82' Turbo 280zx BC

Hi all

as you can tell by the post this is the new ride that brings me here! Its going to be a restomod and needs a ton of work but it should be worth it. So i could go on all day about the car but im just going to blast off major facts. T-top, straight 6 turbo, automatic (i know might trans swap it later down the line), 2+2. Needs new paint, new interior and then it will get to the fun mods!

Welcome! Nice z, do the T tops have any problems with leaking over the years?

The interior was originally brown and the exterior was actually the black with the gold pin stripes (which i think is way better than the red he painted it but everyone has their preferences).

This is my first year with the car so i havent experienced any leaks so far (watch now that i say that it will start) but the previous owner had them resealed before it started leaking. I feel like the t tops wont leak if you look after them obviously but only having to reseal them after once or twice in 30 years is pretty good in my opinion.
