still evolving (slowly this time ), the titanium bolts came in today so i just bolted them on. i went with the blue finish this time, so that they are less noticeable than the stainless steel i used before.



some more mods will follow over the winter and hopefully my Z will get some new wheels next year (fingers crossed)

Looks great dude. But aren't the sides supposed to be held by clicks and double sided tape?

didn't work out even although they are genuine ING'S side skirts the fitment was soooo horrible that there was no other way tape wouldn't do the job. i know it's radical and you could prob. glue them on in this spot, but i want to have the chance to change them out easily.....soooo

It doesn't look bad I was just wondering if you knew about the clips. Sucks though, you would think authentic parts would have good fitment

so true kno! i was really suprised how bad those parts really fitted....for all that money!!!
think i had to trim each and every part of the bodykit a bit to make it fit the way i wanted it to....and still it's not 100%.

so i still had some DAI gold foil laying around and i thought to myself that it would be a nice addition to my OEM airbox...so i started wrapping it.

They are 18x9.5 +22 and 18x10.5 +22 , would have loved it to have them in 19".unfortunatly those are ony available in 18".both weight in around 22lbs. I just wanted to have some wheels which aren't such a pita to clean..i'll most def . keep the GT-S, but for now those are my wheels of choice .i would also like to thank Charles from B2Autodesign for a killer deal on those wheels and super fast shipping!

@abarclay and ruthless18x:thanks for the kind words!

i've been thinking about putting a white pin stripe/sticker around the wheel..so it would seperate the black rims from the black tires....imo otherwise it would be to much black. Or what do you guys thibk?

had some time today to finish off the airbox...unfortunatly i ran out of foil . well the airbox itself is done the only thing which needs some wrap is the lid for the air filter.
any ways here are some pics.

been a whil since the last update, but here we go.

finally found some time to install the new Gram Lights 57DR, imo the best wheels in that price range (around 1600-1800$ shipped). they are way lighter than my old VOLK GT-S. the new rear rim/tire combo weighs almost the same as my old front rim/tire combo!
