    240z Seat Strapping

    Bonzi Lon and fuzze, Do you have a close-up photo of the original Nissan fastener/rivet used to attach the original rubber seat strap to the seat clip? I am most interested in the head shape (positioned close to the seat foam) and the washer/crushed fastener end that is positioned on the opposite side. Thanks, Keith
  2. From my research all 1970-1978 had the protectors. The later model 240Z seat that had the reclining mechanism had a different shape to the clear plastic, but same gauge material. Keith
  3. The WSJ is very restrictive on access to their articles. Try this link: https://amedpost.com/when-datsun-met-corvette-sparks-flew/ Keith
  4. National attention from an authoritative publication. Enjoy reading the Wall Street Journal. Keith https://www.wsj.com/articles/when-datsun-met-corvette-sparks-flew-11569942100
  5. To clarify, my quest is for the 2-3/8" metal clips...not the fastener (rivet) or the hog ring. Thanks, Keith
  6. The clip material diameter is 1/8". It would require considerable time to create a jig to hold the steel rod immobile for the tight bends of the clips. Keith
  7. I need sixteen (16) Datsun 240Z seat strap metal clips. Does anyone have a resource to share? (Zeddsaver will have some stainless steel ones soon, but I prefer to continue on with my project in the next couple of weeks.) Thanks for the referrals. Keith
  8. I have a set available. See: 1972-1975 Fuel cap and ring (new plating) Keith

    1st gen seats

    Kats, I have obtained a sample of a light blue/green cloth. Do you still have the original cloth on your seat bottoms to confirm the color match? (If so, I would mail you a small sample for verification purposes.) Keith
  11. January 2019 orders completed. Thanks to all. I have to research a way to simply the production, these pieces require custom cutting and it is very difficult to make all precise cuts. Keith

    Seat restoration

    Please see the classified if you are interested in a set of the reproduction clear vinyl seat protectors. Keith
  13. Since these clear vinyl seat protectors are no longer available from Nissan, nor are reproductions available from existing fabricators, I sourced a large quantity of clear vinyl material to fabricate reproductions. These are for the 1969-1971 seats that do not have the recline mechanism. Set of eight (8) as shown in photo, (plus close-up photo) Material is same gauge/thickness as original Photos show: Set of four (4) original, aged and yellowed clear vinyl seat protectors and set of four (4) reproduction clear vinyl seat protectors. . Set of eight (8) reproduction clear vinyl seat protectors - what you would receive upon ordering. The pricing is $38.00 shipped to a CONUS address. Shipping will be via FedEx Express Saver, insured, with tracking. If you are interested in a set, please PM me your full name, mailing address and Paypal address. I will then send you an invoice. Note, these are time consuming to produce. Therefore, I will only send the invoice when the set is available for shipment, maximum 1 week timeframe Thanks, Keith
  14. Machined a punch to stamp the holes in the seat clear vinyl protectors on 12/31/18.....closing out the year working on the Z.
