  1. How much interest is there in getting replacement dashes for 240z / Fairlady Z? I have a Fairlady Z RHD car and am currently based in the US and have been looking for a replacement rather than going down the rebuild path. Hong Vu, who is very active in the US Z community, has been producing reproduction Z parts for some time. He recently started developing dash replacements. Vintage dashes have done a LHD 240z (Mk1 & 2), 260z / 280z version as well as 510 and other cars. They are the dashpad only, fitting over your existing frame. I have seen these dashes installed on a few 240z at local meets. They are very good quality and built using more modern material, hence much more likely to last than OEM stock. He has plans to do a RHD 240z version, it is in the mold process. If we can demonstrate interest it will help him gauge demand and move the priority up the list. Please post here if you are interested and email them them to get your name on a wait list 'Vintagedashes@Gmail.com' https://www.instagram.com/vintagedashes/?hl=en
  2. I've heard that there are more restrictions in Vic relative to Qld.
  3. I am going to bring my 1972 Fairlady Z into Au from the US. (It is JDM car with fender mirrors) I have been told I will need to have the vehicle inspected by an engineer and it will need to meet Australian design rules in place at the time of the build. The list included; Rear view mirrors, the RHS mirror has to be adjustable from the drivers seat (electric mirror or on drivers door) – manual mirror on front guard not legal. Anyone running fender mirrors? How did you go getting around this requirement? My fall back is to 3d model and print a version that looks like the originals but incorporates a power mirror motor assembly. (I'm working through the required asbestos testing required prior to shipping and will share my learnings and experience later).

    WTB: Bonnet Latch 240z

    Looking for a bonnet latch mechanism - male part for a RHD 240z. I'd take the whole mechanism if someone is looking to sell complete. An Aussie based in the US but would prefer not to try to convert a LHD version. (JDM Fairlady Z)

    Headlight Bucket Fitment

    i have the same problem, I'm interested in the answer as well. I'm guessing mine has had a front end altercation at some stage.

    Whilst I’m based in the US I have a RHD version car, that’s why I’m reaching out to Aust for the right version.

    WTB: LH Door chrome strip

    Note there is a difference between the 240 and 260z versions. I know this because is sent mine in for refurb (new felt and polish) and my left and right were different. the 240 is full metal at the ends. The 260 has a plastic piece at the rear.
