  1. That is indeed mine, although on the old wheels.
  2. Saw this around 2.30pm today as I crossed right in front of you at the Tesco crossing. Black Z, reg S12YEM. Looked standard, might have had the windows tinted a little, didn't want to seem odd just staring.
  3. I had mine done by Drury Lane Garage in Manchester last year. The car felt more planted once it was all done. My car is standard too. I paid £144 inc vat.
  4. Not sure if the Fairlady wiring is the same, but a few weeks ago I used the Incartec 29-674 harness with the Pioneer patch lead for the steering wheel controls. See my topic below yours, you may get a pointer? My guess is you've not connected the blue wire from your new harness to the blue wire on the harness of your new head unit. Also be sure to connect the 2nd blue wire on your new harness to the new radio's harness, it's for the power aerial.
  5. Good to see another fellow local.
  6. Thanks Ben, After more Googling too, I've removed the console & found another blue wire on the new harness which was cable tied to it, so I missed it. Looks like I've just plugged the amp into my Pioneer harness. It has a piggy back blue wire which I stripped along with the one on the new harness, crimped a bullet connector on each on & hey presto, full signal & RDS data. Just for those who are searching in the near future, it's an easy thing to miss & confuse you a little, it did me anyhow.
  7. The blue wire is definitely connected as there's sound from all speakers, if I unplug that blue wire all the sound goes. Unless you mean there's an extra wire for the power antenna?
  8. Hi all, Today I fitted a Pioneer bluetooth single DIN I removed from my old car, I fitted it in the Z using the correct cables from Incartec to go with the old BOSE set up, works fine with SD card etc, the only issue seems to be the radio reception is pretty much non existent. It'll pick up radio 1 in a round about way, but no other stations. There's no RDS data either.. The standard aerial cable slotted straight into the short Pioneer extension cable on the back of the unit.. Am I missing a trick here? Is there some sort of Jap connector to the rest of the world I'm missing?? PS: An upgrade to double DIN will happen at some point.
  9. Bargain for someone as these are £180 new,,
  10. The usual reply here, I've been there, is to replace the standard line with a braided steel one & thoroughly bleed the system till you're bored of doing it. I also added a length of exhaust heat wrap around the line. This was 2 years ago 7 the pedal feel since has been spot on. Another culprit is the clutch slave cylinder, whether yours is the external or internal type.
  11. Thanks both of you. Definitely nothing stuck in the treads of any of the tyres. They were both off yesterday to do the rear pads (noise was there before that). I've had it up in the air again for a thorough check & nothing is out of place, I just can't put my finger on it. I could understand pin pointing it to a corner, but it sounds underneath the car...
  12. I noticed this last week & put it down to something sticky on one of the rear tyres, that's kind of how it sounds. It is consistent with road speed too. you can hear it bouncing off the house walls as you're driving around. It doesn't sound like one of the rear corners, but possibly underneath the back of the car. I put the rear end on stands at the weekend & ran it through the gears & the noise wasn't there, but it is when the wheels are on the ground & you're driving. It sounds sort of a rubbery sticky noise I just can't put my finger on.
  13. Once last week, twice this week & when at the lights next to me was greeted with a thumbs up & a nod. A6144 Carrington turning left onto Carrington Lane. N** GPH.
  14. Mine last year was a very light sounding metallic rattle when reversing up the drive. It turned out to be the heatshield on the passenger side cat, there was a very small section rusted away, I just pulled the offending bit off & never heard from it again. Could also be the innards of the cat / exhaust breaking up if you're really unlucky, or something else entirely.
  15. Open to other ideas if people have them. I've been looking, believe me, but when you get into it a lot of sites are telling me they won't fit my Z.
