Trip to JY tomorrow/?

#1

Post by Shagbark » 13 years ago

I'm going to the JY tomorrow and have a question. I need front turn signal/marker light assemblies and a dash that isn't cracked all to heck (I 'm probably dreaming here) for my 82 wagon. If I find a sedan with these parts on it, will they fit my wagon? BTW, if I find some diesel stuff, 280ZX turbos or anything else interesting, I will post it on here.

Yes, front turn signal/marker light assemblies and dash from sedan are identical to wagon. Most everything from front seats forward appear identical between wagon and sedan. Exhaust system is different.

You'll need an offset #2 phillips or #2 phillips bit/ratcheting 1/4" box wrench combo to remove some of the dash screws up against the windshield. Good Luck!
