I think he is referring to the diecut on the rear bumper. It's my bosses "signature" so to say. It was his only request since he did the work on my car for free. Took this cool picture at work today.

Doh. It's what I get for following along on a teeny tiny telephone screen that doesn't reveal teeny tiny letters on a teeny tiny picture.

Free advertisement is some of the best kind. What's next?

I'm just going to drive it and enjoy it for a while. I'd love to get some bags and relip the front wheels to 12.5 and throw them in the back. Nothing major planned as of yet. I've been spending too much money lately and I need to save some more for tuition lol.

Haven't made an update in a while, so figured this would be a fitting post. My boss spun a rod bearing in his motor, so he got a low mileage one for a hell of a deal. He also bought some long tube headers to put on the new motor, and we figured that Friday at 5pm was the best time to start LOL. Process was: motor out, tranny off, tranny on new motor, swap all accessories and hoses over, put headers on, engine back in, change oil / coolant / power steering fluid, let boss drive home. We left the shop at 4am, so I think we made pretty good time. Enjoy the picture overload.

HaHah yessir. He drove it home and took a 30 minute nap, then took it for a 250 mile drive for Greenville Cars and Coffee. Runs great, and sounds even better.

At work today, Boss wanted to head to the next city over for some food, then decided that it was the perfect time to take some photos. So we went to an older industrial area, and took the following pictures. Hope y'all enjoy.

Nice shots. Do the same thing at dusk next time and I think the backgrounds would look much better (industrial and overcast are the perfect combo!).

I didn't realize you had quarterpanel rust. Good reason to run the flares.

Another little update. Went to ImportExpo on Sunday (Oct 22), and I didn't want to be in the show with my super chipped up front grille. Sanded her down smooth and threw on some gloss black. Grille came out awesome, but I'm still going to wrap it to keep it from chipping. The Friday before the show, boss and I threw on some fresh CeramicPro and boy did it brighten the car back up. Also polished up my lips a little bit because they were crustyyyy. Show went well but was kind of boring. They didn't have many vendors nor was the actual show area very big, but it was their first East Coast meet so hopefully next year will be better. Ended up taking home 2nd in the G35/G37 category. Not bad, so far I'm 2 for 2 in shows.

Also forgot to add that I got some smaller sidewall tires mounted on the rear. Switched from a 235/40 to a 265/30, pretty pleased.

Grille looks nice. Still can’t believe this car is driven.

Thank you sir. Above all else, this car is just my daily. Put roughly 30k miles on it since I've owned her.
