I am by no means affiliated with these guys, but my paddles need some sorting out as well. I've been thinking of picking up a pair of these and thought i'd pass this along to you as well since it's an easy cover up. https://www.shiftkoncepts.com/collec...addle-shifters

I have seen variations of these while I was looking for paddles. Love the idea of them but Iím not too much of a fan of the look of them. If I canít handle that little tear I think my next step would be looking into getting the carbon fiber extended ones from Z1 but the price of those are TOUGH.

I wanted to save everything for one big photo before I started but hey gotta share. With the new promotion things are coming in left and right and I cannot wait for the warmer weather to come around to start the work.

Ive been going back and forth on what wheels to get between aftermarket or Oem. After seeing some nice sedans coming in with the OEM sport look I knew that was kind of the road I wanted to go down. I pulled the trigger on a set of staggered coupe 19s with a nice fresh powder coat of gloss black. Love that the center cap came black as well. Will be running 245/40/19 BF Goodrich G-Force Comp 2 on all four. Black lugs are on their way to complete the look.


Can’t wait to get them mounted.

The reman Big brakes also came in and finalizing the color with the powder coater. Stop tech rotors brake pads and SS lines are being ordered in the next week or so.

Blurry pic but there are a bunch of them on the site for the remans.

I originally bought a CF spoiler off eBay but something just was not sitting well with me about it so I took a look and got an OEM sport spoiler already painted in K23. Pics of them both test fitted over chrome piece.

Would sit a little higher

Test fit over chrome trunk piece

Oem one just looks right. Also received painted mud flaps to install with the spoiler. Hoping to get the brakes and wheels on at the same time. After seeing a lot of pics of the X on some 19s I will see if I can live with the 4x4 look or ill buy swifts in the near future to be put on regardless. Also have a big package coming (I hope) soon for another upgrade ill wait to post till it gets here. Headlights are on the list as well to do soon.

As the weather starts to make a turn it was time to start getting stuff on the car.

First up was the OEM Sport Spoiler which I originally got quoted $150 for install and said screw it I’ll do it myself since I was going to an event the following day I wanted it on. Also debadged the trunk and the fuji is currently getting painted gloss black to get rid of the plastidip look. Install was easier then I thought with all the templates.


Next I had to bring the car in for service but also when scheduling my appointment I found a deal I couldn’t pass up. I was originally thinking of going with the BF Goodrich comp 2 tires but when I saw my Infiniti dealer was running a promo buy 3 get the 4th tire for $1 I had to take a look. They were offering the Pilot Super Sports on this deal and I couldn’t pass up getting them for the price. I booked my service and bought the tires, tried going staggered but they unfortunately didnt have the sizes I needed so I went with the standard 245/40/19 square setup all around. While the car was getting the wheels done they also installed my mud guards for me for $30 since it was already on the lift. I dont have any ramps or jack stands so install of the mudguards would have been a little bit tricky so $30 for those was an easy done deal.

Here she is after picking her up yesterday. Wheel gap is killing me so swifts are going on next the brakes are going to have to wait. Ideally I would love to the swifts and brakes at the same time but I still cant come to a final color for the brakes. Hasn’t been the best weather lately but tomorrow is supposed to be nice so I can get some more pictures of her tomorrow.

As for the package I was waiting for finally arrived and will be done after the brakes and headlights are finished.

Spent the weekend with a good cleaning and getting ready for UC3 on Sunday. Also got some new camera battlers in finally so I was able to get the DSLR back out and have some fun shooting small things this weekend.

First was able to finally get the interior vacuumed up and cleaned. This allowed me to finally put on my knock off sport pedals. The gas pedal slips over the current gas pedal. Brake pedal has to be removed then put back on and the dead pedal is switched too.

does your deadpedal just glue onto the factory one? or do oyu have to drill it or something? I got a similar set a while ago but I never got around to installing the dead pedal cause it just guess on and I wasn't confident in it staying put...mind you my footwell has never been nearly as clean as yours

haha my footwell only stayed this clean until I went to a show the following day. Luckily I have weather tech mats so they catch a lot but still stuff gets underneath. The instructions told me it was a direct swap but it also came with double sided tape on the whole back so instead of taking off some door trim to get access to taking the oem one off I cleaned it rubbed some rubbing alcohol on it to prep and then just stuck the sport one on top. Holding pretty well so far over the last couple days.

Oh that sounds exactly like the one I got, I guess i'll get out the rubbing alcohol and give it a shot

Decided to tackle my calipers today. Bought the red powder coated remand and knew I wanted to change the color. Was originally going to have them re powder coated but just recently got a puppy and decided to do some more DIY stuff. Did some research and found a rattle can paint that would give me the same look and had at it today. Only got the rear ones done today as the weight of the fronts were and issue hanging and one fell on the last color coat so I gave up out of frustration. Will return next weekend probably.
