  1. I have been in the states for the past 5+ years and the customer service on average is atrocious everywhere. People genuinely seem annoyed that they have to deal with you and they generally don't know what they are doing, particularly if anything out of the ordinary happens. I swing between being annoyed and then realizing the minimum wage in some places is half of that in Australia
  2. Just thought I'd do a 2021 update on importing Watanabe's. A lot of threads here direct to Otomoto and another wheel/tire company that are no longer around? I saw a sale direct from RS saving 30-40% off RS Watanabe R Type wheels and that they included lug nuts (see translated screenshot attached) so I got in contact directly with RS Watanabe to see about whether they would ship direct to Australia. The forwarded me to Rasel Rahman at https://buynowjapan.com/ who said the campaign was for domestic customers only who would photograph the wheels on their cars for their gallery. But he quote
  3. The timing of this has me thinking you’re a plant by Apex Engineered Apex Engineered Instagram
  4. I haven't actually purchased either of these, they are just pics taken from Yahoo Auctions Japan. Plenty of the reproduction ones available for 38900 yen which is about 480 aud (plus 10% tax in Japan + shipping)
  5. A bit of a range. There are a couple of NOS ones for around $1500usd that have been online in Japan for a while with no bids. Then a variety of different quality used ones. It could be the angle but looking at them they do seem a touch different. Not really an issue for my purposes as I’m not going for originality but was wondering if the quality is similar or noticeably worse too
  6. What is the consensus on the reproduction fender mirrors vs the originals? I can see a slight difference in the stalk shape. Has anyone held both to compare? Is the quality otherwise ok? The pokemon master in me wants the oem ones, my bank account wants the reproductions. Interested to hear which way you would go
  7. Looks like this one is about to go up on bringatrailer.com over here in the states.

  9. How funny that this thread recently got revived, this was posted on jdm junkies today: https://www.jdmjunkies.ch/wordpress/2021-01-17/240z-the-guide-to-sumitomo-mk63-brakes/

  11. Yes I always thought this about the 350z and 370z! Looks great dropped, looks even more European
  12. Long time no see! I have actually been stalking the forums lately, planning how I am going to finish off my 260z that's been in my dad's shed for the last 15 years. Anyway, tuned in to the reveal last night and I hated it at first. But with a few small tweaks and removing that horrible yellow I think I am starting to fall in love with it. Here is my edit, shaping the grill, round headlight inserts, coloured roof, darkened katana and more traditional door handle
  13. Vacuum Hoses My brake vacuum hoses are really starting to fray and it seems pretty much impossible to source moulded hoses that fit RHD vehicles. I read a post about a guy who used an internal wire to give the hose its shape. I have also been using a plastic braiding called FlexoPet to do the electrical wiring on a arcade game console I was making and figured I could use this on the car too. It doesn't look original but I think it looks pretty tidy. Here was my mockup, the wire I had on hand was too thick (first 2 pictures). I ended up using a coat hanger wire which see
