I like the wheels and exhaust. I'd stay away from the ebay parts (or at least look into reviews and such) because fitment will likely be an issue. Also, I don't know about the headlight quality, but there's a decent chance you'll get condensation and dust build up in them if they're not sealed well.

Complete ? 100% ? I doubt it. It would still look like a 350Z after everything is said and done.

So far I have gotten my dark gray matte wrap I think the color is really close to black and has a nice gloss.

My rims came through USPS which is nice.

and my headlights came.

I still am pretty pissed how i have to wait nearly a month for my exhaust system from Tomei

Edit: the pictures of the my rims in boxes does not do it justice heres another picture just to show people that I am serious about my project

Should look good. Prob going to need more for that spoiler.

Stock body sitting low with those Oem Nismo's spaced out nicely would look soooo much better.

I decided to cancel my order of the Tomei Exhaust system and buy Momentum single back exhaust system with the y pipe all for 780 bucks. I decided to take advantage of the black friday deals.

That wrap should look good. 4 weeks of waiting sucks, but that's the world of JDM lol. I've heard good things about the momentum exhaust though so I'm sure you'll be happy with it.

Honestly dude be prepared to wait even longer than that. Japan isn't going to ship anything over until the container is full. The only way that's going to happen is waiting for enough orders to be placed. I waited almost 3 months for lug nuts which were "in stock" until I placed the order then they told me it would be 1 month. I called after one month and they said it would be another month. Called in another month and they said another month.

Can't go wrong either way! Momentum is quality!

All those mods on stock height will look a little weird. If you don't have another 1k to spend on exterior mods pickup springs until you do.
I just got my tires from tirerack.com I feel sorry for the guy who had to walk up three stories just to deliver my tires.

I got 285 35 19 rear and 245 40 18 fronts...Bridgestone Potenza S-04s. I didn't want to wait for the Michelins Super Sports because those are backordered and much more pricey.

The tires on the rear from what I see will take care of the tire gap, I am not sure about the fronts though their might be a slight tire gap. The body kit is suppose to make it appear lower.

^ +1 for extremely close to good specs, although having the same wheels and same tire specs I would have went with 275-35 19. I did have the 285 but cut it back down. You can lower as low as you want with the 275 and not scrub even without a fender roll. I think it looks better as well.

I don't have any updated pictures, I went down to the shop and I stared at my 350z for like 3 hours and the guy working on my car gave me a ride home..he said he will finish tomorrow...

this shop almost took like 4 days to wrap my car is that normal?

Also the picture I posted above does not do it justice....the color is much darker it basically looks like this

With the bill I'm expecting you to get I think you probably could have gave it an OK paint job. I've heard of wrap jobs costing $3k.

my matte wrap is now finished I took the car home....I am still not satisfied because the headlights and rims....BTW it cost $1,300 total. Wrap was 404 and labor 900 bucks. = P

look at attached photos. The picture do not do it justice, to be honest when I see it in person its really close to black.. like a dark dark gray.


Headlights Friday

Saturday - Rims / Tires

z1 motorsports told me exhaust will be coming to me before christmas....

gives me time to get safety check...then take off orange reflectors and put clear ones in.

the side skirts make the car look low and thats good because I don't think it will be necessary for me to get coilovers or springs

Wrap looks good, headlights will look nice. I think after seeing it on the car, a deep dish rim would've look really good.

I'm liking the sides but I'm not so sure about the front, I think it just looks weird because of the shadows though?

Keep us posted!
