Great links and info. And you're right this question is asked an awful lot. Can this be made as a sticky?
Might I add that folks getting a copy of the classic 'How to restore your Z-car' by Wick Humble is a great resource as well.
I wish someone would make another book like that only dedicated to the 280zx (my personal favorite Z car) :D
