Looking for Auto Body Sheet S30

Post by sszeb » Mon Nov 30, 2020 12:49 pm

Hey guys,

I'm look for an auto body sheet for an S30 (240z)

Have only managed to find the car-o-liner data for a 280z, but unsure if any difference between the two would effect these measurements

There are some differences between body shells the biggest being that the 280's have subframe rails that go all the way under the car where as the 240's stop about 2/3 the way back.

The only other difference between the bare shells I can find any mention on are 280 shell has a different floorpan than a 240, much lower and thicker chassis rail, front radiator panel is lower, the fuel tank is bigger and the spare wheel well is just about half as high, lastly the rear strut towers are about 2,5" higher.


Will attach if anyone is after it

There is a different version of that picture in the Service Manual that has lots of measurements on it. Quite small so hard to read but may be a supplement to what you have. PM me your email address and I will email you a scan. Same picture as this link shows https://www.viczcar.com/forums/topic/93 ... surements/

And try googling "240z body measurements" for a few other similar links
