  1. Sorry. Colour match off petrol filler lid (inside).
  2. Yes. Although the factory colour internally has a more brown tinge and i didnt like the shade. The pearl lightens it to what you see. Colour match at the panel shop so no colour code numbers.
  3. Yes. 303. Mine has a bit of pearl added.

    240z horns... Repair/overhaul

    Similar make of horns on the 260Z but they use a centre bolt with right angle bracket mount. Our 2000 Sports has horns with this style of mount. I fitted the old horns replated just for originality, but fitted Denso horns for tone. With the age and plating of the the rusty diapraghm they just never had the right tone again, sounding a bit flat inspite of the tuning, If you get some old horns you can swap the diapraghms around to play with the tone. There is also a high and low tone in the pair. Denso horns- smaller physical size but work great. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/CAR-JDM-HORN-DENSO-HORNS-12V-2-PIECES-RIGHT-AND-LEFT-UNIVERSAL-Tone-111-db/222993597649?epid=13010486078&hash=item33eb7444d1:g:r00AAOSwTbVbCZHw
  5. Just so you are aware this  dashboard emblem does not have rear pins like the original it will require either a type of double sided tape or epoxy type glue, so see how it fits first. I notice you are local I can either send by post or you can pick it up at Shannons West End in Reception, cash on pick up, what ever suits, when you let me know I will provide bank account details if that suits you better. If unhappy with badge happy to refund you and the return the badge in same condition as supplied, let me know Lynton

      I'll make the journey to the General meeting at Shannons tomorrow night if you are going? Can pay you there. I'm not sure if the meeting host would be able to get the badge from the front desk? Otherwise I'll have to get there before they close up. 
      OK with gluing it on but thanks for telling me.

    Reassembly help- wiring bracket

    Positively ID'd as not being Zed. It's a micro switch bracket from a VK Commodore and similar to a bracket used on a Rochester carburettor. Mixed up with carburettor plating. Thks everyone for your help.

    Reassembly help- wiring bracket

    Its very small and light and i should have put something next to it for scale. Can only hold light wires or a small pull cable. So no go on the gearbox. Thks.

    260Z Heater on off control with A/C

    I'd advise pressure testing it before you put it back. Mine leaked on the flat top seal first time with a new shaft oring. I replaced the top seal with an Oring and it sealed and operated. I used a bike tube clamped on the inlet outlet to pressure test. Low pressure only required.

    Reassembly help- wiring bracket

    I'm thinking it is someone elses plating as i dont remember removing it. Looks like it is for a pull cable or wiring as it is quiet lightweight. Anyhow it doesnt appear to be something critical i've forgotten to pur back.
  11. All Can anyone help me with identification and location of the attached bracket? Many photos lost on a phone changeover. Thks

    260Z Heater on off control with A/C

    Is it possible to get seal kits for the heater control valve? Has anyone found an alternative valve that can be adapted to fit?
