Hi Bullit,
Thanks, man. I just found it yesterday. The shop was very deep in Batu Pahat at Sri Gading area. I managed to drop by after a trip to Singapore for work. The are was quite interesting as I saw a Morris Minor pick up truck, Triumph Spitfire, some sort of big-ass Holden, and a Mini Countryman as I was driving along the Batu Pahat main road.
The shop attendant said the parts have been there since he started there 30 years ago. He was even planning to throw them out soon. Unfortunately it was not complete. It is missing the badges and I only got a right hand light cluster. The left hand light assembly and badges still elude me.
Good thing is that I actually got 2 panels. One had only the Skyline script but without the other square badge. It did come with interesting stickers though. :D

Some pics for anyone who could give advice or offer to sell me some parts to complete it.

Chrome was heavily oxidized

Skyline badge was also kind of messed up with the green oxide all over.

Well they are oxidized too but with some heavy polishing they come out good again

Hi notajncr,
I just emailed whatever email link I could find on their website. I guess no one bothered to answer it because it was in English.
THanks for the offer but I think I will pass for the moment. I got to pay for other parts coming in and also doing up the engine. I really appreciate the offer though.

Hi all,
Been looking online and can only find rubber kits from Rarepares and americanautos.com.au. There is no mention for window rubber kits. Any idea where I can get the rest? They only list the following in their kit which is identical,

RDS3001 SEAL DOOR COUPE LOWER KIT 2.00 Yes (which part is this???)
RGDSL GLASS DIVIDER SEAL LHS 1.00 Yes
RGDSR GLASS DIVIDER SEAL RHS 1.00 Yes
RBS0016 BOOT SEAL,GEMINI& COUPE,MAZDA,CHRYSL 1.00 Yes
WS500 K&H WINDSCREEN SEALER 1.00 Yes (this is not the rubber, right?)
RRRS301 SEAL DOOR ROOF RAIL L/H 1.00 Yes
RRRS302 SEAL DOOR ROOF RAIL R/H 1.00 Yes

I remember someone telling me that the rubber is reproduced in Thailand even for the ones that are being sold in Australia and Japan. Any leads on this? Thanks.

I know Peter Jackson's old rubber and Clarke rubber in Australia sell a wide range of weather strip seals and various rubbers.

Peter Jacksons is in St Mary's in Sydney last time I went (years ago). I believe Clarke Rubber is a similar setup. You'll need to send someone over here with a sample and Im sure they have something very close if not the exactly the same in stock. Their range is pretty big last time I went.

Hi Dan. Hope you can restore this old 240K soon. Don't ever give up. I'll help you if I can! 8)

Found some RS Watanabe info @ http://www.rs-watanabe.co.jp/index2.htm

Gunmetal 8-spoke RS Watanabes are the best IMHO!
Image

KPGC110
PCD 114.3-4

MATCH
F: R 14-80 -6 R: R 14-85 -13

SIZE UP
F: R 15-80 ±0 R: R 15-85 -6
F: R 16-80 ±0 R: R 16-85 -6

I think this means your matching wheels are PCD114.3 RS Watanabes R14 8" Offset -6 in front and R14 8.5" Offset -13 at the rear. The step up ones should be read in the same way I guess.

I am quoting this from Glomerus' thread. Didn't want to hijack it with my postings.

Hi Kyteler,
The posts on the C110 sedan was really cool. However I noticed that it was mainly on the 4 door sedan. I hope you don't mind but would it be possible to also include pics the Hardtop (2-door coupe) body section of the parts manual. I am planning to strip my 240K Hardtop however I am concerned as I have not sourced any body rubber yet. I am hoping that the part numbers would be a help to source the parts.

I know it is troublesome to take photos page by page however it would be very helpful if you could. Is anyone else selling the parts manual? I would be more than willing to purchase it of possible.

How do you guys change the window/door rubber on the 240K anyway? I am sure there are shops out there selling them. I just can't find it on the net.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Dan, I've just ordered the "Nissan 240K Repair Manual" from Pitstop Books in Oz and will pass it to you as soon as I get it.

Good luck with the restoration! Just let me have a ride please, when you're done? :tu:

Thanks, Scud, but I am still looking for the parts manual. Before stripping the car to pieces, I got to make sure I have enough parts to put it back together again. Thats why I want to get the rubber parts sorted out first. I am sure it is probably hard like rock right now.

Hi Glomerus,
I did PM Kyteler and he replied soon after. Taking photos of the manual is really time consuming. I don't know if I could do it myself!!! Hopefully I could get the relevant pages from him when he finds the free time. Thanks for advice.

Hi All,
I am sure my restoration thread is probably the most boring one here. However just to keep it from fading into oblivion, I would just like to post a part I bought from Megat a couple of days ago. Thanks, bro.

I bought the rear bumper. I hope it is not another 4 door version again like the lights. However, visually it does seem to match up to the pictures. Any comments?

Image
Looks great from the front. Few small rust bubbles.

The rear is heavily rusted and pitted however it should be fine after some chemical treatment with phosphoric acid and zinc rich paint

I just got word from a friend of a friend that he has three s20 engines and transmissions. One, he claims is built by Tomei. Depending on the price and whether it is true in the first place, I will be checking it out maybe end of this month. Got to travel quite far to check this lead out.

I think it is in good condition - chrome is all on place, reverse side rust you can kill with orthophosphoric acid and anticorrozive coating (primer etc.) So, my congratulations!

Thanks Glomerus. Will keep you guys updated on what happens to the bumper.

In the mean time, I just got these from Scudracer (my brother). Thanks, dawg!!!

I already got the car roadworthy mechanically but it still looks like @$$. At last I got some reference for restoring the car. The service manual seems to be a new reprint. Kind of pricey, but what the heck.

At last, I can experience bowel movement............. :x

Oh, yeah. Also needed some animated inspiration. Although it is not a GC110, it is still packing an L28 under the hood. If a loser Japanese teen can waste his life obsessing over a car, so can I!!!
