Del-A-Lum LCA bushings

Does anyone know who makes Del-A-Lum LCA bushings for Datsun front LCA's. Specifically 240Z-280Z? Not looking for Poly and not looking for Mono-Ball. Specifically want the Del-A-lum style. Any local fabricators ( Byron ) make them? http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v201/Monobloc/89%20GTA/Suspension/...

Re: BACK TO MY NISSAN ROOTS

If the Cities and Province want us to support these low lifes with our Taxes ( and we already do ) , then maybe the Cities should pay our Insurance deductibles. Send the city or Province the bill for their incompetence in dealing with these issues over the last 40+ years.

Re: Improving crash safety without a cage

Here's a tip for your lighting system. Replace all the side marker lights and Tail lights with LED bullbs. Not only are they brighter, but they draw substantially less power than regular bulbs. Reduces the load on your alternator and they also last longer. I bought all of my LEDS from an online stor...

Re: Improving crash safety without a cage

I wouldn't bother with the extra switch and relay for turning on headlites with the ignition switch. Juts remember to turn the headlights on with the regular HL switch. Once you start vou do it regularly it becomes a habit. One of the big problems with Automatic Daytime headlights is that they DO co...

Re: Improving crash safety without a cage

Funny, you mentioned the horns Keith. I just bought a couple of Fiamm " Freeway Blasters " for the 280Z. Stock horns are pathetic. Got them right after my episode on the I-5 last year. Near death experience... Mirrors are positioned terrible on the Z. Too far back from the A pillar and the...

Re: Improving crash safety without a cage

Here's a thought. Why not have wifey and kids drive out in a Daily Driver and you take the 510? Problem solved. They are comfortable and safe and you will a support vehicle with Pit Crew is always handy. That's what most couples I know do and it makes sense. You have to sell the idea though. " ...

Re: Improving crash safety without a cage

Cages in race cars are designed to be used in conjunction with full driver restraints, a proper racing seat and HELMETS. As one who has driven fully caged cars on the street for many years, my biggest fear was always being involved in a crash with out a helmet. You unprotected head hits the cage and...

Re: 280zx Inserts

Morning Richard, I had the Illumina's (5 way adjustable) in my AE86, with custom wound #300 springs. It was ok. In the summer I ran the setting at 5 and in the winter dropped it to 3. At least in the case of my Toyota, I put over 200,000 Km on them....drove on gravel to go mountain biking, did some...

Re: 280zx Inserts

Byron and others. Do the Tokico Illumina's have enough rebound control for 250 to 300 lb springs? I've heard they can be a bit under damped??
On price point Tokicos win... but will they last? Or should I just bite the bullet and buy the Koni Race inserts?

Wheel Tire sizing site

Don't know if this has been posted before. Found this handy site that allows you to compare wheel and tire dimensions in real time. You can play with different widths, tire and rim diameters, aspect ratios, offsets etc. Even calculates speedometer differences between packages: http://www.rimsntires....

Recommnded shop for Gas Tank repairs

Anyone have a recommended shop in Lower Mainland, BC for fuel tank repairs? I'd like to get the Z' gas tank fully cleaned out tested for leaks and powder coated. Please don't recommend Port Moody Rads, as I had a very bad experience with them 2 years ago and will never use them again. TIA.

Re: 510 for sale NOT MINE

Don Also has some 16 x 8" steel wheels for sale. I think they are Bassett's. Good rubber on the 16" s as well, although I can't remember what they were. I think they were Kumho's.
