    This. Completely depends on the shape it's applied to.

    As far as the S30 is concerned, 901 Silver of course. :D

    Thanks for the input, Carl. That's really helpful. I think I'm going to tear the car down over the course of the next couple of months and see where we are then.

    Well Carl, you have an experienced eye if ever there was one.

    No visible rust around the front shock tower area. The inner fender under the battery tray has a nice rust hole in it (the tray itself is fine, weirdly enough). Wheel arches seem okay except where...

    That's where it gets tricky. My dad was the car's original owner, so we're kind of stuck with this one. It's either restore this particular Z or don't restore anything at all.

    Thanks for the replies, guys. Yeah, I should post another video after I get the car stripped down to the metal. Chances are it'll be even more bleak.

    Yeah, I have to do that too. There's also a certain sector of the wheel's rotation when the turn signal won't click into its detent. Nice touch, that.



    I gather it's similar. Heck, my dad's...

    Poll: Turn Signal Stalk Action = Mushy

    Is it just my Z, or is the action of the turn signal stalk on our cars incredibly mushy?
