Hello all,

 

these 620 vent window rubber part numbers are:

 

LH  Part # : P411-5202
 
RH Part # : P411-5201
 
does anyone know if these will fit a 411?
 
Thanks,
Ken

They don't fit a 521 and probably won't fit a 410/411 either...

No.  The 521 window is taller than the 410 or 411.  This makes the 521 vent rubber taller with a sharp upper corner, not a rounded upper corner like the 410 / 411 unit.

Thanks,

520 or 521 vent window rubber, sharp X-acto knife, rubber cement and the existing vent window [to hold everything in correct alignment] well lubricated to prevent cement sticking and you might have a functional seal.  The area around the window lock just might be very tricky.

Good thing 521 wing window seals grow on trees...

I have what well may be the only authentic replacement 411 right and left hand set of wing window rubber seals. In original Datsun parts sealed packages!  I refreshed my RL411 many years ago and noted scarce parts.  I ordered the wing window seals for future  use like when I tore the doors apart to replace the sliding glass and lower glass weather strips.  I have not yet gotten around to them!  BUT! I am not going to give up what may well be the sole surviving 410 / 411 set of original wing window weather seals in factory packging. 

 

If it would make any sense, I can post the Datsun part numbers.

 

BTW, you can silence window rattle by slipping cardboard match stick between the window felt and the steel doors.  Ask me how I know!  You can't keep a 50 year old vehicle going without learning some off the book work arounds!

But you/I cannot get  the time to open up the doors and install them.  I am a lazy fabricator of the parts that I have squirreled away,

Can I get some seeds so I can plant a 521 wing window rubber tree in my yard?

You have access to creating molds for rubber parts. Cool! I was thinking of getting a 3D printer for remanufacturing other hard to find parts.

I would absolutely demand seeing the process, facility, and proprietor of the proposed reproduction site before I would even consider these No Longer Available and desirable parts out of my custody !  I will not risk  a future total as built restoration of my original RL411 on some vague "I can get them reproduced" statement !  Back yard or amateur  attempts just won't cut it.  Not that I don't trust your desires and wants, but I have an irreplaceable pair of parts.  Example, what mix and durometer of rubber would you specify?

 

Not being totally negative but I must preserve my irreplaceable parts!

I will have to dig into my rare parts stash to get the part numbers.  They are in the bottom of my "To Do"  box.  Please bear with me, I have a lot on my to do list, like 2 weddings in the family.
