    Looks awesome, these always remind me of someone wearing a cap. 
    This is heaps cheaper than a US company was asking.  At 300ish its worth a shot. 
    Put up some photos of it once you've finished finessesing.

    My attempt at fitting it would involve a hammer ,blue tack and no more nails

    Spoiler is from Ebay, currently on special. It does look fantastic, and it's a real carbon fibre, not a vinyl wrap.. Regarding fine adjustments, there is a concern that small fibres may cause complications similar to those of asbestos so I'm getting a full face mask and disposable overalls.

    Looks a pretty damn close fit and so much better than the stock spoiler. Work wheels look great too, very tastefull mods. Got a link to where you ordered your  spoiler from?
  9. paracin added a post in a topic Carbon Fibre Ducktail   

    It's a no-name brand, but the quality of workmanship is pretty good. I don't see many classic hand-laid-carbon-fibre faults. It didn't come with any instructions, screws, tape or paper templates.
    I don't recommend fitting it yourself as it is really time consuming for a beginner (me). But I already started so...
    OK, trial fitting (screws only). Middle part fits well, the RHS needs minor adjustment (2-4mm) and the LHS needs probably at least several mm. The problem is that it needs to be ground exactly where one of the 4 main screws is. I'll try on the weekend.

    New Speedo
    I've seen prettier but at least shes accurate and readable. would eventually like to make up another bracket or find a better place to mount it so its not tilted like that but it works. Before this i was using one of those ones that reflect off the windshield but the steep rake of the glass made it a little blurry which annoyed me. gauge is an AUTOOL X-60 off ebay, connects to the OBD port, is programmable and can also be use to read and clear codes. shuts off automatically so it can be left plugged in with minimal drain. will see how it goes. Unfortunately its a lot dimmer than id like. Yes im in a KFC drivethrough XD

    Very interested in hearing how you get on. I’m interested in getting a ducktail spoiler but only if it fits as good as Oem. Which make of ducktail did you go for ? You clearly have far more patience than me as I would have given up after five minutes and took the car to a body shop. Good luck and don’t be shy with pics 
    p.s I’m sure they’re called “Duckbill” not Ducktail

    Love a nice ducktail, I'm sure the effort will be worth it. Don't forget to post pics of the finished job!

    Carbon Fibre Ducktail
    I always preferred ducktails to monstrous wings, so my Zed is about to get a new carbon fibre tail. 

    There is no weight saving to speak off, carbon fibre is 1.900kg versus standard 2.050kg spoiler, but compare the sizes!

    Honestly don’t want to bore anyone with details, there is so much information already on the net, but let me tell you this: you have to be a hardcore masochist to attempt to do this yourself. I heard that removing the old spoiler would be painful and realised quickly that it was an understatement . But removal of the double sided tape is nothing short of excruciating. Acetone, citrus oil, plastic scrapper and fingertips – nothing works! Well, it (sort of) does, but is so slow that I’m having second thoughts (too late).

    I hope to find some time in the next week or so to finish it. Will keep you posted, of course.

    Much appreciated dude, i did see something about Cougar posted here but not to this detail - thanks for posting
    i've dropped them an email and will see what's on offer
    anyone else know of any shops/kits?
  15. ChocSoldier added a post in a topic Melbourne Forced Induction workshop options   

    Cougar Motorsports were doing the AAM kit installed for 14.3k. Don't know anything about them though or if it's still valid.

    Melbourne Forced Induction workshop options
    Hey all,
    tried searching but havent really found any recent info on options for FI around melbourne for my 370
    I know there is Revzone, and I've had a long chat around options and costs, etc. but would like to see if theres any other options around town - not that there is any issues with Revzone, they look to be an awesome shop...
    But, I do like to make sure I've done my research before going down a pricey route
    Superchargers - has everyone just purchased a supercharger kit direct and fitted it themselves - from where??? Topgunz modified kit looks good - anyone from here on this?
    Twin turbo options, given the engine comes out this doesnt look like one I can do myself, what shops around town are there? 
    Or potentially TT kits that can be purchased separate and fitted by a workshop? I understand there was some fab needed for the AAM RHD kit mentioned on this forum
    I come from a 180sx/Skyline background so all the mod work (turbos, intercoolers, injectors, exhausts, etc.) have been done by me and the tune always a shop
    This is my first post, soz if i've put this in the wrong section, or this info is sitting somewhere
    cheers

    Tops Online. They also sell the bungee cord kit to go with it. I sent them an email and the kit comes with instructions.

    Which website did you find?
  20. Cam added a post in a topic 370z soft top replacement   

    It probably is but I'm pretty particular about my toys. I ended up finding an aftermarket top in the states for about 1500 delivered and Nissan Australia will do the oem top for 3000 installed. That's actually not bad for a genuine lid - they wanted 18000 for the top on my old 350 because they wanted to replace the whole mechanism so I went aftermarket and did it myself. 3000 is OK. At least then I'll have warranty on the kit and the install.

    I'm not an expert in soft tops, but is the little tear fixable?
  22. dodgybugga added a post in a topic 2010 370z Bluetooth Music Stream   

    To be honest, 370zs are so noisy while driving, sound quality isnt really an issue. The noise from the car is so loud that you would lose any of the delicate notes from anything playing on even the best sound system. The Coolstream Duo/Navdy combination is working brilliantly now since some very intelligent people have hacked the Navdy firmware and App since the company disappeared. Works with voice recognition and also has a steering wheel mounted jog dial which works nicely. Literally the best option out there that I have seen. You just need to upgrade to the latest software for everything to work. Lookup Navdy on reddit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ive been thinking some more and I’m now considering mounting a mechless headunit in the glovebox and just running an rca line out to piggy back into the factory system aux. it kills a few birds with one stone - Bluetooth, better phone, multi band equaliser, cheap and won’t ruin the factory look. The glovebox is too small to be useful for storage but I think a single din headunit would fit nicely in there and will require minimal wiring. It’ll also free up the centre console compartment and the 12v socket for phone charging. I have an old head unit lying around somewhere so I can see how it looks and play around with a faceplate designbefore I commit to it.

    There's not enough room behind just the screen unfortunately. Mounting a tablet is your best bet of keeping the A/C etc. One of the Sydney guys is trying to mount an iPad Mini so we'll see how that goes, but it'd likely be via Bluetooth to the AUX.

    I was looking into sourcing a U.S. base model system (fascia, cubby, and the A/C controls), but that's no longer happening. The defroster hasn't been figured out yet (you need to re-wire the A/C controls to accept the base dials, I was thinking of wiring in the plug needed in-line so you have both in case you ever want to switch back)
