Gday folks.

Had my roadster for a coupe of months or so now. Have been absorbing your wisdom since then but i came out of hiding and joined earlier this evening after having a bit of success with my bluetooth obd2 and live data on my tablet with the old consult-only port, and thought id share (might be old info I'm not great with forum searching..)

Ive so far replaced the vinyl convertible top, rear rotors, passenger side window motor, done some leather repairs on the seats (and dyed them black) and got the subwoofer amp working again temporarily by jamming up that dodgy relay.

Still on the to-do list include the cam angle sensors (please please please let this work im so over this P0345 bullshit - parts on the way), actually replacing that subwoofer amp relay, replacing the factory head unit (parts on the way), properly cleaning out or replacing those seat motor switches (only work sometimes) and maybe the clutch in the long term (i would like a little more grab when i get a bit violent with my clutch - it seems to slip if i drop it a bit too hard).

I recently bought a second car just for fun (04 suzuki jimny) but it has now become my daily driver (A: because ive grown tired of breaking down and B: because its easier to drive around town and C: im not paranoid about parking it in any of the sketchy places that make up 90% of Mackay) so i can afford to waste a bit of time stuffing around. The local mechanics were very quick to wipe their hands of anything electrical (but are all to happy to replace anything i want replaced for a horrendously exorbitant fee) and the local parts stores have absolutely nothing in stock for this car as it is not a toyota landcruiser, holden commodore or hyundai getz, so it looks like i might be relying on these forums and ebay quite a bit.

Cheers,

Cam :)

      Looks awesome, these always remind me of someone wearing a cap.  This is heaps cheaper than a US company was asking.  At 300ish its worth a shot.  Put up some photos of it once you've finished finessesing.

      My attempt at fitting it would involve a hammer ,blue tack and no more nails

      Spoiler is from Ebay, currently on special. It does look fantastic, and it's a real carbon fibre, not a vinyl wrap.. Regarding fine adjustments, there is a concern that small fibres may cause complications similar to those of asbestos so I'm getting a full face mask and disposable overalls. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/CARBON-FIBER-CS-TYPE-N-STYLE-TRUNK-WING-REAR-SPOILER-FOR-NISSAN-370Z/262399870438

      Looks a pretty damn close fit and so much better than the stock spoiler. Work wheels look great too, very tastefull mods. Got a link to where you ordered your  spoiler from?

      It's a no-name brand, but the quality of workmanship is pretty good. I don't see many classic hand-laid-carbon-fibre faults. It didn't come with any instructions, screws, tape or paper templates. I don't recommend fitting it yourself as it is really time consuming for a beginner (me). But I already started so... OK, trial fitting (screws only). Middle part fits well, the RHS needs minor adjustment (2-4mm) and the LHS needs probably at least several mm. The problem is that it needs to be ground exactly where one of the 4 main screws is. I'll try on the weekend.
