    Tomo, there is no one supplier for this stuff. The stuff was dealer installed, and just like custom wheels, different dealers used different suppliers. Finding the exact match for what you have on...

    People have been saying that for more than 20 years. The 240Z is a perennial top pick on all the magazine's and analyst's "buy one now while they're still cheap" lists. All sorts of big projections,...

    If the bezels are NLA, I'd recommend re-keying the ignition to match the doors (as I'm assuming that door locks are still available in matching pairs, possibly a bad assumption). The hatch may have...

    Yes. The ignition is the easiest, followed by the doors. Any competent locksmith should be able to do it, I even borrowed a wafer set and did an ignition switch myself. Not hard with the correct...

    Big intakes on the L24 will likely require fly-cutting the block, unless it has already been bored .040" over. Save it for an L28.

    I'm not certain that the 3-in1 oil is a true 20. It always seemed thin to me. I used 20 wt. motorcycle fork oil in mine.

    The only important part here is the coil. If your coil is hotter than stock, you can use the wide-gap version of the stock plugs. I ran BP6ES-11 with Pertronix and a Crane PS-20 coil.

    I believe one could create a form that feeds a spreadsheet in Google Apps. Might be able to keep the actual spreadsheet locked, only accepting changes from the form.

    Don't rule out ignition problems, especially the coil and any condensers that are on the distributor or coil. I'd actually test that first. Much simpler.

    As a guess, I'd say yes, it used to be an automatic. Post a picture of the left front fender well in the engine compartment, showing the ignition coil and the area below and in front of the coil....

    Fine Wires were all the same, cross-laced but 100% tubeless as the spoke ends go into a welded ring on the rim, not through the rim itself. It was a completely different type of wire wheel, in it's...

    No affect on offset. The inner "nuts" are the threaded things you see in picture with the offset hole in the end. The outer nuts are large, thimble-like nuts. There should be one large diameter...

    None of those wheels were officially imported into the USA, which is where most of this forum's members live. You will probably need to try to search in Japan for these, or possibly Australia.

    I agree with Mark. If you are going to ditch the injection, you will want to use the '70-72 carbs. The difference is not just performance, but drivability. Unless they are extensively re-worked, the...

    Agreed, please post a picture. I am familiar with most of the makers, if we can ID the manufacturer we should be able to come up with something that will fit.

    If the tail light finisher in the picture has been painted with that paint, it's too glossy. I wouldn't use it.

    I'm with Rob on this one, much as I liked my round-top carbs. We are 40+ years down the road now. There are very few 240Zs left that retain this kind of originality. Like my previous car, I would not...

    Steve adds another thing that I didn't mention above - even 200 HP is great fun in a car as light as a 240Z. And given the difficulties in getting serious amounts of rubber under the Z fenders, going...

    400 HP is a lot for stock 240Z suspension and brakes. I'd go about this the other way, start by getting the cheapest and easiest to install engine and transmission into it and make it a driver. That...
