Hi

zcarsource.com stock a repair kit for the early calipers, looks like just seals by the price.

https://zcarsource.com/brake-caliper-rebuild-kit-rear-brake-280zx-79-81-new/

I have a pair of used calipers and a box of odd used bits pistons etc. I’m not sure of the state of the calipers, they have been in the garage for quite some time. You are welcome to the lot, you might be able to repair yours by cannibalising these. Drop me a pm if interested, just some contribution to postage is all.

Thanks Huw!
That's v kind of you and I'd be happy to contribute to postage, of course.

I'm in France though in case that makes the whole thing too expensive!

You're a good man

Bit of bodywork and more sound deadening chipping today. So far only the floors exhibit rust and am very happy with the overall condition of the car! A fun day in the sun! Cheers all 🍻

Passenger door in the firing line today.
From what I can see, the window didn’t quite seat on the weatherstripping so a little trickle of water could get in every time it rained. The water collected in the bottom and voila.

Lots of complex shapes but little by little, I’ll get er done!

Found a donor door off a Toyota for some similar shapes 🙏

Update no. 2 TOTALLY given up on the door. Way beyond my skill level so she'll be off to the carrossier soonest.

I have managed to redo all the interior trim so I'm not a complete failure!
My mother in law is making me new seat covers too. I'm going to have to be extra nice to her for about a year but it'll be worth it!

Cheers all 🍻

PS I've ordered a black carpet.
