It's GT Nissan at 38 Kent Terrace, Wellington
The guy dealing with this is Shaun 04 801 5567
I've had a trawl through the 4 boxes (120l storage size) of parts about a year ago, but very little was for the 105 series. I think he has a few lost boxes that occasionally turn up with 105 bits. For the rest of the parts, I don't recall the majority of parts number (maybe 116?)
Shaun's a great guy and very helpful so give him a call

So yeah, I knew the seals needed replacement - they all do, it's a 35 yr old car - but it wasn't a problem as long as the window was closed properly. There's only so much money to spend on replacing bits.
I agree with Paul, Alex's comments are unfair and just a little too passionate.
The rubber 'hinges' can and do deteriorate, but as long as the window remains closed (or even partially open on the latch) it'll stay in place so a problem or deterioration isn't obvious even in normal use.
I found this out when I went to remove the latch to polish up. The window simply moved rearward (which the latch stops from happening) and dropped out of the B-Pillar. Thankfully I was holding the latch at the time and the window dangled from my hand down the side of the car. (Was due to be repainted so no problems with scratching)
