  1. From what I can tell, NISSAN only used this graphic/typeface for ONE transition year (1983), before updating to the more “square” style “S”, starting in 1984, that was used for a few years.The same typeface/font, however, was also used on the DATSUN logo on the light bars available for the 1982 model year...I have a 1983 4x4 and plan to have the light bar powder coated. I’d like to get an exact replica of the white decal made but have not been able to locate a good vector file of the correct logo. I made a tracing/rubbing so that I can get the scale 100% accurate and think that I’ve found some fonts that are reasonably close. Anyone on here know the name of the correct typeface? Or have a vector file of this logo? Alternatively, do you have a source for these exact decals?

  3. So either will be fine in hot, sunny SoCal?
  4. The only Redline GL-4 I can find is 75w-90... Its been pointed out that I want 80w-90. Find something other than Redline that’s 80w-90? Or run the 75w-90?
  5. Bumping this thread with some new transmission fluid questions... GL-4 is best for 4X4 with a 5-speed as well? I’m getting some solid CLUNKING and GRINDING when going into first and reverse... Syncros seem to be going and I’m sure a full transmission rebuild is in my future...but I’m hoping to buy some time with a fluid change. Any specific brands that I should be seeking out? I’ve heard that Swepco fluid is particularly good for addressing fussy synchros...
  6. I recently had my stock buckets reupholstered and the upholstery shop actually re-welded some broken parts of my frame and fully repaired them before recovering...so that might be an option for you too.
  7. I have a brand new, in the box OEM from Nissan and a new aftermarket grill...I figure it can’t hurt to first try to find an immaculate passenger side to match. If I don’t have any luck, I will clean the hell out of what I am currently running. No harm in looking though!
  8. I have an OEM driver side secured...Just need to find a NOS or immaculate passenger side to match it. Anyone holding?
  9. Thanks man. I reached out to him and I don’t think they are still available
  10. Thanks @datzenmike. Do you know of anywhere else the version of the logo with the rounded “S” appears? I found a lo-res version on a pic of a 83 Sentra badge...but I can’t locate a decent, clear pic.
  11. Thanks @datzenmike I posted on the WTB page you linked and will delete this thread...I just can't figure out how to do it!
  12. Maybe this font is a match?
  13. The same type was used on the DATSUN badged roll cages in 1982:
  14. I have a factory light bar on my 1983 4X4 and I am looking to have decals made for the "NISSAN" lettering on the side. Researching and trying to find the exact style used at the time, I have learned that the logo I need was a transition era version, ONLY used in 1983. For 1982, trucks still had "DATSUN" embossed across the tail gate... For 1983, a rounded "NISSAN" appeared: Then for 1984, the new version with a "squared off" space in the "S" appeared: Same for the side emblem badges. 1983 (rounded version): 1984 (squared off version): Does anybody have a Vector file of the 1983 version? Or can you direct me to a good (high contrast) image of it?
