    Default Trip to Japan

    Hello everyone,

    I am going to Japan for a business trip, kid's school, and vacation from this weekend till beginning of August.
    I will be posting interesting things I find over there soon.

    If anyone has questions regarding impossible-to-find parts, please post here so I can look for them or do a possible group buy from suppliers.

    Also I will conduct final inspection of the limited reproduction US tail lamps upon shipping there.

    http://www.classiczcars.com/forums/s...2&postcount=15. I think someone in Oregon that imports JDM parts had them for awhile, but I am not sure if they still carry them. I can't recall the name of the place though.

    They are always available over there, but is there demand here in US?
    It is not metal and I wonder Original-lovers here want them.....
    Also Z432 version splash panel is available too! Those were never came in metal to begin with.

    Hi esprist,

    How many Z432s are you going to bring into the U.S.?
    Remember you can buy mine,also OEM NOS Z432 dual exhaust system is available which every S30 can have one with a extension.

    It still makes me sad to hear that. Hopefully that is not the case. I want to see you keep your Z432 forever.

    Kats, that is unfortunate to hear you are considering selling it. I do not know what you would want and wish I could pick it up, it would be really cool to have one. I guess my Z will have to do for now.

    Hi Kobo, I am curious if there was any progress made from the meetings you had in Japan, in regards to the reproduction of the replacement headlight covers that fit the OEM rings?
    I just got my headlight rings back from the chrome shop and am now looking for options. If you have something in the works, I will gladly wait, otherwise I am thinking of approaching a local company who specializes in vacuum forming plastics and the creation of 3 dimensional signs. I know it is a difficult prospect, with limited volume causing the price per to escalate. I am wondering if the demand for replacements is great enough?
