    Could you be so kind as to take more pictures of the plastic substitute for the radio from all angles?    I probably will never get one but I would like to make a "reasonable facsimile" from junk yard parts.

     

    Thanks!

    A sample of some of the Holy Grail parts collecting dust at the shop

    OK - now you have to tell us how this all came about. How does one accumulate all that? - that's the question I have ever time I watch "American Pickers". LOL  I know how I wound up with a bunch of NOS parts - every time I needed a part for a 240Z, I'd order 2 or 3 because the cost of shipping was usually more than the cost of the part. So I'd order 2 or 3 so I wouldn't have to pay the shipping costs again later.

    I have one of the 'Radio Delete' trays too, and have sometimes heard them called a 'Sunglasses Tray' in Japan. It seems to work as well for that purpose as any other:

    Carl, I ended up with my stash of Holy Grail parts through pure serendipity. For the past 30 or so years I've kept in touch with Nissan/Datsun parts availability through careful tea reading combined with help from the guys at my local dealer with whom I've had a relationship for almost 40 years.

    Do you still have those exhaust parts for the 240Z cars?  Are they for sale?

    Not sure whether we can exchange phone numbers, but if yes please reply with your number and I will call you.

    Thanks!

    M3333hp,

    For the past year or so I've been giving a lot of thought about how to best dispose of my Holy Grail parts to the benefit of the Z car community only to be swept up yet again in the rush of serendipity that has been the one consent in my working life as a Datsun Mechanic.

    When the prices of Z cars started to hit the highs I started getting calls asking for consulting help with back to stock restorations. I feel it only fair to make my stash available those customers paying for my time and expertise. I hope you can understand.      Cheers
