I see the hatch seal for sale but not the glass seal.
The seals are actually salvageable without destroying a hatch if they are in good shape and still pliable. If the seals are old and crusty they wont be pliable enough to use with your glass anyway. So the way i see it, if you cant pull the seal out of another vehicle intact you didnt want it anyway. Black dragon lists new seals for that model pretty cheap actually: http://www.blackdrag...ures/z/zrh3.htm

Have your hatch painted also and store it until new rubber is available.
I have a nice hatch no wiper with glass and trim i would sell for 100 bucks no rust. Come get it.

Yup i see it now, major bummer. BGM has the best plan i think. My car was painted in the 90's with the rubber in place (ive since repainted) and while i wouldnt choose to do that the paint job didnt look terrible around the seals, its not a bad option
This is what i would do. Buy another hatch with glass have the new one painted and installed without pulling the glass.

I get parts from them all the time. The guy orders stuff from Nissan Japan and claims he can get just about anything. Super nice people
Not a bad idea. I found a thread from last March that a company called Z specialties was doing R&D for the window gaskets. I gave them a call and spoke to a very nice young lady who is going to talk to "the powers that be" and get back to me to let me know where they are on that.

London Ontario. He was wanting the hatch i had but didn't act fast enough. He said he had someone coming
through Detroit and he might call. Just a few hours after the sale someone called on his behalf about the hatch.
And i told them sorry it is sold. He didn't sound happy. If someone can help contact Datsy280zx

Thanks for the interest.
