  1. Here are some pictures of part 01121-00061. Correct for an L24 or L26 rocker cover, according to my R-Drive fiche.
  2. I did notice on two of the caps, the ones with the ivory-coloured "Z", that there is a gold ring around perimeter of the iridescent centres. I didn't notice that one cap was upside down, so I am part of the majority, I guess! I had to take a long look at the picture before I saw what you meant, about the "Z" on one cap being inverted. Great spot!
  3. I don't have the specific colour code for the "Black Pearl"-type wheel infills, but here are a couple of pictures of an unused spare. The grey infill colour on the unrestored original appears a lighter shade than the restored wheel in your image. Saying that, as has been noted a number of times on this site, there will inevitably be shade variations between batches of parts from the OEM supplier(s). To prove that point, I have attached a picture of four NOS centre caps I have for the "Black Pearl"-type wheels, albeit with the same part number, but which illustrate significant shade variations
  4. Hi Cooper260z, My factory-stock, 1978, UK 260z has flat tops fitted. In order to track down this hose, you need to determine the part number from the factory fiche. Below is a screenshot from the US L-Drive fiche. I think the hose you are referring to is number "88", which relates to part "16088-N3300". Despite some US/UK carburettor differences, the part number is the same, for this hose. Looking at ebay, there are currently 2No. available from the same seller at: https://www.ebay.com/itm/DATSUN-240Z-260Z-280Z-FAIRLADY-Z-S30-HOSE-CONNECTING-16088-N3300-JDM-SPARES/202722668547?hash=item2f

    Containment

    Hi Ian, Great thread idea! Attached are a few examples of "containment", including one from "Pardat", who sold authorized Nissan parts through UK dealerships. I like the red, white and blue boxes the most.
  6. I couldn't add any more images to my previous post, so I have uploaded them here. I edited the text too to illustrate the type of grommet I am after, thanks.

    Hi there, I am looking for 2No. excellent condition license light cable rubber grommets, that sit behind the license light and protect the license light cable as it passes through the metal bodywork into the rear hatch (behind the trim panel). I don't think the part is available OEM new, but I can't seem to find the part number on my fiche anyway. I have a UK car, so the license light configuration is different from US models, but the rubber grommet I am looking for is identical. On UK cars the license light is mounted on the rear bumper (the unit above the license plate does not have bulbs in it), so the cable passes through the lower valance, up alongside the wheel well externally and then in through the hatch floor. Therefore, there are two points where the license light cable passes through the car's body, and hence why I am after 2No, grommets (grommets with holes through them for the cable). The image shows the position of the rubber grommet I am looking for on US cars, but on my car this is a blind grommet, not the type I am looking for. I am looking for the type with a hole through the middle. Thanks for looking.

  9. View Advert WTB Genuine Nissan Weatherstrip (76836-N4500) LH I am looking for a NOS, genuine Nissan quarter window weatherstrip (not aftermarket) for my 1977 260Z coupe. This is part number 76836-N4500, for the left hand side. I know there is a generic Nissan replacement part that fits both sides, but I am not after that, thanks. I am happy to purchase both sides of the handed quarter window weatherstrips as a set, i.e. part 76835-N4500 (although I have that already - see image), along with part 76836-N4500, if preferred. Thanks for looking.

  11. Steering wheel rims on later models are finished in hard rubber, like the later model shift knobs. There is a slight difference in the 1977/78 model steering wheel hard rubber rim than earlier type hard rubber rims, in that the former type hard rubber rim has faux "stitching" at the 6 o'clock position, whereas the 1977/78 model does not, I believe (same as on my 1977 UK 260Z, i.e., no faux stitching ).
  12. Evidently, from the photographs, a great deal of work has gone into awakening your car, after years of slumber, but it will be worth it. I think you can safely say that the finish on your brake lines is factory stock, which you will simply have to find a way of replicating. I don't know what the finish to the pipes is, but it is clearly long-lasting, bearing in mind the exposed locations where they are routed, especially under the car. In terms of the air chamber I use for my car, the link is here: https://www.carcoon.com/. Presumably there is something similar in the US available. T
  13. Amazing that you've only ever driven your car a couple of times in wet, or icy weather. I would never get out of the house eight months of the year, if that was the case with my daily driver! Garages constructed of masonry can allow dampness and condensation to form on, and subsequently harm, metal surfaces, even plated finishes. I keep my car in a "Carcoon" air chamber literally all the time (as it's not been on the road since 2002), which protects from condensation, moisture and sudden temperature changes. As to the color specifications, there are a couple of ways I would go about ensur
  14. Attached are some images of a couple of NOS, OEM Nissan, hard brake lines, for my 1977-built 260Z (UK car), if it helps. There is a little bit of shade variance between the two parts, but that would be expected across items manufactured at different times. I don't know if they salt the roads in the US, but those white specks occur on UK cars when the water evaporates from waterborne road salt. I have seen the olive green colour (color) of your hard brake lines on other Nissan parts of that late 1970's era.
  15. I love this thread, and am intending to keep the flat tops on my 1977-built, UK-model, 260Z when it is (eventually) restored. In respect of the front calipers, I have a pair of genuine NOS LH and RH ones, where the images below could be used as a reference for people completing stock restorations. They have a matt, grey, finish in stock form, with various green, blue, black and red paint spots daubed at various locations (see images). One of the calipers also has some white paint daubed on the front of the pad. The caliper bolts have black paint daubed on the bolt heads.
