  1. They look like OZ Fittipaldi knock offs, possibly by American Racing? I had a set in white about 20 years ago that looks very close to that.
  2. This weekend Capt_Furious and I installed NA Miata seats into his early 260z. I know there are other Miata seat posts in this thread, but hey, why not add more of the same Picked up a pair of NA Miata seats with rails for $100. No major tears - just some usual wear on the driver's side bolster, but no holes or major tears. These have speakers in the headrests, so the wires were cut hanging out of the back. They were dirty and got a decent cleaning from a wet-vac (I needed to rug-doctor the carpets at home, so... this worked out). Miata seats rails. The spacing between stock Z rails and stock Miata rails is about 3/4" difference. The guide pins and mount tabs are riveted in, so they had to be drilled out and they pop right off. The mount tabs on the other side were cut off. We used the guide pin hole as the reference point and drilled new holes in the back of each rail. M8x1.25 45mm long bolts were welded in so they wouldn't spin. These were regular hex head bolts and cleared internal rail guts just fine. When we removed the driver's side seat, we found that the mount tabs were cracked/torn. The rear mount plate fully separated at the spot weld and had a huge crack, so I welded in 1/8" plates to fix this. Ugly but functional. Drilled new holes off a cardboard template I made and the seats went in like butter. The seat height is taller than stock and the headrests are lower than Z head rests, despite the seats looking to be of the same height.
  3. William's Autobody does really good work and is expesnive, but their wait list is 1.5-2 years last time I checked and a full repaint/restore starts at 15k.
  4. Maybe this will work? https://www.sikky.com/product/sikky-low-profile-t56-reverse-lamp-sensor/
  5. I am not affiliated with any of these, just thought I would mention where I saw deals pop up: Techno Toy Tuning is running 20% off with coupon code BLACKFRIDAY Silvermine motors dropped prices on some of their parts; notably power steering conversion is at $700 right now vs. $900 regular price www.apexengineered.com is also running 5-10% discount on their parts
  6. Vintage Air doesn't want you to use fresh air to prevent contamination and corrosion. That being said, you can cut a hole in the vent housing and plumb it for fresh air. Of course this action is not supported by VA
  7. you've got a PM for the steering wheel, emblems, abs coupler. Thanks!
  8. These are supposed to be high quality ZG flares: https://www.rhdjapan.com/marugen-shoukai-zg-type-deluxe-over-fenders-s30-s31.html
  9. That looks great. Those are some really wide 225s to sit like that on an 8" wheel. On a separate note: what muffler is that? I want to do a 2-in 2-out with an X pipe in that configuration
  10. yeah, those are old pictures from 2003. Very few still make 225/50/15 tires. https://www.tirerack.com/tires/TireSearchResults.jsp?zip-code=&width=225/&ratio=50&diameter=15&rearWidth=255/&rearRatio=40&rearDiameter=17
  11. You need sway bars? I am in the bay and i have sway bars. Just gotta check my inventory, what are you looking for?
  12. 2 Harbor Freight engine stands at $37 each and some steel from a scrap yard. Total investment (not counting wheels/casters) was probably $100-120 http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/124889-finished-building-a-rotisserie-today/
  13. I used the LS3 C6 corvette oil pan/windage tray/pickup tube. Here's the comparison between C6 and F-body oil pans: Fbody oilpan hangs about 3/4" to 1" below the front cross member. C6 alleviates that issue, but if you need to drop the oil pan, the engine needs to be lifted to clear the crossmember for oil pan removal.
