    I totally agree with that!

    As a side note: 210,000 miles is nothing to worry about... The last '83 that I had (got totalled in an accident about a year ago) had 296,000 on it when we bought it...

    Well, granted I'm no expert, and I live in the best-case-scenario state for these cars, but I'd personally say YES. It will be reliable once again. My newest '83 took me months of chasing problems,...

    I appologize for the quality, but I only spent about 10 minutes on this, and in the pic, the decal is still on my machine. It should be a good representation of what's possible though, so let me know...

    If someone can take a good enough pic, I'll make them for you. I'll look around and see what I can find in the meantime.

    Rear strut replacement on a '76 280Z

    I've recently started working on a '76 that's been parked for 10 years. After 10 years, there is a lot of work to be done, but the reason it was parked in the first place were the bad struts. The...

    Saving manual labor or not, I'm not sure I'll be trying that trick. I think I'd rather keep my tank in its original geometry :)

    I suppose if Red were going to solve the problem, he'd probably...

    Well the '81 is in my woodshop; a pretty good place to do a project like that. The '76 is at my wife's uncle's house burried under boxes. So I figured if I could do that, I'd only have to transport...

    Ok thanks! I would just go look, but both neither car is at my residence, and they are both 5 miles from each other... Not ideal for comparison :-)

    S130 tank in an S30?

    Well, it's finally time to start working on my '76 280Z. It's been sitting for 10 years, and I've recently confirmed that there was at least a gallon or two of fuel in it at the time that it was...

    I appologize for the delay here. I haven't been on in a few weeks.

    So far I've just been running it as-is and it seems to be fine. I do still have a problem with it running a little rough for the...

    I got it! I figured out the problem! I have an '83 car with the engine/manifold from an '81. So my vacuum lines were still all wrong, even though I thought they were right.

    Are there any other...

    Thanks for the input! There is a new stereo in the car (previous owner installed), there's no alarm and really no other electronic devices that aren't original. I think they did a load test, but I'm...
  14. Battery draining constantly; Flux capacitor problem?

    So I'm having a problem with my battery dying and I can't figure it out. As far as I can tell, nothing is on when the car is off (I've gone around listening/looking in a quiet place at night) but the...

    It probably will cook it, but I have access to lots of chemicals (through my work) that would melt the adhesive even in its cooked state. I like the idea of it being connected to the other side. Is...

    I thought about doing velcro, but I know that area gets hot and I was concerned the the adhesive might melt. Have you had any problems with that?

    Spray adhesive! What a great idea! I've even got a can of 3M 90 sitting right here... Thanks! :)
  18. PO did a number on the carpet. How do I fix?

    The previous owner of my '83 replaced the carpet, and it looks a little funny. The carpet itself looks nice enough, but it slides around and it now receding from the area where it should be tucked...

    Power steering isn't hard to do at all. Neither is the ignition switch. But in my personal opinion, digging into the door is going to SUCK... :-P As for the ignition switch, you might find it cheaper...

    Not yet, I'm showing it to a few more people in the next few days. I'm still seeing interest, but I'll let you know when we start looking at other offers.

    I wan't to start going to some events in...

    As for showing it to sell it, I already bought it (Cha-CHING!) :)

    As for showing it off, I guess I just didn't think about it. It's covered in boxes right now. I had to excavate just to get these...

    ROFL

    No, I haven't... I've been tempted too, though! I'll be over there tomorrow so I'll check. Man! That would throw off my "driving chi" having only 4 gears! If there isn't a 5 speed in there,...

    That's good to know, and I'll bet that's what it is. Would the 5 speed be an easy mount from the 4? I didn't look too hard, but the engine seemed almost identical to what's in my ZXs

    It's actually in amazingly good shape. It needs the struts replaced (thus the reason that it's on jackstands), and there's some interior stuff that needs to be done. Other than that, it's RTR (ready...

    I apologize for my delay in getting pictures up! The car has been covered in boxes, so it's been a little difficult, but here's what I've got:
