When you did the grille did it look cheap at all when finished? Mine has a horrible amount of chips in it and I was thinking about spraying it too. Nice progress though, I am in the same boat and need some black tint to tie everything together. Sick IS!
Thanks a lot dude! Im in love with my car lol. I plastidipped the grille only temporarily to go with my theme until i get my altezza grille. The dip honestly isn't holding up that great on the wheels and the grille, it's good for a temporary solution, not good for longevity though.


Also update, i have a trd rep lip on the way, then paint for the bumper and lip of course.
Next is my altezza grille, and wheels when I come across an awesome deal.

Most definitely, I'm only gonna rock it til next Friday then I'll be taking it off when I leave for ColoRADo. Then when I come back I will be repainting the bumper and lip, and finally finishing my fogs haha.

The lip is literally only hanging on by two zipties and the fact that it hugs my bumper pretty nicely, yes you read it right IM A RISK TAKER

Hey dude, I just now saw your progress thread. My MB Battles were $638 w/ valvestems and hubcentric rings out the door brand new, no charge for tax or shipping.

not thread jacking, but to give you an idea of what it'd look like:

..discounttiresdirect.com? (not poking fun, actual question lol).

i actually really like the look of the battles on your car but i'm having trouble picturing them in with my GGP. i only find them in bronze and gunmetal n i'm not sure i like that look.

Update!

First off I'm a complete amateur when it comes to turning wrenches, before today the most involving things I've done is install my headed, Coilovers and put a plenum spacer in my friends 350z. Today I decided to attack my spark plugs, as I've been having some misfiring at 123k.

Being a total newbie I got the DIY from Hiroshima (which was awesome) and I knocked it out in a mere 2 hours after work, at the cost of my thumb nail breaking in half lol. I discovered though that I have a valve cover gasket leak and the three rear plugs were drenched in oil kinda disappointing. But I put everything back together and she fired right up )) very proud of myself haha. Idles smooth at lights now and accelerates much more velvety.

So now I have to do my valve cover gasket, if anyone could point me in the right direction that would be awesome (though when I get home I'll search it up anyways).

With love, tallzac

Car died today, while I'm already running late for exams. Had to push into a gas station parking lot and run a mile to my friends work so he could drive me to school. Slapped that exam like the bitch it was, now I need a ride......

Got a code for ignition coil, and p0717 which I believe is the speed sensor. I figure the ignition coil code is one of the clips that broke when the little plastic piece fell out, still clipped in fine though. The other code is new to me. Whatevss
