  1. Yea mines way better too. Maybe it needs too much work. we still can’t see underneath and that could be really bad.
  2. It does need a lot of work but the price is reasonable for a low number model as of this reporting. https://www.ebay.com/itm/303079719646?ul_noapp=true
  3. That looks amazing. How'd you measure the contour? Also I was thinking of making the OD a little smaller and threading it.
  4. great pics and info. That's not very reassuring to save parts. I'm going to try to press out the plastic. I also am planning on using it as a template to make a replacement out of aluminum or stainless.
  5. Anyone know how to remove the chromed plastic ring from an old knob without breaking it? I have a spare and want to refurb it. There replacement Nissan ones aren't the same shape as the originals.
  6. Iv'e been watching first season (1977 I think) CHiP's episodes on Amazon and there's so many awesome cars on the freeways and general traffic. So far Iv'e seen at least five S30's. One thing I thought was funny was that gasoline stations had prices of 57 cents per gallon. I remember when my dad was furious when it hit $1.00.
  7. keep pestering him. it looks great. what's the VIN?
  8. I say ol chap, nice set of wings you have there
  9. That makes no sense except maybe the import fees are too high.
  10. So I got the set from the bay seller and they are very good. they are the correct dimensions and are made of ABS. My only gripe is that the screws supplied are very tight and I think the ID of the parts is a little small. I used some Elmer's Dry lube on them and they are a little easier. The new screws are smalIer diameter than stock. I definitely recommend these for restoring light buckets. Another interesting change that I found and never read about before from series one to later versions of the lights is the recessed mounting locations of these nuts. On my original ones there's a stamped area with serrations so they don't spin. On later buckets I have, it's a more pronounced full rectangular stamping. Also on the early buckets there's no holes for the locating nibs on the new gaskets. I drilled 4mm holes so the gaskets fit. Another "why would they do that" find.
  11. My original stock unit is a mono Hitachi AM with signal seek.
  12. What happened to true styling of sports cars? As mentioned before it looks like a Lexus and Miata mashup. All those fake vents can’t help aero either. Most of the chassis and certainly the engine are directly from BMW. They can keep this one.
  13. Next I need to find the rubber grommets for where the wires go through the back. Zcardepot has them for $36.50 but that seems hugely expensive. https://zcardepot.com/products/headlight-bucket-wire-seal-rubber-pair-240z-260z-280z
