I hope you like Easter, because you'll be on the hunt whenever you need something! I mean that in good humor, searching for parts, deals, upgrades can be part of the fun in owning older cars. Junk yards, part outs and fabrication are the ways to keep them on the road. You can always start with the local parts store and branch out from there. Forums. That's a really good one. Get into a community. Like here! Great move. Being in touch with others will help. Guys have entire front yards dedicated to DIY picknpulls of their favorite make/ model. My friend had three XR4TI's in his yard and he'd get parts from the guy who had like 8 in his yard!

Things like seals or felts might have to be improvised or universal and made to fit.

Welcome to NICO! Post and make a presence. I'm sure you'll develop some resources for parts and ideas.

Thanks for your reply - and you're right - it IS a search. I think I found the window felts. The other two parts are elusive (I've searched parts stores, online parts, ebay, junkyards and forums....)

Welcome, the forums are your best bet. Members like me usually have parts from change outs or upgrades. I recently bought a complete cab for my truck and had the glove box latch but here in the West Indies parts does not stay in your hands for long. Keep searching the forums, someone will have what you are looking for. :bigthumb:

Facebook forums. Search in their search bar for "nissan 720 owners". We all have paypal and buy and sell parts to each other all the time. CHEERS!!!

I have a complete standard cab four-wheel-drive donor truck. I am located in Central Montana. Email me at [email protected] Let me know what you need, I'll let you know what I have. Put 720 in the subject line so it doesn't go to spam.

Does your donor truck have the plastic kick panels? I'm looking for a pair in any color.
