S13 Hatch (180/200/240SX) Reverse Light Gasket Template

Hand drawn, but she'll get 'er done.

by Dustin Mankin

I was working on stripping some parts to prep the ole 180SX for paint, and then I thought instead of overpaying Nissan for some foam gaskets, I'm gonna roll my own. As I was drawing the template, I thought it would be a good chance to give back to the community. They aren't perfect. They definitely aren't CAD... but sometimes a simple hand drawn pattern is all you need. If this helps even one person, then it was worth the (minimal) effort.  

I have included 2 PDFs that you can download. One is in A4, which AFAIK is everywhere except the US, and the other is Letter size, which is for the US. Sorry to my US friends, but the scale checking measurement is still in CM... by the way, what is that?

There is a little mark that says 2CM. I included it, so you can measure after you print it out, and check that everything is to scale. If it's not 2CM, then you should scale up or down accordingly.

Also, I bought a 7mm hole punch (the kind for leather, etc.) to punch my holes. The bolts for this part are M5 5mm bolts, so this should be plenty. A 6mm will also work.

Good luck on your builds, guys!!!
