Suggestions to do up my Z

3 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hey guys,

So I'm a newbie at this whole car enthusiast thing and in the last year I developed this massive love for a Z33 roadster - which I finally and eventually bought. Stock as a rock no mods what so ever (except for the head unit I just finished putting in) 

Now I have no clue where to start to do it up.

Wanting to start with a new exhaust, coilovers and rims... any suggestions please... help a sister out ?

You need to work out what your objectives are, cosmetic or performance, and what sort of budget you want to allocate (remember it's mostly money down the drain, but as long as you enjoy the outcome it's all good).

Things like coil overs are only "needed" for track work or lowering the car - I never recommend lowering Z's because it's a pain scraping on driveways all the time (and the wheel stop in shopping center car parks), the Z is already low.

Type "350Z images" into google - that will give you many images of what others have done, find something that appeals to you.

Low Z's barely scrape on anything! They have short overhangs at both ends and they're perfect for slamming, just choose your driveway carefully and don't hit the wheel stops at the end of car parks. I'm fairly low and not on coilovers, I agree they're overkill for the street.

Most people chuck and exhaust and air filter on as their first mods, or springs/coilovers and all the bullshit that goes along with it (camber arms etc), or both. Basically your imagination (and wallet) is the limit with these cars, there is so much available off the shelf.

      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. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/CARBON-FIBER-CS-TYPE-N-STYLE-TRUNK-WING-REAR-SPOILER-FOR-NISSAN-370Z/262399870438

      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?

      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.
