looks really nice Paul!!! I like the black SE tails on the car. Also if you do end up rubbing with the 10mm spacer I have a fender roller.

Thanks Carson. I ended up putting a 15mm on the drivers side and a 10mm on the passenger. Looks like the beam on the rear is about 5mm off! No rubbing as of yet, haven't hit any big bumps yet though.

Took the morning and rewired all the speakers to bypass the Bose amp. This has made a world of difference. I have always hated having the line converter in there and finally got around to bypassing all that. The internal amp on my Pioneer headunit is making the Kappa's sing!

Just thought I would update.

Took some new pics a little while back while cruising some back roads. Not much difference other than the car is clean.

I am really wanting to get a set of coilovers come spring. Just want to go a smidge lower.

Still thinking about going to the original 02 clear tails.

Thoughts?

Also picked up some G35 Rays 19s and put on Continental Extreme Contact DWS tires. I do have a 5mm spacer on the rear. I have a set of 10mm on my 4th gen that I might throw on to see how it looks. No rubbing with the 5mm and it looks like the 10mm might not rub either. Hopefully not. You'll also notice that the wheels are sporting Nissan center caps!!

Was all set to pull the trigger on some new Tein SS coilovers but my fun money budget got shot when my fence blew over in a wind storm we had here in MD. So I ended up using that dough to put a new fence in. But I ended up getting a set of Tein S-tech springs instead. Just a tad lower than the H-techs and the ride isn't that much different in my opinion. Maybe down the road I will revisit the coilovers, but for now these will do. From my experience on every set of springs I have installed they tend to settle so they may end up a little lower than what is shown since I put these on just the other day.

I have had the Stillen side skirts painted up and ready to go for a couple months now but was reluctant to put them on because the stock sides looked decent enough. But now with the Rays on I think putting them on is a necessity. And I also can't decide if I want to keep the 00-01 SE tails on or go back to the stock 02-03 tails. With the wheels on the tails just kind of stick out now.

Anywho, on with the updated pics...







Let me know what you think!

Paul, the car looks amazing now with the full kit and Rays. I think the 00-01 tails look pretty good, even on a lighter colored car. Personally I'd keep those over the 02-03 tails.

+1 with Rammat, great product ! and 1/2 the price of dynamat
love the infinity g35 ray 19s, the more I see it 5th gens in regards to looks really need 19" wheels nothing else really cuts it. Those wheels are awesome.

Great stuff man.

can u elaborate on how you did the whole car with the rammat? in other words did you do non typical areas or just all the standard areas?
and im not sure if u know about throwing sound dampening in the rear seat belt housings that may be the little rattle your still hearing.

I did end up sticking some foam material in the seat belt cups and it helped considerably. Not sure if they are standard areas, but I basically took out the trimming, seats, carpet, kick panels, trunk lining, rear deck and door panels. Basically everything but the headliner and stuck it to all the metal surfaces, floor board, inside the doors etc. Like I said I think I got it on everything but the headliner. I just don't think its worth the trouble to pull down the headliner and worry about getting it back in place properly. Im sure it would sound better, but its a hassle.

The s-techs don't ride bad. They are sporty but not harsh. The difference between the h-techs and the s-techs is minimal in my opinion when it comes to the ride. No bottoming out. The only gripe (and it comes with any lowered car) are the bridges and seams in the road are very noticeable. Like I said the car being lowered and the 19s are the culprit. Other than that its nice and sporty.

I am still eying a set of the SS coilovers, hopefully come spring time a set will find its way into my garage

Your car looks good. I prefer the 00/01 tails to the 02/03, especially on sterling mist.

Car looks awesome! I love the even drop; I didn't know the H-Techs made our cars look that good. Also, I love those OEM custom-fit MAXIMA rubber floor mats you have. I have a set too.

Just cleaned up the garage. Done installing and adjusting these bad boys. Not a bad install, took around 3 hours I guess. For those installing these in the future I highly recommend looking at the diagrams Tein provides. Didn't have to use some parts that I was sure I would need to keep.

Took it around for a spin and glad to report that I am not rubbing or scraping. Ride is actually smoother and less harsh then the S-techs/Illuminas.

I'll post some pics after I clean the car up a little bit. She is filthy!

All clean! Decided on tucking each tire about a half inch. Only have about 2-3 more threads available on the adjustment so I probably wont be going any lower.

Enjoy........
