Fender Mirrors

Post by gokiburix » 15 Apr 2008 13:49

Hi All!

I'm new to the 510 scene. I was wondering if anyone has put S30 Z fender mirrors on a 510...and if so, what position?

I'm looking to put a pair on my 510.

thanks in advance!

Hi thanks for the quick reply. I already have the fender mirrors. I was just wondering how you mount it on a 510. I know how to do it on a Z (i have one) but more importantly, I was hoping someone would know the correct measurements to where exactly on the fender to mount them.

thanks in advance again!

AWESOME!! THANKS!! this applies to both sides? ...because on the S30 Z is different for each side.
Also, how hard is it to install on a 510? Looks a lot different from a Z as far as i can tell.

Looks exactly the same on the other side, I have never seen them on a Z so I have no idea, but my JDM Coupe has them the same. I don't think that would be hard to install, but what is easy for me may not be easy for you.....I have no hesitation when it comes to cutting or drilling on my car.....I have done so much to it so far that drilling a hole is nothing....just make sure you measure many times....then take a break, have a smoke or Coke, then measure again.....the rule applies, measure twice and cut once....

if you take the fenders off, you will see an indent in the upper/fender frame rail.
this is there for the fenders mirrors - likely for install or adjustment, but could be required for clearance.
just another one of those things to check.

i would be more inclined to put them in a place that was good and visible 9functional), than dimensionally correct.

Sorry to get off topic...

But I am lovin' that front lip/fascia. Is that some BRE molded on? Or is that one of those mysterious japanese parts that no one can get their hands on. :roll:

Yeah that front lip is badarse! Seen it on quite a few Japanese dimes.
Oh and Goichi, no worries, I just found the mirrors after some hardcore surfing and katakana reading. Very expensive and rare I guess.

They went for about $165 on yahoo japan.

I *think* that the lip on that yellow is off a 720 pickup. Molded into the valence.

You can see it a little better in this one...

Sorry to kinda hijack but I have thought about doing this for a while.
