    Hey there,

    Nice to see people using pictures of my car

    Uhmm, if you want a set exactly the same as that, your best bet will probably be the Australian guys on the board (alfadog, jmt240kgtr), they have better and more access to such lights.

    However, if you're after the GTR set, it is opposite to the picture ie. in picture inside circle has reverse lamp outer / brake lamp inner. You should talk to Chloe from MidwestZ, if you're really nice she may find out whether she can get some for you, she's helped me out lots and I'll be buying stuff through her the moment I can.

    However, expect to pay a pretty penny for GTR ones.

    JMT240KGTR probably has some GL tail lights (outer reverse light) spare he might sell you... if you want some GT-R ones (inner reverse light, see attached picture) I should be able to get you some but they'd be more expensive...

    Since the topic here is about custom tail lights swaps to Z cars, some of you might find a huge thread (over 5000 views & nearly 300 replies!) over at HybridZ.org forums that has tons of photos and great ideas for Z customizers.

    Thread that I started there last year, titled "What Tail lights will work on a 240Z?," is at http://www.hybridz.org/phpBB2/viewto...275&highlight=

    As follow up support to that thread I later created a featured "Custom Tail Lights" section at my ZPARTS.COM website at http://www.zparts.com/showcase/taill...ase/index.html that some of you might find interesting as well.

    Enjoy,

    SLEEK Z

    Hey Again,

    Taking a leaf from Sleek Z's book, I thought I'd photoshop the 240K lights onto the Z, I'm not sure how the scale is, being I dont have a 240Z close to try and figure it out, however, if I happen across the local car dealer in his Z one day, I'll see if he wouldn't mind taking some side by side comparison pictures.

    Anyway... If the scale is right, I think it looks great, having rear round lights will match the front round headlamps.

    If the Z belongs to anyone here, sorry it was destroyed I pinched it from one of the threads SleekZ showed.

    The bonus of using K lights is you'd be keeping with the same manufacturer and around the same era.

    I was trying to imagine this a while ago.. thanks for the PS, it looks about the right scale.

    And it looks GREAT (in my opinion). Still think the GT-R ones would look better though...........

    OK OK, I can take a hint.

    In this picture, I've transferred the whole rear panel across, it has been shortened (not as wide) to fit the back of the Z and had the angles taken off the edges (rounded like the outside lamp surrounds).

    I left the GTR badge there cause ... it's a GTR bade for craps sake, it deserves to be there!

    Are you talking about the pictures, or the lights???

    I think the lights are about right.... maybe even a bit too small....

    I've attached an image to show, bit of an explanation if needed though.

    Outer light frame diameter = 200mm
    Outer light lens diameter = 140mm

    Inner light frame diameter = 150mm
    Inner light lens diamater = 140mm

    BrianG,

    I think you may have started another Z retro conversion here!

    Great idea and Michael, great work with the photos; the K lights look great on the Z.

    If anyones interested in rear lights, let me know, or PM me, cheers.
