  1. Road & Track's latest version of a familiar topic: http://www.roadandtrack.com/car-culture/a10348895/what-you-need-to-know-before-buying-a-1970-1973-datsun-240z/
  2. Here's a color diagram from 510maester Kelvin Dietz that doesn't solve the immediate problem but is a good thing to have handy: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByCvxnHNk90SSmpJOXMxekR2cnc/view

  4. Start by asking Bruce or Z Therapy -- they have some idea of what to do.

  6. Re: Daniel Stern -- he has a reputation for being eccentric. You either take his recommendation or he shuts off the conversation. Many satisfied customers and many perplexed by his "customer service". If you can work with him, things generally produce the desired results. Google shows this time and again. The light and wiring kits would seem usable. The wiring kit looks to have the plugs and relays you'd need, with the understanding that these things are generally "universal fit". Hella is regarded better than Autopal for optical quality, pattern, cutoff, etc. and that's what matters most, but Cibie still seems the tops by comparison. Unfortunately their prices are at the top also. Any replacement will likely be an improvement over old, stock bulbs, so it really matters how much you drive at night, require brighter light (older eyes), and can afford to spend. Google specific products when you have things narrowed down, just for backup information.
  7. This is the 240 discussion but many details remain the same regarding relays, harness mods, etc. The relay is basically a remote switch for a second circuit that gets the "good stuff" more directly to the lights, providing many happy electrons, lumens, et al.
  8. To be fair, this doesn't give you a full evaluation of the product, its installation, its benefits -- just an area of concern. For the price, it would be good to get the whole picture. As mentioned in the 510 thread, this is a common component in cars today so there must be a way to make things work.
  9. Reference this page regarding the business transfer to Futofab: http://www.wolfcreekracing.com/ http://www.futofab.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=175:datsun-wcr-cv-axle-kits&catid=38:datsun-drivetrain&Itemid=122 Also might want to keep an eye on this topic -- if it didn't already get your attention:
  10. This thread from the 510 Realm about lubrication problems and failures with aftermarket CV conversions relates to the Z as well -- FYI or for additional input: http://www.the510realm.com/viewtopic.php?f=30&p=261930&sid=c5dd284c5161441c2d4b9bc3307dbe02#p261930

  13. Related question, maybe its own topic: Will repro vinyl fit over insulation like Dynamat on the tranny tunnel? Seems like it could ...
  14. More upcoming toys to add to the search. Be great to have a forum corner for this small stuff
