Welcome to my small corner of the370z forum.

I have finally started getting stuff done this year and decided it would be a good time to start a build thread. To help me keep track of what I have done so far and see where things go from here.

I bought the car late February 2012. It's a 2012 Pearl White Touring with Sport and Nav.

Current look:




Current mods:

Engine & Drivetrain
Fast Intentions TDX 18" SS
Berk HFC
Takeda Stage 2

Wheels/Tires/Brakes/Suspension
Forgestar F14 F Zero Blue
Kics Project R40 NeoChro
Bridgestone Potenza S04 255/35/19 and 285/35/19 on F14's
Hankook RS-3 285/35/18 on Enkei NT03+M's (track setup)
Fortune Auto 500 w/ Swift upgrade
Eibach front and rear swaybars
SPL front and rear camber kit with toe bolts
Carbotech XP10/XP8
SS brake lines
Motul 5.1 Brake Fluid

Interior/Exterior
Aerojacket CF Type-M spoilier
Aerojacket CF Side Blades
Stillen splitter
Nismo Ti shift knob
Z-Speed Under Shroud (Silver)
Z1 Hood Struts
Headlight Boomerang Vinyl

Wish List
Z1 400hp package or BOOST!

Here was the night I picked the Z up at the dealer. Took all day on a Saturday to secure the deal. I went to just look and ended up trading my beloved Toyota Tacoma in on this....enough jibba jabba on to the pics.

Next came the Fast Intentions TDX 18" SS with Berk HFC. This really woke the car up. Love that sound.


Next was the Swift springs, SPC rear camber kit with toe bolts and Powertrix spacers 20mm all 4 corners


Then I got bored and decided to mess around with the plastidip stuff everyone has been using. Ghosted the Nissan emblems.




Then came ZdayZ X




After chasing that 350Z around all weekend I wanted to start working more on my suspension so ordered Eibach sway bars when I got back.


Then I ordered and prepped the Stillen Splitter with a piece of aluminum L bar to prevent the sagging issue. Hoping to get it installed on Sept. 7.


Other than that I have a few more things waiting to be installed before Z Nats. Upgrading the brakes at least a little bit for the track day and lugs waiting on the new wheels. And just got the Zspeed undershroud in this week ready to be installed.

I took the Z out after installing all the new parts and did a quick photoshoot. I hope to get a better photoshoot in the upcoming few weeks with it all cleaned up. Hope you enjoy the quick shots I took today.

Thanks man. Your build is insane! I only wish I could do something like that. Yours was also one of the ones that help me choose on which wheels to get. My F14's should be here next week or so. Can't wait. Just in time hopefully to get them mounted and the splitter installed.

You will love them brother! I was going to get a big name JDM wheel just to stick with the theme of the car, but nothing looks as good as these IMO. Plus these were hella cheap in comparison.

They look great on your car. The super deep concave is insane. Cant beat the price either in comparison to the big name JDM wheels.

Yea the 12 came with one factory. Going to see how it holds up at Barber. I didnt have any issues at the Dragon or Skyway so we'll see.

What dont like the blue tape? Lol. Its to prevent rock chips on the front end from the trip there and back plus while following anyone during spirited runs on the Dragon etc. I still got one on my passenger mirror and roof.

It's not about being cute. It is about protecting the super thin Nissan paint we are blessed with on our Z's or any car you care about for that matter.
