Need driver side door glass for 1975 Z coupe
JTCN posted a topic in Parts WantedHi, had my driver side glass shatter on me today and am having some trouble sourcing a new one. If anyone has one they’d like to sell or have a parts car they could pull off of for me to buy that’d be great. Also not sure exactly which years of glass will fit in my 75, I know there were changes throughout the years of the car but I read some conflicting things so far. If any well knowing Z guys can chime and help me out with that I’d appreciate it. Thanks!
Hey guys, you might have seen my posts in the various facebook groups over the last couple of days, but finally I´ll post here too, after I gathered most infos about the commonly asked questions. I’ve a glass manufacturer on hand who will produce new glass for our S30 Z’s (2 seater) It will be thinner and therefore also lighter but still obtain all safety regulations including the E sign and also the DOT number. So fully street legal in Europe and the US including all necessary testing that goes with it. Some might think thinner means a weaker windshield and also a higher risk of damage due to stone chips or what not. I ask for a statement from the manufacturer which at least to me makes sense.... so due to the fact that it’s thinner it’s also more flexible and absorbs the impact better. As our cars are not relying on structure integrity of the windscreen, it also doesn’t change any rigidity of the car. Thicker and therefor harder glass is also more brittle. The windshield for example will be approximately 5kg lighter due to the reduction from 6,76mm to 3,96mm. We’re still looking into how to seal everything but it probably has to be glued into the window seal. Then we would still be able to use the standard gasket. But that’s also the case iaw the Nissan FSM, at least for the 280z. I’m looking for people who are also interested in new door glass and rear hatch glass as they have to build a new form for it. We need in total 10 pieces made to justify the cost for a form. The sides will be 3,15mm instead of stock 3,85mm. Same for the rear hatch window. Horizontal Heating will be possible in the aft one but can also ordered without heating. Vertical heating is still questionable due to low demand, probably. (another tool has to be made for "printing" it on the glass.) Prices are without TAX but including shipping in germany, for exact shipping quote send me your address via pm and I forward it to the manufacturer. Windshield: 390€ with 2x 1,6mm glass 240€ with 2x 2,1mm glass Still waiting on raw material for these ones... sadly...: Door and hatch glass: With 10 orders: 500-600€ a piece. With 20 orders 350€-450€ due to the tooling costs. These prices are very rough calculated as the manufacturer is still waiting for answers from their supplier regarding the blue tinted glass (like OEM) in the right thicknesses. So I hope they will go down by a lot. Should know more in that regard beginning of next week. Maybe it has to be clear, let’s see... Iaw the parts catalog at least windscreen and rear hatch glass are the same across 240/260/280z. Door windows have differences in the MJ, for now they would use a 78" 280z for the forms, I hope they´re able to use them for 240/260Z too, as the general form should be the same for the door glass, just the holes and the part which mates to the metallic window mechanism has another cutout... but lets see. Shipping and selling will be done through the manufacturer and is possible worldwide. Please comment for general interest. I´m only trying to get it going with the manufacturer. Let’s see if they actually start to produce it. Bigger group buys will get an additional 10-20% off. Alright, thats it 😄 comments welcome, please discuss the idea
260z 2+2 Windows
OldR3dHat posted a topic in S30 Series - 240z, 260z, 280zHello, This is my first post, but I have been lurking a little for research. I recently found a 260z (claimed 1976, but the door is stamped 6/74?). The sketchy bit is that it has no title and no windows. I have gathered that the windshield is the same as any s30, but the door glass and hatch are different for the 2+2. I haven't bought the car yet, and I wanted to find windows to budget it out first. As a student, my budget is small so I am not afraid to use plexiglass for side windows and the hatch. The issue is I can't find any 2+2 windows, and I was hoping you guys might be able to point me in the right direction. Cheers!
Looking For A Driver Side Door Or Window.
Quwartz posted a topic in Parts WantedI have a 1976 280Z coupe, with a busted driver side window. The door has a lot of problems too: bad lock, broken door handle, and rusty. I live in the Fort Worth area, so If I can find someone local, would prefer that before looking into getting something that bulky shipped. I will also settle for just the door glass, if I can't locate a door. Thanks, Michael
Does anybody know the thickness of the factory glass? I'm planning on replacing the quarter window glass with coated polycarbonate (Makrolon AR2) while retaining the factory metal frame and rubber trim. I would like to order as close to the factory thickness as possible to aid in fitment with the rubber seals. On a side note, Makrolon AR2 is hard coated on both sides. I've read elsewhere that coated poly sheets don't suffer the same outgassing issues that regular Lexan has when trying to use tint film. I've only ever seen this done on sheets with only one hard coat. My concern is that the AR2 coating may somehow be different from traditional hard coats to compensate for the lack of an 'open' side to allow the outgassing... if anybody has any insight I would appreciate it.
