  1. Id like to ask if anyone has any feedback regarding the following item: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/FRONT-BUMPER-BAR-OVERRIDER-RUBBER-INSERTS-suit-DATSUN-NISSAN-240Z-260Z/132883410618?hash=item1ef077eeba:g:5-EAAOSwNWxZ7sd2&frcectupt=true Specifically looking for how close a match they are to original Nissan OEM parts but also looking for feedback regarding quality etc. The company is based in Brisbane, Australia. A direct link to their website is here: https://www.newoldcarcompany.com.au/ Thanks in advance for any feedback posted.
  2. Hi All Been a while since I have posted anything here; have been watching/reading though. This is not only confined to the Z series of cars. I have a 1969 Datsun 1000 / B10, which was not sold in the USA (was sold in Canada though); Kats will probably be familiar with the model as it is gaining popularity in Japan. When I read this post I checked the original jack I have for it. It is stamped "O A R", which translates to 18th January, 1969. Sorry I dont have any photos of it, but the stamping looks the same as seen on the Z car jacks. I am wondering if this applies to other model Datsuns

    Hi Greg. Would you mind posting the link as I wouldn't mind checking this out. Thanks.
  4. Hi Craig Joseph here. I did a little research into mirrors fitted to "Australian" spec cars a few years ago. The mirrors you currently have fitted to your car are correct for the very early cars sent to Australia. I believe that they may have been fitted either on the dock or by dealerships; the cars may have been shipped with the holes drilled in the fenders and rubber/plastic blanking plugs fitted. The black bullet type mirrors were original/correct for the later cars till about 72 when the standard door fitted chrome mirror was used through 72/73. The black bullet type mirrors are now NLA f
  5. Any chance of posting a pic and details of the diode used? Thanks
  6. FWIW, Atsugi also supplied the water pump. Joseph
  7. Hi Kats Thanks for thinking of me and also thanks for posting the Nissan part number of the particular hose as I requested. Do you have any smart ideas as to how to make a copy of the other master vac hose; ie the one which runs from the check valve to the balance tube? Any ideas as to a hose which I could use? Joseph
  8. Hi Kats The master vac hose which you have for your Z432 looks to be the same for the RHD specification 240-Z. I am very interested to know what the Nissan part number of the "fuel hose" is which you used to make your reproduction. If you could please post the details at your convenience it would be appreciated. Thanks again Joseph
  9. Although this doesnt pertain to the interior of the car, what about the little plastic grease reservoir which is on the steering rack? Anyone playing with this one at the moment? Joseph
  10. Hi Will I dont see this on the list and as it is unavailable, wanted to suggest that it may be viable to reproduce one? I know I would snap one up! Joseph
  11. Hi Kats Those copy radiator hoses look beautiful; any plans for Mr Nishi to remake them for the S30? The bottom radiator hose for the 432 looks the same as the S30, does it not? I am sure there would be a large market for the copy hoses, but will it take away from the "specialness" of cars like Kats and Bob Speights 72? Joseph
  12. Hi Stephen Many thanks for making the effort to post a scan of the article in question. Hi Chris Does seem to be the same car IMO. Owners name in both articles is Todd and, from memory as I havent read the article which you posted for some time, it mentions that Pierre arranged a set of original style wheels and hubcaps, along with air filter etc, in order to prep the car for the article which you have posted. Joseph
  13. If someone is able to post a scan of this article to the website it would greatly be appreciated. We dont have this mag available here in Australia. Joseph
  14. Hi Chris I believe that this VZ is (as per Carls registery): VIN: HLS30 00630 Production Date: 01 / 70 Color Body /Int: Red/Black Orig.Eng.Number: Eng. Number: Owner: Auto Garage Motoyama City/State/Cntry: Japan Sold By Z Store: Nissan Charity Auction IZCC Member#: Comments: Offered For Sale At $50K USD e-mail: Date Registered: 18 July 05 Reported by: Kats {Katsuhiko Endo} in Japan Joseph
  15. Hi Kats Nicely done and thanks for providing all of us with an insight into how your car came to be in the immaculate condition that it is in today. Looks like you did the right thing in holding out for that "special" car. Joseph
