Yep, sadly pretty common.

05 Infiniti G35 Sedan
Instead of using the metra kit to fix the audio issues and since i had a stereo unit lying around...I decided to install it by removing the navigation dvd receiver and using its place for the stereo. Even though the AC buttons don't work, i'm not too bothered by it as its on auto anyways. The fitment is perfect, the only thing that bugs me is the "door" panel which always has to stay open. Will get to removing that someday...

So this is my first awd car, and I decided to swap my springs and wheels (which I've done numerous times on other vehicles). Sadly this turned into a 2 day ordeal and I ended up damaging a cv boot and a strut lol


But atleast it looks good right? Lmao

I'll start searching for a diy cv axle install on an awd now lls

Looks good! There's a good axle removal diy for the first get on here somewhere but the fsm covered it pretty well too. It's only a few fasteners and as long as they come apart for you, it's no problem. You'll be good at it after one or two times. I lowered my 06x and tore several boots afterward and had various different problems with ball joints and end links and struts and bearings etc. I can get mine apart pretty quickly now.

Found an un-torn driver's seat for my car. Its out of a 2006. Color match isn't 100% perfect but close enough. May go back for the passenger seat since the headrest is larger on the newer seat and while the passenger seat isn't cracking yet, it appears inevitable. The wrecking yard only wanted $100. The seat isn't perfect but it's by far the best I've found in a couple years of looking. I have a friend who does interior repair, probably have him redye the bolsters.

It's usually not as expensive as people think to have seats reupholstered and as long as they color match the leather you usually end up with basically brand new seats for around $250-$350 per seat. Most of the leather will be reused because it's not a wear item, they just unstitch the bad sections and use them as a template for the new. Toss in new foam (you can pick density too which is cool) and you're G2G.

Not around here unfortunately. Good work is $400-600 a seat. Had enough wear it would have been a full recover job. It's a 15 year old car, didn't have to be 100% perfect IMO.

Some ugly worn out parts

Got around to some replacing some wear items like belts and end links this past week. Old belts were pretty cracked, one rear end link completely snapped while I was trying to loosen the bolts, and my driver side ball joint had literally exploded open. Pressed in new front lower ball joints from Z1 with no issues.

I don't envy members here who live up north and have to seal with the corrosion that comes with harsh winter road treatments. I live in a coastal town in south Texas and it happens here a bit but not on the scale you all have to deal with. Felt good to fix that sh*t didn't it!

Some more ugly worn out parts!

Well I managed to snap both my rear lower control arm eccentric bolts while installing unrevised z suspension all around. Gotta love some rust that PB blaster canít even get through. Luckily the infiniti dealer 10 min away had these in stock.


Out with the old (145k)... $80 z suspension has 60k and will do for now.


Was looking for coupe springs for the back mostly for looks, but I love how this sits right now on the z suspension.
