Yeah but I'm still in the honeymoon period, we'll see what it's like if I own it as long as you had yours. I'm already thinking that I need a third car to abuse.Gah, you doing all sorts of neat DIY things to yours and documenting it in such glory makes me miss my NC even more
I hadn't noticed the difference in the shape of the cutouts but it's obvious now you mention it. I stumbled across this 3D printable version of the blanking plate randomly while looking for wiring diagrams. I can't decide if I want a 3D printed version though, unless I go through the hassle of getting a foam gasket it could damage the paint that's still OK and cause more rust.
There's also a second part with a camera mount, something I had considered but have decided I don't really need. I initially wanted four cameras like I had in the Tesla but that's just not necessary, most rear dashcams aren't designed to be mounted on the exterior so it's just going to be a hassle and the camera will get dirty in that position above the number plate.
I plan to get a Viofo UHD dashcam for the front and that's it, the reason being that I want the dashcam footage to be good enough to keep alongside/in place of GoPro footage, for example 'Ring laps where I don't have the GoPro fitted. It would be nice if it was 60fps as well but that would chew through SD card space like mad and I can always run footage through my Topaz software if I really want 60fps.
Another thing I found by mistake last night is what I shall call a boot-well organiser. This guy primarily designed it for the ND but created one for the NC, with the templates available for free on Thingiverse. It looks perfect for organising bits in the boot and providing a more flat floor at the same time. Sample pic from his site:
