Well I'll answer my own question and forever deposit it in the XDA repository of information...
Does a LG Optimus G E970 sim tray fit a Nexus 4: Sorta.
The White one on the left is the E970's. It will insert into the N4 and come out just fine with a sim card ejector tool. It's even clearly holding the sim with the same metal tray as the black original Nexus 4 tray. The problem is its clearly not tall enough on the plastic cap. It's a similar shape but the one I was shipped from a E970 is maybe a mm too short.
So if you have a white Nexus 4, whatever you do, do not lose the sim card tray. It's next to impossible to find a replacement.
Next stop: Autozone. The black one is getting some white (really probably a cream) colored touch up paint job. And of course the case isn't a brilliant white, it's a hard to match off white.
