    [2014] What did you do to/with your Z today?

    Thread Starter: Arne

    Off to ontario!

    Thread Starter: northernz

    Hey all, I am starting a thread to document the restoration of my blue on blue '71. I have driven the car for 4 years now, and have finally accepted that I lack the time and heated space and, let's face it, the skill and determination to do the work myself! I have always admired the work done by...

I did check the current flow with the LEDs, and it is now 2.6A. I didn't measure the current before the...
