  1. These will need to have the ends cut off, possibly the top lip too, but they are the right size for the oval holes for the Cowl Tabs !!!!!!!! They also have lock in tabs. Woo-Hoo!I don't know what everyone else does about this problem, but this is what I came up with.The parts guy at the Nissan Dealership GAVE me these 4 and I had to order another off the net to get 5. Just Google this part # and you will find two places that have them for 95-98 cents, over 9 bucks shipping, HAPPY DATSUNING !!!!!!!

  3. It was some work, but I took the Tach I bought for My 69 Ghia in the 80's and made a front retaining bezel and a rear retaining ring. I actually have got compliments for it's design which I prefer myself. T10 Twist Light socket, 4 wire. Mine is still working since the 80's. https://www.ebay.com/i/133153060935?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=133153060935&targetid=809744315465&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9010822&poi=&campaignid=6470742440&mkgroupid=80119806400&rlsatarget=aud-298628318826:pla-809744315465&abcId=1141156&merchantid=119117942&gclid=CjwKCAiAwZTuBRAYEiwAcr67Oe_9HDcl6zH5KWWw1xErigtVEbXVV9hrZNjIpjtevOzk_GwaJo2WiRoCX-8QAvD_BwE
  4. I just have experienced this dilemma. My 1979 KCD has an 8 MM thread. My problem was the aftermarket brass knob adapter would not fit the shifter thread. I took it all to my machinist, and he used an adjustable die to cut the plating off the shifter thread. After 2 tweaks of the die, the shifter would fit the adapter threads nicely with that close of a tolerance. https://www.facebook.com/groups/211327615572473/?multi_permalinks=2723885377650005&notif_id=1573085438437511&notif_t=feedback_reaction_generic&ref=notif
  5. I tried using galvanized window screen and magnets but if you know anything about magnetism, the galvanized steel screen detracts the power of the magnet to adhere the screen to the cowl. "Super Flexible Super Magnetic Screen" would be a great invention for this application. So far I have found it does not exist.....yet........! I was at the hardware store and asked for vinyl window screen, they discontinued it, and I got several sq. ft. on a roll for 3 bucks. The Vinyl screen is more forgiving and much more easy to work with & cheap & will not rust. Using the NEOs the screen can be pulled taut and fastened with more NEOs. It looks good on top of the cowl and can be cut with scissors to fit, easily changed and I have a whole roll. 100 mm is almost 4 ", so I took a chance and ordered a few of these, maybe I will get them...... See how these work on one side....... https://www.ebay.com/itm/100x10x5mm-N50-Long-Cuboid-Block-Bar-Super-Strong-Rare-Earth-Neodymium-Magnets/392266132439?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

  7. One piece of the 18 x 24 would do both. You will need about 15 x 5 to cover https://www.pegasusautoracing.com/productselection.asp?Product=3640&msclkid=a5c79ec9b72e1254228cc363858d9a00&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Shopping&utm_term=1100404266839&utm_content=Ad group %231

  9. I think that is what I will do. Bigger NEO,s on top , smaller on bottom
  10. I do know that they make stainless expanded metal. I have not looked for any yet, but I had a small piece a long time ago. GE makes a silicone glue that cures fast and is tough. I have thought about using neodymium magnets on steel screen so they could be removed & cleaned or changed with ease. A few quarter sized ones have a lot of strength.
  11. It's not Bullshit, It's Cowl Crap
  12. I have to leave my console loose because of all leaves that get through the cowl slots and get into the heater squirrel cage and whine like a bitch !!!!!! Has anyone come up with a solution for this problem ? I don't have money flying out of my butt, so I have no covered area to park it in, not now, or for the last 32 yrs I have had it. Not Yet. Everywhere has Water Oak leaves, etc. that get into the heater core & fan box, and fresh air intakes in the dash through the cowl slots......... 32 yrs....... I had the cowl off and painted it just before my divorce in 1997. Cleaned it all out underneath & painted. I took the cowl off to repair some paint damage and the space under the cowl was full of debris. Leaves, Oak flowers, bugs ...on & on..... It was hand fulls of shit, organic debris from trees. I used hands, , leaf blower, compressed air and the water hose to finally get it all out WHAT TO DO ?????? ~~~~Screen, Hardware Cloth.... HELP !!!!!! I gotta stop this shit from getting in there. Thanks Guys
