Wow, I definitely think thats your car. All the angles just look too damn close. Your car looks really great btw. What gives that blut tint to the headlights that I see in a lot of Hakos? Is that the bulbs? What kind of bulbs do you run?

While I was at a Parts-Off (kind've like Up Garage but smaller), I found 2 sets of headlight housings that accept H-4 bulbs. The lenses are glass, flat, and non-fluted and I'm running H-4 Raybrig bulbs, 50w and 85w respectively, I forgot the exact model of bulb. I was thinking about putting in HID's but they are really expensive for a name brand.

Here's a close up pic:

Damn, I just noticed the inner housing is a little crooked :oops:

Roy I think you should ask them to send you a free hoodie :)

Some local company put a pic of my car on one of their t-shirts and I got a free shirt, so you should get a free hoodie :D (Doesn't hurt to ask, right)

Oh wow, that's pretty cool. I would be stoked if people used pics of my car.

Unless of course your the photographer trying to make a living. Not trying to open a box of worms but I had a friend have his images "stolen" and chopped down to not show his signature then have it used in print magazines. Among the photography community, they take those things serious. It kind of looks like this company is in another country though which is difficult to take any sort of legal action.

It is a cool angle photo of your car and it looks really good as a negative though. Dino is a awesome automotive photographer for Speedhunters.com(among other sites I assume). :D :tu:

definitely yours, you can see the numbers on the plate match! thats cool i may buy one. i had HIDs in my Hako, and it was causing the battery to drain a bit, so i dumped them for 5K H4's blue just like yours. i love them. mine are just the outer lights, the inner ones have a two wire plug as opposed to a three like the H4's, so i would have to replace the wiring for it, and it seems like it would be a royal PITA to do, the previous owner replaced the wiring for the H4's and added relays and all kinds of stuff. (I'm really off topic...) your car looks sick, and the hoody is awesome!

...On a similar note, there's some online auto parts site that I was surprised to recognize myself on a bit back:

http://www.andysautosport.com/datsun/19 ... t_systems/

In case it's a difficult spot:

To be fair, it's the same that was picked for the cover of Nissan Sport Magazine a couple years ago (...with about two-hundred other cars) :lol: Also, I never thought that was a great angle, and the lighting on that picture is awful :? Nearly just want to send them in a better pic, lol.
