240z Inspection Light Source?


Recommended Posts

oh, don't tell us how many you have!

It will drive the price down on the 25 I plan to sell at $300 each! There goes my early retirement plans... ;)

That E-bay unit looks like the P/N 26740-10W00 used in the 720 trucks up to the late 80's. It has the datsun/nissan symbol on the lens where the early model P/N 26740-89902 doesn't seem to have it.

Last year you could still get them through Nissan for $40 all be it with some searching. Now the NOS seems to be getting harder to find.

Chas, I am very much interested in your inspection light lenses. - As an engineer, I appreciate very much your story of how you procured the equipment an the developed the process. - As a person in need, I was happy to come across your posting. I recently crumbled the original lens on a friend's '81 ZX. Needless to say, I feel really really bad about it & want to fix the light. Do you have any on hand that can be purchased? If not, would you be willing run another batch? The pricing that you discussed in your original posts are very attractive, but I can understand if the pricing needs to change. With best regard ... and with fingers crossed for luck,TAMU_PackratEagle Lake, Texas. USA

I have a few new lenses with tiny blemish that I can sell cheap or I have new lenses.

When you (EuroDat) shipped my rubber brake line bushings, I wondered where the inspection light cover came from! Now I know, it was another great piece of artwork from you Chas! Thanks for the lens cover bonus! Now I have to look up your taillight project....

This topic stirred me into cleaning an old original inspection light I have.

In the process I noticed this glyph on one of the mounting tabs.

It has the text "NILES" on a banner on a globe held by a crab!  :wacko:

Does anyone know if this crab is culturally symbolic???   :huh:

Maybe somewhere at the back of their warehouse, there's an unopened carton of brand-new Z inspection lights!
