This boss kit will cost me $50 to my door, I am not sure if it is the right type for the 260z...

on the barcode sticker on mine it says nissan up the top and names 240/260/280z, along with other cars which i think all had 6 cylinder L series engines (ie 240k, 280c)

and the big number which on yours appears to say 5005, says 1005 on the one i've got

but hopefully it works! the overall box of yours looks like a newer design judging by the white writing at the very bottom

I've located a brisbane based seller with a boss kit for the S30s, and its got 6 bolts like the steering wheel. Am I correct in assuming it should bolt on nicely?

i think the diameter of the holes are different for different wheel brands, hence why items like the one linked below exist

in the pic of the one you linked to it looks like there are 12 holes, so maybe this is to account for that?

the holes on my nardi boss seem to be spaced with a diameter of 73-74mm, i can find my vernier and my digital calipers battery is flat so thats the best i can do lol

Well while taking some photos of my gauges for speedhut I took some pictures of my new steering wheel and gear knob to give some kind of completion to this thread:

I'm very pleased with the wheel and knob and peoples comments that it looks like its meant to be there.

Sadly the mahogany knob didn't match the wheel as closely as I thought they would, but I hardly notice it.
