I've been on the org for a long time now and have seen a lot of cool cars, but I can still be surprised by what some people can create.

JNCoRacer, I'm jealous of your fogs and side skirts!
Shift_Max, those seats are awesome!
chrome91, I need that harness bar for my car!
Kevlo,
Jon, you have been a tremendous asset to the suspension crowd on this site and I learned a lot from you
TheArtist, your car is just fantastic
And of course, The Wizard's car is pretty much perfect

With that being said, I think I have a fair amount of rare or unusual parts on my car. Tell me what you think!

I'll start with mods that I've had over the years that I've taken off my car or sold.
-Here's my old 95 GLE with real David L tails


-I also had to remove my stage 2 LTB that was made by Matt to make room for Cattman headers, but I'm about to install a stage 1 that I just found.
-JClaw's traction bars
-Ben's rear strut mounts
-Cefiro Sport grille


-2J Racing 1st Gen Adjustable bump Steer kit custom fitted for a 4th gen

Some of the rarer things that I currently have are:
-Relocated battery
-Quaife differential (actually that trans just broke)
-245/45/17 Michelin Pilot Super Sports
-SuperPro rear trailing arm bushings
-Custom valved 9k/8k BC Racing coilovers
-Corner balanced to achieve 60.0%F/40.0%R, 50.0% L/R
-Stage 1+2 LTBs

-Nitrous and WB02 gauges w/bottle heater and activation switches (nitrous has been sold, need new gauge) in semi-discreet location
-Gunmetal colored aluminum dash kit that Shadow (IIRC) used to make, gunmetal gauge rings



Custom made Alcantara shift and e-brake boot (door panels coming soon)


Recaro Speed seat and Sparco wheel


4300 FX-R projectors in the headlights and 3000 Blazers in the fogs, from TRS and ChrisMax287


Removed three vertical bars from lower grille, smoothed, fiberglassed, painted


Oil and PS coolers (thanks Joe!)


Stage 2 Warpspeed SFCs w/stage 2 LTB


Custom fender braces welded to frame


2J Racing panhard rod conversion (1/3 on a Maxima IIRC)

I've also got a Wilwood 12.9" front BBK with 2-piece rotors and Carbotech AX-6 pads all around


FastBrakes rear BBK with 12.3" rotors


And 245/40/17 Hoosier A6s. Did I mention I auto-x the shit out of this car, and it's about to start seeing road course abuse? I'm heading to Summit Point's Shenandoah Circuit tomorrow for a track day, and I just got my Carbotech XP-8 race pads bedded in




Phew, I'm spent. I need a cigarette (and I don't even smoke). There are a lot more pictures of everything here in my build thread or in my racing results thread. I pray my car comes home in one piece tomorrow. I just installed a brand new 5th gen clutch and flywheel on Wednesday night and I need them broken in by tomorrow's race, so I'm gonna go for a drive.

That rear track bar

Wish I had that on my maxima.

My Maxima rare mods:

Shark fins on the roof



Frankencar


LR MaF


My LTB that I made fit with equal length headers, that I then broke and then fixed


I had Sub frame connectors and full 3" exhaust from y-connection on headers back, but my pictures are all going missing off photobucket some how.

Now my 6.8...Imagine what my Maxima would be like had I had more time with it. (I've had the GP longer now by a few months now)

Custom made coilovers, only 2004+ GP with them.


Custom made LCA, Solid joint (replaces front rubber bushing) and welded in bigger poly bushing.



CTS-V Calipers up front (I'm an the creator of this BBK, CTS-V Calipers, Mustang GT500 Rotors)


First 2004+ GP to do a Projector Retrofit (this is Retro #3 for me) I also relocated the turn signal up into High Beam location


My front lip is vinyl wrapped


LED doorhandles


And last but not least, I'm about to becoem the only 04+ GP with a manual, a 6 Speed no less.

Wow there's some pretty neat stuff in here.

I used to have a Stage 1 LTB, but had to remove it when I installed my headers.

Altima headers with 3" y pipe back.
Length tuned 3.5" intake & MAF


Front undertray


5MT ES Shifter bushing




That's about all I have at the moment.

Edit: i dont know what schemlly actually used but

Coroplast is the name brand but look for Corrugated Plastic Sheets. Its a pain to find because its not readily available for consumers to directly purchase. But call sign shops and ask em if you can buy a couple sheets. This is the best material to use for this.

I am working on a rear diffuser, and under body paneling also.

I used FRP. I'm thinking about making another with corrugated plastic as prophecy mentioned.

There's nothing unique about a high compression VQ35 with cams & ported heads and nitrous.

This table though...

All I can say is wow these cars are amazing. The panhard rod from a b15? Never would have thunk it. Manumatic? Are you kidding lol and all the CF looks amazing. I think Chrisman is going to be selling some side view shells and I want em even more now.

Ill post up more tomorrow when it is light out but my proudest addition to my car is my 4AT which has common mods but altogether uncommon. IMO to have a good performing 4AT is kind of rare lol:

JWT ATC


In all its glory before install about a year ago:


other mods include a level 10 valve body recalibration, higher stall speed torque converter, phantom grip LSD, and a Mishimoto transmission cooler.
