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.
