Got it home and after 10-15 minutes of fooling around, I got it up the drive way. So it looks like straight into the driveway is the best bet.

Ordered the kit in April and after 6 months, its finally done...well, besides the hood.

thanks man...You're probably the only person thats seen me come full circle in the Z community, since 2007 or so. Ive got some really good photoshoot pics coming, Ill be dropping all over here, this weekend.

Yeah though, this is probably my lowest car Ive ever had. Literally make it over speed bumps by 1-2mm. I just let the bolts on the underside, drag. Theyll flatten eventually, I guess.

I wish there was a lot more down the road. Like a turbo set up or full interior redo. This may be where I stop, after I get the hood installed next month and a wrap put on a few months from now.

Thanks a lot for saying that.

*already posted in media section but wanted to update my build thread*

A friend of mine took a few hours and did a shoot with my car. Figured it would be nice to have one before the hood and wrap, as it is now, and then afterwards, early in 2021.

I love it, even your pics are on point! This thread delivers!

It's so cool to follow you now on your third build, I loved your Z33 but now this one is even more badass. I would totally be happy with what you have and not even wrap it, the black totally pops.

So many kind words, starting all the way back in 2008! Thanks Waiz, Ive always appreciated it.

Just think, I havent even touched the interior gone FI, not sure I will with this one either.

I cant help but fall in love with the deep burgundy/ wine color vinyl. The black kinda hides some of the lines I really want to see. I agree about the pics though, the guy that did them always delivers the goods!

I would stay N/A and just enjoy the car. I just think once you go FI you are always chasing reliability issues no matter how good a kit you get.

I think the black really makes the kit pop, I would just keep it since your paint is in such good condition

Hood got delivered to the shop today! Only 13 weeks of waiting, not too bad

Ill be getting them to paint it the stock black but leaving the fins, behind the vents, CF. Im not a fan of large sheets of CF. The weave isnt super appealing to me when it covers a large area. I like those HINTS of CF.

Anyways, this should be the last piece Ill put on the exterior, aside from potentially wrapping it next summer.
