    Default Window seal quick fix?

    I recently got a 1979 2+2 and the previous owner lied about the condition and it was a special case so it was hard to say no to it, ever since I bought it I just keep finding more and more wrong with it. One of those is the window seals being dry rotted, I saw black dragon doesn't have it listed anymore for the s130. I checked z store and the site says Nissan has stopped supplying it, I found z source and they have it listed for about 500 or so. That's a lot more than I remembered earlier, so I figured maybe there is a temporary fix, but so far I can only find fixes for house windows. It's not a severe leak mostly when I wash it or if it's just sitting in the rain, but I haven't noticed anything while driving it yet. Does anyone know anything I can do until there's a new supplier? Or do I just have to keep checking the weather to determine which car to take?

    Which window are you talking about? If you just want a quick fix you can probably use silicone. I know that some of the outer hatch seals were hard to come by, but most of the rest should be available.

    Both drivers and passengers are dry rotted right around the top of the door/ bottom of the window area. I was trying to find pricing to see if I could replace it soon but since only one site has it for about 500 I'm gonna have to wait, unless by some odd chance I can find a decent used one nearby.

    If you are talking about the pieces that go around the door frames, I picked up some used Kia Sportage ones at the junk yard ($8.00) and they are perfect. Here is a writeup.

    I would've never thought about that, 8 is so much better than 500, I'm gonna have to keep my eyes out for some. Thanks for the help!

    It might work if you cut sections to match and piece together with 3M weatherstrip cement. Get one and see. If it works go back and get 3 more.
    if a little knowledge can make you dangerous, I'm a little dangerous
