I am getting ready to restore my 78 280z. It needs it all top to bottom. Any suggestions or petfalls to watch for? Does anyone know any experts on the subject in Charlotte, NC? What are the best aftermarket alternatives? Thanks.

Mine needs a driver's side rear quarter panel, and driver's side floor. There is a HUGE hole under the gas pedal and the rest is flakes of rust that have held together. I'm going to cut it all out and pop rivet sheet metal and tar it all up. When I'm done the car may look like Frankenstein but it will be solid. The car needs nothing mechanically and runs excellent.

Good luck! Have fun.
