  3. WOW - what a time machine! Congrats on locating this one. VIN and build date please.
  4. Nissan did a disservice to all of the S30's by running high amperage current for the headlights/taillights and turnsignals thru the fuse block and then on to the respective switches. As the contacts in the switches became burned, resistance increased and backed up to fuse block resulting in damaged fuse contacts and melted wires. The recommendations above to use lower amperage bulbs and get all the damaged wiring repaired are spot on. And yes... you don't just want to plug in a new fuse block without cleaning up the issues. With all that said and done, you'll still be running the primary current thru the fuse block and switches - just less of it. I strongly recommend you invest in Dave Irwin's excellent relay kits for the headlights and turnsignals. Feeding the clean power directly from the battery to the lights will make a huge improvement in lighting quality and remove these high amperage current flows from your dash area. Just my $0.02 worth - if that much! https://www.datsun-240z-upgrades.net/
  5. Pretty cool video but I absolutely shuddered when I saw people around sawing and cutting machinery without safety glasses - a sign of the times. Thanks for sharing.
  6. It's all relative, right? 😄
  7. This might help in showing the amount of off-center for the spare tire well.
  8. Uh oh... a familar Safari Gold car showed up unexpectedly in the latest Nissan Stories!!! 😄 https://usa.nissanstories.com/en-US/releases/hidden-design-elements-in-the-all-new-nissan-z
  9. Here are the trumpets, originally red plastic - I painted them black to better blend in. The compressor is mounted to the inner fender below the flow control valve. In retrospect, I wish I had mounted it about 4" more forward. I tapped one of the OE horn power wires to drive the compressor - a small red wire zip tied to the wiring bundle going thru the port in the radiator support. .
  10. I've had a set of dual-trumpet FIAMM air horns on my car for over 45 years. Not needed very often but get the job done when required! The trumpets are installed on the front side of the radiator support to get that sound right out front.
  11. That would be "crazy like a fox!" 😉
  12. As always - your car, your choices. If you plan to mod your car noticeably (flares, body kit, interior, ...etc.) then the engine color will make little difference. However, if you plan on keeping a stock appearance (you mention "value") then its best to stay consistent with the factory's version of stock.
  13. Well... I have referred a lot of local work to them - pretty much every resto in this area. 😉
  14. That's interesting news about TPP. I picked up an order from them about 3 weeks ago and there was no mention of no longer supporting my hobby level work.
  15. That looks like one of the washers for the tension/compression arm. There should be two per side.
