Remind me mate, did these replace your old B pillar covers or do they fit over them?

They stick over the B Pillar mate - its a piece of Fibre glass cut to size with a Nismo badge on the front, the rear is adhesive - which you have to get right 1st time  :sweat:  then you have to do it all over again... :scare:

 

They took probably 5 minutes each side, I used paint cleaner on the existing ones - which had started to show a few swirl marks from cleaning, - I have to say they are silly money for what they are - but they do finish the side off, and sort out the fact there is nothing on each side to say it's a Nismo.  The front sticker at £2.50 still is the bargain though :D

Thanks - They are from Japan Colin.  I bought from the same guy in Japan I bought the Kick plates from.  They have some currently - but they are not the cheapest thing on earth.  But they do honestly set off the side of the car and to be honest I was happy with it.  - you are looking currently at £170.70 for both sides + Delivery.  Takes about 2-3 weeks from order to the UK

 

http://www.ebay.co.u...s-/251788553271?

 

They are proper NISMO Parts - so you might be able to get them cheaper.  Nismo Part Number # 7689S-RNZ41

 

http://www.nismo.co...._2014/#page=289

 

Really easy to fit - just stick over the existing ones, just need to use paint cleaner or similar to get rid of any polish/wax.  They are like concrete on mine now after a couple of days.

Semi-related, was cleaning the Nismo as per usual this weekend and noticed one of my stock pillars was coming off :(

Anyone else had this? It's going in for the 1st service on Saturday so will get them to sort it, hopefully.

Does it slide up and down slightly - if so pin is snapped.  There are two slider pins as well.   Its not a cheap bit of plastic.  Probably cheaper to just have it stuck on and then it won't move again.  Both mine are stuck now, as both have gone.

Thanks Les. Sounds like what the problem is. Hopefully Nissan will sort it, be it by sticking on or otherwise. Not very impressed being as I don't drive it that regularly and take really good care of it.

I had the same, I think the Cold weather did mine in last winter the plastic got brittle and cleaning it once the middle pin snapped.  The design is off - it has two sliders and one pin the sliders can move up and down a little - which means the only bit that will break is the plastic pin in the middle.  I was happier when I looked on the US forums and found loads of people with the same fault.  Its not covered by warranty - as I checked at the time mine broke. 

 

Stick on pads last only so long - then you have to attach it with glue.

Thanks Les, very helpful as always. Sounds like a DIY job in that case then. I was going to use sticky pads but not the best solution from your experience. Can you remember what sort of glue you used as I'll prob do the same.

Many thanks,
Pete

Hi Pete,

 

I am about to undertake the glue experiment.  One side I have padded twice and it won't hold.  The other side at the moment is holding with Pads - only reason I can think is the side that is not holding is not sheltered and is getting rained on much more.  I ordered something last night to Glue it and I am going to give it a go as soon as I have it - hopefully this weekend.  I will let you know the outcome and what I used.  I cannot keep sticking it down with Pads.  It lasted about 6 months on the first pads, the latest lot I put in a few weeks ago and they have already lost stick.

 

The Nismo ones are nice - trouble is they stick on top of the black ones.  So the problem still exists - I need to sort it once and for all.  Its doing my nut it. :rtfm:

:lol:
