    I.D. This Steering Wheel!!!!!!!

    Unless we have the wheels side by side ( which I have in the past by the way) you have no grounds to tell me that there is no difference between the two I have owned other than deterioration. Thanks for your help I am done.

    Again though, the one you have is like the one I had; with much higher quality rubber.

    So the real stitched leather covering I have seen on some wheels (OEM and aftermarket) was not done by Izumi? I guess it would be par for the course to call a foam rubber steering wheel "leather" since they are also calling a plastic one "wood".

    I think the steering wheel probably is an Izumi which is minus the leather cover as there is slight sun damage on the top of the foam. Gives me a real clear plan as to restoring it!
  7. Metal hatch grilles were available on some 510 wagons. I don't know WHICH years of 510 goon, but I do know that I pulled a pair myself a long time ago. Seems like one of those popular Nissan cost cutting measures from back in the day; "Hmm, these auto trim items are too expensive to produce made out of metal, we can do it cheaper from plastic!".....

    Thanks. I have owned an Izumi steering wheel before and it was foam rubber like the one I have now. The thing is the positvely identified Izumi foam rubber was much higher quality than the foam rubber which is on the wheel I have currently. There was no deterioration whatsoever to the denser Izumi foam and it remained attached to the substructure even with a few elapsed decades. The foam rubber on the one I have now looks and feels one exactly like a stock 260z or 280z steering wheel. The foam is not that dense and has come detached from the substructure at the top of the wheel as a result of sun exposure. I will not rule out Izumi though as the shape and description are very close.

    Exactly, and once the sticker is removed I have a generic steering wheel that might have been made in Pratt Falls, Iowa!!

    Hmm. Thanks. Probably better to leave it place however.
  11. I rescued this from a Series One 240z part out. In the original picture of it that the seller snapped, I mistakenly identified it as a 1600 Bluebird SSS steering wheel. Up close though the rim is not that plastic imitation wood, it is foam rubber like a 74-78 s-30 ZCAR. I think it is Nissan as it utilizes a 240z horn button mechanism. Anyone have any ideas?

    Harada Antenna Repair Thread?

    Is there a 240z Harada semi-automatic radio antenna repair thread on this site? I seem to remember seeing one years ago but I cannot find it. And now I need to fix an antenna. Thanks, Daniel P.
