Ok, so I have been lurking and learning from the forum for about 3 months now (1 month as a member). I have seen some great build threads so I have decided to start my own. But first I will give you a bit of my auto history just for fun.

In 1999 I purchased a Black Mitsubishi Eclipse GS OZ edition. This was the first car I really gave me the mod bug. I modded it with a number of bolts-ons including CBE, Test pipe, intake, header,coilovers, strut braces, wheels, etc.


Only picture I can find at the moment.

I really liked this car but after 5 years and 100K miles I needed to change it up. So I decided to purchase a 2006 Suzuka blue Honda S2000, a car I had admired since high school. I modified this car pretty heavily.





I loved the S2000 but I came to a cross road. Either I was going FI with the S2000 or look for a more powerful car. So I started researching and talking to friends about my pending plans. Not even a month later I had a good friend make me a great offer on the S2000. The decision was made a new car was in the cards. I decided on either a 2010 Grand Sport Corvette 1lt or a 2010 Touring/Sport 370z.

On July 30th, 2010 I purchased a brand New Magnetic Black 370z Touring/Sport with floor mats, kick plates, and nav. I have named her LiZZy.











An update will be coming soon. At this moment the Z sits on jack stands waiting for it’s first mods.


My thread has kind of gotten clogged up with random conversation so I figured I would make a little catalog for those looking for certain pictures or more important posts. (remember you must be on 15 post per page setup)

UPS and Fedex have been busy in front of my house the last few days.



I'm still waiting on a few things. I will have more pictures up as the parts come out of the box and go on the car.

I have the headlights back on the car. They look sick. MRworks did a great job. I just need to give her a bath and take some pictures. Hopefully tonight! Wheels may be a while. I can't make up my mind on what tires or lug nuts I want. I'm leaning towards RE-11s in 265/35 and 305/30.

I installed the lights at 341 miles. They look sick. Here are a few quick pictures.

A few pictures to really show off the Magnetic Black color matched housing with gunmetal shrouds.

They are black. Probably won't post pictures until I get tires. Still debating between Re-11s and Ventus V12s. There is a $500 difference in price. Are the RE-11s worth an extra $500? I wish Dunlop made the star specs Z sizes. I loved them on my RE30s.
