Hey everyone. I have been lurking for a few years while looking for the right Datsun to settle down with. I found a lonely little 610 down in South Carolina (east coast guy here) in CL and took the plunge.

She’s a little rough around the edges but she has potential.

I will post pictures soon.

Welcome to Ratsun. Yes, for now, you will need a hosting site for your pictures... other than Photobucket.

Yeah. Apparently there’s not many 610 fans on this side of the country. Also, it was at a Nissan specialty shop. I am sure that Maxima will get some love eventually.

Ok, I'm confused.

 

I am in the process of stripping her down for rust remediation and framework, and I was planning on cutting out the windshield and rear glass.

 

Everything I have read and from what I can see, the 610 does not have a windshield rubber gasket. YET, the parts listing that (Lars) just posted clearly lists a "rubber dom" part number 72616-P0125.

 

As these appear to be UNFINDABLE/BUYABLE. What should I do?

 

Cut it out and reinstall with liberal amount of silicone sealant, or try to repair around current bedding?

 

HELP PLEASE! Thanks.

There's a special type of window glue that you use; don't just use any old silicone sealant. Also, there are some clips that hold the trim on.. they're not so easy to find anymore.

Understood. Thanks. I have been looking for the clips. Does anyone have a good supplier recommendation? Also, any suggestions on where to get the door window chrome fasteners?

Micro, it' been awhile pm me some time looking for passenger rear chrome 'J' trim.

 

 

Oh and those pieces of rubber are referred to as a 'dam'. They keep the windshield at the correct height for the trim and keep the sealant from making a mess of the dashboard. Pg 253 in the factory service manual, body section.

I used: "3M 08693 Auto Glass Urethane Windshield Adhesive Cartridge - 10.5 fl. oz."

You can get it on amazon for $18 .. one tube was plenty for a windshield, but probably not enough for both front and back.

Take car of your glass, i have a 73 2dr and am in the middle of not finding a new windshield or back quarter windows for my car. I would also condition your door seals with something, havent found alot of those either. As far as the window seal its just a thin little piece, looks more like foam tape.
