So this isn't the best write up but when I started restoring these gauges there was nothing anywhere with this type of info so I felt I had to. They started off like this. The most important thing to do in any electrical restoration is to: A - take lots of pictures for reference. The more the better. B - label or draw a wire layout, I drew mine out because I needed to deep clean the connectors and wires. C - don't rush yourself. Take all the time you need and if you get frustrated take a break. Slowly take apart the wiring harness and remove the bulbs. Remember to label everything. Next take apart the two screws that hold the front housing onto the back gauge plate. It is only two small screws on each. Once disassembled, to this point there is 6 tabs on the dual gauges that need to be drimmeled out to remove the glass and metal divider. Be careful. The clock takes pressure because it's glued. Be careful not to brake the lense. Apply nice even pressure. Next I removed all the paint from the metal piece before applying a high filler primer because of the wire wheel lol. Then I sanded down the plastic gauge cover. Prepped them all and applied the primer to both side. Remember which side needs to be black and which white on the gauge divider. I used a satin black for all the parts requiring black paint, and a nice gloss white for the rest. The white is what helps reflect the OEM lights. To re attach the gauge lenses to the housing I used a high heat, clear gorilla type glue. Be careful applying it because if it gets on the lense you won't be able to fix it. I re used the clock lense and had a local glass shop cut two new Plexi lenses for the dual gauges which cost me 8 USD. Take your time putting everything back together and the finished project will look like this or even better.

Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone knows how to make KMAC camber plates work with OE struts (non-coilover conversion) for 240z's. I've searched around the forums for a while and tried to find some guides or information that could help me make these plates work with my current setup. I briefly talked to John C. a while ago about making them work as he had previous experience with them on a customer's car but other than that I haven't been able to find much. I had a shoulder bushing made to make the KMAC plates work with my struts but after experimenting with them I found that they raised my Z by about an 1-1/2". I'm curious if anyone has been able to fit them without the major raise in ride height. My current strut setup is Tokico Blue lowering springs, Koni 8610-1437 single adjustable shocks and OEM strut insulators. Any information or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Liam Edit: changed topic heading
I have up for sale today a nice set of 240z / Fairlady Z tail lights that are the GENUINE version. These are NOT REMAKES. I had them imported from out of the country, and find that I no longer need them for my project. One of the lens, as indicated in the photo has a crack that does not go through the lens. The other lens has a small crack on the side of the reverse light as well. This cannot be easily seen when they are mounted on the car and do not affect it mechanically whatsoever When you run your fingers across the lens, you cannot feel the crack. Tail lights look great but are not perfect. These are becoming more and more rare and are not easy to come by. Please feel free to pm me any questions you may have. Additional photos upon request. Asking price $700 OBO + shipping. Trust me, they will be packed very nicely. Feel free to make a reasonable offer.
