Wow can't be many brand new ZG indicators still around.
They are not specific to the ZG - all JDM S30Zs had a twin bulb setup.
As he notes in the listing though - the lenses haven't got the dividers in them. That, for me, would be the deal breaker at that price, NOS or not. The twin bulb versions of those units have a small metal divider that slots into the lense to give separation between the two sections (indicators and parking lights). The lenses are thus slightly different on the inside incorporating a channel for that divider to locate in. Those lenses on the listing are just the standard undivided ones.
I have a used set of those twin bulb lights with the dividers for both, but am missing one of the lenses (right hand side). Thus, they are sitting on the shelf until I find one!
Not even free delivery at that price!
Is it the inner Amber lens you are missing?
At some point in the 1980s, Nissan ran out of the IKI divided-lense type outers and started shipping the E4100 double lamp complete sets with the non-divided outers. So this set is 'correct' NOS as-delivered from Nissan, but not 100% correct for the E4100 application.
As always Alan, fountain of obscure knowledge! So correct NOS as of how they were shipped in the 80s.
Wish someone would start making the divided lenses again, given all the repro light variants available nowadays.
Something like this
Those look like the dividers, but the lenses I’m talking about are the outer curved ones. The JDM amber ones have a channel to locate on the dividers.
That amber piece come from an Aussie car? It would do with a clear outer lens I guess.
I’ve got a pair of theses with the dividers in them but they have the clear lenses
I swopped for a few bits with Jeff down at fourways
Why would anyone want a divider with an orange lens ?
Err, because it might be correct for the Japanese market?
Ok, I missed off the 'here' in the sentence.
In orange or transparent ? That would of course, reduce the 'value' of OEM parts....
I like the two colours.
Both TBH. I do like the option you posted though - clear split lenses with the small tinting filter.
Doubt it would affect the OEM though. They are mostly in Japan, being bought and sold between Japanese owners, and NOS items will always command silly money.
Separate names with a comma.
