    I have another one on my 240Z that also came from MSA....I will measure to confirm they are the same.
    I think the problem is that MSA only offers one fiberglass bumper for the S30.....no matter 240/260/280. And since 240/260/280 have different mounting locations for stock bumpers, the quarter panel mounting locations are different too and will need some adapting to work.

    Time to remove the old carpets and check the floors etc. Also need to remove the center console for some minor crack repair and clean up. Looks good so far. Other side this weekend along with a clean up in the hatch area.

    I fitted a UK 260Z rear bumper to my gold 280Z and drilled new holes for the quarter panel mounting points.
    It was a bit of a nightmare getting it bolted up with the fuel tank in place.
    The bumper sticks out a bit further due to the quarters not having the bumper recess but looks fine.
    I also fitted a neoprene spacer (piece of mouse mat) to provide a bit of paint protection.

    This project is about done and headed across the pond.
    Needs to be lowered and a nice exhaust system added but a great starting point.
    The front spoiler is going with the car but was too nicely wrapped atm to attach temporarily like the rear spoiler.
    The new owner will start a post on the car i'm sure so stay tuned, give it a wave if you see it about.

    Hi Mike.

    How can I get one of those BMCs please and the new rad ?

    Is the car ending up in LHD land or not ?

    Maybe an option to send direct to here where they're more valued for obvious reasons.

    Sean, the power brake booster for a 280 was from O'reilly Auto Parts and was $100 plus a $20 core charge. The part # is 53-5104.

    I have not got the word from the owner of the 5 Z cars that he would sell to me yet, maybe another week or so.

    Thanks Mike.

    The yellow kitted is based upon which model and year please - did you get a chance to see/check the engine, brakes, suspension ?
