I think we can all agree it's a great choice of prizes and there is something for everyone there. We all look forward to seeing the winners choice of prize on their car!

 

Thanks to Cougar Store for supplying the prize for this great competition. Mitz will be helping with the judging so ordering loads of parts as a bribe might well help! All bribes to the 350z-uk team can be made via the Donate button!

 

Best of luck everyone and don't be afraid to enter, you have until the 20th of August to do so. Remember it's not the prize that counts, it's the glory of being the winner! :#1:

Ok so I am going to choose my matt orange wrap as my mod. The reason for this as it changes the whole look of the car and is still a pretty unique / rare thing to have. Plus I am the only 350z in the uk that has matt orange (that I am aware of) :

It used to be blade silver before and dont get me wrong, got alot of attention. But since I have added the wrap............ It gets noticed everywhere I go and people are always having a nosey at it :blush::D

Oh and the chicks seem to like it aswell :lol:

:#1: A Stubby :lol::lol:

 

Check me out !!!! I can now roll up to meets and hold my head up high :teeth:

 

A MASSIVE MASSIVE thankyou to VIK & NIXY For the best Birthday pressie I could have wished for.... Love you both xx :cloud9::yahoo::yahoo:

 

Im made up guys :blush:;)

 

As you can see below the car has been completely transformed :D The lines of the car have been sensationalised and dare I say it... I think the ZED has gained more power as there is not as much drag now B)

 

Fitting Difficulty level : Sober 1 , Hungover 8

 

Guide : The first task is to remove the old aerial, this can be tricky after a skinful the night before and I would suggest using grippers but put a towel around the base of the aerial in case you slip and damage your body work... Next bit I found particularly hard, I enlisted the help of an elderly neighbour for this !! On the end of the aerial is a screw thread, you need to line this up with where your old aerial used to be and then errm Screw it on.. (A little tip for you is 'Lefty Loosey......Righty Tighty' ) As we are putting the Aerial on, we will be opting for 'Righty Tighty'.

 

Here is the finished result.... Frightening I know :scare:B)

Vik/Nix Seriously guys im well chuffed.... Thank you dearly :blush::thumbs:

So many new parts to choose from :lol: But I've settled on this :)

 

Cosworth Plenum B)

 

After seeing the gains that the U.S guys have made with the cosworth plenum, I decided that with my pending s/c install that I should get one. It would also form the centrepiece of my 4th engine bay transformation :D Rather than leave it the standard grey or get it polished, I asked Adam@Z1 to get it painted for me in a crinkle black effect - This looks a lot lot better in the flesh than it does in my crappy pictures :lol:

Okay - I suppose I should have a go....

 

Nitrous Installation - Stealth - Installed by Abbey Motorsport - Sorry lots of pic's due to the fact it's made up of many components!!

 

Reason for modification : - MORE POWER!! :yahoo: No seriously, I wanted something a little different to the norm, i.e. Super Charger or Turbo, but at the same time keeping the install as hidden and stealthy as possible. There are two 5Ib bottles in the now modified glove box that produces an extra 75bhp at the flick of a switch. Every time I sit at the lights I feel like I'm in Fast and the Furious.... - Reach over, turn the bottle on, flip the switch check my PSI and off we go! Yeeeha!

My wheels were getting in a right state so I decided to do a quick refurb at home :)

 

I did them satin anthracite.

 

This mod is great becuase the results are so dramatic yet the costs are minimal. I spent £30 altogether.

 

 

 

Here are the results :-

I've chosen my strut bar because it was the first mod I did all by myself :teeth:

I wrapped it matt black and sprayed the Z blue to match the black and blue scheme I am going for, inside and out!!!

Here is my entry, totally unique (maybe for a reason) -

 

Centre arm rest in italian leather :teeth:

 

sdc10252m.jpg

 

Matches the interior and looks OEM I think, and before anyone asks....

 

Yes it does cover up the centre cubby, but as that only contains a 350GB Hard Drive of music which I update say once a month its not really a problem :p

 

Yes it does cover up the heated seat and hazard switches, but they are accessible as it is only fitted with velcro.

 

It really makes a difference on a long journey :thumbs:

And in 2nd position winning the goody bag was

 

Here is mine:

 

Re trimmed head lining in black, I choose this one because it was the first mod that I made my self on any car I owned.

It gives a sporty and and cousy feel to the cabin, yet it doesn't effect the feel of space

Special Mention to Jay and Ian who came joint third but didn't snag a prize unfortunately

 

 

This was such a close competition all the way through voting! It was neck and neck most of the time but Bodyboarders entry sneaked a win in the end.

 

Well done Bodyboarder and hope to see the new mod fitted soon!
