So that's all from a NA L28 isn't it? Albeit very tuned? That's impressive. I'd like a Rebello engine 😂

    240Z wheels and Tyres

    Got the ones on the right on my 280 - they seem to go by a lot of names. People seem to call them Western Cyclone, Appliance Cyclone / Appliance Hurricane / Turbo vecs/vectors But the General Lee had American Racing Vectors (below) which aren't quite the same, so I'd go with any of the first 3...

    Steering wheel options?

    I was talking about the Nardi wooden wheels - that's why I said "a proper wood wheel" :) Yeah I was wondering about the size being an issue.. I'm hoping that just a little smaller (360mm vs 380mm) wouldn't be that noticeable though?

    Steering wheel options?

    Yeah, I've used them on my M3, great quality. I'd still rather have a proper wood wheel though, so if anyone can help with the questions above I'd be really grateful.

    Question on Filling Import forms

    Blimey! You mean in came in via Southampton but was then taken to Milton Keynes instead of where you live? Or was Southampton meant to be the final destination as well as the port? @BenjEtch used Kevin Hill and his 280z was safely delivered down the road from me, so fingers crossed it'll be ok.

    Question on Filling Import forms

    I guess it depends if @Herc34es is using a shipping company that does it all for you or not? I've literally just filled in the forms I needed to to import my 280z. I'm paying Kevin Hill Shipping to do it all for me - I've just had to sign a BIFA T's & C's doc, then 2 called ATAR forms, which...

    Steering wheel options?

    The floors have been sorted already - tiny bit of welding and then all painted with POR15. When the car arrives I'll be stripping the rest of the old sound deadening off, painting all the floors in body colour and applying new modern sound insulation. That's definitely the top priority yes :)...

    Steering wheel options?

    My incoming 280z had a nasty 80s leather cover glued to it - see pic, so I think the wheel is done for. I'm torn between a wooden Nardi wheel (as I've never had a car with a wood wheel before) or a Datsun Competition wheel to keep it OE. I have a few questions though - 1. It looks like you...
