Next update, i purchased one of the 3D printed cubby units (for £25 or so) on ebay that replaces the blank switch panel if you dont have heated seats. It came from the states and i did get hit with £15 import tax, but oh well.

It looked great and in 2 minutes i had it installed. It fitted perfectly.

The one thing i wasnt happy with however was the rugged top edge which just didnt look good and I really wanted an OEM look, like it had always been there.

 

I then had the idea of sawing off the top of the heated seats switch panel and then sawing off and sanding the middle separater bar bits in the middle. This would then theoretically give me an OEM looking top to the cubby.

 

So i got to work...

It came out brilliantly and all i needed to do after sanding the inside was give it a quick spray in black.

 

I then cut the lip off the cubby and glued my new lip onto it. It worked perfectly and it now looks completely OEM.

I finally got around to putting my MK1 Nismo spoiler onto the car. I kept meaning to do this, but kept putting it off.

 

The MK2 Nismo spoiler is definitely a lot better than the standard GT spoiler, but i just think the MK1 spoiler is the best by far.

 

Im so happy with it, and it really goes well with the Nismo MK2 bodykit.

Just need the Mk1 front end now ;)

The only thing that puts me off doing this is the warranty on the car and having the tail gate filled and painted

Have you done the GTR RED starter button mod. (Photo below is the stock) Changing my gear knob and the starter button swap were the first two things I did on mine.

I really don't think Nissan are sharp enough to notice a mod like this. I would be impressed if they did.:teeth:
