'Datsun' sill plates now available at Motorsport Auto

Recommended Posts

While browsing vendor sites this morning, I discovered that MSA are now offering new replacement aluminum door sill plates (aka 'threshold plates') with the 'Datsun' logo.  Another 'unicorn' Z part now available for purchase, after years (decades?) of being NLA.  $179 for a pair.

With Distinctive Industries now making replacement door cards with OE-look vinyl trim (apparently in all colours -- not just black), that looks after two of the most-visible, but traditionally hardest-to-find, parts for a Z interior restoration.

Jay Atoka at www.jdm-car-parts.com has reproduced these for some time and is expanding his market through Motorsports.

He has an Ebay presence as well.

On a similar note---when are the true JIS cross head double wire metric hose clamps going to be reproduced? Everyone needs them and they are a real pain to clean up and re-plate.

There is a thread noting that Nissan itself may be bringing back vintage parts, but it is uncertain if the Z cars are included initially---and who knows if these clamps are a part of that. (if and when it happens)
