  1. Certainly left better than it arrived.
  2. I found this marker recommended on classiczcars thread and ordered 1 for myself to test. So far I've done a tired looking radio facia and a centre console finisher plate for early style console. It's not quite as good as the factory chrome finish, but it's very close and much better than the peeling old original look that most have by now. Plus using this method you don't need to send it off for vacuum chrome plastic plating - which is quite expensive and you risk having it damaged in transit so win win if you ask me. The hobby pen is for painting toy robots. I found it on eBay for $20-$30 delivered which isn't cheap but I suspect will go a long way before it runs out. The only downside is that it shows up all the imperfections in the original plastic survey. So all those little dents accrued over years of wear and tear. But I keep looking at the reflection off the radio bezel chrome and think for the money it's hard to beat. These were just tests, in future I'd paint (with black vinyl paint) the plastics first to give them a fresh black look and then do the inlays second.
  3. Pencil me in, not sure how many Z's I'll bring. Probably 1 if I'm lucky.
  4. I actually like them blacked out, I find the chrome a bit busy and fussy on the 260z tail lamps. Not sure about the white face gauges however, it's a bit 90s for me. Keen to see how the Skillard Grilles look on the bonnet once installed. As I contemplated getting them myself.
  5. Hi Folks, To preemptively remove scammers who are sending PMs without being validated members (0 posts only). I've taken the decision to cull a bunch of members who had 0 posts. I'm sure a few people who signed up and never posted are legitimate, maybe even have sent PMs to some of you to ask questions but not participated in the public boards. That's ok, they will just have to sign up again if they are legit and maybe make an introductory post. But from now on I'll be regularly removing members with 0 posts to try and prevent any more of these scammers from operating here. Let me know if you have any concerns? Thanks, Gavin.
  6. Did you black out the chrome bits? What colour did you paint the tail light finisher panel (the light grey / silver colour)?
  7. I had a couple more people message me about attempted scams via PMs from users with no posts (0 post count). I've since deleted a bunch of users who haven't posted on here before and joined in the last couple of years. Jump bumping this up again in the hope of keeping everyone alert.
  8. Thanks mate, I try record original colour, interior colour, transmission type, compliance date, and any photos that indicate its current condition, or if it still exists or was written off / scrapped. I also record original country it was sold new in (if possible to determine). Since HS30s were sold in multiple countries.

    Brake Calipers

    Did you get the wide version (vented) or the narrow (non vented disc) versions?
  10. @C.A.R. found this marking on the body shell of a car being restored when removing the rear valance panel. I shared it with @HS30-H who commented: So looks like there are more stampings / marks to be found on these cars. Which may tell us more about how they were made.
  11. Previous owner @hazamat in 2015. HS30-01309 (it's a 71, not 70). It's in the registry.
