Careless

Order of base interior parts

Recommended Posts

Back at this topic again.

I'll update the build thread of the car after I finish some more interior stuff, but I was wondering if anyone has opinions on who makes the best upper vinyl pieces around the headliner, as well as the side-sill vinyl.

the NOS side sill ones I have are N4200 series parts and there are some holes and slots that are for later models, not early 70s ones.

The upper pieces... thought I had them.. but I don't.

headliner is about to go in, i gots one of those...

 

Any recommendations? I was thinking Classic Datsun...

I'm in a very similar situation to Careless: trying to restore a 1970 Z to close-to-factory.

Careless, what did you do for the template for the Jute? I am going to order a 54" roll from the TRF site. 

Two other questions: 

  1. Does anyone have a picture of what the steel spring attachments look like, and how they attach to the floor behind the seats? A lot of "work" happened to the interior of my Z, I can't really trust anything I see in it. 
  2. Did i understand right that the male snaps for the front are attached directly to the firewall insulation part? (mine wasn't original, and didn't have snaps, was all re-done by some upholstery shop). Any pictures of that? I have to secure a new firewall insulation kit anyway, and get put snaps on it. Seems like squishy material to have snaps pull on it, but maybe not a lot of tension happens.

nevermind question #2 up there, I found the right thread, with lots of pictures and info:

And to complete the nevermind bit, here is info on the metal carpet clips:

The forum post has a clipping of the service bulletin. It looks to me like they were not there for 1970s Zs, but probably needed them, hence the change. I would guess some folks' dealers installed them for them after the fact.

And, finally, to REALLY complete it, here is a 10-year thread with a full discussion of the jute, and, on page 5, a PDF you can download with a 1970-71 Jute pattern.
