I replaced my drivers door handle which was very simple and went without a hitch. I replaced the passenger seat switch also went without a hitch but took a lot longer than the door handle. I put redline mtl in the trans. It really did help shifting ( I was skeptical but now am sold) Ran out of time to wash it. Maybe tomorrow. Now it is time to kick back.
later on

Welcome to NICO Rick! :badger

What MTL did you use, the normal mix or something else?

You should stop by the 350Z General Discussion thread and introduce yourself and your Z when you get some time. :)

Good job. Such a pretty car. Like the license plate mount. Soooooo glad that TN doesn't have a front plate.

i love everything about nissan especially the z car and have owned a 76 280z, 87 z31, and two 90 z32s and love everything about all of them n always wished i could get a z33.. so finally i purchased this 07 touring with 30k miles about a month or so ago and have done a few mods over the last two weekends..
this is it when i got it..
Image
Image
and last weekend i threw on top speed pro1 catback exhaust, takeda intakes, and a seibon carbon fiber hood. this weekend i had the windows tinted 15% and got my varrstoen wheels on her, and cut out the fin kinda things in the opening of the front bumper cover..

i also ordered a carbon creations vader 2 carbon wing that hopefully will be installed soon.. :)

thank you :bigthumb: they are verrstoen ES111 wheels, the fronts are are 18x9.5 +12 and the rears are 18x10.5 +15.. they are alot more aggressive looking in person n stick out a bit but should flush up with a lil camber if i get some coilovers. not that super camber helaflush stuff either, just enough to tuck the tire in the fender well..

the wing i ordered did not fit so i had to break it n get another one sent out, i dunno why i was worried about installation i was a breeze using the included bolts and 3m vhb double sided tape... heres how she turned out!! :naughty:
Image
Image
heres the first carbon creations v 2 wing.. i guess the manufacturer ordered a "field destroy" because it didnt fit n i had to break it beyond repair before theyd send me a replacement.. it was a hell of a lot stronger than i expected haha

Nope! I love that people post up what they're doing, sometimes it's inspirational, sometimes it makes me feel guilty. :) :frown: :lolling:

I just got done swapping my summer wheels (Track Version 1 from Rays) over to the stock Touring Version Twos that I've relegated to winter duty. It seems like Hurricane Sandy has a long reach and is even affecting me all the way over in Tennessee. There's a winter storm warning forecast right through my commute with 4"-8" in the local area and a possibility of up to 12" in the mountains at the state line, figured I should have the best rubber I've got in contact with the road (snow?), in this case it's a set of Bridgestone RE970's I picked up last year to replace my aging 960's. But then, if that much snow drops I doubt I'm going anywhere, but if it's just some light stuff and rain I'll be on the road.

Well, at least my TPMS light won't come on now. :)

Nice pics. I need to get my car out while the trees are so pretty and take some.

I love your diffuser. I finally gave up on getting mine. That place was so frustrating to deal with. I think I'm just going to do the overlay.

ahh tpms, i live down a dirt road with many rocks n holes lol :facepalm: walked outside to wash the z n bent down to see some fresh scrapes on the pasenger side front wheel :( right next to the valve stem so im guessing the rock was big enough to hit it n possibly throw the sensor out of whack? or maybe break it i dunno, but the tpms light wont turn off after adjusting pressure and driving so im gonna have to check it out... n thanks im glad someone likes it :bigthumb: the diffuser was only like $260 shipped. the front lip and diffuser both actually fit near perfect which was a relief after dealing with the hood n wing, the wing still doesnt come close n its the second one they sent out!! things are quite difficult when ordering through ebay i have found out, some worse than others but the company i got the lip from originally sent me a carbon lip that looked like it was for a camaro!! i dont know how you could mix up two completely different shapes but i just figured people make mistakes... luckily my expensive purchase worked out pretty good
Image
ordered this for $4700 shipped.. actually got here in a week from SC which is surprising cuz i live in the middle of nowhere lol
i also got my third z32 running n cleaned up a bit
Image
i traded a 1g dsm with no interior, salvage title, cracked #1 piston scarred piston wall, warped head, and two broken valves two more bent for this z32. the guy said the motor was locked up cuz it woulnt start so after a little tinkering n a harness swap she runs!! :chuckle: im trying to get a little cash for it so i can get a 4x4 for parts running n the up coming winter. the z33 is definitely not thanking me for taking it up n down these dirt roads so much but its what has to happen to work on the s13..... n i refuse to drive it in snow.
anyway.. i wanted that mastergrade carbon diffuser n chargespeed carbon skirts with the tt front lip, but with the other project i have going on n bills i just stuck to these not so expensive parts. next i wanna get these carbon creations universal side splitters i saw a guy with a red z33 was using.. sexy n clean n i thing itd compliment the current carbon parts i have so far quite well.. after that a change of scenery n ill be able to get some coilovers n take care of that height!!!
