Will your insurance cover it?

I have full coverage, so Vert got a few rock chips and it was $100 deductible for brand new one installed.

Danny's Auto Glass in Hampton quoted me at $270 for glass and install. You'll need to supply a new trim kit and possibly a windshield retainer. Assuming they can't save your old ones.

I love this vert! It's clean, has well thought-out mods, and is well taken care of. Also I wanted to thank you, I've been trying to find a good solution for lighting on my own 240 and now I'm conversing with Daniel Stern on come Cibies of my own and bulbs for my OEM chuki fogs. I can't wait to get it all put in!

When i took on the project of restoring my car, i had in mind how it would be done. Stay close the factory look, but tweak out with every bell and whistle possible without turning it into a frankestein. You sir, have done it. This is absolutely the most tasteful, classiest, cleanly restored 240 i have seen. Well done...! I do have to ask though....if you haven't aleady posted in this thread and i missed it, where does one get the carbon fiber roof panel for the visor and dome light area?

Thank you and not a problem. Glad I could help. Actually, I've received several PMs regarding Cibie lights from NICO members.

Thank you and that's exactly what I planned before I made modifications. Headliner cover was restored and wrapped in 3M sheet. If yours is in okay condition, you can fix the cracks with plastic welder and wrapped it with 3M Di-Noc sheet.

I guess it's time for some new pictures. I just installed R32 GTS-T spoiler. I got it for $10 on Yahoo Japan auction, but shipping was a couple of hundred dollars. :( At least, R32 white color perfectly matched with S13's, so I didn't have to paint it. I hooked up the LED 3rd brake light, so it comes on too.

I have no idea how I ended up on this thread soooooo late, but damn man everything looks awesome. I'm on the same lines of just keeping the car clean with basic upgrades. I'm loving it man. Props to keeping it clean

Time for some pictures.

Problem with R32 spoiler was this gap. I cut some plastic and made a spacer.

Recently, I bought a cheap point and shoot camera(Canon A3300IS), so I took some pics with built in effects.

That R32 spoiler looks very good. I'd go that route if I didn't have this type-x spoiler sitting around.

I'd definitely go the route of the R32 spoiler if I needed to swap out. I was looking at Silvia K's aero spoilers, and that R32 just looks better.

But then again, I'm fine with the factory S13 spoiler I do have :)

I think the R32 spoiler is the perfect match

I enjoy my Silvia K's, think the round ends fit the front pop-ups. R32 is too big for my old a** though.

I got this from a junkyard very cheap(like $10), so decided to try something different.

It's a real carbon wrap. It came out very nice and grip feels amazing when I'm driving. It's been sprayed with special clear coat for UV protection, so it should last for a long time. It was way less than buying a new one from dealership and less than re-wrap with leather. This could be the only one in the world.

LOVE this. Looks super nice. I've been trying to think of a way to keep the cruise control and still have a nicer wheel. This might be a good compromise.

The steering wheel wrap? I think he sent it somewhere to get it done. It is freaking awesome

my apologies, I didn't realize that this was 14 pages of 94_240sx's car. I thought it was post a pic of your vert.

Cleanest Vert I have ever seen.

Question.

Can you please tell me what Sharpie you used. Because I went through 3 different ones and chopped up every single pen in my house that looks like it might fit and none of them worked.

Thanks in advanced.
