    Thanks everyone.
    Just by coincidence an old friend saw my Z picture on my fb page and popped up to tell me that he is the resident electrical guru at Fourways Engineering.
    So, my very first drive was from work, 40mins to Fourways. Now booked in for a couple of weeks time for original steering wheel and gear-knob, alloys & tyres, service and door mirrors

    Sorry, I've not got any contact details. It was a long long time ago.

    However, he was a member of The Classic Z Register and you may be able to find out more from Jon Newlyn of the Register. Maybe through their Facebook group? https://www.facebook.com/classiczregister

    Ha, I just came here to post this. I actually do like the Ferrari style lights as well, and I imagine it'd be tricky to return to stock now? Are you going to keep them @Gnose ?

    On other cars I've seen pics of they never looked legit, rather more of an after thought design wise. But i must admit the colour of the car, the black bumper and the hatch louvres makes all the difference in this particular case... i likey :)

    Thank you both !
    Yes, I’ll be keeping the lights and the Gnose.
    Fourways have put a stock steering wheel and gear knob on and are fitting some new rims.
    I am toying with the idea of going black with the rear panel and may wrap it to see if I like the look

    I would wager that's an S13/14 gearbox in there, so you will likely not be able to fit an original gear knob without some gear lever or knob mods.

    IIRC I think the S13/14 gear knob is M10 x1.25, the S30 series is M8 x1.25.

    Ps. Lovely purchase! You must be VERY happy!

    Doesn't look like an S14 gear lever to me.

    My S13 box has a standard S30 gear knob, what doesn't fit @AliK?

    Thank you, I’m ecstatic
    I don’t know enough to know which gearbox it has, I’ll ask Fourways, however, I know they replaced the lever as a P.O. had cut the thread off to fit the aftermarket knob and also the bushes were missing

    Ah, yes, the bushes were missing in mine too and the gear change was transformed when I put them in!!

    So you may have the original ‘box then!

    Mine too. I replaced mine with the original nylon type. I'm not sure if the brass ones are better to use, but I thought with the limited mileage the car does longevity isn't really an issue.
