    Hello from North Carolina

    Welcome to the forum and congrats on your recent acquisition...looks like a very nice clean original! If you plan on doing any auto-x or HPDE, the Tarheels club is a great group of folks and is very active in your area: https://www.thscc.com/.
  2. Nice set of inner stub axles (properly known as side flanges) for the R160. These are 25 spline, bolt-in style. Threads, splines, seals and shafts all look in good condition. These can also be modified to be compatible with a Subaru LSD R160. $100 shipped anywhere in the U.S. Thanks for looking.

    Protecting inside of frame rails

    This is a pretty good product for rust protection anywhere internal....comes with a 2' hose to get at all the nooks and crannies: https://www.eastwood.com/internal-frame-coating-aerosol-black-14oz.html.

    Fancy Rear Bumper

    I guess one could argue that they protected the bumpers in some small way, but I think most people treat them as cosmetic items. The appeal they usually have is for someone restoring their 240 who wants to have every optional piece of equipment that was available at that time. You will usually find the largest crowd of restoration purists on Classiczcar, and some of the S30 FB pages (e.g. 240z Registry). Purely my own impressions, and I'm sure others will chime in if they have differing opinions.

    Fancy Rear Bumper

    Yes, the override bar and bumperettes were options...often dealer-installed. Some restoration fans like them (for restoration purposes...a la ClassicZCar), and many others prefer the clean lines of the thin bumpers w/o them. If you decide you don't want to keep them, and they're still in good shape, you can usually sell them for a few bucks.
  6. One complete set of billet aluminum CV adapters, to convert your half-shafts to CV axles, made by Mattndew (on the510Realm). Brand new, never installed. These are for the 930-style CV joints (108mm). Four adapters total, to convert both rear half-shafts. Thanks for looking.

    S30 Whale Tail

  8. Hey Miles, have you had any noise, chatter or squeal issues with those Carbotechs? I'm currently running the Porterfield R-4S and am reasonably happy with them, but always willing to try something new. Mostly auto-x and track use, but the R4's were driving me nuts when cold. Thx.
  9. Apples and oranges. With the GC sleeves, one removes the stock spring perch and welds on a new perch ring for the provided coilover sleeves (kind of the standard coilover installation). The Cosmo sleeves sit on the stock spring perch, and are shorter than most coilover sleeves, which is why the others have pointed out that ride height adjustability is limited as compared to other coilover conversions. If the Cosmos meet your needs, however, go for it....you can't beat the price. Here's a pretty decent step-by-step write-up on the Cosmos: Cool project, BTW.
  10. The BCs have a nice design that allows one to adjust ride height without affecting suspension bump travel...this makes them an attractive option for a daily driver that will see a lot of varied road conditions.

    New source for CV axle conversions?

    Glad you chimed in, Fritz. I think it's great to have some new options here; so thanks for bringing these into the market!
  13. I am not aware of any manuals that contain this level of information, Joost....but that would certainly be nice. I just emailed you a few minutes ago -- tracking info shows the package was delivered yesterday.
  14. Checked some spare parts lying around in the garage. 😜
