What have you done for your 370z today? (3)


Recommended Posts

@Chubbs @Dave G

The LED side indicators that you've both fitted obviously don't throw up any errors on the dash?

I finally found some time to give the Z (and Juke) a little TLC.  To my shame, this is the first proper clean and vacuum they've had this year.  The Z looked very unloved. The final r

Not what I've done for my Zed but more what it has done for me... 3 year anniversary today!!! Loved every year, month, day, hour, minute and second. Did I mention that I like it...?  Here's to ma

No - no errors. I've never had any canbus issues with the Z - Does its technology pre-date all that interfering stuff? I think maybe it does?

Maybe you're right there - but then again, do that sort of stuff with my 20 year old BMW and the dash lights up in a Christmas tree stylee!

Yes, annoying, isn't it? Having put LED bulbs into my motorhome DRLs, every time I drive it I get a message on the dashboard telling me there's a problem (they were supposed to be canbus-friendly, but clearly they aren't).

Ahh, good tip. No I hadn't. When I do, it says the same as yours. At Atherstone...they did share the same plane! Or, there's only one parcel and the Royal Mail have to flip a coin to see which one of us gets it! 

 

Edit: I missed some posts, looks like Gav is still in the running! 

Arrived today but no one in to take the parcel, I`ll collect them in the morning 👍

A million thanks to DieselPit for letting us know about these LED side markers. They're excellent. Easy to fit (30 seconds each side). They are nice & bright, nice & orange and in real life the 'flow' of the LEDs is more pronounced than on the video.

Totally chuffed! They help bring the old dinosaur into the 21st Century a bit!

 

I don't normally like animated indicators but I do like that :)

Just ordered a replacement red 'GT-R' style Start button, to replace the white one and make me go faster. £7.93, including tax. Ebay sell them for over £37!!!!! (I'm only getting the red insert, but that's all you need, isn't it?)

Anyone fancy a 'Race From China'?

 

That's just the plastic button top by the looks of it, not the whole 'switch' you get from Nissan.

I still have my old white button so if you want that I can post it to you in case you damage the your original swapping the parts over.

Thanks Paul - that's very kind of you. I have a very nice 'how to' video* of how to dismantle the button without damaging it, but I'll bear your offer in mind, if I may, just in case I prove to be ham-fisted or unlucky.

Yes, as I said, it's just the red plastic insert (but you don't need anything else really, do you?).

Prep is important - although it should be keyed, it must be smooth & dust-free. Patience is the key with rattle cans (not something I'm too good at). Very thin coats and wait for it to dry before the next spray. Good luck!

Masking these was a real pita, never again 😂 two light coats of etching primer then flat it tomorrow with some 2500 wet and dry.

I hope you tested them before you set to work Gav?!? Looking forward to seeing the fruits of your labour. 

Tested.... Err nope 😂 it crossed my mind but I got too busy prying the lenses off.

My main reason for doing it is that I wanted the Z to stand out and I just didn't think it did that with the all smoked look. Also it will be more like the black Z burgers on the front and back. 

Just hope they end up looking how I imagined they would 👍

Looks like we got our spray booths from the same supplier!

 

Edit - Nice idea, by the way. I can picture it in my mind's eye. Hope it works out for you.

So I made a schoolboy error in not reading the instructions on the pearlescent paint, I'd primed the side repeaters with grey etching primer and then when I went to add the pearlescent it even up silver 🙃 so I've now rubbed then down again and primed then with white primer, should work out ok this time round 😄

Simple one for me, had my Zed serviced by my local independent garage. Nothing major, just an oil and filter change as well as new coolant. I'll do the other bits myself (new pollen filter, clean the K&N air filters). Another stamp in the book...
