    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
  2. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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.

    Seat restoration

    This project is getting more involved. One of the rubber guards that protects the seat track from dust/debris was torn. Original on the right, replacement on the left. Too many hours on the seat project!!! Keith

    Zup, I have not competed the seat restoration as I am awaiting the seat guards from 240zrubberparts.com. I don't have an update on the "Japan Imperial Army Green" paint yet. Keith

    hiyabrad, 7tooZ, Zup, I am going to produce sets (8 pieces to a set) of the seat protectors for the 1969-1970 seats in mid-January 2019. The pricing will be: $38.00 for the first set, $30.00 for additional sets mailed to the same address. Shipping will be via FedEx Express Saver, insured, with tracking. Once I have fabricated some sets I will create a new post in the Classifieds offering them. Thanks to all. Keith

    Seat restoration

    DavidF, The purpose of the plastic is to avoid moisture that is trapped in the seat foam and vinyl to wick against the metal brackets. As you found when you removed the seat covers, the metal frame and shell had surface rust, an indication of prior moisture exposure. Unless you are an original owner of your 240Z and can attest that the seat covers were not previously removed by a prior owner, I think is it save to assume that some of your protectors were damaged and discarded. Zeddsaver has the 1972-1978 style on their website. Keith
