  1. i would but like i mentioned they would unfortunately be like $1700. there was just alot of run time and material. I had also started with a flat plate in the rear because i already had other custom tail lights before. if i made new ones to sell, they wouldnt just bolt into the original location. you would also have to start by welding in a flat panel to start with. if all that beeing said and you are still interested ill see what i can do but i dont blame you if you say im crazy for wanting so much $
  2. im a machinist and of coarse the s130 gets no love in the after market for tail lights. So i created my own. I found some cool infinity mirror like tail lights for a tractor trailer and didnt want to just mount them to a flat panel in the rear so i made tail light buckets out of 2in thick alum which i thinned down to 1/8in walls for weight. And made my own clear lenses also. NO 3D PRINTING!!! 3d printing is great but im a machinist so im partial to what i can make. Id love to say i can produce them but i priced them out with the hours i have into them and they would have to be like $1700 whic
  3. That is a damn good question!! Great job alainburon !!! Very clean car! I bet it was a shock for u being a LS car, good to see them understanding that not every Z has to stay original... I hope that nitrous gets used!? 😁
  4. I've seen them go for double that. And I've seen people strip their car to restore it and just destroy the weatherstripping just assuming there was replacements. Then kicking themselves while trying to figure out how to get the car back together...they are pretty complicated pieces...I'm by no means a spokesman for them but I've been there. I just got lucky and was able to salvage mine.
  5. Actually there is some out now in the last year or so. Vintagerubber.com they are $250 a side but I call that worth it
  6. Thank u Newzed. That's a good start for me to look at. That diff owes me nothing so if I had to replace it, I'm good with that but of coarse I'd rather a different alternative. A friend of mine also suggested the same thing.
  7. i have a R200 with 3:54 gears and Quaife internals. Its in a 280zx with a LS (400whp) motor. The diff has been awesome to me for the last 12years, ever since the 1st v8 motor. I had a professional install it originally 12years ago and did nothing but put a 300zxt diff cover on it a few years ago so obviously i changed the fluid then. It has always had a slight whine to it under light throttle when on the highway. if i let off the gas it goes away, if i accelerate more it goes away. It was explained to me that because it is a gear driven unit that it will have that whine. No big deal. Anyw
  8. The only thing I could've done less was the 1st base coat. It maybe took 3 qts.
  9. i think your on the right track. i did my ZX in House of Kolor Kandy Base. look into it, it is very similar to regular candy but more forgiving if you ever have to repaint. im super happy with it, get lots of complements and even won a few best paint trophies. i did black as a base, it gives the color more flop. 2 coats of black, 3 coats of red and 3 coats of clear. a gallon of everything was good for me doing body, door and hatch jams, and engine bay. i didnt do the engine block. i went thru TCPGlobal for everything and was very happy with it all.
  10. i love hearing about all the different solutions s130 owners come up with for different obstacles. Like a dodge omni steering rack!? Mine is doing great, so i dont even want to ask how the apex front crossmember is or how you did the s13 rear sub and etc, etc...i am trying to leave mine alone right now. Cant wait to see some pics though. here is a couple from mine this year. Anyone else want to check in!? received_359124161793853.mp4
  11. i too have the MSA kit but i have the front bumper with fog lights. the side skirts are a pain to hold close to the fender. i fiberglassed a 6mm stud to the back side and drilled a hole in the fender for it. you are able to reach in thru the wheel well to put a nut on it. Skillard.com just came out with a different body kit for it that is nice looking. and there is no great option for widebody kits other than some old 80's design's. there are some wheel flare options though As stated before STAY AWAY from Showcars.com, i had a horrible experience with them. PS: 280zx is different car tha
  12. Hey, would you happen to have a yoke for an r200 diff with all that stuff? 

    1. G-Tech


      are you talking about the splined shaft and flange that the half shafts mount too? i have a set of stock half shafts that have them on there? if your talking about something for the driveshaft end of the r200, i do not have anything  

  13. IM NOT A BIG SELLER OF THINGS, JUST TRYING TO MAKE ROOM ON MY STORAGE SHELF. IF MY PRICING IS A LITTLE HIGH I AM OPEN TO OFFERS. All Pricing DOES NOT include shipping. if your interested, send me your Zip code and i will get you the cost for shipping Stub axle and Companion Flanges are $150 for the set, i will sell just companion flanges for $100 for the set. Or just stub axles for $50 for the set (1 SET LEFT) Custom Made Companion Flanges Adapters (280zx flange with 280zxt CV-joint adapter welded too it) $50 for the set 280zx Universal Joint Hal
  14. Before i ask, i want to point out that i did donate to the site. So i dont want to be taken as someone trying to sell stuff without following proper procedure. Time to get rid of some things i no longer need. Looking for an opinion on what they might be worth. i currently have a couple sets of 280zxt stub axles and companion flanges and even a set of adapter companion flanges that i made (in my machine shop), also i have a few 280zxt CV-joints that i think i need to sell individually cause somehow i ended up with 3 driver sides and 1 pass side. 1 has good rubber boots, the other 3 need ru
