240z mirror

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Finally got round to digging zed (71 240 Z ) out of shed and trying to give it some attention.  Noticed that someone had clean hit my driver side mirror. 

Does anyone have the Nissan part number?  (Or microfiche so I can look it up) 

I suspect Nissan don’t have and I will need to source from Japan but thought it worth a try....

An plan B if unobtainium would be to find someone who can repair.  What has happened is the join between the ball (that links to stem) on the mirror and the body of the mirror has split.

Quite thin metal so beyond my ability to repair. 

Thoughts?

I believe reproductions were made available not long ago. There is a thread here somewhere.

Thanks all.

Will email the supplier.

Assume all were happy with mirrors (and remain so)?  Seemed to be the case from the thread. 

Kind regards

Hey Huw,

Well mine is actually still in the box! But seems decent enough quality, although I do not have an original one to compare it to. 
I never really got much feedback from others, other than they aren't tacky like some repros.

Mirror arrived.  Have yet to mount.

Compared against an OEM mirror bought for my father's zed at same time there is one clear difference.  The quality of the framing around the glass finish.   

Essentially, the OEM unit's glass is beveled to and the metal slightly folded in on the inner face (glass side).  The aftermarket is flush cut and thus a bit sharp and not as quite a high quality finish. 

Pondering removing glass, getting someone to bevel and fold over the metal to get the finish right.
