theres still TONS of stuff you can get brand new for the S-Chassis. i suggest everyone who wants a new gas tank email Nissan via their website contact form and start requesting it. theyve been bringing A LOT of parts back from the dead lately... case in point, nissan FINALLY made a HUGE run of OEM S13 sun roof weather stripping. it was discontinued for over a decade. the ONLY way you could get it was to buy a new sun roof and that was $900. well, nissan got off their butts and made more.

im sure that a problem existing WORLD WIDE would get them off their asses to make more given the gas tank is a VERY important part of the car and without a sealed tank, no S14 or S15 will pass emissions. get enough people emailing about it, they will do something.

This makes sense considering people are still buying used s chassis and they can't even sell their new line of cars

Somebody with a couple hours to kill should look up all the fuel tank dimensions for every car ever made and find one that is compatible.

There has to be one in something that will fit nicely. There just has to

fuel tank repair thread I found
https://zilvia.net/f/showthread.php?t=644858


Okay, I did my 5 minutes of research:






If everybody does 5 minutes of research it should only take 12,000 members 5 minutes each to do 1000 hours of research, which should just about do it...

allllriiiight!!! so excited.

im being sarcastic, because lately parts prices have gotten very unrealistic. nissan is not the only manufacturer to blame. to be honest, all the manufacturers have hiked prices up so much that its making build and/or restoring cars a fucking nightmare.

i really dont understand it nor do i think any manufacturer has justification in these price hikes. NISSAN motorsports in particular can eat a big bag of dicks for the way they've inflated all of their prices for JDM parts. not only do they not give you ANY lead time on how long these parts will take to arrive, then they rape you on pricing.

when this happens, i'm all in for (quality) aftermarket solutions.

working on a source.

This is similar to the other thread about OEM genuine S13 Silvia fenders, let's see if any of the suppliers can come through on this.

is anyone actually serious about buying brand new genuine OEM fuel tanks?

seems like I can order it, but 1) it's $550+, and 2) 180+ days out.

will order one to see if it actually comes in, but buyer beware.

Are you actually going to order one? Or did you mean you'd order one if someone wanted it.

I ordered one to see if it can be fulfilled... meaning if I get it in 6 months, it may be same or higher price than what I was quoted because the lead time is so long.

6 months is enough time for the global economy to crash.

Did you order it online or at the dealership? Mine just bit the dust tonight.

I'm sending my girlfriend to work Monday with the part number to see if the parts guys can give me any details on if any are left in the country and how may there may be, if any.

I went ahead and sent in a customer affairs email. What's it going to hurt?

Oh yeah, still looking for the parts mentioned in my signature.....

I'm interested in the outcome of this. I'm sure you won't leak your source of the overseas parts? I've never ordered any parts from overseas vendors that didn't come from a site like eBay. I'd love to learn YAJ but that is a whole 'nother topic.

I just went and picked up a used tank from a local (2 hours away) yard that actually had a S14. It looks good with no staining indicating a fuel leak. I am going to use that tank while I plastic weld my original and give that one a go once more to see how it holds up.

I guess let me be more specific...

like the other thread about genuine S13 Silvia fenders, I'm ordering to see if it can be fulfilled. If it can, I'm stocking a few to resell.

There's really not a secret to this. If someone wants genuine parts, either 1) it's available via the proper channels in North America (or discontinued via that same channel), or 2) it's available in another territory overseas (or discontinued via that same channel). Parts inquiry are fairly straightforward, if it's not listed as EOL you can definitely order it, fulfillment is entirely another story.

Other regions may have parts makers producing them locally and sold as "genuine OEM Nissan", so for all intents and purposes it's identical to what you want (except it may be made in India or Malaysia or Chile or France)... but like I said, 6+ months wait.

That's interesting.

I've worked the shop side of dealers for 12 years, and had plenty of times where the parts department said it was discontinued and no longer available to order since there was none in the U.S. When they tried to order, the next days report would show the part order cancelled (happened plenty of times with ordering MR2 parts).

If the part showed 'National Backorder' status then they could order it but like you said, it could be six+ months. I never had an overseas option. I wonder if that's a specific dealer thing? I've never had a dealer be able to order overseas.

At this point, I've owned this car 12 years so getting the new proper parts to keep it going and able to restore the thing a bit would be so nice. What's another 6+months after owning it this long?

Ordering overseas means that I am trying to bring it in gray market.
