blue leaf I don't think they are meant to be copies of watanabe wheels but rather the original magnisium minilites, I think they might have been English from memory. Anyhow I think they are a big improvement on alot of the dodgy after market 1970's 14" dealer optioned wheels you see on the Z's. I think this is a good wheel for those that want to stay with a period look and not blow mega dollars but of coarse each to their own!
Yeah I know that they arent really a copy, I am just saying that they look like an attempt on one - although those kind of wheel look was the standard in the late 60s early 70s all over the world... but watanabe just looks sooo much better....

so this leaves me trying to contact the guy, whos left a notice on the building saying for any enqires on a number, which is the number i had for him, which is turned off...the building is for lease so i have called the real estate agent, hopefully this guy owned the building, and he was doing a bit of modifications to it when i was there ordering the wheels, like putting down floor boards, which i assume u couldn't really do if u were leasing?
i called roh and have been told to call them back in a bit, but that when they couldnt get onto the guy they cancelled the order, i'm hoping they can help me out a bit possibly on another set. but basically i shouldnt have put down such a large deposit i guess, as now i need to try to chase that down :oops:
the guy a month ago told me that they would of started making them, which roh say did happen, but ? as you can imagine i am rather annoyed as i've already waited quite some time...probably should of ordered them sooner so they were ready by christmas.
thanks sulio for ur efforts of getting me the same price, hopefully it all works out lol

the guy has moved out of retail and into wholesale or something, but he can't explain why its been so hard for me to get onto him, or y ROH couldnt get onto him either...but then he ordered another set of wheels from them which is how they have his new number. ROH is going to let me know if there are any issues, and i'll be sure to stay in contact with them more this time lol

i called roh today to see if dom had paid them yet, as thats why they cancelled them, and he hasn't, and i told them i was happy to call him although it doesn't make as much sense as them calling them, so they said they'd chase it up, so i assume i'll hear from them if there's an issue, although since he's ordering wheels from ROH for this wholesale company (it makes no sense to me to put another shop in this stupid process of buying wheels, although he said they mainly sell tyres to car yards, which still doesn't make complete sense to me but atleast this place has a shop front in existance lol) so i guess i'll see how things go. when i talked to dom he said he was happy for me to come and get a refund from him as he could understand my annoyance etc, but i'll see how things go

Well they are like ArizonaZcar but they are from JSK see http://www.autobrake....com/datsun.htm Juan was good to deal with. This way I could get all the heavy stuff locally. So that is what I am doing on the fronts. The rears a different - I am working on a hybrid conversion using falcon and commodore parts so it will be a dics with a drum in hat hand brake - once I get it sorted I will post a pic and what I had to do in the brakes section - as I am not in a hurry I am still waiting for the rotors to be re-drilled.
off topic but what brakes are you going with? are you still peicing together the factory bits from various cars or have u decided to just get arizonaZcar brakes? if so what r u diong about a handbrake? with the exchange rate so good i'm more than tempted...
