    Rossiz,

    Unfortunately, for the immediate time being, the plastic chrome plating is undergoing a "hiatus" while I recover from a recent open-heart surgery. I am finishing off the last few orders...

    Jim,

    You are right regarding the "extreme authenticity" that Randy has achieved with his tail light strips. I have had his prototypes in my possession for a few days and can attest to the exact...

    I recently had a few of those emblems restored (chrome plated) and would be willing to sell you one if you'd like. However, most, if not all, of them no longer have the mounting posts, so you would...

    Jay,

    Given the very dynamic nature of specialty parts reproductions, limiting one's commitment to reproduce only those items that nobody else is making would tend to be a very expensive exercise...

    Michael,

    Thanks for the information. Funny.....I once owned a 280z black pearl and totally forgot that the shock tower caps were completely different for the later s30's. It's been said that if...

    Carl,

    Thanks for the head's up on the rear shock tower covers. Did Datsun use the same design throughout the s30 line, or were there changes in these parts beween various models? I have a set of...

    Ken,

    As the old saying goes......."very carefully":)

    Leon and Michael,

    As I sort through 60+ fender emblems from the 260z's and 280z's, I find that the colors arround the "Z" seem to range from cloudy white on up to a somewhat bright red, with alot...

    Captain,

    No, there is no way to replate the emblem with the original fill still intact. When the old plating is stripped, the fill will be removed as well. Therein lies the challenge. It is easy...
