    I’d like to do new Panasport wheels

    Mike, they set me back $1,258, including lug nuts w/ 1 lock/wheel and CA tax. No shipping charge since I drove to his shop and picked them up. I still have to decide on which summer tires to buy.

    I’d like to do new Panasport wheels

    I just drove over to Classic Datsun Motorsports in Vista, CA to pick up a set of Panasport Z-Light 16x7's. Les Cannaday ( les@classicdatsun.com ) is great to work with. Wheels are still wearing the blue shrink wrap. Les' Panasport distributor said they weigh 17.4 lbs each.
  4. Anyone know what font size/style is needed to stamp the car & engine numbers onto the blank plates?

    Next Gen Z? I'd buy this....!

    That's hot! A street version of that car would be amazing.

    I’d like to do new Panasport wheels

    You guys have spurred me into action! This morning I showed my wife nice pictures of two Datsun Zs. One had 16x7 Panasport wheels, the other, 16x7 Koenig Rewind wheels. I didn't mention which was which, or costs. Right away, she selected the Panasports. I told her the relative pricing and she just shrugged her shoulders. Now I need to try to find who currently has the Panasports with the best pricing.

    WTB: Door Guide

    Jamal, I haven’t yet determined if the ‘73 240z part is the same as the 280z part; however, I have someone sending me the 280z door guide. Thanks for your offer to help!

    Spare tire option

    Hi Jeff. I’m using a 2007-2012 Nissan Sentra spare tire that’s 125/70/16. It bolts right up and is lighter than the original full size spare tire. Look for them on eBay...they are readily available and not pricey.

    I’ll have to look into that Jamal. Thanks.

    WTB: Door Guide

    I’m looking for part #36 from the figure, below. Mine has one of the threaded studs snapped off. If you have one for sale, please either send me a forum message or send me an email at jimr20165 at yahoo dot com Thanks!!
  11. Here's mine. It looks like I'm, from the future. 😁
  12. She probably had a “gravitar” (globally recognized avatar) linked to her profile here. She could update it, and it would ripple through all the various forums she’s a member of, all without actually signing into each of the forums. Either that, or she’s a super spy.

    WTB - Driver Side Window Roller

    I just received a good used one yesterday. Now, Z Car Depot has reproduction rollers in stock. Great timing...haha! A big shout out goes to @Mark Maras for pointing that to me today! 👍
