Thank you for the kind comments. The plaque is in a unusual position, normally its on that same panel but further to the left. Maybe the previous owner requested to have it there and then installed the Rtune duct afterwards?

At first i though it was the plaque scorched over several years but then realised it was the new plastic tape still stuck on it from the installation

For the last almost 5 years of my ownership the damn Nismo omori plaque lay hidden out of sight under the R-Tune air duct, including cellophane still attached. a0b7203f2d53ff11be2fe564fc3e51ae.jpg   What a surprise and the icing on the cake for me! felt like finding some long lost treasure.

With the R-Tune air duct off the car i start working on trying to remove the bolt for around 5 mins before i realise something, this was the scene...... 89ce7c9e86b15919fdb85b3433e42a94.jpg

So this is where is gets interesting, i need you all to put yourselves in my shoes and imagine you owned the car for over 4 years. So it goes a little like this....... Armed with my new Nismo carbon half panel i wake up one morning and decide that its time for an upgrade. I start to remove the existing beautiful Mines carbon full panel from the car and end up shearing the bolt holding the AC rad bracket.

Now im stressed out and trying to work out how best to remove the bolt which unfortunately had ended up being cross threaded by the numpty who took it off in the first place. I decide to take off the Nismo R-tune air duct located just above it for some better access to the bolt from behind.......
