Windshield header

Where can I get the DATSUN banner to go across the top of the windshield? Thought it would be easy to find but haven't sourced one yet. Hate to have a custom one plotted.

From what I understand, they are unobtainium...

Thinking of trying to make one.

I also consider creating one, I haven't seen any banner of DATSUN for a couple of months.

Do you have a Datsun to put it on?

Steve,

Do a search for a company called No Bad Days Racing. He is a guy I know named Mike Zois. He is a Porsche guy but he just did the side banner for me in red to match my interior. Excellent work...

Did that decal go on the inside of the glass or on the outside?

Can you show us a Picture? Then tell us if it was a decal, on the inside or outside of the glass?

FWIW,

Here I am again, wishing for repro period accessories. Seems to be a habit with me.

I'd love to find someone who could make me an old school mirrored tint band (mylar?) with 240Z lettered across the center, that sticks to the inside of the glass, as were so popular in the '70s and '80s. I've had no luck sourcing one so far.

I have one on my car that was put on around 1978, I remember purchasing it from a car parts catalog, I can not remember the name. Any one seem to remember of a popular car parts catalog from then?

The most popular went by the name "Bolder Tint". They were sold by every one and their dog, too. MG Mitten, JC Whitney, BAP/Geon, Beverly Hills Motoring, you name it.

I think it was TWEEKS, but I don't have any of those old catalogs. Tweeks had loads of Datsun logo'd stuff and add-ons for the car.

Otherwise, my first thought would be to call or visit a place that made vinyl signs, and maybe show them a sketch, or ask around a rice shops.

Arne,

If you find one please share the clues... I want one too

Paint should be done two weeks... Windshield 3 to 4 weeks.

I need to find the chrome retainer for the winshield

Thanks for the input everyone. It won't be hard to get a decal guy to make one of these, I am just amazed that no one is selling them anymore. They used to be everywhere.

Unfortunately, I don't think it's likely. I've been looking for the better part of 3 years.

I've talked to both the tint shops and the sign shops. The mirrored strip that sticks to the inside of the windshield is no problem. But no one seems to be able to do the logo on the inside anymore.

I have had the same experience as Arne in my inquiries regarding reproducing the "old school" style banner. So far, no joy.
