Newbie (1/14)



  1. Are you looking for just the chrome trim bezel or the tail light housing?
  2. Final Update: There is just a few days left to take advantage of this final promotion. If there are any others interested in participating, it is important that you place your order in time to have it shipped by Monday (Halloween). Sorting through old parts is always a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon:) Thanks again for all of your past support and to all of those who have placed orders for this final promotion. Mike
  3. Thanks , Nelsonian. Pm received and reply sent. I continue to have interest in acquiring quality cores that I can re-chrome for myself. For the most part, I am interested in picking up some sets of 260/280z tail light bezels, interior a/c fresh air vents, door escutcheons, and some emblems with full mounting pins intact. I am also always keen on trading my service for extra cores if that floats your boat. Feel free to contact me via messenger or email if you have cores to sell or trade. Mike
  4. After nearly 5 years of serving the Datsun community, Vintage Chrome will be terminating the service by the end of this year. There comes a time in most every entrepreneurial venture when you reach a point in which you have a tough decision to make......"get big or get out". Unfortunately, achieving significant growth at this stage of the venture would simply require a commitment of resources that I am not prepared to make at this stage of my life. So, I have decided that "getting out" is the best course of action for me and my family. I know that there are members of the club that would still like to have some plastic parts chrome plated, so I am announcing a final production run and club member discount. The Promotion will work as follows: 1. Orders will be accepted from today's date, October 15, 2016, through October 31, 2016. 2. Pricing for many of the more common Z and other Datsun parts are listed below, but we also have the capability to chrome plate any rigid plastic piece, even if it was not originally plated by Datsun . If you need this customized service, please email vintagechromellc@gmail.com for a specific quote. 3. The customer must ensure that parts to be chromed are disassembled to the point where only the pieces to be chromed are provided to us. No other preparation is required by the customer. All stripping and prep work will be completed by us. 4. Payment Policy: Payment via PayPal is due at time of order. Domestic (US) shipping and handling charges will be $9.95 per package. 5. INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Prices are the same as quoted here except non-US customers will be responsible for freight costs and applicable customs charges, if any. 6.Shipping Info: Your parts should be be shipped to the following address: M. Robbins - Vintage Chrome 7250 S. Durango Dr., Suite 130-164 Las Vegas, NV 89113 9. Please be sure to include with your packaged parts: Your name Return shipping address Email address Phone number Special instructions (even if previously communicated through PM or email). Examine your cores carefully before sending them to Vintage Chrome. Peeling or discolored chrome is OK, but parts must not be warped, have cracks, gouges or missing pieces in the substrate. We do not repair damaged plastic parts or re-paint parts after plating. Un-platable cores will be returned (if requested) or disposed of. Pricing for many common Z and other Datsun parts are listed below: Item Description 260/280z Tail Light Bezels (pair) $229.95 240/260/280Z Center Vents (each) $39.95 240/260/280z round a/c vents: (pair) $79.95 240/260/280Z Door Escutcheons (pair) $59.95 240Z Series I Hatch Grilles (pair) $59.95 260/280z hood vents (pair) $199.95 Plastic Wheel Center Caps (set of 4) $199.95 240/260/280Z Heater Control Panel (each) $129.95 240/260/280Z Door Pull Strap Finishers (pair) $49.95 240/260/280z emblems Email your needs for custom quote Please contact vintagechromellc@gmail.com for quotes on other parts or anything custom. Pictures of some past jobs will follow.
  5. Plata, Thanks for the brochure pic. Brings back memories of better times and better cars.(IMHO). Unfortunately, I don't see any hood emblems on that line-up. This emblem could possibly be an old grille emblem from the B210 (judging by the pics), but not enough definition or clarity to determine conclusively. As for the other recommendation, I already tried it here (sshhhh.......let's keep that under your hat). May have to try someplace like ratsun. Thanks anyway for the reply. Mike
  6. Hmmmm......seems like nobody else recognizes this emblem either. At least now I don't feel so ignert......ignrant....ig......uh, dumb:)
  7. While this not a "Z" emblem, I am hoping that someone here can help identify which years and models that this emblem was used on. Have searched google, ebay, etc. trying to figure this out, to no avail. Anyone??? Thanks for your help. Mike P.S. the emblem measures approx. 3 inches tall by 1 1/2 inches wide, and has two mounting posts on the rear, leading me to believe that it probably is either a hood emblem, a trunk emblem, or a c-pillar emblem. Any thoughts?
  8. Leon, Thanks for the gratuitous plug:) Am glad you liked the work......looks like you must have put some real elbow grease into your lenses as well. Your car looks great! If you ever run across a decent 260z with an automatic tranny, let me know. (it's for the little lady......she doesnt know how to drive a manual transmission). Anyway, I feel like I've inadvertently hi-jacked Brian's thread.......my apologies to you, Brian, but will keep you posted on the progress of the fiberglass bumper project:) Mike
  9. Lance, Sorry......I missed your second question. Yes, I have pics of past work done and will post them here. (If I can figure out how to do it:)) Mike
  10. Lance (or Tim), A much less restrictive regulatory environment, coupled with lower labor costs, enable me to offer a good quality product at prices that are typically 50-60% off of locally quoted prices. Additionally, there arent many facilities here in the US that will still do custom chrome plating on plastic.......most of the remaining players just do production plating. Finally, many of us Z guys want our cars to look awesome, but we frequently don't want to spend alot of money to make them look good. So, in a nutshell, that is why I began this service ........to make traditional chrome plating more affordable to more people. Yes, I will keep the community updated with the progress with the fiberglass bumper trial run. Mike
  11. For those of you that prefer to go for real chrome plating, I have a service that specializes in electroplating of plastic parts. I've been sending many Z car plastic pieces overseas for replating and have generally had good results with the finished product. This week, for the first time, I am sending a set of fiberglass bumpers to be chrome plated. This is a "test run" for the bumpers to see if I can achieve the same quality results and to ascertain what the costs are to plate an item this large. I will post before and after pics of the bumpers through the process, and will let everyone know whether I'll be offering to plate fiberglass bumpers in the future.. Mike
