240Z Parking Light upgrade harness's for Sale

Recommended Posts

I am now selling the "Parking Light Upgrade Harness" that was mentioned earlier this month. After a lot of research and as far as I can tell, It will work on all 240Z's. If the 260Z or 280Z's headlight switch's plug are anything like the 240's, the new harness might even work for them as well. not sure yet.

I'll do some more research on the 260 and 280Z's, but for now, I'm ready to take and recieve orders. And now for the final price, which has the S/H included in said price. After ordering, TAX, assembly labor and every thing else I put into these harness's, the final price is.......

$37.00 inside the lower 48 states. The price will obviously be higher if I have to ship it over borders or oceans. If this price seems too high, consider the following supply list and prices I pay to make the harness,

The kit includes...

7.5 ft of black 12 ga. wire ($1.00)(black blends and looks more stock than red)

1 fuse holder with a 15 amp fuse ($1.50) (for safety)

1 30/40 automotive relay ($3.00)

1 relay socket ($0.75)(makes changing the relay easier and less confusing)

2 OEM style 6 pin sockets (1 male ($5.00) and 1 female ($5.50)

16 new solid brass terminals (aprox. $0.40 each) totaling ($6.40)

1 simple page of instructions

For a total of $23.15

in parts, and thats not even including tax or labor or shipping.

I will also post installation sheet on this forum so people can see how easy it is to install.

MONEY ORDERS ONLY!!!!! I Don't want to use my paypal cause it's a pain in the azz and cost too much to use, So DON"T Paypal me!!!!

I generally use Priority Mail from U.S.P.S. Please remember to CLEARLY print your return address so I know who to send it to. I'm looking at about a 1 week turn-around (which means about 1 week from the time you put your money order in the mail to the time you recieve your new harness)

Sorry for the inconvenience but They charge me to use it and it's easier to cash a money order and not have it show up on my I.R.S Audit.

P.S.

If any one has access to both 240Z's and 260Z's or even a 280Z and can compare the 240z's headlight switch's 6-pin plug to that of the 260 and 280z, I'll bet I could expand the parking light harness to that area.

The main thing I'm looking for is "where the green wire w/ a blue stripe and the green/white stripe wires are located in comparison to the 240Z's headlight switch 6-pin plug. Any help would be greatly appreciated by more than just me.

Thanks in advance,

Dave.

So if I'm understanding the information here there is no cutting/tapping/splicing of the original wiring correct? This is avoided by use of the white molex connectors right?

I asked Dave this question in a PM and he confirmed that you wouldn't have to alter the OEM wiring.

Garth,

The only thing you have to do is run a fused power wire from the battery, through the firewall (using the stock rubber gromet, Through the dash and over to the steering column and into the relay socket.disconnect the 6-pin plug on the headlight switch, connect the new plugs to both ends of said plugs (in the form of a "T"), mount the relay and ground wire using one of the four bolts holding the steering column in place, and you're done.

No cutting, tapping or anything complicated or destructive to the Z. (I promise) the harness can be removed as easily as it went in.

look at the picture on the ADD and you'll see the mounting hole for the relay, the "T" connection and the wire that connects to the battery via a ring terminal. The whole thing will take less than a half an hour.

How's that,

Dave

the only thing you have to do to the car is put a wire thru a rubber boot, bolt a wire to the positive terminal, mount a relay with a stock bolt, and remove one plastic panel and put it back on after you have made a connection to the headlight switch.

That's it, I designed it with you and the sanktity of your Z in mind.

Great job on both the design on the relay system and also the instructions. Based on the quality of the headlite relay system for which I was one of your early customers, I will send you a money order for this system. I'm looking foward to some better illumination for my gauges ........ using a flashlight at nite for my aging eyes is rather crude.

You are providing the 240Z community a great service for a very reasonable price. Keep up the good work!

Dave-

I'm looking at a 77 280 switch and this is how it looks on the switch side of the plug.

Reading counter-clockwise from the mark the wires are coded as follows:

1 - Blue

2 - Yellow with Green stripe

3 - Blue with Yellow stripe

4 - Green with Blue stripe

5 - Green with White stripe

6 - Blue with Red stripe

B - Red with Blue stripe (I think it said "B" on the diagram)

- not used

L - Yellow with Black stripe

W - Blue with white stripe

Hope this is any help.

I'd be interested in one of your kits as well for my 78.

couple things, The more orders I see (on here or thru E-mail or P.M.'s) the more parts I'll order and harness's I'll make. But I need to know the "want" before I try and fill the "needs"

A little reminder, They are $37.00 and that also covers S/H costs.

And for those of you who have written me asking for a little something on the side (wink. wink.) I can only make them when I have the funding.:ninja:

I wanted to say thanks to all of you who have raved, bragged, and given good and great reviews about the "headlight relay upgrade harness"

I just spent 2 hours looking over every forum on headlights, harness's and anything else pertaining to the subject. I read more than a few reviews out loud to my wifeand she said "you must be doing something right, for them to write all that and even defend your harness to others".

Few more things...

Jim Coffey, You check was recieved and your "parking light harness goes in the mail today. Thanks for being the first on this new venture of mine.

Bryan Pilati, Thank you soooooo much for your patience, Your harness is boxed and being shipped out today.

Bryan Ray, I got your money order and your harness's should be in the mail by mid next week (around the 2/1/06)

Thanks again to every one who has been involved in any way, shape or form in the ordering, making, and reviews of the headlight and parking light harness's.

Much love and appreciation,

Dave in WA. State.
