UPDATE:

so i installed everything else yesterday and test drove the car for about 30km.
the car sits now ultra low up front you have at least 8 cm of clearance (on stock 18" wheels).still need to fix up some parts but other than that the car is done for now.
and of course the installation of the front bumper didnīt went out the way i wanted it to!! i personally think that the fitment was way better before it was painted (but i could be wrong) and yes i scratched the front while driving of my ramps ....sucks but thatīs how it goes with tooooo low cars.
the oil cooler also works pretty good way too good....think to put something in front of the cooler to have it 50% covered so that the oil heats up a bit "better" right now with the cooler uncovered i had about 79-81°C of oil temperatur at 28°C ambient and driving for 12km not reving over 3k (the car stood now for about 1,5 year in the garage so i didnīt wanted to kick her at the first ride). i think iīll get some acrylic glass and cut it the way i need it to cover the half of the cooler. with this mod the oil should get hotter and i still have the hole oil cooler visible to show off this ARC beauty
well thatīs it for now, but as i already said iīll upload some pics later this day!!!!!

nothing i wasn't there with the Z (because i didn't really had a chance to test the car for more than 30km......oil leaks etc., and i didn't want to go on a 600km ride with that in mind ), but i think he was a bit pissed that he had to sign a ARC part , but i also had the impression that he was absolutly surprised someone wanted a autograph from him
what else is to say that the two guys are absolutly cool guys and really friendly!!!!
there was a RUF Porsche (as far as i understood a test car with a V8!!!!!) there and Mr Ito was really interested like a little boy he was nearly crawling in to the engine bay of the Porsche to see how RUF works i personally think this shows how much these japanese guys are into cars and "technologies" and these things are also reflected in their parts!!

Z looks great Jan!! Now you need to get the GTS' mounted and start on the other project. I think the 12 would be better than the 6 to be honest. Definitely not something you see everyday. If you need anything you know where to find me. Have fun and enjoy your toys man.

Regards,
Jeremiah

Nice project! Aesthetically I think the front end needs something. Not sure what. Maybe '06+ headlights? Anyway keep up the good work...look forward to future updates.

Yes just the hood

On a serious note, you have a lot of "race car" looks w/"non race car" styled wheels. Just by looking at what you have, you and I have similar tastes and I think a different wheel would do well for the exterior.

Love that hood! Looking into picking one up also once I order another Type-E front.. Car's looking good, but I personally like the look with canards..

your Z is absolutly awesome!!! i really like your wheels are those +12 offsets?
yeah i would like to run the canards too i have them at home right now, but i canīt install them because itīs absolutly impossible to get them street legal here in germany.
if you need them just let me know i would really like to get rid of them

Sorry to go off-topic, but: @ 2k6-z33, which side skirt add-ons are you running? Sort of looks like OEM Nismo edition color matched to your car?
