I have just picked up 3 sets of tail light trim bezels. For anyone that appreciates Datsun original chrome parts as much as i do, I have two spare sets of bezels for sale.

Price:

$299.00 per set Mailed Australia wide with your cores sent to me in exchange. (Your cores cannot have cracks)

$399.00 per set Mailed Australia wide with no cores supplied.

I must say they have imperfections, (refer to pictures) and for the cost of the Chrome Plating being done by a shop that specializes in concourse restorations of classic car chrome parts i was expecting factory quality without any imperfections at all.

 

If you are after factory bezels please seek New Old Parts.

 

The reason for such high cost is because I had to buy buckets and chemicals to strip the old chrome and the plating - this took along time and the cost of disposal of chemicals was higher than I expected. No shop accepted the surrounds until the old chrome has been removed.

 

After my preparation the plater acid bathed the bezels and only then the plating process started.

 

In the good old US of A these sell for $750 AUD ($575.00 US) shipped to Australia but you have to ship your cores to them which is  another $60 AUD.

I am not planning to do another set as it is simply not worth it time wise but i want your cores in exchange as they came off my other Z's.

Unfortunately I've found similar, when I've invested in restoring parts in bulk etc.. people don't factor in time it takes them to organise stuff on their own when looking at pricing I'm afraid.

 

But these look great!
