    Seat restoration

    They could potentially be laser cut. Would not take too long to create a set of files using a cad package such as Fusion360 and laser cut them. I have the skills and equipment if there is demand. Do you know what material the plastic is (there are some plastics you should not cut on a laser).
  2. Thanks for this. I was about to do the exact same setup, retrofitting the VA controls into the stock panel. Great to know it can be done relatively easily.

    Fairlady Z - Date of manufacture

    Just to complete and correct the information here. I did further research and found the car is a 1972 version. The Member Kats San provided the following information.

    Datsun-240z Vs Fairlady-z432

    I have one of these stickers on the back of my JDM 1972 Fairlady z. The back panel has been resprayed by the previous owner, (original colour can been seen where some of it has cracked off). . I think they cut the sticker down at the same time. Probably because it was peeling off.

    Found old Z pictures. I’ll start!

    We lived in Tokyo for 3 years. In Sendagaya, near Yoyogi Park. I was about 10. As a blonde headed kid I definitely stood out. Gaijin's were pretty rare those days, Tokyo was much less international back in the 70's. Great memories, really enjoyed the time. I enjoy getting back there.

    whilst not a Z..... We lived in Japan in the 1970's here is a couple of photos of my mums car, I think it is a 1972 Nissan Skyline 2000GT-X (could be a 2000GT-R). Taken in 1975. It was a pretty zippy car, can remember mum flooring it a few times for fun.

    Can you post an updated link to the bulbs on amazon?
  8. Designed and I’m in the process of printing some wheel caps. Laser cut the logos in acrylic. Caps printed in TEPG filament.

    Door panel restore

    I’ve also heard of people using thin stainless steel wire instead of the staples.
  11. Had a clunk in the rear end on big bumps. Think I found out why! Other side was not much better.

    Crane XR700 & Tachometer

    Really happy this post and the community could help you solve the problem. That is the whole point of the forum in my view.

    Crane XR700 & Tachometer

    Attached is photos of my final cleaned up wiring. Hope this helps A couple of points; there are two types of tachometers out there. Three and four wire, they work differently. Mine is a Japanese Fairlady. Some of the wire colors are different to the us cars

    Turn signal dash indicator reversed?!

    I had the same problem. I found it a physical pain to get the bulb out. Not much room there.
