    Default '72 240Z Fairlady Restoration

    Hello Calssic Z Club: I've been a Z car owner for 25 years now. I purchased my Fairlady in'86 while serving in the military @ Misawa Japan. The car has been garaged for the past ten years, now is the time to do a full restoration. Over the past two months have been purchasing many parts for this resto. Floor pans from Zeddsfindings, frame rails from baddogparts, rocker panels from millssupply. Looking to purchase a set of full rear quarter panels pref a set of new old stock (wishful thinking) if not a set taken of a California or rust free donor car. Any leads on parts would be greatly appreciated. Have been photographing the parts to catalog and document this restoration. Will be posting pics soon want you guys to witness the transformation. First step is to strip car and get it ready for media blasting. Will give more insight to resto on next post

    The person who buys on price alone is this man's lawful prey.

    Hey will you keep us posted on your restoration. I love the old style bodies and especially Fairlady's. My goal is to get a pre 73 fairlady.

    Please send some pictures

    Thanks

    When were you stationed at Misawa? I was there from 1985-1987.
