    Haynes manuals are worthless. They will not go into detail about what is needed to take out a dashboard. They are good for general reference.

    You need the manuals that the dealer techs use, like a Helms manual. Much more in depth, but also more expensive.

    I have found that the Haynes manuals give you enough of an idea as to where screws, clips and suchlike are, to get most bits of the dash out. Anyway I would think most people have a book for there own car, so why don't you ask them. Also Haynes manuals over here are about 10 which is $6, surely you can stretch to that, just add it to their final bill.

    Also God_of_CPU ...did you get you g35 enclosures in production?
    The screen housings went off to production a couple weeks ago and I have been told that the design is workable so its just a matter of time now. I'm estimating another 2 weeks and I should have them ready to sell.

    I just finished the design for a single DIN converter for the upper glovebox too, will be about a month before I start selling these. Its not specifically designed for mounting a carputer there, but it will fit a mini ITX board and give you a starting point. http://g35driver.com/forums/showflat...=5&part=1&vc=1 I will be selling a version without any cutouts in the face plate specifically for carputers that will allow you to cutout areas for a slimline slot loading dvd or whatever buttons you want then just mount in place. I should have pictures up before I start selling them with 1 way to mount an ITX board in place.

    $5.00 will get you the plans for your car at crutchfiled, you can ask them to email it to you in .pdf format. I did and it saved me time. the instructions are very clear.

    Also, I highly recommend you spend $20 and download the whole service manual from infiniti. It gives detailed instructions on how to take a part absolutly everything:
    http://g35driver.com/forums/showflat...sed&sb=5&part=

    If you are looking to put a Xenarc VGA screen in a non-NAV g35, I am currently in the process of mass producing the housing I made for my own g35 and I will be selling them sometime in September once they are manufactured. Pictures of the prototype housing can be found here https://filebox.vt.edu/users/cholbroo/g35/ E-mail me at [email protected] if you want more information and pricing on it.
    thats awesome

    once i get my g i want that
    if it had matching paint to the dash it would be perfect

    does it fold down also?






    i thought it was funny you mentioned al&eds yun, didnt think many people wouldve heard of them; my grandpa (al) owned that business and sold it 3 years ago

    The frame matches the aluminum accents in the g35 pretty closely, the only way I notice any difference is if I take the frame and put it next to one of the accents. Its slightly lighter. Yes it does fold down, there are some pictures in it in the filebox link i mentioned earlier.
