    The stretch test is complete and both regular Super Glue and loctite 406 worked great. There should be no problem gluing the grommet back together. Just don't get the glue on your fingers because you will be glued to the grommet.

    I am working on a custom set of insulators for 240z's with a over sized return line, which will be the same size as the main fuel line.

    any other interest in these custom insulators? I have to machine, mold and cast the new custom insulators. The price will be more than what the regular set of insulators are and that is $150.



    also working on the engine bay light lens and the rubber gasket plus the wiper bottle motor rubber mounting insulator.

    Datsun 240z rubber grommets & parts is making some really awesome parts, I really appreciate it and I am sure they will go a long way to help us get our cars looking original as possible.

    If you are going to get your car judged at a ZCCA ZCON event these parts will help you very much.

    Thanks,
    I never noticed how many little rubber parts there is on a 240z until I started reproducing them for my restoration.

    I agree with Montezuma---totally awesome---could not be better!

    These small parts are very important to anyone wanting to truly restore their car and many have been unobtainable until now!

    Steve--
    Can you reproduce the rubber gasketing for the air cleaner housing. They look to me to be more like an extrusion, but I have no idea really, and I don't know the full extent of your production capabilities. No one offers these and most anyone restoring/repainting or powdercoating their air cleaner needs them.
    Maybe you have contacts that can if you can't??

    Also, I must mention the wiper linkage boot again---I need at least three.

    Thanks for all that you have done!

    Jim, wiper linkage boot is still in my plan. I will have to take my wiper assembly apart to get a sample for the mold, I am trying to put my car back together not take it apart again.

    The rubber gaskets for the air cleaner housing is too big of an item for my pressure pot, I have a 40 liter pressure pot.

    Hi Steve,

    They look a lot better than the stuff you can buy at MSA. I thunk they just use the fuel lid rubber which is not the same.
    Your attention to detail is faultless.

    Now when are you going to start restoring a 280 Then I wont have to bother making all that stuff.
    My shopping list is getting bigger. I am planning on ordering some stuff, but I want to order everything at once to reduce the shipping.

    Thanks Chas, let me know when you would like to order, I will give a discount on a multi item order.

    Jim. D aka Zup the wiper linkage boot is now back off the car and getting ready for reproduction. Should be done in a week or so.

    I love this thread and evertime I see a post by Nix I wonder what he has made now

    Steve, I'll be ordering but I put my 69 resto on hold until I finish the 77.

    I am working on these items.
    - All 4 of the vent hose seals in rear hatch area with correct look, not just some grommets that fit the holes.
    - The license plate light wire grommet, even new units do not come with the grommet.
    - Hand throttle knob for 70-71.
    - Heater hose grommets on the fire wall.

    Thought you might like to see a few of your parts on a car (Choke grommet,red check valve isolator and early hood bumpers). Very happy with the quality and fit of everything so far.

    70-71 console choke plate, a reproduction of the best one I could find, after a long search. Only a few minor dings on the plate but very nice.

    I have been working on a few other rare items.

    69 and early 70 plastic hood inspection clips, this is a sample of the smaller version from a 69 240z. I am working on testing the correct plastic type for this application, so they will not break once in use.

    Update: 69 and early 70 inspection clips. I tested the clips and after 200 open and close tests, the clips did not break. These are available in a clear amber color. The Black was only a test sample.

    I also have the clips in clear, these are just a little more rigid than the amber clips.
    As you can see on the picture that I tested these also and they did not break after 100 open and closes. I will be offering these as a set of 4 clips, 2 amber and 2 clear.

    I will be doing more testing on the clips before I put them up for sale on website.

    I have been working on a few new items, one is the rubber seal for the antenna to rear quarter panel.
    The second item, which is still in the development stage, is the voltage regulator 6 prong connector protective boot, this one is gone 99% of the time. Picture of new boot coming later this week.

    I'm working on a large list for you. A lot of these parts transfer over to the 280. How is your car coming along?

    Default Some Items I would like to see you reproduce...

    Handbrake handle and pushbutton. These were never available separately and since NOS handbrakes are NLA we are forced to restore the originals. Unfortunately, these parts are destroyed during their removal.

    Early 240Z wiper motor cover. Before there was the bag Nissan used a plastic cover.

    Speedometer cable and hood opener cable grommet. The very early 240Zs lacked a separate hole in the firewall for the hood opener cable, so Nissan combined it with the speedo cable.

    I have looked at the handbrake and it seems that the rubber is a different type than the urethane I use. I could do the Speedometer cable and hood opener cable grommet, I would just need a sample for correct measurements. I would also need a good sample of the Early 240Z wiper motor cover.

    Ok let me know when ready to order. Not much work on the car over the summer, making and selling parts takes up all my extra time. I have had over 16000 hits on the website and have filled over 100+ orders all over the world, thanks to all who have ordered parts from me.
