hey, I finally got the Z I've been dreaming of since a teen.I've had it a month and something major went wrong with the engine. I'm buying a 280zx motor and putting my 72 intake and su's on it. I've never done an engine swap and need a little help or guidance about things I need to do and am curious if its going to go fairly easy. My # is 540-769-3145. Any help is greatly appreciated. I love this car and the breed and want this to be a good experience. Thanx, [email protected]
Thanx for the support! I live in Roanoke, I've been out of the datsun scene for about 8yrs. Last was a 71 510. I found help with the engine, now rust repair is my next obstacle. I'm buying rear quarters (that's all the rust pretty much) a guy said he'd give me pointers, but I want to do it right. After I get the engine in, couple weeks, I was curious if I could pay someone to help weld these in?id be willing to travel within a 200 mile radious. I love this car, and have fallen back in love with the breed. Any help I can lend,I'm more than happy to. Thanx a lot.
I'm up in Staunton. My wife went to college at Hollins when we were courting, so I know you're only 1.5 hours away. I'd be happy to do what I can. I'm a contractor and have a shop, plasma cutter, and flux-core wire welder. It's not the best, but it was cheap and, with care, gets the job done with a minimum of fuss.
If you can get your car up here to NoVa (I'm within the 200 miles) I went to college at Radford, I can do your quarters. I graduated college with a degree in Comp Sci and now Im a body tech in a high volume insurance shop. And Im always looking for side work. My cell is 540 538 8922. I have a 72 myself that I just got done cutting a used quarter apart for it. Text or call if interested. I have been in car restoration and collision repair biz for over 8 years.
