    72 Original Fog Lights /Switch

    The best I can do is a drawing the correct switch for the 72 is #10. If you have the other I am still interested. Thanks JLP

    More bits and pieces for plating!

    Never enough bits! Jim, you already knew that though!!😁

    More bits and pieces for plating!

    I originally wanted to cadmium plate my parts, but it is very expensive, due to the toxic properties. I was told that it is used almost exclusive on aircraft parts today. Definitely more corrosion resistant than the original zinc plating.

    More bits and pieces for plating!

    Smalls are daisy chained together, with conductive wire, as to not loose any parts during the plating process.

    More bits and pieces for plating!

    Have another batch in the tumbler getting them ready for wire brush. I will sort black, clear and yellow zinc once all parts are ready to go.

    Aviaid Racing Oil Pans

    The original Aviaid pan is sheet metal not cast. I do like the cast pan. I am just a little sentimental to the original racing pan from the 70's.

    Aviaid Racing Oil Pans

    This is not the pan, but close to the original that was on my L24. They have priced me a single pan for $500.00 with core. I do not know if we would get a better price if we have an order of 10 or more. I want to first see if there is interest. The pans finish will be zinc plating. I am going to have one made one way or the other.

    Aviaid Racing Oil Pans

    The 29 car, when I bought it, had a Aviaid Racing 6qt baffled oil pan. It, of course, went with the car when sold. I recently contacted Aviaid to see if they still offered that pan. They do not have any but are willing to make up a batch. They require a downer pan. I have two extra stock pans. Is there any interest in a group buy? Let me know. Thanks

    Slotted mag center caps

    There were basically the screw on and the snap in the cent hole styles on the slotted mags if I remember correctly. Here are a set of screw on type. https://www.ebay.com/itm/4-VINTAGE-U-S-MAG-INDY-4-DOG-EAR-2-1-2-SPACING-WHEEL-RIM-CENTER-CAP-4-LUG-/191666801020

    Datsun 240Z Shim doors

    Plan to possibly take them for plating Wednesday if the company is open. I will let you know when they are plated. JLP

    Datsun 240Z Shim doors

    Yes, I had a 100 or so laser cut. I am waiting to make a zinc plating run to Muncie, then they will be ready.

    Anyone in the LA Area?

    Anyone in the LA Area (4500 block of Worth Street)? I am semi interested in a car in that area and wondered, not for anyone to go out of their way, if someone would be kind enough to inspect a 71 for sale.
