For me - this and the Electromotive 280ZX must be the coolest ZX's ever...for my eyes anyways.

It's even better than that. The reserve hasn't been met at $5M.

Got my signal switches in a lightning fast 7 days from thailand to san diego from when I placed my order to when it arrived, they are 5 wire switches correct for 70-73 and they look genuine and in NOS condition in case any one else wants to snag one the seller has 5 left.

How about Paul's jacket? It's a tad cheaper than his car!

Have you tried fitting it to the steering column yet? I have seen these with two different shaft diameters.

Let us know what you find out.

You are correct, the one I received was setup for the smaller diameter, I should have looked closer! All the parts could be swapped over to my old switch casting, but I just decided to dremel off a few of the casting ridges on the inside of the hole of the new one so that it fits my steering column. Does anyone happen to know what the smaller ID switched are correct for? The correct one from my 71 car says Niles TS86. The one I bought off ebay says TS82.
