    Default Hello from San Diego

    I just picked up a 1972 240z last week, and it needs some work. The dash has major cracks, of course, and the glove box cover is broken in half. I picked up a replacement dash, with only minor cracks, and an intact glove box. So far, this site has helped a lot guide me through some of the steps, so thanks for the thorough posts. If anyone out there wants to share info about dash replacement ... I am sure I could use the help. Thanks.

    Welcome, There are a few guys from San Diego on this forum. Give the z club of San Diego a try. The club meets the first Tuesday of every month.
    As far as the dash goes it's pretty straight forward job. I use sandwich baggies to keep track of nuts and bolts use a sharpie on the bags and label as you go.

    the junk yards in San Diego still have a consistant supply of z cars however the turnover at ecology has slowed way down the past year. Also a great place for all your nut and bolt needs is a company called Marshalls Hardware. On Craiglists check out a guy thats calls himself zman he's in La Mesa and has a lot of decent z parts for sale all the time.

    have fun with the z

    Liam in La Mesa (the zman) does have a nice selection of parts ready to sell. He is a good guy and I would buy from him anytime. Stop by the club meeting on Feb 3rd so we can see what you got.

    Replacing one cracked dash with another doesn't seem very productive to me. I'd get a full dash cover to recover the dash. Properly installed the full dash covers are hard to tell from the original dash...

    Just a thought...
