    Spacer Torqing

    So I recently bought 20mm and 25mm spacers from Torqen and I was wondering what torque spec I should tighten them to? I am going to get a torque wrench so as I don't do any over tightens and snap anything

    Bonnet Damper

    Hi all... I am thinking of getting a bonnet damper, as in my opinion it not only looks better but makes it much easier to access the engine bay!! What are the views on this one? Any experiences with it or any others recommended? T
  3. Looks like the veilside definitely... There's another type like the one I have attached below. The who owns this is in the UK but not sure if it is the same spoiler. She has a stunning looking car. Kudos to her!

    I didn't see this topic before I posted in FAQ, perhaps the mods can delete, and I'll piggy back off this if that's easier? I'm looking for the following 'wang'. Does anyone know what it is called or anything? Its not a Nismo v2 as it is slightly different
  5. Hi all... I am looking to see if anyone knows what this spoiler is called, where it can be bought and anything about it... I am very interested in this addition for my blue baby. It has a carbon top, which is not perfectly straight, but dips down the middle slightly. and has blue on the sides and bottom. Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks in advance, Kaikora
  6. Not much has really been happening since getting the car. Have had a lot of fun driving it and learning more. Took it to Horsham Developments a couple of weeks ago to do a P3 service and a general check over. They are absolutely fantastic! I cannot recommend enough. Showed me under the car so I could take some photos and also explained and showed me everything that they had done. Very pleased with the condition and looks tidy and clean underneath. To do in November/December: replace compression arm bushes To do next year (probably at service): rear break pads - maybe I’ll replace disks as well although I’m not sure yet. In the future the exhaust will need to be replaced also as it is starting to show signs of wear but should be good for a couple of years yet as I don’t drive it much and it is stored inside. Below are some more washing pictures because we all love that! On a side note I also got this: Got to support the All Blacks as I’m a Kiwi, and I’ll also be in Japan during the World Cup, AND it’s Japanese
  7. That’s great I’ll have to find this guy, definitely can’t be you I’m sure!
  8. Thanks for that, I will have a look. Gyeon stuff sounds quite interesting and I’ll check out car chem too. Gotta start somewhere, so I appreciate it
  9. So I got my 350z, thanks to all who helped me out with information. I have always enjoyed reading everyone’s build thread here so figured I might as well do one as well. I am not really sure what I want to do yet, but only time will tell. I use as a second car, and enjoy as a road car. Only had a couple of days, but the first thing to do once I had gotten it home was to give it a nice wash and de-haze the headlights! The car has done only 33k miles, is in real mint condition with no marks anywhere. A few stone chips on the bumper, and one day I will get it resprayed but for now not noticeable. I used the Meguires 2 step Headlight restorer. A lot of people recommended using toothpaste and there’s lots of good reports about it, but I had my ‘heart’ set on using the meguires stuff. It was so easy to use. I masked off the headlight and applied a bit of the liquid to the supplied brush/sander. Proceeded to brush in one direction the headlight and once I was happy with the hazey look (which gets a bit concerning at first) You wipe off any excess with a damp cloth. Finally the last step is to use the spray that is provided and voila! It clears up the headlights beautifully. Definitely recommend Meguires there! Before: During: After: You can definitely see a difference! Makes the car look a hundred times smarter! And Lastly some pictures of the car after its clean. I am a Autoglym guy, so I mainly use only their products. 1. Wash down with the hose 2. Use the snow foam (actually just use a demon foam which plugs into the hose, as my jet wash is broken at the moment) 3. Wash down with the hose again 4. Use Autoglym Shampoo and Conditioner 5. Use Autoglym UHD Shampoo, clean wheels with Autoglym wheel cleaner 6. Wash down with hose 7. Dry 8. Clay bar 9. Super Resin Polish 10. UHD Wax Finally I headed inside, and did some internal cleaning. Wiped down the leather with wipes, cleaned the dash and steering wheel and also cleaned the glass and polished the glass. So much nicer having a car that you’ve cleaned lovingly! So in the future not sure what to do really. I have lots of different ideas; Tinting, suspension, refurb alloys, air intake upgrade, radiator, REMAP, etc. So just doing some more research, taking time and enjoying as it is for now. Can’t take that smile away from me while driving. Wonder if people are looking at the car or my grin from ear to ear!!
  10. Hi all, spoken to a few people on here, and made a few topics and discussed quite a bit. Finally I have made the plunge. Got myself a 350z. 2007 Azure Blue DE Revup 33k miles Super happy with it. Drives so well, well looked after, and cannot wait to pick it up on Monday. The garage are doing an MOT on it and will fix any (if they come up) advisories. Completely unmolested, although over time I will definitely do my own modifications. I will start up a member build project so you can all follow along! I have loved reading everyones builds, very entertaining, and informative. Keep them up!
  11. That’s a good point there I hadn’t noticed. I’m sure when I drove the car it was working but I will check again when I see next time
  12. Also forgot to mention on other common problems (from what I have read) The boot opens perfectly, no double catching and the seats are in mint condition as well as all the interior. Although these two are extremely minor faults (or lack of fault should I say!)
