    The door is the 350Z NON-navigation storage cubby. You also need the little finisher panel that the buttons go in. Both parts come to almost $100. There is a neat mechanism for the door though so it not totally unreasonable for the mechanical operation it offers. Check one out at a Nissan dealer if you're interested. Its a lot of work to custom install it, and the dash needs to have a similar curvature which is rare too. I have a few of the main center dash panels around here that I have cut gauges out of - if anyone needs the surround for the opening and the screw mounting bosses they can have one of these pieces for $10 shipped.

    The Xenarc screen fits this part much better than the Lilli, but both are fairly easy to install because the opening is the perfect size for a 7" LCD.

    Thanks for the backside photo. That just cleared up everything.

    Also great tip on the wires too. I was wondering what kind of wires people were using.

    I can't remember exactly what I did, but it was VERY easy on the Z. I may have just added some foam tape for a more snug fit, but its almost like that Z part was made for a 7" LCD. No cutting, no gluing. I think there was some metal bracket back there I may have flipped over too.
