Clever little solution to get rid of the blanked buttons in the centre console.

But they would probably ship several for the same cost...

Does that mean on the nismo you have to move the seats by hand and no heated seats

Well this is easy.

Pull up from the back of the cup holder.

Remove 4 cross head screws holding the blank buttons.

Screw two back to the new cubby rear.

I then screwed the other two back in just in case I ever want to revert.

Push back down and clip into place.

That’s it. A few pictures.

Removed from the centre console

Unscrew the blank buttons

Screw in the new part and couple of unneeded screws.

The Nismo doesn't have heated seats, so these three are just blanked out on the Nismo - the V2 is the same as well.  So you end up with three blanks which are never likely to be used.  Not the case on the GT.  The Base Zed would be the same as well.

Nice idea but I think the finish looks pretty shocking in the photos, that would nag me every time I saw it.

Its 3D Printed mate.  Its better in the nismo than having 3 blank buttons.  I think some people have trimed them down in the states.  But hey its fine.  as Nissie has moved in to the new home (my little Nismo bear)

I reckon it could be sanded smooth, but I don't think it bothers Les, or he'd have done it.

3D printing, now that explains the textures on the top, just a shame you can`t get some sort of beading to finish off around the top edge to give it that factory finish look.

The smallest quadrant beading I have found is 9mm which still might be too big.

Not bad!  As said, it just needs a little tidying.

 

From the picture it looks like the caddy is a good fit in the hole, so I would put some sandpaper face up on a table and rub the caddy face down on that to get a smooth surface on the top edges.

 

If the caddy then sits too low in the hole, sand some off the lugs to raise it up again.  If the lugs would be too thin then strengthen them with some epoxy resin first :)
