    Default '71 Fender Question

    Will '77 fenders work on my '71? If not how many years were inter-changeable?

    They should. I think the only difference between the years was in the emblem holes on the side. In fact, I believe that the new fenders still available from Nissan are '70-78 all.

    Thats what I was wondering, because the part numbers are way different. The '77 # comes up but not the others.
    What about front corners and center valance numbers for 77, are they on the CD?

    The shape of the center valance and front corners for the 280Z's are DIFFERENT than the parts for the 240Z.... I do not know if the center section for the 280Z will line up with the mount on the 240-Z. The 280Z has a larger radiator core support and I believe it sits lower in the car...

    Maybe someone here has been there/done that????? But I've want to know for sure before ordering parts..

    FWIW,

    Agree. The center valances are different for the model years. They don't mount in the same places. The fenders are fine, though.

    I realized my mistake as I was looking at the CD last night, I am now tracking the early '71 numbers.
    Thanks,
