Picked up an undertray from Tollbooth, painted and installed.

Ran out of gray appliance paint, went with 2-tone, black on the front section.

Been a while:

Got the Z33 shocks and springs on the G35 (supposed to be 1/2 inch drop). Measured a 1/4 inch lower as soon as we put it down (compared at the front bumper light.

I'll take pics later in the week, hope it settles a little lower. Taking it for inpsection and alignment this week sometime.

Rear is much easier than S chassis, the front, not so much. Took much longer than I expected, especially after we put one shock on the wrong way in the front and had to redo.

Won't drive up on the ramps, front is too low. Drive up on my custom ramps (2x6 and 1x6 together), then jack up the front and put the ramps under the tires.

Just a little more stiff. Which will soften a little more with a bigger sidewall on the next set of tires. It does feel a bit more sporty with the stiffer springs and 19s compared to when it was stock with the 17s.

Would like to find the sport model front sway bar to help a little too. But I've got a lot to save for with both S13s needing body work/body kit/paint.

Probably just as cheap to get hotchkis for it than paying for a used factory one.

I've seen OEM sway bars for like $50 or less, just usually are on the West coast so shipping would hurt. No big hurry on anything, there is just things I'd like to add on the G (Nismo bumper, sway, exhaust), but I'm not really searching for them, if I happen to find them, then cool.

Understood. And a factory sway is better than none :)

Happy late Christmas to me. Couldn't pass up the Brembos for my base brakes +$300. Excuse the offroading I had to do to get out of the guys yard.

Picked up a replica V2 nismo bumper. Just not sure how long it'll take me to get it painted and installed.

Yeah it's one of the bright silvers. And it's got some spider cracks/scuffs in the paint as well. Got it pretty cheap, will be much more to prep/paint it.

Yeah, got lucky on the bumper and brembos. The bumper was $85, but painting it is going to run $250, its with the painter now, probably back tomorrow or so.

The Brembos the guy I got them from traded his stock brakes and aftermarket wheels for the brembos and aftermarket wheels on a girls Z33. Just because she like his wheels better and they wouldn't fit over the brembos.

Back from paint. Just a touch darker right now but should lighten up with sun and time.

Will try to get the grille and mesh on this weekend and wash it.
