Adam’s Project Z33: Update – NISMO Garage Door Moulding

9 May

Haven’t done an update on my car in a bit, so figured it was time. Last weekend I actually got to drive the car with the ITB’s! Wasn’t a long drive, only about 20 minutes, but it felt good to take her out for a spin after laying dormant the past 5 months. More to come soon as we get the tuning done, etc. Fingers crossed it nets a gain over what I had previously!

Since Shaun’s car left today and we’ve got more room now, I was able to do some minor work to my car. We’ve actually been doing quite a bit to the car lately, trying to get the ITB setup all done. In preparation we swapped over to the ’07 + radiator support, since it has dual inlets (one per side) to help feed them some cooler air. I also ditched the UTEC in favor of a Haltech. At some point I’ll get to install the cool Racepak dash cluster, but I have a feeling that’s still a few months off right now.

I’ll say this much – I must be a total NISMO whore, because I actually forked over the $ to buy the NISMO lower “guard” for my front bumper. It’s basically a long, $60 piece of what is effectively garage door moulding, that you can buy at any hardware store. Except this comes in a NISMO bag with some sort of certificate of authenticity. I guess that’s so you can flash it to people to prove you didn’t go the Home Depot route. Kwame ordered one up for his car and said I should get one for myself – so I did, without realizing I could have done this way cheaper, but so it goes. I really have no practical purpose for it. As low as my car is, this front bumper seems a touch longer than others, so I just don’t have the issues over speed bumps that I did before. I just wanted some black contrast at the bottom of the bumper. I had a lip on the car this time last year that took me all day to mold into shape, and it looked awesome. But it was too damn low and I kept having to nurse it around. This piece is not nearly as tall, and it’s flexible, so it should do well.

I cannot wait for this phase of things to be done so I can enjoy her again!

Shaun’s Car is on the Move!

9 May

FINALLY!!!!! Today she finally left the shop, and now resides at the body shop that is going to fit and paint the Amuse Superleggera kit! Some quick shots of it being loaded onto the tow truck. He seems sorta blase about it, but Kwame and I are stocked to see this thing finished. As much as I love this car, and Shaun’s a close friend, it’s really good to have to space back
