Nissan '12 370z GT Edition

Recommended Posts

Where is this car park? I have loads of wall papers for my PC / phone with NSX's, s2000's etc .. All in that very same car park

The position of the car gives the impression of a prowler waiting to strike.

Few more pics , updates well not many , fitted a pair of K&N filters and led sidelight bulbs , fitted the Blackvue and have been doing a lot of cleaning since a white car on these roads doesnt stay clean for long

 

Oh changed the oil as well , from 10w40 to 0w40 , many people use the thinner stuff and it circulates better when cold and helps with economy

 

Malcolm is still sending pics over as he gets around to it.

I was thinking about a plate for it , we bought CF09 RGF when we bought the superb thats the wife and my initials , meaningless to anyone else though

 

When we bought the Fabia we added CF12RGF but that scuppers the zed unless i go for an older plate

Dressing the car with personal plates does add a finishing touch no matter what p**s take some forums take...... I was SO, so lucky when i bought the Lotus because it came with J4 TBO..... A personal plate meaning Turbo but since my name is Tony Bones it gave me a wobbly head when people thought it was a personal plate :D

Completely agree, my 360 didn't look right with the standard plates on, now looks much better with my private plate which just has 4 digits on it :)

Progress has been slow to non-existent recently what with the flooding, but went to a modding day with the Nissansportz club yesterday

 

Finally fitted my GTR start button, got to borrow the latest maps for the sat nav and plasti-dipped the badges

 

We were shoe horned in but it was a great day

Met a guy with the same model as me and we plasti dipped his badges black. I did mine white but removed it pretty quickly , not sure about the black either

Looking good, although white doesn't really show swirls anyway ;) Not looking forward to doing mine, they're terrible!!

 

What polisher did you get?

The Nissan has very soft paint it is full of RDS but much better since polishing

 

I bought a Rupes Big Foot , it has a bit more guts than my DAS-6 and managed to get some pretty severe scratches out .

I've seen those, so you think the high price tag is justified then? You not using a rotary on this car then?

No always a DA, soft paint , no paint depth gauge and rotary worries me too much

It looks better than new...... I realize your passion because when i had the Esprit it had to look top dollar but it weighs heavy on the head keeping it that way, well it did for me anyway.

 

Needless to say she and i assume it is a she looks stunning B)

Lovely work, white is probably easier to hide swirls but after a detail the pearl must look fantastic in the sun!

I don't know if I could go back to the vibrations from a DA. I'll give it a go with the rotary and just use a finishing polish first, see how soft Honda paint really is!

The big foot is pretty smooth , I can't achieve the same effect with a rotary

I was looking up this bigfoot thing and it has so many rave reviews as the best thing ever - even the miracle detail guy uses it and swears by it. I haven't caught the detailing bug so wouldn't invest so much money on a product I might not use very much but if I were to this seems like the one to get!

 

As an example this is an amazing transformation!
