  1. Yup that's a 2002 with a trunk spoiler. I am so enjoying this discussion!
  2. I want to get a rear spoiler for my 510. Would love the one that Daniel Wu has on Tanto (http://www.speedhunters.com/2020/06/daniel-wu-tanto-510/). Not into the flexible polyurethane stuff, prefer rigid plastic or fiberglass. Any guidance is appreciated, I understand opinions vary on rear spoilers, but I like the shorter less imposing style, not wings. Feel free to post pics for reference!

    I am looking for a nice trunk mounted spoiler for my 510 sedan. Would love to see pictures of what you might have? Prefer a fiberglass or solid spoiler, not into the wings or the flexible polyurethane stuff. I will also start a thread asking about what guys have used as spoilers on 510's from other brands? I know this is super hard to describe, but the best spoiler reference I have fro what I am looking for is the one on Tanto, Daniel Wu's 510 (http://www.speedhunters.com/2020/06/daniel-wu-tanto-510/) Thanks for the help...Greg

  4. Cool, I found the horn mounts, but the horn I have isn't stock, so that looped me. Thanks for the help!
  5. Cool, thanks for the support guys!
  6. I have the factory underhood service light for my 69 510, anyone know where it mounts?
  7. Can someone post a picture of where the stock horn mounts in a 510 sedan? My 69 came to me with the horn in a box of spare parts, I found the horn wire, but can't figure out how it mounts or where? Also, does a 510 have one horn or 2? I think my 240Z had 2 horns?
  8. Great advice, Thanks! I did get the Hazards working over the weekend. I noticed that the dome light worked once the car was started, which let me know I had a dirty chassis ground (car running=vibrating=ground contact) so I went and cleaned the major grounds and voila! the Hazards work and the dome light works. Now I need to find the correct location for the horn to mount and the underhood service light...
  9. Tracing the wiring on a diagram for the Hazard flasher and switch and I found a device called a "T. S. P. L."? Anyone know what a TSPL is, or where to find it? It could stand for Turn Signal Parking Lamp? It appears to combine the turn signals left and right through a diode or relay? Not sure what it is? All help appreciated!
  10. Will do! I'll get back to you as soon as I have tried that.
  11. You guys are awesome! Started hunting around and found the headlight relay last night (Thanks for the location help Hainz and Mike). It had a broken wire, so a little work with a soldering iron and were all back in business, high and low beams work! Stoked. So the stalk switch pulled toward the steering wheel is high beam and pushed forward is low beams on my car, seems backward? Anyone know if that's the normal switch positioning functionality?
  12. My 1969 510 sedan has no high beams? The lights are there, the column switch, etc, is all there, and if I jump 12V to the lights they work. I need to know if the 69 cars use a headlight relay? If they do, any idea where I should look for it? I know the headlights are ground switching, and I'm heading towards removing the steering wheel to work on the horn as well, but thought I would gather as much info before I dive in as I can. Thanks, Greg
  13. On my 1969 510, the Hazard lights do not work. The turn signals work just fine, which is a separate flasher relay, and the running lights all work. I'm thinking it's either the flasher unit or the switch? The flasher unit is a lot easier to swap out, so I was going to try a NAPA Echlin ECH-MC23016 12V flasher as a replacement. Anyone use that flasher before with good results? Is it common for the Hazard switch to fail? Just curious as I have been slowly working through the electrical gremlins in the car and am curious to other's knowledge and experience. Thanks!
  14. I have one on my 510. I just installed it last month. I'm running an L18 with an unknown header, shorty Mikuni intake, and the Mikuni 40's. It took a lot of fitting to get the shield to bolt on my car, 2 hours worth. I like it though, it's doing the job and looks good. I looked at it as being the place to start instead of having to fab the whole thing from scratch, so even with the fitting time i'm about even on the money and faster on the time... My $0.02
