    I didn't see this post before I posted mine. That's the exact bottle I have. Only the part number on mine does not have the N in it. I bought mine at least 6-7 years ago. You probably got the new part number. I looked my part number up and it does not exist any longer. I will edit my previous post so people don't look up the wrong part number.

    Part number 999MP-MTF00NP I believe this stuff is gl4, but not 100% sure. I just read everything on the bottle, but it does not state what GL it is. I hope it is because I put it in one of my transmissions.

    I got some gl4 from nissan. I can get the part number when I get home from work.
  4. I had to replace the control arms, T/C rods, ball joints and steering arms from a 210 (not a B210) or 310 to fit the ZX struts. I ran coilovers, but I would think you could cut the spring seat off your old struts and weld them in. The only bad thing is that the ZX strut tube is bigger/wider than the 1200. I hope I answered your question.
  5. I measured the cable. It's the 43" one.
  6. The 5th gen. I looked up an 85 corolla. I'll check my car when I get home.
  7. I used throttle cables from 80's corrollas on all my SR/KA swaps. Availiable new and used everywhere. They are availiable at rockauto, 25" and 43". Not sure which one i've used, but guessing the 43". I can measure them tonight when I get home, if you like.
  8. Wow DF, I would have never guessed that you would sell your coupe! You've put so much time and effort (time X effort = money) into that beast. Definitely one of my favorite coupes of all time. GLWS!!
  9. Thanks DF. At this point i think I will take the easy route and buy HID bulbs.
  10. Ok. So I did understand. Thanks!
  11. I wasn't thinking of gettig LEDs, but HIDs. Like you mentioned, you've got to fork over good money to get a good LED unit. Supposedly, these Hella lamps have the hockey stick cut off for the incoming traffic on the left side. Here's the description from the website: PRODUCT DESCRIPTION Hella 7" Round H4 Conversion Headlamps Datsun 240Z 260Z 280Z S30 280ZX S130 Roadster 311 70476 99996-70476 Made in Germany Includes 60W/55W H4 Hella bulbs These lamps are designed for cars that live in and/or travel in countries that drive on the right hand side of the road. They emit the “hockey stick” lighting pattern where there is a sharp cutoff on the left hand side that keeps the light from glaring into on coming tracffic Also, these lamps have just a slight curvature on the glass face- not totally flat, but not a noticeable outward bulge like the OE sealed beam types." So, my question to clarify things for me, will I be ok if I buy some HID bulbs? I won't have to upgrade to a relay system to avoid melting anything? At the same time I'll have better lighting for night driving? Or just run with what I've got and use the relay system? Information overload ?.
  12. Very good point DF! Thanks to all of you for your tips and sharing your knowledge. More light and less current draw... It sounds like it's a no brainer to run with HID or LED instead of what the kit came with.
