It has been daily driven for almost 4 years so the paint isn’t in show condition. Looks great ten feet away but up close paint has cracked at the pillars and other edges on the car that experience flex or vibrations. Only three rust repairs were done when the car was bought. Floor pans and frame rails are solid.All of the undercarriage was coated in POR15. Only rust repairs were a spot on the roof by the windshield weatherstrip, passenger rocker to the rear of the car, and battery tray area. Passenger rocker has some rust bubbles coming up and some bubbles coming up at the base of the hatch (Shown in pictures).

This 260Z is well sorted and ready to drive anywhere and enjoy. Fast and reliable.
