  1. The finish doesn't concern me. The shape, mounting style and especially the turn signal functionality are what interest me. Upon further research, they look like a Spa Technique mirror that maybe someone altered for the turn signal.
  2. Does anyone know if the mirrors on the Rocky Auto RB30 are custom or available from some retailer online? I can't seem to find any information on these.
  3. I've searched but have been unable to find an absolute answer. Does anyone know if the 16x8 Type R rims will clear the T3 big brake kits? Are spacers needed? I contacted Techno Toy Tuning and a Watanabe importer and they think (but are not sure) a 15MM spacer might work. Is anyone running the full T3 coilover and big brake combo front and rear with 16" Watanabes?
  4. I've been wondering about this kit too since it's been sitting in my hatch for over a year now. I could not figure out how to get the solenoid to work with the latch.
  5. I figure a major cost of having an engine built for you is the labor. If that's true...what are the chances that someone with a small amount of mechanical knowledge combined with the "rebuilding your Datsun Engine" book and the amassed wealth of knowledge here at HybridZ can assemble an engine on their own. I had originally posted in this thread that I would gladly supply food and beer for assistance in this endeavor. When that failed, I thought I might try this route. Really, how hard is it to put a motor together. I figure I'll have my head professionally done and assembled, buy carbs
  6. Thanks for all the input. The big difference betwen most of you and me is that I do not have the space or experience to build my own engine. I could certainly source all the parts needed to put together a nice engine for les than $2,500. Unfortunately i live in an apartment in LA. There's no garage, no engine stand, no wall of tools. I have to pay for labor on this project and while I realize that you get what you pay for, I'd like to get as much as I can for what my project budget will allow. When I was at the MSA show I spoke with a gentleman from Vincent Foreign car in Covina.
  7. The thing is...I don't want to have $12K-$15K into a car that will never be worth more than $8K. Between the purchase price, the body work, and basic suspension and brake upgrades I'll have roughly $6K in the car and II still need a amotor and an interior. I figured $5-6K on a motor and $1.5K for the interior and she should be fine. Maybe I should just have a local builder rebuild an L28 and put some Ztherapy carbs and a good exhaust on it and call it a day. BTW...you wouldn't happen to be the D. Hale of Marina Autocross fame?
  8. I'm looking for a new motor for my 20Z. I've spoken with Rebello and would love a 3.1L from them but I don't really want to spend $7K+ on a new motor. Are there any other reputable engine builders out there than can do this for under $6K? Should I just walk around the MSA show with a sign that says "Stroker needed"?
  9. I was quoted $130 for Cibie Housings and $50 for bulbs from Clearcorners.com.
  10. The Z car edition of Automobiles is on the History chanel in 15 minutes.
  11. If only that was for an L6, then I'd be able to asseble my own engine. Nice find.
  12. All us L6 guys really need is a proper compressor and bracket. Everything else should be off the shelf generic parts. I'd love to put a Gen II Mini on my car but I'm stuck without a proper compressor and mounting bracket.
  13. I was hoping to hear something like that. I'm trying to find a set of triples and they've got what I need.
  14. Has anybody had dealings with Wolf Creek Racing? Are they a reputable company? Any input would be great.
  15. If you decide to piece it out...I'll take the head.
