    These are not OEM but are molded from an OEM part and a casting made. Mine seem to mysteriously disappear whenever I have the dash taken apart with my mechanic and I don't like the look of the metal nut so I made a mold of another plastic one I had and made some castings. I know this works with a Z as I pulled a dimmer switch from a Z to use on my 210. I don't know if they're compatible with any other models than these two. The dimmer switch part number is 25282-H9100 so if you have that one I'm going to say this will work. I can make it black or I can leave it the resin color if you prefer to paint to another color. Price is $8 which includes shipping. If you want more than one let me know and I'll give you an updated price. Edit: I was just told these also work with the 1979-1986 Datsun/Nissan 720 pickups

    Datsun 210 Gas Door Latch Catch

    These are not OEM but are molded from an OEM part and a casting made. Mine broke some time ago and I was able to pull one from a junkyard without breaking it (not easy to do) and cast up a new one for myself. This clip receives the pin that is on your gas door. First picture shows placement and second picture are the castings. I can make it black or I can leave it the resin color if you prefer to paint to another color. Price is $8 which includes shipping. If you want more than one let me know and I'll give you an updated price.

    210's UNITE!!!!!!!!!

    I'm not sure I'd attempt the instrument cluster. At this point I'm just thinking the steering column cover and under dash pieces. Maybe after I figure out how well those pieces mold up I'll attempt that. Good to know someone would be interested though. Thanks for speaking up.

    Datsun 210 Quarter Panel Emblems

    I think I messed up the original ad. It isn't completed. I think that means sold out? Posting again cause I don't see how to remove the other one. So I'm making these again. There will be flaws (only noticeable up close) since these are castings made from an original 30+ year old emblem. These will not have the pins in the back to push into the fender. You will need to use double stick tape which I actually am using on mine right now. I recommend the 3M brand which you can get at Autozone. It's easy to remove by running dental floss under it and the tape will peel right off without damage to the emblem or fender. I also recommend getting a Krylon silver leafing pen. I used this to paint the lettering and if you ever need to do touchups you'll be using the same thing. If you are interested in a set I'm selling for $25 plus $7.20 flat rate shipping. If you're interested or have questions let me know.

    210's UNITE!!!!!!!!!

    Ok my 210 brothers (and sisters if you're out there) I'm starting to make emblems again. Still messing around with the molding material. It's working my last nerve but I'm trying some new stuff. Fingers crossed. I made a mold of the dimmer switch nut which came out quite nice. Even the threads work. I've also made some of the gas door latch catches cause I was being asked for some. I am thinking of molding up the undertrim pieces as I'd like to have extras in case of. If any of you would be interested let me know. That'll put the fire under my bum to go ahead with it. I am also thinking of doing the steering column cover and the piece that goes around the ignition key since those always disintegrate. If these pieces interest anyone let me know here. I haven't gotten around to it yet but I was going to post the gas door latch catches and dimmer switch nuts in the classified. I'll have to figure out shipping and I'll post.

    Just got Stanley registered. I still have a few things to do but what would've held it up the most is done....I think. Hopefully getting my fender on doesn't become a thing. Got some other odds and ends to put on but I've got 6 weeks to make it happen. Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
  8. Don't have a Spinal Tap Stonehenge moment.
  9. I've figured out to sort my pictures. I also just figured out how to move them around without having to completely delete and start over if you accidentally set an album to public. App is still shit. My albums do not show up at all. Turning out lights don't always work. The dark don't help put some weight on somebody that is so skinny you get stabbed by a pelvic bone. For God's sake! Eat something!
  10. 40-50s pinup girls were beautiful. I’m not sure who decided being a stick figure was ideal other than the fashion industry that is run by gay men who don’t like women and want their models to look like 12 year old boys.
  11. Yes but how do you really feel? 🙂 I never experienced too many problems. Their app is great. Imgur isn’t horrible but their app sucks donkey balls.
  12. Cool! So maybe Photobucket has stopped holding our images hostage. Imgur is nice if you’re using a desktop but the app is complete shit.
  13. And now I kinda want one Someone let me know if you can't see the image. I was testing it from Photobucket again to see if they changed their evil ways.
  14. I've ordered stuff from Saad before and never had a problem. Too bad this shipping issue is affecting his business. At least he's attempting to make it right.
