Hey Simzgi - nice zed you got. seems to be a Series one car (with those extra vents beblow the rear window), also i see now your's is an US-import, because of the US taillights and the USA Bumpers. looks nice, mate! need to meet someday
Back to "work"
1) Im still busy planning and ordering a lot of stuff, so no progress at the car itself. anyway, was looking for a few "rare" parts for the datsun and figured out i alleady have a "sought after" part on my Zed: the genuine "Elephant" oil filler cap:
actually i got that feel it isn't too rare, there are several similar caps for sale on ebay, pretty cheap. anyway, it was a kind of limited item so i'll clean it up and re-use it. specially like the japanese lettering
2) after reading about this http://speedhunters.com/archive/2012/01/19/reader-s-ride-gt-gt-peter-brueckner-s-2000gtx.aspx
Hakosuka on speedhunters i was curious about the watanabe steering wheel. checked the 2009 watanabe catalogue, but no steering wheel for sale. a bit investagation and i found ot it's discontinued, rare as hell, and usually expensive:
I found one for sale, but really expensive.. i'll think about it tonight, but i believe i need this
the other possible steering wheel could be a vintage nismo one. a guy on Yahoo auctions is selling about 15 of these, but sadly all without horn button and all need some new leathering:
They're cool and rare too, but somehow i feel like the look more 80ies than 70ties. fits probably more into an R31 skyline or something boxy..
these would be a fitting horn button:
Also found this cool one, but somehow it doesn't look OEM:
So what do you guys think? what should i go for? rare or ultra-rare?
