    Default Black Pearl mirrors

    Anyone have part numbers or know what "other" cars these mirrors came on? I need a right side mirror, complete, for a 78 Black Pearl. SAP "Racing Mirrors"

    Hi Mike:
    See: http://zhome.com/History/72AccBroch.htm

    They were part of the Factory Shade Kit - and at the time they could be ordered as a set. They are no longer available from Nissan. E-Bay is your best bet.

    FWIW,

    Can you post a good close-up pic of one? I've got a mess of mirrors from 260's and 280's and may have what you need.

    Here's a pic of one from the brochure. They were also available on non-BPE cars. My car has the 'shade kit'.

    Looks a lot like the mirrors on my car...but mine are only one screw...I think MSA sells them as "racing mirrors." I know they're in the catalog. Here's a pic from MSA...

    They might not be identical to mine...but mine vibrate badly and basically spin on thier pivots.

    Now that I'm thinking about it...what do the stock 280Z mirrors look like...oh well, that's a question for another thread.

    People always refer to them as BPE or ZZap mirrors, but they were much more common than that. Just like the factory alloy wheels, the were just a 260/280Z option.

    If not clear enough I will take a pic of the one on my car, be a couple of days, THANKS for the replies, are those MSA mirrors same as Nissan? The car has had 1 repaint, came with the stripes(lost in paint job) sunroof, rear louvers, BP wheels(upgraded???? to cross, I have 3 BP wheels still looking for that 4th one) and only ONE of the mirrors, dealer must have dropped one and broke it or just didn't feel like putting it on, and correct paint code. Would like to have both mirrors and the BP wheels "to feel cool". Mike

    Stock mirror looks a lot more sturdy...probably doesn't flop around like mine. Might have to pick one up.

    Here's some pic's of the mirrors I have. If they are the ones you need, PM me and we can work out a deal.

    All the mirrors I have will need re-painting. I can bead blast them before shipping for a little extra.

    They are ambidoortrous. (they'll work on either side)

    I can put together a 'set' but again, they will need to be painted on your end.
