    Hi All


    I'm a returning club member after a 24 year break, I have been bitten by the Z bug again and purchased a 1974 260z as a resto project. The plan is to covert LHD-RHD and make a tidy street car. I will be looking for parts and advice any help will be much appreciated

    Welcome back Ron.

    Just a thought about the RHD conversion - you may have a problem souring parts unless you can find a cheap 2+2. However with so many 280Zs being imported even that may get snapped up.

    What is the body like on your 260?

    Good Luck.

    Hi Rob

    Thanks for the welcome, the body does need some work, holes in floor pans bulk head and inner wing under the battery tray. A few scabbie bits bottom of the rear arches and bit on the door skin onthe whole pretty sound.

    Hi Ron, what car did you have 24 years ago? Or is the clue in your forum name? :D

    Good luck with the rest, be interested to see how it all goes. I think a few on here have done the conversion ...

    hi Mike

    Your post has made me dig out some old photos my old car was a 77 260z 2+2
    and it looks like I'm a returning member after a 32 ish year break ( i don't know who the skinny bloke with the bad hair cut is)
