      Installed fender mirrors on the weekend! Also my old exterior mirror is up for grabs if anyone wants to make me an offer on it.

        New steering wheel is on! I can't believe how easy the swap was, old off and new hub and wheel on in 15 mins, no issues at all.

              Nice looking steering wheel, is it new vintage looking, also, what are you using to illuminate the foot wells in post #16?

                It's an old authentic Nardi wheel I got used off ebay. I found this adapter on another forum and it worked perfectly http://www.ebay.com/itm/121182978883.

                The foot well lights are just a row of LED lighting I hooked up to one of the toggle switches. They add a nice touch at night.

                  Just curious about the sound proofing you mention from Lowes....is that the foil stuff in the back hatch area you are referring to? What exactly is it called? I am guessing it is made for something else and won't be labeled "sound proofing for your noisy datsun z" . Thanks!

                    Yeah, it's labelled for duct insulation. Make sure you get the adhesive stuff, it's heavier and less thick than standard duct insulation. It goes on pretty easy if you've cleaned the surface first. Make sure wear gloves or your hands will get cut up from the sharp foil.

                    Here's a picture if you're trying to find it on the shelf:



                    As a reference I used 4 rolls to do the floors and trunk. Not including the doors. I've had a few people in the car since, they noticed it was less loud (note: still not quiet lol).

                      Hey, thanks a bunch for the details on the duct insulation.

                        Have you driven with the new sound deadening? Does it make a difference?

                            Did I mention I bought a cheap new DSLR? Oh and that I installed fender flares? Now I need to drop the car 2 inches and get 16x9s on it.

                                I'm buying these crazy aggressive 15x10s instead. The car is going to look soooo mean, wow I'm excited. Currently we're trying to work out shipping. I've been burned too many times by broker fees from Fedex and UPS. Giving uShip.com a try, if nothing good comes up there USPS.



                                I can only find a picture of these rims on a 2+2.
