    I am on the last stage of fixing/restoring my 240, all i have left now is paint and a new windshield. Which took a fair amount of time to complete on my salary and experence.
    I'll post some before and after pictures once i get the exterior cleaned up.

    My question is: Where would be the cheapest place to buy a windsheild for my car. a 1989 240sx coupe?
    i say cheap because i am a highschool student working crappy hours at sobeys. all i need is the glass i know someone that will install it for me.

    I would try the junk yards around here, or see if someone is parting one out in the bargain hunter, that might be harder to get though...good luck
    which struts and springs did you go with?
