    Nissan Datsun 240z 260z 280z OEM headlight covers. Don't often see these for sale.... Used, read and look at the photos. These are my spare pair. Overall condition is very good considering their age and use. But not perfect. They are a mixed pair, see further on. I am going to be picky here so you are fully aware, but I would certainly use if I didn't have a pair on my S30 (one of which was new- so who wouldn't use that on their Z). The right metal trim is stainless steel, whilst the left is chromed steel. Can't tell unless you put a magnet on. The chrome on the steel one is very good, no rust showing, but the chrome is thin, you can see the brush marks below. Otherwise, in excellent condition. As it is a mixed pair, the Perspex on the left is a little awkward to get to fit, a little tight but not under tension, but does fit. The fixing holes don't quite line up fully, but there is enough room for a fixing screw to go through. Both Perspex covers are good, it has a few light swirl scratches (due to cleaning), BUT nothing to be concerned about. There is a little damage around a couple of the fixing holes, due to previous owners tightening down to hard. Most is hidden under the trim. See photos. No fixing kit with these, I would use something like rivnuts. There is an old rubber seal, but I would use as I did, some closed cell foam to stick around the Perspex to seal it to the body. Yes, there is evidence of old adhesive on the Perspex from the original glue/seal, but its very minor. (and you are going to cover it with a new seal....) I had these advertised on Ebay.co.uk, but didn't quite reach reserve, so trying further afield. I will consider offers if they aren't insulting. Shipping to USA, tracked and signed for with more towards the value at about $48. Drop me a line...

  3. For the CSP311 project, I have a reproduction chassis/VIN tag, and I am looking for the number stamps/punch to put the chassis number back on (the same as on a S30). Yes, any stamp may well do, but I am trying to keep the car very much period/correct, so looking for the correct size and font Nissan would have used back in the day. (Plus I am getting very much OCD about the project!) I have had a search here, I can't see anything (though it doesn't mean there isn't) and the 311s.org forum says the Habour Freight stamp is close, but not on the 4, 7 and 3, which doesn't help. Any direct
  4. And since we are drifting interestingly to reproduction footrests for the S30, here is an aftermarket one that came from a S30 in Japan (according to the Yahoo auction). No idea who made it, but it's nice. A slight chance its the OEM option footrest for the SP/SR311....?
  5. And the Colin project is available here too; https://jdm-car-parts.com/collections/interior-trim-nissan-datsun-fairlady-z-240z-260z-280z-280zx/products/original-style-foot-rest-for-jdm-fairlady-z-and-roadster-sp-sr?variant=2606391364 I am not a fan, the feet and fixing rivets are wrong. I know its to swap feet around to help sort which way the feet maybe orientated to suit your car (but for me its lazy). And considering the cost of an OEM restored one (which I sometimes restore and sell), at least it is original and looks correct.

It was rusty, and flaky paint, and the feet were seized. Stripped and filed/sanded and powder coated in gloss black.

Feet un-seized, but a little stiff, need some movement. Original fixing coach head bolts left in place as they were fine and original rivets. If you are unfamiliar with the footrest, info can be found here; https://www.classiczcars.com/forums/topic/63606-jdmoption-footrest-differences/ Price a little higher than the last one I sold, as getting a little more expensive to get hold of. $220 plus shipping from UK, which at a quick look is about $37 tracked. Drop me a line if interested or want to know more....

  8. My site, some pics of parts before and after plating on this blog page about 2/3rd down (though there are few elsewhere scattered in the blog pages...) https://csp311.net/blog/page-6-ページ6/ For me, I am also looking for a consistency of prep and finish so everything looks the same. Part of the reason I haven't bothered with home kits. Even NOS parts are going back in to be re-plated, as they have faded over time. I'm turning out to be a little OCD, but as much as possible the sharp edges are all chamfered, as this is where the plating process will cover the least. (imagine the a
  9. I have my parts and the majority of my hardware aqua blasted (vapour blasted) first. Nuts/bolts etc are wired up into a ball so the blaster can pick them up with his protective glove. Single bolts/nuts he won't deal with, as they can't be held easily. Uses a rust inhibitor, so they don't rust straight away. Aqua blasting much less agressive and doesn't remove any metal. Then sent to be plated. That is how I do it.

  12. Carrying on with the making parts for the footrest, and relevent, I needed to make some rivets for my SR/SP replica footrest, you see in the first post. I am using a S30 footrest as the donor here. The original rivets (either type) can't be removed without destroying them, (see ealier post). I wanted them to look original as much as I can.... With the original set up, the rivet holds position on the hoop, and the pivot point is on the foot. I decided to use a M8 coach bolt with a square shoulder, just like JDMjunkies above is using and turn it down. The hole size on the hoop is 6mm, so I
  13. Correct. Also, as in first post, UK, Europe/rest of the world didn't get the 280Z, its just a North American thing. The North American market had the 260z (RS30) for 1 (?) year, whilst other markets carried on the the 260Z (e.g. Aust/NZ /even Japan before Nissan recalled all the 260Z they sold). UK (and probably Europe- not sure) 280zx (s130) was R180 for autos, R200 for manual 'boxes. Also, the Japanese market had the S31 for the last couple (?) of years, more than likely 'boxes and diffs were the same (would have to look at fiche to confirm)
  14. I presume you realize the spanners are imperial (inch) in size, not the metric for the S30, so won't fit?
  15. View Advert S30 Calendar clock or called 1 knob rally clock This is known as a calendar clock, or sometimes known as a 1 knob rally clock. No, it doesn't come with an ossillator, the 2 knob rally clock does. For me, its a calendar clock. As you see, the face is different than the stock clock, has a orange second hand and its got the date next to the 3. These were standard on some of the JDM market models, and an option in other markets. I think this is part number 27390-N4500. There is a NOS, in the box one on a vendors webiste for $1100.
