• 240Z: Datsun Switzerland official jackets / hoodies

    A few days ago i found these Datsun Jackets for sale, and found out it was a friend of mine selling those. I thought they where cool, so i went and got them. Turns out those were unused, original swiss datsun merchangdising items. Even tho they’re size L and XL they’re more of a childrens size, and made of a weird plastic material (polyester). it feels like it looks. Like wearing a trashbag or so. Nevertheless, i think they’re super funky and cool and just had to have them. Since i have no clue what to do with them, and since i had a picture-frame leftover, i decided frame the…

  • GARAGE: Version 1.5: New shelves and other stuff in

    Soooo, time for an Update on the Garage.  I’m working on Garage version 1.5. Not because i really planned to do so, but because of lucky circumstances i got hands on some neat stuff which now needs installation and relocation of a few things. Aside from the big neon sign which needs a bit of extra-wiring to have it actuated with the light-switch, my company was parting out again. I missed the big auction where they sold off the complete assembly line stuff for cheap, but at the end it was luck, because it probably saved me a lot of money 😀 but even better so, the parts they didn’t…

  • GARAGE: Datsun sign LED Tube Retrofit

    The old Datsun Dealer neon sign which i bought two weeks ago, is simple  technology, but also a bit outdated and prone to failure. If you have a few FL-tubes in your garage, you know that always one of the starters or tubes itself is not working or starting properly. Also they consume quite some power. Luckily there’s an easy solution. LED Retrofit tubes. They come with a fitting starter (which is just a short-circuit unit, since LED tubes don’t need thyristor starters to ignite.) So the retrofit is just to remove the old starters and FL-tubes and install the new units. The original inverters and wires remain. That’s it.…

  • GARAGE: ADVAN Nobori Flag

    I had the feeling that my garage needs a bit more decoration. But rather than buying fake-stuff i wanted to make sure i get some genuine stuff, without spending a fortune. Many “JDM” Brand fake-things are sold on ebay, but when i stumbled upon this Advan Nobori Flag, which perfectly fits my Advan Equipped EK9, and for a reasonable price too, i had to get it: I have no proof that it isn’t a fake thing, but the seller seemed legit (with not selling 100 similar flags with different prints) and was from Japan. And details like the marks on the packing and this little label on the flag made…
