    PROPOSED AD -

    Wanted, Series 1 JDM TT tail lights and centre panel in pristine condition.
    Will swap for an OEM 2K spec set, still in their boxes, if your S1 tails and centre panel are pristine.

    Reason? I have a silver JDM TT Z32. July 1989 build and looks completely OEM on the outside, I'd like to keep it that way including the orange bits on the rear tail lights.
    Opinions?

    Opinions? You're a madman!

    That's a hell of a good swap for somebody

    Pristine might be a tall order. You should be able to find reasonably good ones thought. Not worth trade for 2k spec.
    I've only ever replaced my standard lights with ones that managed to be not cracked/crazed from old age

    ryzan Black Mesa? Fat chance...

    I thought this at first too, however realistically the number of immaculate condition original lights available would be much lower than 2k spec lights (since there's still brand new in box sets of those) so if anything would be a better deal for him really.

    Guys, thanks for the feedback.
    rob260 - You called it! :)
    NI85 - You are correct.
    ryzan - thanks mate.

    Short version, I really want to see S1 tails on this 1989 JDM TT. Originality, resale value and all that.

    Hear me out please guys.
    I reckon most S1 tails are landfill by now.
    Also reckon that there are some very very clean S1 tails that were changed out for styling reasons during restos on some barn find Zeds. Those S1 tails might be tucked away in a shed somewhere?

    Should I advertise a cash-my-way depending on condition caveat? How the hell would you manage that. I'd need to see them.
    I live in the middle of nowhere. Not keen to drive thoundies of km's to look at 10 sets of S1 tails that are worse than the ones I already have.

    We do love solving puzzles on this forum...

    If buying new, profit of selling 2k spec lights would be max $650

    Its expensive just an option if wanting pristine condition. 2k lights are 1244 Aud delivered new for all 3 pieces out of Z1 USA so im sure there jdm s1 would be alot cheaper than here?

    I had no idea what the S2 tail kits were worth these days. No wonder rob260 called me a madman.
    Also had no idea that the S1 tail kits would still be available.
    So, probably best if I knock this idea on the head. I'll advertise WTB some pristine S1 tails and see what happens, then sell my 2K tail kit later.

    Thanks all :)
