Loving the truck. 1100lbs for tq is awesome. Spins 37x13.50’s from a roll.

Been upgrading it mostly. Redid my seats in leather myself with a Katzkin kit with warmers, leds here and there and some paint matched mirrors covers, not shown in the pic. Also remote start. It’s basically everything I need and then some.

But unfortunately, the eclipse is gone. Listed and sold it in a day for 7500. Was a fair deal since I had as much in parts. Will probably regret it.

I did however pick up a one owner, little old man, driven Z. 04 Roadster Touring Auto with 110k miles.
It’s not perfect. The front bumper needs a resorts from rock chips. And I can’t stand the chrome wheels. It does have a newer top and the cleanest interior I’ve seen on a Z. Usually, especially around Albuquerque, they’re dirty and trashed. The leather doesn’t age well. The douches who get these usually end up stinking them up with vape and weed.

I picked this one up for 6500. Aside from cleanliness and lower miles, it seemed like it was maintained in general. The handicap plates were very convincing LOL. The guy said he couldn’t drive it anymore. The bushings on these cars are notoriously junk. I ordered control arms and a door handle before even picking the car up. It’s in Arizona. I have to fly over and pick it up from a relatives house and drive it back. I’ve shipped the parts to them so I can install before driving back if needed. If I can get away with doing the work in my own garage- I’ll wait. Though it is a 6 hour drive… so idk.

I have a set of RPF1 reps in 18x9.5 and 18x10.5 in my eBay cart.

Here’s a couple of images of set ups I’ve found and tried to mock up in the split view.

I like 17s for their performance and tire pricing. 18s feel more appropriate for a convertible and flashy color.

I PLAN to keep this more modest. It’s auto so there’s that. I wanted something my wife can drive also. We plan on getting rid of her RDX when the Z is home. She has a Bronco on preorder. We can save a few payments for 3-4 months having only the Z and F250. I also have my bike. Plus she loves the truck as much as i do. I plan on the Z more for me as the weather is getting better and I don’t intend to put the top up often LOL.

Plans for the Z:
-shift kit
-370z 4.0 rear end with LSD
-mild bolt ons
-wheels and tires (first)

Looking up old pics and thought I would post a Z update

Got my wheels and tires on. RPF1s and some chinese tires LOL . Too wide to break loose at stock power levels.

18x9.5 front 245/35r18 , 18x10.5 275/35r18

Got some Tein coilovers to install

Ported and polished intake manifolds and added the infamous plenum spacer (5/16)

New radio and backup camera

Carbon “intake duct”

Auto trans Cooler And some maintenance.

It’s a fun project. Best part is the wife loves it.
