Re: Stu's 1972 4 Door

Excellent, looks great. Congratulations on reaching this milestone with all of you hard work. Nothing looks quite as great as freshly-painted body parts.

Re: Carpet choices 2022..?

I would love to see pictures of the Australia product as well. I was thinking the listing had to be a mistake, so it would be great to see how it fits. I bought rolls of carpeting from a seller on ebay that was fairly local to me. I cut and fit it myself, but not 100% satisfied how it fits over the ...

Re: Outer C-pillar vent rebuild

I bought some aftermarket outer c-pillar vents and they do not come with the snorkel thing that keeps water out of the interior. When I removed my old ones from my vents, I could see that at one time, there was a rubber flap that I think was to be sort of a one way valve. What was left was crusty, ...

Re: WTB: Oil Pan

Hello there, I need a 510 oil pan, one that keeps oil inside. Any chance someone can post one over here? Comp style would be awesome if they exist still. When you say Comp style, are you referring to the current steel type? Those are available but may not qualify as "cheap". The old origi...

Re: Stu's 1972 4 Door

Unfortunately not a real accurate job on matching the fonts (IMHO), but perhaps the closest as you mention. I have not examined closely some of the other options. The stamped numbers are not so close. Nice update for the car though. I need to get one of these too for my 69. I have a stamp set, I wil...

Re: Dash removal and tach wiring diagram

At least in the US, the tachometer was generally sold as as accessory. There was a separate harness that came with it. Any chance the seller of the cluster has it? To get to the cluster you have to remove the entire surround of the instrument panel. A few screws on the bottom, two going nearly verti...

Re: Possible better alternative to 280ZX struts found

Probably? I think I started on there about 1995. Can't recall exactly when it migrated to Google, but that has probably been 10+ years.

Re: Possible better alternative to 280ZX struts found

Also, on a different note, I got banned from the Bluebirds list many many decades ago for being inflexibly insistent that I was right and for being aggressive about making sure the other guy knew he was wrong. Since then, I have learned a bit more tact, plus some good quotes! “Be tolerant with othe...

Re: What did you do on your 510 today?

Didn't really "do" anything to it yet, but towed my vintage race car acquisition home yesterday. It's a 1970, with lots of nice parts. Dogbox trans, Rebello 1.8, Jeff Winter manifold, 45 Webers, aluminum front hubs, fiberglass hood and trunk, etc. I have logbooks back to 1990 when it start...

Re: Headliner pictures

So while I won't often disagree with TJ (Yenpit), here is my experience putting in windshields recently. Copied from my post at Ratsun. Posted August 23 The front we did without molding installed. We did the rear first with the molding installed, and had to remove the lower right to get the corner t...

Re: 510 seat belt kit

Lou, I thought of this the other day. I bought some of these replacement button stops for one of my cars that was missing one. Worked great. This could hold the belt sides together on the upper half and still be removeable if desired. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2499334.m5...

Re: Headliner pictures

I had a Fuyao glass installed the end of August. It took my glass guy a few weeks to get, but no real issues. He could not find a Pilkington.
