Re: Windshield

Well listen to this...that Chinese windshield that I had in a carton in the basement and was getting ready to install...the one that looked un laminated? It wasn't laminated, it was a rear window! And a genuine Nissan one too! My existing rear window was badly scratched anyway so I installed the re...

Re: Windshield

I. Picked up a new chinese made windshield at Crystal Autoglass here in Calgary last fall for $250-ish. $350 for clearplex sounds like a bit of a profit maker shall we say. Wonder how bugs, dirt, wiper motion etc affect wear. Sure can't scrap ice or snow off it! Maybe they don't stick to this stuff...

Re: Windshield

Regarding everyones issues with pitting on the thinner chinese windshields there are several options. The first is Clearplex, an optically clear film applied to the outside of the windows. Not cheap and for daily drivers would probably have to be replaced in a few years. The next is Diamon-fusion, a...

Re: Windshield

Thanks, thats the info i was looking for. My chinese one is thinner to be sure. I realize they have to be laminated and I havent pulled it from the carton yet, just peeked at two corners and couldn't definitively see a lamination line however, if the glass was edge ground after lamination it could b...

Windshield

The windshield that came out of my 510 4 dr is scratched badly with wiper marks. I have what looks like an un-laminated Chinese knockoff that I don't trust. I see rockauto lists one in the US. Does anyone know anything about them? Are they good quality laminated? Thickness? Anyone ordered one recent...

Re: Mike Kay's Passing - Datsunland Socal

I'm sorry to hear that he passed. I bought a full kit from him last year and he had told me he was ill. On another note, has anyone investigated taking over his business? I'm interested to find out if his widow would turn over the business or his suppliers so we can continue a weatherstripping suppl...

Re: Weatherstrip adhesive

I tried some Autobody wash prep, but I'll try your suggestion. If there is still mold release on the rubber that makes sense, this adhesive is supposed to be the right stuff to use

Weatherstrip adhesive

Just started installing my Datsunlandsocal rubber pieces. Having a problem with adhesive. What have you all used? What works? I've got permatex super weatherstrip adhesive and it doesn't seem to stick too well to the rubber pieces. According to the directions, I apply a thin coat to both the piece, ...

Mounting r180, question

Putting in my r180 LSD diff. Need to know where the c-shaped metal spacers are placed. Between the diff and the crossmember? There are 4. Any help would be appreciated, little hard to tell by the exploded view in the manual.

All the fasteners, brackets etc that must be sandblasted, primed, and painted etc. no s...
