  1. My 1977 620 KC is bone stock as it gets. And as much as I like minorly modified trucks, I have decided to do a 4x4 conversion. As already quacked at, I will "not" dump this project for cheap 6 months down the road, this 620 was my 10th birthday present. Last year (August or so) I dug it out of the weeds after a 6 year slumber and decided to start restoring it. Anyhow, I bought an '85 720 LB 4x4 for the frame/steering/4x4 assembly. To any and all who've ever attempted to make a 2wd Datsun a 4x4, be my guest and shoot a comment. Won't be starting on this until it's much warmer and drier out. I actually anticipate this to be a long but easy going swap. Never know though. Thanks.
  2. I payed $35-ish for mine but that might have just been for one side, can't remember now. I doubt it though, but been too busy and it's been too wet to do a dang thing on my 620... However, as of 2 days ago, I bought a donor 720 4x4 so it will become a 4x4 620. 😉
  3. Guess that's what I get for being a cheapskate again. Will I ever learn? Thanks for the info.
  4. Meh. It works, but I will need to glue it. It's not the stiff and slightly thicker type like the OEM is. So it doesn't like to stay put, especially when you roll the window down about half way, it will pull loose. If I fight it and glue it here and there (weather permitting at this frigging point) it would probably be adequate. I must confess though I didn't buy RockAuto, I bought from Amazon, for $32.89 or something. It was half price, and probably half as good, but on a budget and in the hands of a handyman, it's no problem.
  5. Got any in mind? Haven't found any on Ebay yet. https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/41894062_2659728877385938_5172269431983702016_o.jpg?_nc_cat=0&oh=51c2da247c506296002bff948946342e&oe=5C297FD9 https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/41863886_2659728904052602_3648007657714876416_o.jpg?_nc_cat=0&oh=6842a5f0ae2b2a2c2a2fd2897ad96535&oe=5C180028 Here's a pic of what I'm talking about. top of my driver's door.
  6. First post for me :) The wide weather strip along the inner edge of my doors are broken / shrunk and need to be replaced. My idea is to find a new roll of this stuff (hopefully not to expensive, since i've never seen anything like it before) and put some thinner strips on the door jamb so that it not only stops the water but also the wind. Even with my door shut completely, there was about a 1/8" gap between the strip and the jamb, which I imagine is going to be a little noisy (I've yet to have the truck plated and ready to run down the highway, but it's almost there). What have you guys done for this situation? Any constructive ideas are welcome.
