Post what makes your Maxima unique, i.e. Custom Parts / Fabrication / Rare Pieces?

Ok guys. Here's your chance to share what makes your Maxima unique. Sometimes we seek out ultra rare parts (Warpspeed tubular subframe connectors anyone?), or even fabricate custom pieces to achieve our goal and get the look or performance we want.

And so I thought it would be cool to get a thread going of some of the more custom and/or unique pieces that make our Maxima special and one-of-a-kind to us.

I'll go first

Does my 7-year-old son's sticker collection on the rear passenger window qualify for making my car unique?

Its funny you mentioned WSP SFC's. I've had a set laying around since 05-06. They are from drewm's car. Its one mod I just never seemed to install.

I've been the pioneer for mods like AE cluch, trailing arm bushings, 9007 lights, co founder of the LudaLip LOL! Im also one of the few with CSK.

My car is filled with OEM upgrades such as I30 limited leather seats & ebrake handle. AE VLSD, clutch, pedals, shift ****, 99 digital ACC & SE-L gauge cluster, 00-01 front brakes. It's not flashy but that's how I like it. I still have piles of OEM parts to put on.

I also have a thing for Stillen. Too bad I sold my camber plates, FSTB, & RSTB. Those camber plates were very rare. I should have held onto them. So were the Motivational Engineering rear mounts that I also sold.

i have a couple of items as well, the whole picture in my head of how i want it to be as an end result is unique (in the maxima world) but funds dont permit it at the moment. so far there are some unique/different mods posted, hopefully this doesnt turn into another "post pics of your maxima" thread :/

I would seriously pay you to do me some CF parts like this... I have tried, but it never comes out that good.

Custom Shift boot. I really need to take it off and get some close up pictures. It has awesome details that really make it one of a kind. I'd also have to say none pillar mounted gauges. Almost every max I see has Pillar mounted gauges.

Just in the interior:

Authentic Japan Bride Gias Seats
Defi gauges
Momo Steering wheel
Full i30 interior including dash, door panels, rear seats with headrest, door handles
5.5 gen gauge cluster
5.5 gen parking brake handle
6 speed if that counts as interior

Excuse the ripped shift boot and parking brake. Those are next to go.
