Here's some stuff that might help...
I have two giant gaping holes where the radio should go, and where the 8track (GT/GT-X) and flip down cubby (GT-R) are located.
I'm also missing the upper half of the black plastic trim above the "2000GT" badge - I would like to fix all 3 issues...
My car's loud enough that a radio is nearly pointless.
The GT-R radio delete block off plate is a pretty clean solution but I'd be surprise d to hear it's even still available. Any one now?
Here's one: http://PAGE21.AUCTIONS.YAHOO.CO.JP/JP/A ... J160933088
beyond that, IF I found this radio block off plate and didn't have to negotiate away any vital organs to get it, I have a further question about how it covers the radio hole: Is the stock GT / GT-X fake wood trim around the stock radio really a separate piece of plastic from the textured black plastic surrounding frame. I wonder if that's available too. ?
From the top of where the stock radio should be to the bottom of the ashtray/lighter is one piece and come out as a single unit. If it has been cut (this is VERY common, as many owners in Japan would put a triple gauge cluster there) you will need to replace the entire piece. Ensure you disconnect the heater core cables at the heater core itself, NOT at the switches. I did this to my Hako as well, I was lucky enough to find a complete piece with the original Hitachi Radio at the NISMO Festival back in '06. I will try to get a friend to source one for you if that is the route you want to go.
like to get the GT-R style flip down cubby hole - I thought I saw one sale recently but don't remember where...
That particular item is very hard to find, I have only seen it for sale once in Japan, and it was very pricey. It is not available through Nissan Parts and reproduced replicas are not being made yet.
I am also missing the top half of the center console trim that is immedately above the "2000GT" badge - anyone know if that is still separately available as a single piece?
Again another non-reproduceditem, you'll have to find this NOS like the one mentioned above by NorCal510. To do a search on Yahoo Auctions Japan use this: スカイライン ハコスカ
And finally, I have the full complement of toggle switches in the front half of the center console (RearDefroster, Wipers, Washer, and a toggle labeled "F"). When I turn it on it seems to do exactly the same thing as what I expect the later "ParkingLight" knob that GT / GTX / GTR seem to show as available in their cars.
You could kill 2 birds with one stone and pick this up (It comes with the top piece your looking for and the GT-R delete covers for the "Rear Defogger" and "F" switch:http://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/153016410
If you you just want the GT-R delete covers, look 3/4 down this page:http://www.rubber-soul.net/p-naisou.htm
Hope this helps
