  1. I'm running the 245/40-15 RS4s, and am fairly pleased with them. Can't vouch for their long-term longevity as I've only had them a few months.

    Wheel fit

    Difficult to say, because every 45 year old car will be slightly different, and you didn't specify what tires you'll be running; but my guess is that you will have some level of interference between the outer wheel/tire and the fenders. If it's not too bad, the fenders can be rolled to reduce interference. With the -15 offset, there probably won't be interference with the spring perch on the strut; but no guarantees. With a few simple tools, you can simulate that size wheel (and tire) and actually take some fairly accurate measurements on your own car, to give you a good idea of what the fitment will be. This is probably one of the most commonly-asked questions; there are a number of threads on this topic. You may have to cull through them to find your exact combination, but chances are it's been already been addressed at least once. Good luck with it.

    How to remove black oil spot from the seat!!??

    Actually, Brakekleen is used very commonly to clean bad stains on the interior. I've personally used it on carpets and door panels many times without any problem. For a seat, you obviously wouldn't blast it so much that it soaks through to the foam....you use it on a rag and blot it, like you would with any cleaning product. Good luck with it.

    Brakekleen works well for those kinds of spills and stains.
  5. Sounds like a 15" or 16" wheel might be the best all-round solution; in either and 8" or 9" width. There's a decent selection of tires in those sizes (more in 16 than 15) for cheaper prices than you'll find for larger diameter wheels. If you're wanting new wheels at budget prices, check out XXR (or even Rota). Otherwise, keep an eye on the used ads for used wheels. Old Toyotas have the same lug size as S30's, so watch the 4AG forums, as well as Datsun forums..
  6. Jon stole the words right out of my mouth....the molded-in headlight covers are really nice. Kudos for bringing an old classic back to life.
  7. Your questions regarding wheel and tire size really need to be prefaced with your intended application. Racing? What style of racing? A setup that works well for auto-x may be terrible on a road course. Off the top of my head, most people will probably steer you to a 16" wheel; but that may or may not be the best setup for your particular needs. And like in all aspects of life, your budget will likely be the biggest constraint, so you'll need to decide how much you plan to spend. Websites like TireRack.com are a good tool for determining what size and quality of tires are available.
  8. I guess the obvious question is do you have 12v and good ground at the bulb socket? If yes, the bulb is probably bad. If no, need to troubleshoot that circuit. If you haven't already done so, removing the heater controls center panel makes it easier to work behind the tach.

    Where this tube belongs?

    See figures AC-61 and AC-64 in the attached. AC.pdf
  10. There's actually a wide range of sizes/widths for "ZG wide flares", depending on the specific manufacturer. Which specific flares are you considering? You will also need to specify tire brand and size that you are considering, as well. That makes a huge difference in fitment. Have you had a chance to review this thread yet?
  11. SOLD. Thread can be deleted, if so desired.
  12. One pair of 1.5" wheel adapter/spacers in very nice condition. Lugs are 4x114.3 spacing with 12x1.25mm threads. Includes 8 lug nuts for installation. $35 shipped anywhere in the U.S. Thanks for looking.

    Tokico Shocks

    Yes, it sounds like that one is definitely gone if it compresses and stays compressed. From what I've seen, Tokicos produced in the last couple of years have been hit or miss quality. Bilsteins are a good affordable alternative if you don't feel like springing for Konis.
