You missed a spot.

Just kidding. Great job!

I'm a Zaino fanboy though. That and a Canon fanboy too.

Detailing thread and no 50/50 or mirror shots!?
Oh well, results look nice though!

hmm now that I saw your comment, I went back and really liked the idea. This way you do not block part of the front bumper as you would with the front license plate kit from Nissan. I may give this a try.

Default Front plate location

There are two pilot points to drill for hanging the front plate "frame". The service department wanted to drill the bumper until I pointed out the pilot points and said "Not on the bumper".

Now that it's been brought out, how did you mount that plate anyways? I never really gave it much thought about the front plate. I wasn't going to run one anyways haha. I'm just having a hard time imagining the mounting point in my head.

I love the 19" Rays, but your photography brings out one aspect that I do not like about them—the inner rim is not properly finished. This drives me nuts as they are hard to detail with a partial, and incomplete finish.

Great job on the detailing of your Z!

OP: Did you drill some extra holes on the license plate frame in the front because i tried to put mine up a few minutes ago and realized that the holes drilled by the dealer to mount the "bracket" are much further apart than the plate frame i want to use.

My dealer did the install. I thought the OEM plate frame lined up with the holes? Hmmm...... one would think license plate frames/brackets should be similar.

Just checked....the dealer drilled 3 holes.....(thankfully covered by the plate frame). The first hole was drilled in one of the pilot holes and then they probably relaized that the plate would not be centered, the next 2 holes were drilled to center the plate frame.
