David's 2007 G35 Coupe Build Thread

Hello Everyone,
I've been off and on the G35Driver forum but havent been posting or sharing so I decided to change that.
I bought a 2007 Infiniti G35 Coupe in October 2013, modded it and took it to local shows in WA throughout 2014.
2015 has been more mellow and I've brought it back to a more daily-driven look.
I've found some time and decided to post up my G35 and where I've gone with it over my time of owning it.
I will be continually updating pictures as I find free time to do so.

Here is one of my favorite pics when my G35 was in its prime in summer 2014:

Now.... without further a-due, here is what I started off with back in Ocotober 2013:
Big 'ol "baller" EXE Konvex on stock suspension, peeling carbon fiber roof wrap, broken CD player, badly chipped and painted Nismo bumper, screwed up side skirt due to a jack slipping, bad brakes, random stickers and an exterior that needed to be clay bared badly since it sat under a tree for a few months.
Luckily, the interior was swapped from tan to black and had navigation!

The first thing I did was get to work with the exterior. I removed the stickers, Carbon Fiber roof wrap clay bared, buffed out scratches and waxed the car.
I used Meguiar's Clay Bar Kit , 3m Rubbing Compound, Meguiar's polish, then finished with Meguiar's Gold Wax.

Soon after I found a good deal on Tein S-tech springs, plasti-dipped the front grill and had myself a mini-photo shoot.

At this point I got tired of seeing the wheels so sunken in, so I purchased wheel spacers! The front I put 15mm spacers and the rear I put 25mm spacers.
I also added a carbon fiber rear diffuser.

Since my brakes were obnoxious and squeeking constantly, I decided to get PowerStop Drilled/Slotted Rotors with Posi-Quiet Brake Pads. At the same time I painted the brakes red with Dupli-Color paint and got Red Muteki Lug Nuts with Locks.
I also purchased a Carbon Fiber Rear Window Visor as well.
Here are some pictures from a local Nissan/Infiniti car event:

Then I found a great deal to re-paint my front bumper and side skirts.
I got the bumper inlets and grill painted a gloss black instead of a plasti-dip black.
At the same time, I had a friend help me plasti-dip my wheels white. We used 4 cans of white plasti-dip and 3 cans of Pearlizer to match the Pearl of the G35 paint.
As well, I purchased a V-Lip from a Subaru WRX and drilled it into the bumper for a custom styled splitter.
I also went from 15mm front spacers, 25mm rear spacers, and added 32mm spacers all the way around. I bought a fender roller kit to pull and roll all the way around.
My wheel offset after was 20x9-2 Front, 20x10.5+3 Rear.

Then I decided to start adding interior pieces
Junction Produce Replica Neck Pillows, VIP white Fusa and Silver Tsuna knot, Custom Polka Dot Shift Boot, Door Inserts, Arm Rest and a VIP Bubble Shift ****. At the same time I went into the Trunk and added more Polka Dot material!

My wheels started bugging me at this point. The rim lip was half black, so I decided to sand them dude using 400, 800, 1000 sandpaper and polishing them with Mothers Mag/Aluminum Polish.

Right after the show I got tired of my wheels being plasti-dipped white, so I peeled it off. I also decided to paint my brakes calipers blue, get blue Godspeed Lugnuts and paint various engine bay pieces either black or blue

I sold my BC BR Coilovers and went back on my Tein S-Tech Springs so I can drive my car more comfortably, since kissing the pavement wasn't always fun..

But then I changed my mind yet again and bought Megan Coilovers and got Varrstoen ES 19x9.5 + 12 19x10.5 +12 wheels with Achilles ATR Sport 2 245/35R19, 275/35R19 Achilles ATR Sport 2 tires

I decided to once again put the car on Tein Stech Springs so I wouldnt have to deal with speedbumps and driveways and now I'm on G37 rims with 225/40R19 Delinte Thunder D7 Tires Front, 245/40R19 Delinte Thunder D7 Tires rear. I also put on 15mm spacers up front and 25mm spacers in the rear

Now, after 6+ months driving like that, I decided to put another set of STR 601 wheels with the same specs, but with wider tires, eg. 245/35R20 Delinte Thunder D7 Front, 285/30R20 Delinte Thunder D7 Rear and keep my ride height.. but of course that can change.
I will keep you guys updated on that when the wheels are mounted!
