Where did you score the new king cab seals ? Were they the ones for the trim or no trim ? Thanks in advance.

Hey 420n620 , I met you back n the day at I think canby, remember??like 2010 lol.. anyway got the seals from vintage rubber and they do not accept the chrome trim.. very nice seals tho... I'd like to keep chrome but can't get the seals and I already did the front and rear window seals so I'm taking all the chrome trim off... Anyway the seals I think were like 80 bucks shipped .. honestly I can't remember...

Looks like a sweet find even if the engine wasn't as advertised.  Looking forward to seeing how creative you get with it ;-}

Got any ideas? I'm thinking for something to do a walk thru.. I could always weld it back in if I change mind.. I had a few kc walk thu"s and kinda want one

So I did the roof first and thought I'd work my way down for fine tuning of body work and forgot what I was doing and sprayed the whole thing.. uggg it's so bright I can't even stare at it... Should be a fun time sanding it back off... So I'm going to take break and drive it for a bit B4 I go round two.. but I'll get interior in for test fit...

You mean cut a pass through from cab to bed, join the cab and bed, and then meld in a bed cap?  Add a good shag carpet kit, maybe hang a small disco ball?  That sounds fun.  Kinda like High School ;-}  You could replace the grill with a big cheshire cat grin.  Add electroluminescent wire between the teeth for effect.  People will wonder what's going on in the back of that truck....

it was 2010, you still had your red 510 ka at Canby. Think you sold it shortly after that.   

I checked Vintage Rubber site and they are $90. They don't offer the 1/4 cab seals with the trim but that's ok, my 78 doesn't have the trim. How are the corners laying down ? Been wondering if the corners are molded or the seal is just a straight seal (glued ends together) and they stretch around the corners. In time the corners seem to want to crack from shrinkage / age.  🤔

Hey, you still have them lighten up Datsun glasses ? Those were pretty cool. Went to look on DMT but couldn't locate the thread.
