So I added up all the receipts I've saved over the years for this car today.

Total: $36,000

That includes the over $25,000 for the bodywork/paint.

It does NOT include the purchase price of the car (not much) or all the extra things I didn't keep receipts for (Paper towels, disposable gloves, gas money for all things related, etc.).

Yeah... You shouldn't have done that... :P

I'm trying my best to never do that. Over the years I know I've spent $10k+ on my 1200. That's about half finished. :|

Also, I must say, I had no idea the paint/bodywork costs that much, but it looks like they did a top notch job. From the pics, it looks absolutely perfect. :tu: :mrgreen:

Surprise Update:

Got a early B-day present, some door/window edge trim seal (bulb seal, molding, whatever you want to call it) from Amazon.com. $35 for 20 feet, not bad. Still need another one for the driver side door:

I tried to install the side rear windows, but I realized I filled the holes for the hinge :(

Its also a pain in the ass to install these windows without chipping the paint! Its not as easy as it looks.

As for the door windows, I still need some window channel felt in order to install the frames. And of course the trunk seal too.

This is the one I got: http://www.amazon.com/CRL-Oversize-Bulb ... 26&sr=8-36

It was actually a bit to wide for attaching to the edge, I'd recommend getting a smaller size unless you want to go through the whole thing and squeeze it down a bit like I did :p

Just search Amazon for "bulb seal" for more.

Glad seeing this one is still going. Any ideas when you will be able to try and start her again?

Alright folks, I'm having issues installing the rear side windows, one of my levers is broken and I'm concerned the non-broken one is about to break. They are made of REALLY brittle plastic and I'm concerned, so I'd like to replace them.

Plus, I accidentally filled the holes for them at some point, so the holes for these are gone. Making new holes for different versions of these would be OK since I don't have any holes right now. Heck, I'm not even sure what to call these, anyone know the technical name?

FYI, I pulled some off of a later model Loyale, but they won't work. Way too different.

I'm sure you can find something similar from any same vintage japanese car that had pop out windows. Datsun would probably be the easiest to find.

Datsun 510 latch is very similar. And occasionally NOS ones pop up for sale. :tu:

And it's all metal. :wink:

Oooh, that does look simular. And nice metal too.

But DAMN thats pricey! :|

BTW, I think the 510 has similar window runners (window channel felt for what the door windows go up/down on). Know any cheap sources for that?

One more thing since I know folks here have experience with this... The triangle glass for the side windows, the "vent" glass... Is there a trick to reinstalling it back into the frame? I have everything ready to go and got the new extrusion for installation, but its just damn hard to squeeze them back in and I don't want to break the glass. Any tips?

Sadly, that's cheap. I've seen the OEM ones fetch $75-100 on ebay.

JC Whitney? It's somewhat generic stuff. $13 for an 8ft roll.

Lots and lots of grease. :P

Put some in my 1200 a few years ago and that was the only solution.

Got the vent windows installed into their frames, and in turn installed into the door frames :)

It took a bit more silicone spray than I used, but they eventually went in nice and smooth once I figured out to get the bottom in before the longer side.

Won't install the full frames of course until I get the window felt...

Well I looked again at those Datsun latches, and I'm thinking they won't work.

Comparing them to my latches and the hole locations on the car, the distance between the first hole and where the latch attaches to the window frame is pretty much as close as it can be, and its about 2".

The Datsun latches on the other hand appear to be much closer to the first bolt hole.

Sounds like it's time to start junkyard shopping... :mrgreen:

I'll see if I can get you some pics of 1200 latches, B210 latches, and 210 latches to see if any of those are any closer. :tu:

Do you know if your FF1 latches would be the same, or similar as my coupe latches? If so, I have a 1200 here I can physically check along with an early Accord and Corolla.
