Re: Old Datsun Paint Codes whoooooahh back to the 70's

Awesome!

This post should probably be stickied and put under tech articles rather than tech & DIY - admin?

FS: 280ZX S130 Front Struts (suit making 1600 coilovers) $250 Palm Nth

Hard to find. S130 Datsun 280zx front struts, complete. Same stub axle angle as Datsun 510 / 1600 and is a popular upgrade for converting to coil overs because they have bigger brakes, larger stub axle and shorter strut housing than factory. Selling as no longer have a use for them. Can also be used...

Re: DJZ's 280ZX

What gearbox are you running? Did you need to massage / cut trans tunnel at all?

Re: S30 260z resto mod

Nice car! Have you checked with a certifier regarding that techno toy kit? As far as I have been told, you cannot weld to steering knuckle / stub axle at all in NZ. TTT front struts have welded in brackets to steering knuckles which are not certifiable here. You can see it between strut housing and ...

Re: Datsun Nationals Ohakune 2017, Saturday & Sunday October 21-22

Re: Trademe/Yahoo Japan Auctions

Yep it's mine, surprised it didn't sell. Last one in ugly brown sold for over 19k. I just get fed up with people who are not actually going to buy and troll people's listings. Now I'm going to get the work done for wof and relist so will come with new wof. If you are seriously considering buying the...

Re: Registered Datsuns

That list just highlights how hopeless data entry was/is in NZ. No wonder car theft and plates/tagging cars is so common. Purely looking at 510 / Datsun 1600 from 1969 of which there are 36, there are at least 25% with real stuff ups. Some have the same chassis number, 4 of them have purely "P510" f...
