Reviews - What do customers think about How to Restore Your Datsun Z-Car?
A very useful book, but you can't use it by itself Sep 29, 2000
This book is great, it takes you through almost all of the steps that you need to completely restore your car, but on a lot of things it merely mentions them and doesn't really tell you a lot about what your supposed to do. What I did was I bought this book and a haynes automotive repair manual(or Chilton's) and I used that for the more technical stuff. This book has 20-30 pages of exploded views of various areas on the cars and also has a list of retailers that sell parts and/or services for the z series. If your trying to restore your car get this book.
80% of what you need to restore your Z Mar 14, 2000
"~I would largely reiterate what the other reviewers have said: this book is the single most comprehensive reference for a partial or ground-up rebuild of your Z. I would have only a couple of negative things to say about it:"~ you are told to adjust the flange angle on the Johnson Rod strut, it can leave you scratching your head...
Your Z-car will love you for it! Sep 14, 1999
I saw this book long before I bought it, and after buying it, I was very sorry I took so long to get it! It covers most every aspect of the full restoration of this beloved car. From the frame-up or a little at a time. This book has the info you need, and more. The info inside can not be purchased, borrowed, or stolen for a better price! Alone, this book is not enough, but it's a great way to get the spark ignited. (No single book could possibly have everything, I know, I have bought almost all of 'em.)
title of book is an excellent summary of its contents Mar 5, 1999
perhaps the last chapter should include a trailer shopping guide for the shear fact it would be sickening to restore a Z this much and then abuse it again by driving it. this book is worshiped more than likely by people who like trailer queens, and the author needs a hair cut.(buttttt) i did enjoy seeing someone else doing the work for once. and i would recommend the book to others for its various useful tips.
Execellent but qualified Dec 10, 1998
This book gave an excellent overview of how to restore your z car and a lot of interesting bacground stuff. But was technically weak. I still found myself going to the repair manuals for many things.
