hawt! :shock: :D

ahh, inspirational. If only I had a bit more cash - I'd get my set of RS-8s cleaned up, painted and fitted to the coupe. SSRs are all good, but the gold centres are really starting to get their peel on now :(

also, Nick - I'm gonna have to bring the coupe down your way sometime. Long overdue for a visit.

I think im going to polish back to the metal around the wiritng like it was before, looks abit plain all gold.



You can take the paint off with a dremel or a drill with the right bit. or if u have access too a mill it would be even easier.

thanks..

Im not sure of the exact sizing they were on the car when I bought it... Monday or Tuesday I should have some time to dust off the cobwebs and have a look I remember the sizes being on stickers on the inside of the rim.


there are some sizes here, with some pics of different rides;

Beautiful car you got there, buddy. The US never gets the good stuff and it's way too hard and expensive to bring those sexy bitches over (especially in the east coast) :x .

I finaly had some free time last weekend and thought I should repaint my windscreen wipers and the strip across my windscreen, they were looking quite weathered, only problem the front ones were a pain to remove with the bonnet on the car (even with nuts removed).

So when all else fails

They came up well, Just need to take some after photos :P


...

On another note, Im about to to do an oil change, which oil filter was the same as the FJ20, was it the 280z?

I want to get an oil filter localy from Repco before I try ordering an FJ20 one in from SWM in Sydney.

Try the Z170 for an oil filter, I can't remember were I read it but I have it written down in my notes. I think it takes the same oil filter as the L20B. The Nissan part # is 15208-W1103AU

Will take some pics in the next day or 2 :tu:

Ended up using a Z117 Ryco oil filter as thats what I ended up pulling out of the car, I thought if it aint broke dont fix it :tu: Was a pain in the arse to get to damn it sucks having a low car :o


...

Has anyone cured the problem with the DR30 dashlights?? Before I would just have to switch the lights on/off the dash lights would just come back on, or if it hit a bump in the road... but now they arent coming back on at all.
