240Z: Repair lights, turn signal and locks disassembly, preparing for replating

Had a bit of spare-time today and decided it’s time to get some stuff done for the car once again. Wanted to have some parts replated (yellow zinc) so i grabbed everything that seemed to be worth replating. Here are all the small transmission parst that will go for replating (not all of them)

And than i found some other stuff that had to be disassembled first like the side marker / Turn signal lights:

Engine compartment repair light (Early version with the toggle type switch). before:

After ( I cut the wires since i will replaced them with new cables. the old ones are quite brittly and Nissan had a person with bad soldeirng skills for their soldeirng work *lol*):

Then the hood stay / lock mechanics:

So here are all the parts ready for replating. Still need to remove old paint (will do that tomorrow) before sending them. In case if you wonder how i remember where all the parts belong – What you see on this blog is actually just a small fraction of the pictures i make. I like to make all kind of “exploded view” shots like the ones above to remember the order they came in (FSM is wrong sometimes, or a bit unclear). And i also mark my pictures as seen here. When the parts return i will put them in the boxes again which belong to each part of the car 🙂
