    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.
