  1. I've seen very similar looking wheels on older Ferraris and Fiats of the same period. So it was definitely part of the style of that era. Look up Cromodora wheels. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/ferrari-dino-cromodora-wheels-14x6-1-2/
  2. Yeah "Cha Bu Duo" basically. 😄 I once bought a Guitar second hand off a so-called collector... It appeared genuine in every sense of the word. I still have the photos of it. https://photos.app.goo.gl/6ZSeZFcdnZPfjh7M7 Notice how it has a serial number, Epiphone Branding, and it even came with a little Epiphone Brochure. For all intents and purposes it looks the same, certainly in photos it still looks impressive. I was naive and it was my first electric guitar (still a learner at the time and still am really), but not knowing much about setting up the action or how good pi
  3. Happy to add my 2 cents, especially since I've been asked to join in. I read this thread last night and was trying to make sense of it. @Sean Dezart - You messaged me about posting these wheels on my own forum (www.viczcar.com). But before I gave you the go ahead, I wanted to know more about these wheels and the product before giving you the go ahead for several reasons. I recall seeing someone in Eastern Europe offering the M-speed style wheels for literally half the price of what M-speed were charging elsewhere. Naturally this seemed too good to be true. Subsequently there
  4. That looks fantastic to me. Are you thinking of offering them for sale? Given the amount of antenna motors I see on eBay missing the antenna itself (broken) I'd say being able to offer a repair option with the cool looking arrow tip (my opinion) could be a winner?
  5. I managed to get the mast out using this penetrating liquid. But I cannot extend all parts of the mast. I can extend a few but not all.. I tried putting more liquid wrench into the mast itself and left it a few days but still didn't work. I also couldn't remove the mast tube from the body either.. I've tried a propane torch to heat it and penetrating fluid but so far no joy... any other ideas? I also got thinking about potential mast replacements.. for the arrow tip... A few are on eBay for $16. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Power-Antenna-AM-FM-Radio-Repla
  6. Hi Folks, 1 thing I'll note is that we often refer to these Antenna's as Harada made, but I bought 1 from Yahoo! Japan a while ago that I suspect is a Clarion unit. I've attached photos of 1 on there now. I mention it because it's got the "arrow" tip antenna that we often say is an early S30Z thing, but I suspect the arrow tip antenna's came on later S30Z's in Japan also. As they seem a lot more plentiful there. https://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/x673873132?conversionType=browsing_history I don't know if this makes any difference what so ever in terms of the rebuild process or
  7. Hey Kats, thanks for the laugh, I'm glad you like that song. Filmed in my home town of Melbourne streets too! Of course the local school yard variant was "It's a long way to the shops if you want a sausage roll". Which was the quintessential lunch time snack. How about going to a local aquarium for filter tube? https://www.ebay.com.au/i/122870227473 My old hose is very brittle, kind of like the windscreen washer jet tubes! So I'd be looking at something like this, for a transparent tube. Ok, so I have a question. I'm half way through tearing mine apart.
  8. It's definitely a TM-1081ZB(S) radio. Out of early 240z. Let me know if you have any RF Chokes / Fuse Assemblies you can part with?
  9. Thank you Zup. That looks like the right globe. I'll double check the measurements. Any ideas on the RF choke and spring?
  10. RE: #3 the globe. Attached is a photo of it, you can see I broke it when I accidentally dropped it on a tile floor. It looks similar to the BA9's in the Gauge Clusters but the bayonet is a bit different? Perhaps that doesn't matter? Anyone know if you can get green LEDs to replace it or another suitable alternative?
  11. I'm not sure I see the merit in restoring to include the defective diff position myself. Although I understand wanting to be "original". But for me it's like keeping the oiler bar when they later had the internally oiled cam design which was better and for the most part both won't be seen once installed.. In terms of hard to find parts. Ashtray's (early ones) because they were made of bakerlite plastic and so no reproduction exists. 1 drop and they shatter into a bajillion bits. I also think the original sound deadening material cut to appropriate shapes would be great. (I think
  12. I would probably just replace them also, depends how much you need to skim off them and what the minimum thickness is after that. Deep pitting will be a problem.. Half the issue here will be that undoing a lot of badly rusted stuff can be frustrating and take hours.. If the calipers have seized pistons etc.. it might be easier to start with better ones, but the main suspension components will come up good after a blast and powdercoat.
  13. I think the libre's/libra's on there look 100x better than the rota's. Just lower the ride height a bit more..
  14. @Kats I'm not 100% sure the A vs B model designation only applies to the colour of the globe, but so far that's what I've observed. The A seems to be fitted to earlier car. Nearly every radio I've found from an Australian delivered car has a Green led. The only red 1 I have was from eBay and out of an early North American market HLS30. To update my progress here: I just finished restoring a radio or re-plating the hardware that arrived battered and bruised. Video of it working here. https://photos.app.goo.gl/VonPvkZ95MR1McA46 My question for Greg or anyone else here, i
