    New From Seattle - 78 280Z (for now)

    Hey guys. First forum with this car. Just trying to get things mechanically sound then control the rust and on to paint.

    Was late so I figured I'd add a little more

    Recently (February) bought a 280Z as a project car, didn't quite know what I was getting myself into. The wires man, the wires. This is another site with a ton of great builds and info that I plan to utilize as much as possible, especially since I'm on the hunt for another JNC for a daily and who knows about the next project.

    A little info on the car:

    L28 from a 76 that is supposedly built (N42 Block and Head)
    Bob Sharp Racing Manifold with a Holley 390 (Ported EFI Intake Manifold came with the car)
    16 x 7 Enkei 3-Piece wheels (I've been told they're 3 piece but they do have 2 welds all the way around each wheel)

    Future plans:

    Brakes
    Research EFI vs 4bbl or possibly sidedraft
    Figure out the wiring issues
    Contain and eliminate the rust monster
    Paint & Wrap most likely

    Very nice. I really hope the motor has all those internals. I hate seeing people get ripped off. Welcome to JNC by the way. Very nice Z.
