[xnickx]'s SXE10

Postby xnickx » Tue Nov 02, 2010 12:17 am

As asked by many, here is my build journal from the ACNZ Forums (hidden to Std members unfortunately)
All just copied and pasted

Since others have, though I'ld do one too.

In about August 2005 I took ownership of a Blue 1998 RS200Z 6MT, with 65,xxxkms from a former VIP member (Ridgy - a very silent member on the forums)
It was kit-less, had all the Z-Spec usuals like tints etc and was completly stock (except the mesh grill), literally a pure virgin hehe.
Here is a pretty early pic of the car when I took it for a roadie end of 05.
Image

Another random pic when xnickx was still a virgin (and still BRC992):
Image

Then followed my first mod for the car:
-Pioneer TSW-306DVC Sub-woofer:
Image

-Kenwood KAC8151 amp.
Image

I had these wired up to the stock headunit at the time, which shat itself in no time at all, then came the Alpine CDE-9845 headunit:
Image

Also got my Cat removed at around this time which now provides this nice (unique) tone:

Then came the whole issue with NorthShore Toyota (no need to elaborate...) but finally got my

Image

Image

-Then came the callipers, shaved it back to remove the ugly ridge:
Image

-Then paint and calliper stickers via ACNZ:
Image

Oh and another pic worth posting is when I got my car hand washed by the BP girls at BigBoysToys 2005 hehe:
Image

Then managed to get an Elegance Lip, which I never fitted or got painted and is now in good hands with Reg (Bad1):
Image

After that came my Xenon lighting, replaced all (low, high and fogs) with Xenon bulbs. Right after I got these I fitted my [XNICKX] plate, dont know why I left it for so long though...
(no need for pic as its my avatar).

Also managed to save up enough to get me a sweet deal on a full new set of Direzza DZ101s:
Image
Which I still think its better then my Eagle F1 GSD3s, and my Toyo T1Ss.
Tried Pirelli P-Zero and P6000, they were just more for the name then anything else I reckon...

Then I get to today, where Im more just maintaining the car and trying to save up for more mods, here is a anyway taken today:
Image



Future of [XNICKX]?
Lets wait and find out :P

Dont worry this page wont get updated as fast as others hehe.

Some more minor bling:
TRD Oil Cap
Image

TRD Rad Cap
Image

TRD Fuel Cap
Image

Now looking at upgrading braking side of things.
Got Bendix GCTs for the front, waiting for the rears to come first before fitting.
Will be bleeding the brakes and fill with DOT 5.1 Lucas Fluid at the same time.
Thought about slotted rotors etc, but that will have to be a few months away... DBA rotors are going to be about $1000 on all 4s.

Another small update.

The OBX Adjustables were a bit soft for my driving, so instead I swapped them for 2nd hand Bridgestone NPG Adjustables:
Image
(Non camber adjustable, only height)

Did a quick Google of Bridgestong NPG and apparently they are hardcore JDM... First time Ive ever heard of them:

They cant be bad if GTR drivers reckon they are better then Cusco and Teins :D

Seems like people also want to find out more about them:

Ive actually had a full lip kit (Genuine Eurou Type 2 from Japan - even came with the Eurou instructions and bolts etc LOL) for over 12 months!

Never posted it here as I never got it painted and looks like Im not going to anymore, loving the low ride instead and Im getting crazy scrapes now as is anyway.
Check out how much lower the front lip is from the factory bumper... Bit too low for me now.

For Sale Link here:

Here are some pics though!

(these pics must have been taken ages ago, no eyelids, stock ride height, no JDM Dark taillights, no carbon boot trim etc)

A little present for myself/xnickx.

18" DTM RS GT (1.5" dish) - Black with Machined Lip.
Image
Why?
Trying to go for a Black and Blue theme, and the machined lip just looks awsome.

Pic from recent meet:

After painting the fogs to suit the black headlamps:
