Well done mate.  Those wheels can be really expensive.

I put my w brace on the car today along with the rear ties. Its not quite how I want it just yet but fitment was no problem. I've also gone for function over form by using epoxy mastic chassis paint followed by stoneguard. Next stop is definitely a custom exhaust. 

 

Anyway here are a few photos.

I needed spacers at the front so knocked up these using sheet ally.

I gave mine a clean (very easy with all the fresh wax, etc.) and then took it out for a drive just for the hell of it.  It's been a while since I took a pleasure trip for no reason and thoroughly enjoyed finding new roads and getting lost (can you get lost when you've no destination?)

 

I stopped at the top of our road for some milk and a few cans of cold Guinness (original, none of that fancy widget stuff for me!) and couldn't help but take this gratuitous Z pic :teeth:

Looking good, Paul.

If I didn't know better - and talking about shrinking Zeds - I would have believed that was the cover image of a scale model of a 370Z rather than the real thing. And a really good recreation too - particularly if the model shop in the background sells Guinness. :thumbs:

2007 350Z (my second Zed) - When you give up driving, you’re not going to look back wistfully on the car you owned with the nicest dashboard top or speaker grilles. You’re going to remember a car for its excitement and how it made you feel.
2011 Yaris 1.33 (my third Yaris) - With an extra 30cc and an extra gear it's become the S-Class of small cars.  Far less pretentious though.

Where did "this" come from; did you keep a full size in the boot? Or is that a space saver?

 

PS. Who did your calipers - or is that OEM?

Optional extras: Dynamic pack, black styling pack, Audi sound system, cruise control, reversing camera, advanced key, electric folding body coloured mirrors, electrically adjustable lumbar support and non smokers pack.
2012 Pearl White 370Z GT Edition (manual) - Invidia Gemini catback exhaust with burnt titanium rolled tips, Stillen Gen 3 Intake Kit, UpRev, 15mm Eibach spacers, Satin Black painted bumpers, Black 'Z' badges, removal of GT Edition stripes - GONE TO A NEW OWNER WITHIN THE CLUB BUT WILL BE VERY FONDLY REMEMBERED.

Calipers OEM (its a nismo), and the space saver is an item available across the world, but not the UK.

I did a topic on this about 4 years ago, but its gone now as I used the 'photobucket' system back then.

It all fits in the boot - including the jack, handle & wheelbrace. The Bose subwoofer just fits in the wheel.

You certainly did!  It was a most excellent post :thumbs:

Ah, didn't realise it was a Nismo - was going to ask you where you had them done lol.

 

I miss the space savers, flippin cans of goo have so many disadvantages (other than space of course).

So today was the inagural meeting of the "Not quite OCD" car detailing club (Northants), when I met up with Gasitup to do a bit of work on the cars ahead of Sunday although I basically managed to steal most of Gasitups time.

 

One thing we both used that was very effective andf I'm surprised I've not seen it mentioned before, can't remember the name of this particular variety but you can see a can near the tape in the last pic - Amazing stuff, it made everything look a whole lot better...

Now that's my kind of cleaning product chaps may I suggest you don't use it sparingly
