The illuminated kick plates are even more expensive than the logo.....and I have a set of them on the garage bench waiting to go in. This is what you need and the prices:

Kicking plate clip (76988-JM00A) x4 - 53yen each.
Kicking plate (G6950-3NK0A) (4 pieces set) x1 - 26,323yen.

Your DIY presentation is making this more of a possibility for me.

I have a couple engineer / curiosity questions though if you will indulge me.

Is there a single light source (led) in the raised center of the white piece that goes behind the emblem, or are there many positioned somehow inside the plate?
Hollow? Solid?

Is there a reflective part/ layer to the backing for the white plate. There seems to be something behind the white layer in one of the pictures. (might just be the adhesive)

Thanks

How do you get the software on the Nav to work with the All around Camera Kit modification? I assume once you install the camera device, you will still have to update the software no?

Its basically a Solid Teflon ring, with Four LED embedded in the molded ring. The LED glow very evenly through the ring. Then there is 3m Auto tape on the back that is activated with a primer wipe. In the center is the path for the wires back to the Motor Compartment.

I installed mine yesterday with help from your excellent instructions. Much easier learning to read American than Japanese.

There were some detail differences (eg no shims on my cover) and I reused the old logo instead of buying a new one (just used some carefully trimmed double sided tape to fit it.

Looks excellent :)

Onto the kick plates this weekend
