  1. It's been a while since I had to drive my '78 in the dark. The stock sealed beam headlights had me squinting the whole way to work. As soon as I got there, I ordered some 9" glass headlight housings with replaceable H4 55/60 watt bulbs. After installation and alignment, they're only a little better. I've upgraded a '95 Tacoma similarly and bought 80/100 watt bulbs for it. It was a great improvement. Can the 280 wiring handle 80/100 watt H4 bulbs?
  2. I've been working on getting the electrical side of my '78 280z back to working and have run into a few issues. First off, my low beams do not work and I have confirmed its a grounding issue somewhere between the headlight plug and the switch by grounding it manually which makes them work. This also makes the high and low beams run at the same time which is not good. Second, while I was installing an upgraded wiper motor to replace my broken original one I had the motor working for a few minutes before lengthening the wires for permanent install then it stopped working completely even rewired
  3. I'll try to give you a little history and my problem. Had the car since 2000 ,put an LS1 /T56 in it plus other mods one being the headlight relay up grade . So I drove the car and wore the motor and decided to redo the whole car . So the car is all fresh now paint ,wheels ,motor , tranny , ect . So my old dash harness was pretty much cut up and I got a clean one from Ebay. So I used my old headlight harness and just spliced into the new one. But now no headlights,parking lights, and the two headlight fusses seem to be grounded . I can't figure out how to fix it . Any help would be greatly ap
  4. There are a number of 7" LED headlights available from GE and others. They are expensive, around $250 each. With other LED replacements around the house and shop, the LEDs use much less power, operate much cooler, and produce comparable light. They would seem to be perfect for improving the lighting on my '72. Has anyone used the LED sealed beams?
  5. Hi, I'm new to this forum and this is my first post. My car is a 1976 280Z 2+2. I have removed the dashboard of my car to work on the hoses in the AC system and re-upholster the top foam. After re-installing the dashboard I have 2 problems: Headlights won't turn on. All other lights do. The brake light in the Speedometer is on and the brakes are way too low. I have reviewed the switches and the fusible links and they are all Ok. Any ideas on what could be wrong? Thanks,
  6. I found this on motortrend yesterday. Aside from the bar across the center of the headlamps these look like they could be a good upgrade over our standard lighting. However, they are quite pricey. Bright Eyes for your Retro Ride?Peterson 701C LED replacement lamps. - Motor Trend Blog
  7. My headlamps will not turn on as well as the gauge/instrument lights. Checked the fuses and all but the 2 Headlight fuses get power. The fuses appear to be great. I checked fusable links and stuff. I dont have a ohmeter or anything just a check light to probe stuff with:bulb: I also checked most of the connections and they appear to be good as well. So what could be the problem? my model is a 77 280z and I have a FSM but its hard to trace through the car for stuff when you just bought it
