    What AIR DAM is this and do they make this style air dam for the 280Z?

    Where did you find the pic? I like it too, and I need to make a decision soon on which one I'll buy.

    The dam, it looks to me, is this one- just modified.
    Edit: just dropped the photo into paint.net and simulated cutting out the center section of the lower valance, as I suspect the owner of dam in question did.

    I like the fender flares too. can anybody provide some information about those? Are they easy to put on, Are they screwed in, or do they just look it. I'm running the OEM slotted mags on my '70, how wide should the tires be so that the flares don't look too big for the wheels?

    The flares are ZG flares http://www.thezstore.com/page/TZS/PROD/50-1562 and they are generally bolted on. In my opinion no matter how wide tires you squeeze onto your slotted mags, they're not going to fillout the flares.

    I think I found this air dam for those of you interested...

    240z/260z/280z
    1970-78
    kaminari fiberglass airdam 3 port style

    http://www.showcars-bodyparts.com/240z.html

    They are $330.00... I bought the urethane airdam with brake cooling ducts about 5 months ago. But I think I am going over this this style. I like it a lot on the 2 cars above.

    Thank you bartman for the info....

    Be very careful about purchasing from Showcars body parts. I've heard nothing but bad things regarding them. Things like extremely long wait times or not getting the parts at all, and poor quality for those that do receive their shipments. I got my air dam from MSA, but I don't see it on their web site. I would give them a call and see if they can get it for you.

    They aren't spectacular but if you'd like the full size shots, I'd be happy to send them.

    Anyone know the wheels on the car in the original post?

    I don't think MSA carries the same size Sportmax wheels I'm running. They're 18x8.5 up front and 18x9.5 on the rear. It was pretty hard to get them to fit, and I had to use 8" springs on the back in order to raise the lower perch high enough to not interfere with the wheels.

    The pic's look great, please do send me the originals.

    As for the wheels in the first shot, I don't know for sure - but they look like HRE wheels.

    Anyone know the wheels on the car in the original post? [/QUOTE]



    I would also like to know what wheels these are... They look a little like the BOZE style wheels but I cant find that exact style on their website. Plus they are a lot of $$$

    I emailed the account on your website from my gmail account. The pic sizes are enormous! Nearly 3 megs each

    Let me know if they don't come through.

    HRE? HRE's are awesome but Wow! they make a lot of pricey wheels seem like bargains. A guy that brought his Corvette in to a shop I worked during college told us he spend almost 10 grand on his hre's

    Got the pic's, thanks! Yes HRE's are extremely expensive. I'm not sure if that's what's on the first pic or not, but they look like they could be.

    I actually saw at least 1 510 at the show with a set of HRE's. I chuckled to myself, even though the car was in good condition, the wheels were probably still worth more

    I spent some time looking at your website. You've done a lot of work to your car under all that nice paint and CF. I really like those gauges and dual exhaust

    I bought my Air Dam from Kaminari directly. The original wheels at the top are Boyd Coddington 'Tuned' wheels. Custom wheels and they run $430 to 550 a wheel. Dave

    Is this also a Kaminari Air Dam? The owner in this page listed it as a Kaminari but it just doesn't look the same. http://www.cardomain.com/ride/3391523

    It is. I just did a PhotoShop mod to visualize what my end result would be. Here's the final look.

    1970-1974 Nissan 240/260Z Air Dam SKU: K020020 ordered direct from Kaminari.
