  1. Past hour
  2. The only color that makes me question the LED thing is the niveau ruite-sproeierreservior. Blue LED's weren't common in 1981. The rest of the colors could easily be LED. Can you take pics of the backs of the connectors on your display module so I can see the wire colors? I'll find that FSM page again and see if I can make heads or tails out of it.

  4. That's exactly what I was thinking. I feel so inadequate!

    COVID-19

    But can you leave the sheep in the barn alone? Sorry had to go there. I agree, America is a vast place, it’s not Compton where most of us live except Captain Obvious. Philly is the place of brotherly love until there is no TP!
  6. If there are just two connections and it's a simple spring loaded solenoid valve inside, it really shouldn't matter which pin is which. It should operate the same regardless. But if there's anything else in there (like even a protection diode), polarization would matter.
  7. All perspectives are different: I grew up with guns but was never interested in them. My dad was a moose and deer hunter and had a few .303's. My brother and I shared a .22 since age 8 & 7 and would go target shooting every now and then, but it was nothing special. Where I live, you can leave the keys in the car and the doors unlocked so no one thinks much about guns for protection.

    COVID-19

    So the Federal background check has to happen for each weapon each time a purchase is made. The weapons serial number is placed on the form and act as a tracking mechanism if the weapon is found at a crime. My father had a 9mm stolen from his San Antonio hotel room in 1995. In 2014 he received a call from a police department in NC stating the handgun was used during a home invasion. They tracked the gun back to original owner (him) when the Background check was accomplished. They ending up sending my Dad his gun back and I own it now. So here is the connection to Covid-19. Guns and ammo have intrinsic value. They’re value really doesn’t go down. I sold a pistol last week. He paid me $540 cash for a weapon I bought in 2007 and shot many times. I made money on the sale. They retain value and are easily sold for $$ or other resources. Try that with a blender or almost other consumer products. 2 - people watch too many movie and think they’ll be Rambo but seriously people see them as a way to protect their family if Law And Order brakes down. My father used to tell as a young boy, “99.999% of the time you will never need a gun, but the .001% of the time you do, you really need it and it will could be the difference between life and death”. Not sure if there is any truth to that but he was a 2 tour Vietnam Marine and looked at the world different than most and had a clear case of PTSD. Guns are insurance in an insure world.

  9. Today
  10. Not a video but still photographs, an eclectic mix of images from the dawn of photography up to the 1960's, but mostly historical American images. You could spend 24hrs a day for the rest of the quarantine and you would never get to the end of the collection. https://www.shorpy.com/
  11. Will do, thanks Greg!
  12. More Evil from China and WHO puppets: The WHO ****er is a Canadian from Nfld sadly 😞 https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-52088167
  13. It looks like there are some lights in the top and right side of the unit, but i'm not opening this unit as it is in great condition. Since the unit has about 9 different wires, each display is simply activated by the ancillary sensor. If i had these sensors i could make a complete system for my own 280zx! The warning module is already in my possession
  14. Hahahaha… yeah… one? it has got 3 of those! The switch has one, the print on the upper and on the right have both one.. haha but on the other end there is a 10 pole connector.. with only one black.. (yeah somewhere in the yellow sleeve is a 3 into one black..) Furthermore, i think i have seen such a display work long time ago and the STOP in this display is red.. (OK is green) and the rest is lit a sort of orange.. No... even more colors! Now i know where i saw one.. in a brochure! Learn a little dutch on the side CO! Hihihi… i think the display "car54280zx" (Don't know his first name.) see's is the last one.. haha "defect" signaal (signal) ! As you see there are 4-5 different colors in the display.. I got this pic out of a may 1st 1979 folder. btw.. the battery level.. going to be a little bit difficult with todays battery's 😕

  16. We know being trapped at home can be boring, and not all of us can use this all this time in the garage. Luckily, here’s another JNC-themed way to liven up the quarantine and possibly occupy any kids that are … Continue reading → Read more at JNC Magazine
  17. Thanks Richard! You are too modest😉
  18. Hope something comes up for you. Good luck!
  19. I have two sets from 240s, but no idea whether or not they are interchangeable with 280s. Let me know if mine will work for you.
  20. Wow! Fantastic work. Personally I wouldn't know where to start. Excuse me while I go back to changing oil and cleaning spark plugs.

  24. Well here goes nothing ... So far so good .... grrrrr - TABCO 🤬🤬🤬. That will need to be fixed .... Inside looks good! With the fender on ... grrr -TABCO 🤬🤬🤬🤬 But the rest is workable ... Next up - same drill on the passenger side ...
  25. An old mentor used to say "re-skinning a door is part of the basic skill set..." So here goes ... Ground off the edges with a 40 grit flap disk - easy peasy Decided to cut it just below the body line since there will be some filler required here anyways ... Cut it with the air powered body saw and a cutting disk .... Inside is about what I expected .... I didn't have all my PPE available to bead blast the door so I just hit it with shop vac, wire wheel and a bit more Contour SCT .... Next up - fit the door frame to the car. That will be a huge test since the floors and inner/outer rockers have all been replaced. Guess we'll find out if it's all straight LOL....
