You can see that for US cars the parts are the same...
I think you've both got '76 280Z so it should be the exact same rack.
There's almost no places in the UK selling spares. Hopefully, somebody on the forum has a 280Z that they've converted to RHD and has the old rack...
240 ones are different to the 260/280 ones I believe, they also vary LHD / RHD and from market to market (the US ones are slower lock to lock)...
Yeah you can even use the app these days to get a live translation from the camera.
If this is a full set, we may be calling on you to help with scanning - not even sure the club has one of every edition!
Fascinating, so is there a version of factory shorthand for the R like 'Hi Kiryo' ?
- 'Really Hi Kiryo'? :D
The 'R' is what denotes it as the 260z model over the 'H' used for the 240Z / Fairlady 240Z (HS30)
Not sure if they actually translate to...
Your car should be RS30 unless it's a LHD-RHD conversion, RLS30 is for left hand drive 260z
It's also a 280ZXR underneath which is a bit of a shame give how rare they are.
