Deck Lid Panel, Dark Brown, 74-78 260Z-280Z Coupe
|Quantity in Basket:none|
40-4804 Black panel shown. The panel you will receive will be the correct Dark Brown color with the same overall shape and design as the black panel above.
Now you can replace your old, worn out deck lid panel with our new high-quality reproduction panel. We use the same premium dark brown vinyl used in many of our other interior vinyl pieces and appropriate fiberboard backing. The deck lid panel attaches to the bottom of the tailgate. This panel is for 74 through 78 Z Coupes.
We recommend using original style hardware (inspect your deck lid; see Hardware Note below) when installing these panels for best results and ease of access down the road rather than using any kind of adhesive. While the holes in the rear backing of this panel should match almost all factory deck lids within a normal tolerance, we have found some cases where the hole pattern in the hatch is off slightly due to welding irregularities. Test fit the panel first to make sure the holes line up close enough for the the hardware. Then, using an Awl, punch a small hole in the outer material from the top (vinyl) side (be sure not to rip sideways, and to punch from the top material towards the backing) to match the pre-cut hole in the backing. In rare cases, if your Z deck lid is one of the oddballs that are slightly off from this pattern, you may have to elongate a hole or two slightly in the backing to accommodate. Since the outer surface won't be pierced until you have checked, it should always end up looking like the first one. Let us know if you have any questions.
We have seen inconsistent quantities over the years when it comes to the hardware used to hold the Interior Deck Lid Panels in place. Nissan specifies 10 metal screws and washers for all 74-78 vinyl panels. The most common hardware configuration that we have seen uses a combination of both plastic interior rivets and metal screws and washers, with the screw/washer combination in the corners and plastic rivets for the remaining 6 mounting holes. We recommend inspecting and matching the hardware configuration in your specific car.
