  1. I ordered on from “new Datsun parts.com” fit fine for me. Try them maybe. -Pidge
  2. Linkage to the shifter perhaps?

    “Prime” name brand perhaps. Don’t know if they are around anymore, but they use to have something similar back in the day. -Pidge

    Man those seats look good so far. Like it man 👍🏼
  6. That looks clean man. Your gonna use the stock glass and bezel as well? -Pidge
  7. $600 CDN. First time going down this rabbit hole so I’m no sure if that’s good or not. I thought it was a fair price and I’m happy with the results. -Pidge
  8. I’m thrilled, thanks guys for the positive feedback. I wanted to keep the stock look. The shop that did the work has been around for 40+ years I’m told....the green material is from a old roll they had. It’s apparently 1960 Chevy green. The grey is more modern material. edit: I upload my pics from my iPhone. Don’t know why they twist all the time. Apologize for that. -Pidge
  9. Got the bench back and put in today. Just wanted to share with the community. I’m happy and think it came out great looking. -Pidge
  10. Hey fellas, Ive recently pulled off the valve cover to clean the mess of oil that’s been leaking from around the gasket area and to give the cover a fresh look. Ive gone on “New Datsun Parts” to order a gasket, but it comes with an complete gasket kit. There’s no stock right now and buddy says he’s waiting on some more to come in. I don't need a complete kit right now. I’ve tried searching around and that’s the only place I’ve found beside some place in Australia that I’m sure will kick my butt in shipping. Have any you guys made your own outta cork? If so what thickness did you go with? The one I pulled off was rock hard. It looked about 3/16” but that was compressed and old. The oil fill cover gasket is in pretty bad shape as well, but not as bad as the valve cover it’s self. I’ve used the black permatex stuff before on diff covers, followed the directions and have had zero leaks. What would you guys suggest is best to do? Buy a sheet of cork, some permatex, or?? Thanks, Pidge

  13. And all apologies for the sideways pics. If a mod can fix then you have my blessing. Thanks fellas!! -Pidge
  14. Interesting. Thank you very much. Didn’t know that. -Pidge
