Sorry im probably too late for you. And I too am struggling to remember. Are you able to tighten the tensioner with it moved away from the belt and then when you slip the belt on then release the tensioner and retighten?

However wouldn't surprise me if I ended up with more downforce/ground effect holes that need to be welded up.

It's an Air Hammer/Power Chisel . . . . one uses it with a subtle touch . . . . not like a Jack Hammer.  ;)

Hi ,
Does any one know where I can buy new or excellent condition Alfetta GTV Door harness seal, the ones between the hinges / pillar to the door.
95
Wonder if a Power Chisel would be a better option, or perhaps an Air Hammer

They have various attachments that can be fitted.

Just a thought.

Some may say an excellent thought as I didn't know such a thing exists :o. However wouldn't surprise me if I ended up with more downforce/ground effect holes that need to be welded up. But I would highly recommend a power tool over doing this with a 5000 year old method like an ancient Egyptian.

Aesthetically it looks better and there is a lot of sound deadening in the driver and passenger footwells. This just one coat.
98
Hind sight is 20/20 so get a thinner chisel for the valleys.
99
The valleys in between the ribs are very thin metal so very easy to chip or put a hole through. It also goes on a decline from the front of the car to the middle.

180 grit sandpaper doesn't do much. 60 grit is a bit better. Was going to go down to to bare metal but don't have the equipment to go in the valleys.

It never occurred to me till now but the 250 swb was named after the engine cylinder capacity or something similar whereas the 240z was name after 2.4l engine. So they copied the design and even naming convention  and in a weird round about the new 400z shape is essentially a part tribute to 250swb.
