Question about 1990 Nissan 300ZX
Using a slim jim is possible but it's all by feel. There is little instructions that someone could give that would make it easy. You basically need to know what you are looking for and hit that spot blind.Taking apart another 300zx door to see things first hand is one way to figure this out. If you are not careful you can dislodge the shafts that go to your handle or your keyhole and render those useless. Unfortunately your best bet is to call a locksmith. If you have roadside assistance through your phone or car insurance, they sometimes cover this.

Call pop a lock.
Asking questions about breaking into cars, bypassing security systems, and getting around other security equipment is frowned upon here.

take an old auto antenna or, a very stiff metal rod and, using a plastic blade (like a plaster knife) bend the glass on the driver's side door; at the top of the door; gently outward; place a rubber or, wood spacer (eraser, wedge etc) between the door frame and, the glass: you only need one inch space; use the rod to press /pull the button / lever on the passenger side

You can use a wire hanger with a hook bent onto the end fairly easily if you slide it down the window and try to feel around to hook onto the lock mechanism. It may take a bit of patience, but I got into my 2000 with not too much trouble. Then do what I did immediately afterwards - get another key cut to keep in your wallet...

Open up the door panel and put the control rod back on. that often happens when getting in that way...still cheaper than a locksmith or a window!! (clip is probably in the bottom of the door)

A typical slim jim wont do the trick for you.
You need special tools to do the trick. Most tow truck drivers have them.

I don't have a diagram of the door but if you slip the slim Jim in over the top of the outside door handle it should catch on the latch bar. If you are doing this because the door won't open from the interior handle or the outside handle the problem most likely isn't the lock. The way that handle connects to the release it is held in place with a piece of plastic that breaks fairly easy. If that piece breaks the interior door handle won't activate the unlock function when pulled and you will have a heck of a time getting the door opened so you can get inside the panel to do the repair.
