R34 MFD 3D-printed Bezel for Custom LCD

Recommended Posts

I drive an R34, but it is not a GTR, so it doesn't have an OEM MFD. I recently ordered an MFD housing because I want to do a custom project with a monitor for a reverse camera. The OEM bezel has a curved transition that will take a bit more work than just a flat ABS panel, so I was wondering if anyone had successfully 3D-printed something, or has a file they wouldn't mind sharing.

i doubt anyone will share a 3d printing file as its not a straightforward part to produce and will take a bit of time to model up. Plus you could then start selling the parts

These guys had a go, but i believe they were having troubles so removed the product from their shop.

I'm not after the whole cover. I purchased that new, OEM. Just the bezel that frames the screen. If that's what you meant, then I didn't see something like at 3D Racing Solutions. Just the whole cover.

And I understand that most people wouldn't want to share a file. But the general attitude of the post was mostly one of seeking information.

Ah sorry, i misread the post. if its just a bezel, it shouldnt be too hard to draw up if you can provide dimensions.

Might be worth downloading fusion360 and watching a couple of youtube videos then you can have a go at making the file yourself.

maybe cut up a bit of card to start with, measure it then tweak the curvature on CAD.

    • Far out, people still post here occasionally!
    • I still await Startrack for my Balancer. In the meantime, my lovely girlfriend sold her Turbo MX5. Her criteria was "Something Japanese, Fun, but a hatchback" (cause she doesnt like 100kmh highways in a MX5, and tends to go to bunnings a lot) Basically my Megane, but Japanese. Because she is blessed, not cursed, this is now in the driveway, 1 day later. Bonus Extras (that she and seller didn't notice, but I did) Genuine P1 Buddy Clubs Genuine Mugen Wang Short shifter of some sort (shifts amazingly, def not stock - we test drove a few cars) Aftermarket Helical LSD (Quaife?) One of the other ones we tested had an Intake, for max VTEC sounds. So we're getting one of those. As for how it drives, I have now experienced 3 different cars in this household I should primarily drive around instead of my R34. I googled bolt on supercharger kits for the K20, which was the inspiration for my mate's supercharged BMW, and found that when I overlaid a video of someone doing a 50-250kmh pull, and my own video at Sandown in the LS Skyline... they were identical in acceleration. Every frame of the entire thing. It was eerie. My lovely gf is extremely happy, and I am too. They really do drive excellently, and the fit and finish and interior is just awesome. I am more excited to drive this thing around than my own car, which I hope to high heaven is just because it's new to me and a great deal/hilariously good buy. However this completes our household change from Turbo life to N/A Purity!
    • Yeah, it's a real thing  But isn't that what hobbies are for
    • Yes, a brand new box needs to wear in a little, and the "big box" is actually pretty beefy compared to most. Just treat it nice for 500klm then change the oil, see if it improves
    • Just put in a brand new RB25DET big box, auto conversion. Last time I drove manual was my 260Z, 15 years ago. But this box seems a bit notchy shifting up. Are new gearboxes like this? Do they have a break in period? Also noticed a vibration on the clutch pedal when shifting close to red line. It is R34 box, with a pull clutch. I installed a new Nismo sports clutch with a slightly lighter flywheel. I am running Penrite Pro Gear 75W-90. Cheers
