And if you guys have any suggestions on other parts to go along with the stages I have set up that would be great! As well as with whatever items I left in general, I am looking for some feedback regarding which parts would be best to look into for that modification.


Here are some current pictures of it after the installed parts of Stage 1; yes I know the snapchat ones look like hell. Phone was almost dead last night after I finished and wouldn't let me use my camera app, but it let me use snapchat lol so I just screenshotted from there, was too dark out to take other pictures after I was done cleaning up and getting everything back up to my place.

Thanks everyone in advance!

That sucks there is a lot of things I wish I could do with my Z that the mods are only for the newer models though
it is a nice and solid front lip. Nice sturdy fiberglass. Starting to get happy with how the Z is looking as compared to 4 months ago when I introduced myself here haha. On the outside it looked stock except for the rims

Pretty much how its been working.

The only Stage 1 mods I haven't bought from other forum members are the Rims and tires, the CAI, the clutch and the Z1 motorsports stuff, but found them off this forum anyhow lol.

Thanks guys, hit a bit of a bump in the road and ended up working close to 90 hours each of the last 3 weeks, have had almost no time to install things lol. Hopefully I will get things underway again here soon
