I have asked Google to review the site so it will hopefully remove the message soon. I've also asked our hosts to tighten...

    Fuse box diagram

    Hiya, This is all a bit nerdy but the fuse box diagram on my car is in Japanese, so I blue tac'd an English one over the top. I'm going to laminate a new one as mine went wrinkly after a few years, but I could do with an image of a UK one to copy. Can anyone find one on the net or photo...

    Recommended clutch for fast road / some launches

    Hiya, Before the car got laid up I ate the clutch being a complete tool. After burning it up it stank for ages, and now under full power it'll slip. I have launch control and like to boot it now an again, so thinking of uprating it. I don't want to spend £800 on a clutch though. I don't...

    Hello! I'm kinda back, looking at a new job so I can then put the Z back on the road :) I was just wondering if anyone knew about converting a 300 to HIDs using the 99 spec setup? I believe aftermarket kits are now illegal so when I come to MOT again I'll have to remove mine and...

    Speeding tickets and reminders

    Hi all, Just a quicky, a friend of mine got an SP30, 36 in a 30mph zone, d'oh. Anyway he claims that if he ignores it then they must send him a reminder, what if it was lost in the post? If he gets a reminder he'll cough up and take the points (he's already done the speed awareness rubbish...

    I've resprayed my 300 :)

    Hi all, As some might be aware last November I left work to find someone had driven into my 300. Just damage to wing, front bumper, bumper bar, fog light etc. Anyway fast forward to last week and I finally had the money to get my 300 fixed up. I did all the prep work myself and left the gun...

    Four wheel tracking/laser alignment in Somerset?

    Hi all, Can anyone recommend somewhere to do the tracking on my car please? Being a 300zx I need all four wheels aligned, which eliminates every tracking place I know. There is a place in Bridgwater but last time I went there (and any time a friend has been there) they've been a-holes. Don't...

    Digital clamp meter recommendations / help

    Hi all, Ok thought I'd invest in a clamp meter. The problem I'm having is getting one that measures DC mA (I think), none seem to mention it, AC/DC volts, resistance etc, they may all do it and it's very obvious but being a novice I'm not sure what to look for. Have been to Halfords, they...

    Hi all, bit of a long shot. Does anyone own a Uni-T (Uni Trend) UT101 Multimeter. Available from Halfords about 5-6 years ago, about £65, seems alright. In short I took it apart to replace the amp fuse, and accidentally took the main controll switch apart. Underneath it are some metal...
