Thanks!

Added custom sunshade (fits very nice).
Added 370Z valve stem covers (not sure black was a good choice)

Thanks, it was a lot of fun when it wasn't in the shop, but everything costs more.

Just re-did the interior LED replacement lights with a new orange filter glued to the top and some stacked half 3M clear bumpers in the corners to create stand-offs. Don't have the brilliant blue-white interior, but a pretty bright orange one now. Looks nice.

Added the inside air filter - not too bad with the excellent DYI, though the air flow felt a little lessened at first.

Did another penny install after TSB new springs stopped lifting.

Installed kellyefields hood dampners kit.

Forgot to mention got winter all season tires (Continental DWS) and swapped back to RE050 for summer.

Did Griot's leather conditioner on seats, steering wheel, and some Leather interior scent.
