my dollars they got..

back up and running.

Ill have some videos soon btw.. this thing looks nuts laid out w no bumpers..
and yeah ill be fixing those tabs soon as well.

got my headlights up and wired, got the thermostat and controler for my oil cooler fan installed by the ABS controller.. and wire tucked the front core support over the weekend..



after all of that..

one tiny wiring snafu inside the drivers headlight.. and i fear i will have to pull it open again to fix it..

my switchback for the amber led dots on the top of the light are supposed to turn red anytime a red demon eye halo feature is turned on.. works fine on one side, and not the other.

[email protected]

Overall its the LED work is flawless though.. thanks to Sam Rios and ZLEDS.com

The 5k white halos and side panels shut off anytime the turn signal is used, then they flash amber.. right back to white when the signal turns off.. just like OEM DRLs do.
Its clean as hell. Everytime i think ive seen the coolest thing on this build.. i add the next thing and think " sweet jesus thats legit".


The headlight aim is 100% jacked up now too, so Ill have my buddy Ivan fix it next week at the dealership.. hes a member of my azexiled group.. a master GTR tech and owns the Red Stillen 350z seen in all the old ads etc.

I went ultra rice and bypassed the factory corner LED parking lights and installed a 27 led, 2 mode led in each.. switch it on once, they are static, switch it on twice, they are pulse strobing. Totally hidden otherwise.

good for getting the attention of show goers or the occasional prius in the HOV.


I have to relay and mount my 142 DB horn on the core, as well as remount this PS cooler..
other than that, the rest is going to be butter.

oh yeah. lol.. i fogot how comical it is when my dual air compressors turn on.. pulls my alternator down to 12 v flat in an instant lol.. so THATS not good.

Time to end the alternator woes for good and buy a 250 amp overbuilt insane billet body from DC Power INC.. we are in talks for sponsorship today..

https://www.dcpowerinc.com/high-outp...3.5L+V6+VQ35DE

579 bucks.. but this should be the be all , end all solution for me.
Id love to be able to forget about my charging system for once, and pound my woofer on its own merit, not on the merit of the voltage gauge.

Maybe I missed it, it's 100 degrees here and have a headache, but what are you doing about the fenders in the rear now that the VS kit is gone?
