Nice Nick, the roadster is coming along nicely. Any particular reason you went with the Gen 2 Stillen Intakes vs the G3?

Thanks!

Easier maintenance. I can't stand the thought of taking off my front bumper just to clean the air filters. This is my daily driver so I have fear of sucking in water from the front grille. Plus I have some plans for those heat shields that come with the G2s.

Replaced my parking lights with LEDs. Also replaced my vanity lights with LED bulbs. I'll take pics later.

Next step is to get some color under the hood

Thanks!

Yes definitely Just holding off for now to get some other stuff done first. I can survive on stock painted wheels for awhile. I have Test Pipes on the way (should be here today) and I'm planning to get some interior paint work done soon too. Wheels will be after that.

Wow, car looks sick. Same color as my 2012 Roadster...great choice in color by the way. Any plans to get rid of the ridiculously large antenna Nissan stocks the car with? That was the first thing I did when I got mine. Keep the pictures coming.

thanks! yeah it s a great color and i agree the antenna is an eye sore. just not on my priority list yet. I'd rather have the ugly antenna and listen to my XM then have interference. but i do have a plan for a short stub to replace it if nothing else.
