Default Nismo Body Kit Conversion w/ Nismo CF High Wing

I am writing this post for others who are interested in doing the same converting their Base/Sport/Touring Model to a Nismo Body Kit.

Upfront, I strongly advise anyone to buy a Nismo 370z before attempting this unless you want to piss money away like me. haha.

Some might ask why I am doing the conversion then? Sigh, I guess I'm just greedy and wanted the OEM Touring Interior w/ the Nav along with the Body Kit, and anyone knows it's just as bad as a dilemma if I ended up with a Nismo 370z then trying to add back the factory Touring + Nav features. It's also pissing money away. Unless you live in Japan, then problem solved. They have a fully loaded Nav version Nismo 370z.

Moving along, I'm still in the middle of collecting the rest of the pieces. Since there's so many parts to this conversion, I want to put together a BOM of the parts needed and their OEM P/N for the ease of ordering. I'll update this thread as I go.

For cheapest online deal, I suggest you to an online warehouse such as:
- Nissan Parts Zone
- Courtesy Parts
over going to a local dealership. Most Local dealership from my experience are a rip off and would hardly even give you a 10% discount. The only good part about it is you get to save on shipping. If you order that much parts anyway, you're better off ordering it online as paying $1-2 more per body clip/Screws/nuts, things will add up QUICK! Price listed below will be MSRP, you will need to shop for the best price.

DO YOUR RESEARCH - TIME WILL SAVE YOU $$$.

I dont know the part number for the screws but theres somewhere around 8 -10 of them for the diffuser alone. I believe those screw plate things go on the inner front bottom of the bumper on the corners....right before the tires. Not sure if the oem under shroud will fit the nismo bumper.

You want Joe@ZSpeed's undertray, it's cheaper and better than OEM, AND he gives you the hardware

Until I got the ZSpeed undertray, my front bumper had no real rigidity, and I broke several fenderliners and clips. When I installed the undertray, I went with the Nismo front fender liners.

The front end is much more solid now.

Luckily I was able to get the OEM Nismo Splash guard for a very very good deal. I'm waiting for it to arrive this week. Looks like I would need the Nismo Front Fender Liners as well too, they over lap and don't fit and I guess they're cheap enough to buy.

I would've went for amuse tbh, cheaper and looks better. But maybe your wanted to keep an OEM look.

I also like the look of the sport wheels on a nismo over nismo wheels.

Yes, I love these wheels (Sport Rays over Nismo Rays). I've seen this 40th Anniversary Edition video before too.

I like how the original designer of the 370z actually designed these Rays as opposed to the Nismo ones. The only thing I like for the Nismo is the enlarged width - plus even if I have the money, I wouldn't upgrade em to Nismo, instead I'd get myself a set of aftermarket dedicated track wheels.

As for the Body Kit, I think Amuse did a great job on it!! But I'd still prefer the OEM look. I fell in love with the Nismo body kit since it came out before I even bought the car - so I have a one track mind.

I think the ultimate 370z would be a 40th Anniversary Edition with all the Nismo Body parts & upgrades including Nav from factory. That would be one pretty nice 370z. Before I bought my car, I was going to attempt that, but I call the HQ and they wouldn't put the Factory Nav in the 40th like the European ones. Also, I would love to have the 40th in Black like europe.

I just placed an order thru Discount Body Parts for the Nismo Front Left & Right Fender Liner Splash Guard.

The OEM P/N's are: F3845-1A30A (Left) & F3844-1A30A (Right) and they go for $72.45/each MSRP.

I placed an order for $26.13/each + free shipping from Discount Body Parts

They're not OEM from Nissan but they claim they're OEM replacement parts and Nissan sometimes directly order parts from them. We'll see. If it serves the function, I'm happy.

I'll post pictures when I get them in.

Thanks buddy, this project was supposed to be a 2 yr long project considering so many things I need to save up for. I too thought I might smooth out the front emblem too but my car will be too blacked out. We'll see. Still have time to decide.

It started with me finding the front bumper for sale ~$400 and side skirts for $350 from a forum member. It lured me in, now I'm screwed collecting the rest of the parts which will cost me $2000+. But it's finally coming together. I'm getting the OEM Nismo under shroud Friday and Nismo Fender Liner Splash guard sometime this week as well.

I'm in the process of converting front to Nismo front.

Do you know how to use that weird looking rivet to install the bumper brackets? It looks like a folded umbrella with a long pin.

Also, are you planning to paint with your under facia installed? I'm debating whether to paint first and then fit other small pieces on or the other way around..
