First big project finished. Replaced all the bushings, ball joints, idler arm, etc in the front end yesterday. Got a basic alignment on it but will need it done professionally. Makes a huge difference. Next is the rear end. Have the shocks but the leaf springs are sagging badly. Thinking of just adding a helper spring and calling it good.

 

Looking for window felts and door seals now. The old ones are all but gone. I founf a full set from Thailand for the seals but were freaking expensive at $129. Any other ideas? Are there any other Datsun models I could tweak that are close? I'm figuring the factory kept these parts at least close to identical

I still need to do the same for my wagon. The door seals are gonna be spendy since the ones from overseas is all I see available unless you get some universal ones.
Do it in a Datsun

Dropped $129 bones for 4 new door seals. Ugh. I found a part number for a window felt replacement on another thread in the forum but it was for one of teh trucks. Is it safe to assume its the same size felts across all datsun vehicles that year? I certainly hope so. Anyone have any insight on this?
