  1. What can I do you for mate ? 1x new sticker or...?
  2. Hi - good photo showing red, white and blue with the name 'Datsun' : can't miss it ! Noted that the word 'anniversary' isn't that legible and it could have read 'years' in bigger test but I feel it had to be that word - it's recognised worldwide and always associated with Nissan. But....the laurel leaves and '50' scream at you - I think. I'll sell the stickers seperately and in anticipation have already ordered a series with just 'Z' and not '240Z' for our later-model cousins and whale-herders. 1x sticker posted = US$3.5 or two for $6 (if you have a friend nearby wanting one to save on some postage).
  3. Yes...pick-ups etc...I think that that the red/blue was a fad in the '80s - no ?
  4. I always associated blue and red stripes like that with Martini Racing and therefore Porsches and Lancias. Cheers.

    Nice update - thanks. This stuff works very well from top to bottom : https://www.demon-tweeks.co.uk/motorsport/heat-shielding-protection/nimbus-gii-heat-shield ok, it'll hide your new, shiny header but what counts is that all works well together. The next step forwards for more performance is to completely isolate the intake side from the radiator pushing hot air into that side !
  6. Copied from another site where you posted the same comments. Hiya Rickers. All fair points and we're all entitled to our own view of things. I drew some inspiration from Nissans' anniversary badges (10 years of S and 50 years of Nissan (see attached images) and gold is obvious for 50 years. Next, the badge is only 80mm in diameter and for it to be seen under a shaded grill (from the bonnet/hood), it needs to have clear and distinct colours. A white background was therefore ideal and in any case, 80mm all round is bigger then, for example, your idea. After that, keep the colours simple, not only because more colours cost more money and where mine has 2x (black and gold), yours (for ex) has double that but more colours on an already small image, at distance and shaded losed its' impact. Also, I figured that the word 'DATSUN' would speak for itself irrespective as to whether or not I used period colours schemes...ask yourself, if you removed the 'Z', would you look at your image and think Datsun Z / 240Z ? It could be almost anything and not specifically automobile related. I'm not having a go at you and there are perhaps other designs which might have worked too ; I'm trying simply to emphasise that I thought it through and I figured that the most cost-effective* and 'punchy' image that clearly got the message across was that which I've presented here. *After paying the molds, manufacture, shipping and then covering the cost of shipping it out to you (envelope+postage) and a free sticker (which cost to make etc), there really isn't a great margin and what I make I shall be contributing to our national clubs' first really big indoor classic-car salon next November to celebrate the Zs' 50 years....so all for a good cause ! My aim is to make some serious noise worldwide so that after 50 years hard work, the Z is truly and ubiquitously treated with all the respect it deserves as a true classic car with a full and varied competition pedigree !

    Yep - like I said, there is no best or better, there is what suits you, your engine, budget, hearing aid and driving style......and even then we might criticise your taste anyway ! We hear the same re blocks and heads - which is 'best'......how long is a piece of string ? What we all like, I'm sure, is choice and luckily for S30s, there is plenty of that.
  9. New Fujitsubo Exhaust System to be Released

    Some may argue differently and Nissan made different header types. There is no 'better' , no 'best', simply what suits your engine (size and specification) AND the style in which you drive (read here use of the car ie street, street 'n track, competition track...) and then to really through in the more personal variables : budget and also personal taste and preference.
  10. New Fujitsubo Exhaust System to be Released

    I beg to differ : twin pipes will perform differently (regardless of cross-sectional areas) compared to a single pipe - I thought that we had discussed and agreed upon that and why Nissan offered it as stock on S20 engined S30s (and Skylines) and as an option on other S30s.

    You mean thickness ? How thick is it ?
  12. New Fujitsubo Exhaust System to be Released

    So, how does the twin pipe system 'package' better on the car than a single pipe ?

    Praying won't hurt either - looking forward to the photos - thanks.
