  1. Alright guys, the final prices are here. Frist there is still no supplier for the raw glass the manufacturer would need to produce lighter door glass or rear hatch glass....they are still working on it thou. But they will go in production with the windscreens now. There will be two thicknesses available. One that consists of two 1,6mm panes which actually got a bit cheaper and one that is made out of two 2,1mm panes. Both blue tinted like OEM. Both with DOT and E Sign. 2,1/2,1mm 240€ 1,6/1,6mm 390€ That price is excluding TAX but includes shipping within GERMANY. So for all others interested outside of germany the manufacturer needs your address to calculate the exact shipping costs. Now that its actually happening we need to get at least 10 orders in so they will start to produce. Iaw my list we have enough people interested but lets see who actually buys one in the end. I´d say the easiest is, that everyone who is willing to buy a new windshield sends me the full name, address, contact email and the quantity of desired windshield version and I forward it all together to the manufacturer. Lets see if, cause its some kind of group-buy, they add another discount... Have a nice weekend 🙂
  2. UPDATE: At the moment there is no supplier for blue tinted glass in the right thicknesses in Europe. The manufacturer is looking into other markets to still produce it. For the Windshield they are gathering data for the necessary test to obtain the DOT and E approval. I ask for a Kit in clear glass as well, so lets see. These are the ones they start to produce now as lightweight version: Audi VW BMW Porsche Mazda Opel A4 B6 Golf 1 - 4 E30 / E30M 997 MX 5 NA Speedster S2 Coupé E36 E46 Atm in pre stage: Audi VW Nissan BMW A3 8L Golf 6 R 32 F 80 TT 8S Golf 7 R 33 F 90 A4 B6 / B7 R 34 R 35 I hope there will be a column Datsun, soon....
  3. As far as I´m aware of its the glass itself. Exactly, thats why door glass and rear hatch have it as well. And thats also why its hard to get your hands on the raw glass for manufacturing our windows...
  4. Ah ok. Yeah as long as we´re at least 10 people they gonna do a mold and start producing it. Then the options would be no heating or horizontal heating... vertical heating is possible but would require another tool been made, so here is the demand probably to low. Regarding tinting... atm they are trying to get a glass supplier for that blue glass. If they´re able to find the right thicknesses they will produce oem looking blue tint glass. If not we have to see what options we have. I should know more about that next week. And then they will provide a more detailed price too, as the one mentioned are only rough calculations.
  5. What do you mean by rear screens? Never heard that wording S30 related 🙄
  6. Hey guys, you might have seen my posts in the various facebook groups over the last couple of days, but finally I´ll post here too, after I gathered most infos about the commonly asked questions. I’ve a glass manufacturer on hand who will produce new glass for our S30 Z’s (2 seater) It will be thinner and therefore also lighter but still obtain all safety regulations including the E sign and also the DOT number. So fully street legal in Europe and the US including all necessary testing that goes with it. Some might think thinner means a weaker windshield and also a higher risk of damage due to stone chips or what not. I ask for a statement from the manufacturer which at least to me makes sense.... so due to the fact that it’s thinner it’s also more flexible and absorbs the impact better. As our cars are not relying on structure integrity of the windscreen, it also doesn’t change any rigidity of the car. Thicker and therefor harder glass is also more brittle. The windshield for example will be approximately 5kg lighter due to the reduction from 6,76mm to 3,96mm. We’re still looking into how to seal everything but it probably has to be glued into the window seal. Then we would still be able to use the standard gasket. But that’s also the case iaw the Nissan FSM, at least for the 280z. I’m looking for people who are also interested in new door glass and rear hatch glass as they have to build a new form for it. We need in total 10 pieces made to justify the cost for a form. The sides will be 3,15mm instead of stock 3,85mm. Same for the rear hatch window. Horizontal Heating will be possible in the aft one but can also ordered without heating. Vertical heating is still questionable due to low demand, probably. (another tool has to be made for "printing" it on the glass.) Prices are without TAX but including shipping in germany, for exact shipping quote send me your address via pm and I forward it to the manufacturer. Windshield: 390€ with 2x 1,6mm glass 240€ with 2x 2,1mm glass Still waiting on raw material for these ones... sadly...: Door and hatch glass: With 10 orders: 500-600€ a piece. With 20 orders 350€-450€ due to the tooling costs. These prices are very rough calculated as the manufacturer is still waiting for answers from their supplier regarding the blue tinted glass (like OEM) in the right thicknesses. So I hope they will go down by a lot. Should know more in that regard beginning of next week. Maybe it has to be clear, let’s see... Iaw the parts catalog at least windscreen and rear hatch glass are the same across 240/260/280z. Door windows have differences in the MJ, for now they would use a 78" 280z for the forms, I hope they´re able to use them for 240/260Z too, as the general form should be the same for the door glass, just the holes and the part which mates to the metallic window mechanism has another cutout... but lets see. Shipping and selling will be done through the manufacturer and is possible worldwide. Please comment for general interest. I´m only trying to get it going with the manufacturer. Let’s see if they actually start to produce it. Bigger group buys will get an additional 10-20% off. Alright, thats it 😄 comments welcome, please discuss the idea 🙂
  7. Alright, so basically get rid of the whole stock ignition system. New coil and 123 dizzy - done. What is it about now with the 1 ohm, because sometimes 1,5 ohm comes up as minimum. As far as I found out the BOSCH RED has 1,2 without the extra resistor. Should be about right than and is probably one of the only parts I can actually get here in germany directly
  8. Alright, the whole wiring loom is on the table anyway. So isn`t a big deal to remove some more. Proper coils like the Bosch RED 0 221 119 030? How do you wire up systems like msd 6al or the crane ones with the 123 - shouldn`t they be similar to the transistor unit already in the car?
  9. Hey Guys, thinking of buying a 123 tune+, too. Is it possible to use it with the stock 280z transistor unit? Im converting to tripples so the injection system is gone. But Id like to keep the rest of the ignition system kinda stock so tach, and all the other integrated systems like the ignition relay etc. are not touched. The whole 1 ohm situation is just because normally you attach the dizzy directly to the coil and to limit the amps drawn, right? So with the stock ignition unit the cables from the coil go in the black box first and than two different cables are going to the dizzy. If I´m measuring over 1 ohm at these two cables (red and green) it should be good to go? Haven`t read about anyone using the 123 tune one a 280z. I´d just like the programmable aspect of the whole setup. Thats how its wired up in the stock form: The coil is between 0,84 and 1,02 ohm iaw the FSM, but as its going in the ignition box first the ohms between the red and the green cable should be the one over 1 ohm and the coil shouldn`t matter. Or what are your impressions on that? (Will measure everything on the weekend).
  10. Still available - 100€, thats not too bad
  11. Thanks I'll call my local nissan dealer next week, lets see. Than at least the gauge is working - the lamp is not sooo important. As the sender is mounted in the top of the fuel tank in a 78 280z its easy to mess around with it on a later state anyway
  12. Fuel too expensive over here I'm always driving on fumes Haha, but my resistor is also damaged - I was hoping to fix at least one type of fuel "measuring" device. Still have to disassemble it, I guess a bit of bending and re soldering will fix the resistor of the float.
  13. I´ve the exact same problem and as I´m in germany too I've no chance to get it rebuild. Do you`ve and update and would recommend that 1k ntc DIY thing. Which one you bought exactly?
  14. Its mentioned in the datsun competition catalog right next to the MK63 upgrade. But I couldn`t find any supplier for them...
  15. Yeah but than its the heavier version? IDK. Send a couple of Fidanza sellers an email, see what they are offering. As most of the aftermarket flywheels are also taking the 2+2 clutch, could just go with that kit: http://shop.exedyusa.com/exedy-racing-clutch/exedy-racing-stage-1-organic-clutch-kit/06801a/i-34386.aspx instead of this one: http://shop.exedyusa.com/exedy-racing-clutch/exedy-racing-stage-1-organic-clutch-kit/06805a/i-34392.aspx Even stronger and should fit with stock sleeve etc. Or does that effect the pedal feel much? 240mm just heavier again... mhh
