p510 1600 // rubber kits

Postby drjkyl » Fri Jan 15, 2016 11:55 am

Hi all,

Happy NY & hope Santa was good to everyone!

sorry if this has been covered, tried a search but not much luck.

Can anyone recommend a shop with good rubber kits? e.g. rubbers around the doors

need the rubber to do the final alignment before paint.

Thanks in advance,
DRJKYL

I bought mine form Datsport in Australia.
But you can buy other product from eBay, or Rarespares etc

A word of warning; Apologies if this has been covered before but I would hate to see anyone caught out. I bought rubber from Rare Spares while in Australia. I then found the Australian made 510's had windscreen rubbers and trim as part of their Australian content. These are the same style as 70's Holdens with a channel rather than the single slot like NZ and Japanese 510's. If buying windscreen rubbers from Australian suppliers I understand the ones to order are either sss or 68 model as neither where Australian assembled. Fortunately I discovered the situation while still in Australia however using an NZ credit card meant the bank took a cut on my purchase and again on my refund.

The one from Datsport (in Australia) has the channel for inserting the windscreen trim.
