Default 2004 SL Progress

So got the car cheap and half put together (lazy mechanics tick me off)
Below is what i have fix/modded so far and what is coming:

- Drivers Front wheel bearing
- Had to re-bolt the "stopper insulator" (mechanic didn't want to put them back up when replacing the A arms....
- Came with a Pioneer flip up radio (not my choice but hey)


Coming in about a week or so;

- 2009 Maxima rims 18"x8"
- Have to replace my 4at valve body assembly
- Blacking out all wood/silver parts with black Plasti-dip for now till i decide carbon fiber (due to it has black leather and all black just looks nice)
- Getting a new rear passenger door (this one looks like its hit the garage a few times

Thats all for now, deciding on what way i want to lower it, and what exhaust and bolt on mods i want.

Will keep updated.

***UPDATE***

- Rims just came in, getting wheels on them and an alignment, (pictures to be posted later)

- Deciding on what exhaust set up to go before we order one (ours
has been patched at least 10 times)

- Ordering BC Coilovers next week ish (the replacement suspension the last owner put in sit extremely high in the front and the ass hops like a honda 0.o )

- Passenger rear door hopefully next week then it will be Plati-Dipped black and the tops will be a color shift paint between blues and burple.


I believe thats all for now, till i think up what next to do. Pictures will come soonish.

HUGE UPDATE


Got the BC Racing coilover in and installed along with sway bar end links (due to mine were stock and just beat up)


I just have to

They are amazing, the look is amazing, the ride is a dream (for a sport suspension of that price)

Next up is a few little mods for the center console/dash (i have a flip up radio and it is a pain to close every time you want to change the AC ect) so i plan on removing the factory radio controls and moving up the AC controls up to the radio spot.

**** UPDATES ****

Some long over due updates,

So after putting in the BC Racing Coilovers, the family and i have gone on a few road trips to check it all out and see if i need any adjustments

50min south of Boston, MA to Hampton Beach, NH

and

50min south of Boston, MA to Saco, ME

after the drive to Hampton, NH i raised the rear about a 1/2 in due to the car just wasn't level but i kept the factory dampening.

The drive to Saco, ME was awesome

Put the coilovers to work once i got there with some intense back roads 60-70mph area and some seriously fun turns, and damn does the car just sit and go.

Buuut after the return and 600miles in 2 days and adventurous driving, my valve body has really shit the bed, can only really use 1st and 2nd (i have a 4at) so im about to deal with the heat and go replace that junk with the new OEM VB i picked up new from Ebay for cheap. Will update if all goes well



PS. anyone who lives near Boston, MA and is leaving the city using 93 South WATCH OUT FOR THE MIDDLE LANES AND BRIDGES thats if you have coilovers or are lowered.

no warning signs what so ever for "bump" I slammed that thing so damn hard at 40mph in traffic the backs of the OEM HID's came off THAT LOW LIFE

BAD UPDATE TIME

due to the fact time is never on my side with work and my 2 kids and all, i never got to replace the VB, so the other day was driving it to get gas and the transmission just went, no gear works. so im now in the process of ripping out the old and replacing it with a used one.... big boy toys sure do cost a lot. but i cant complain with the used one (45,000 miles on it) aslong as this VB isnt shitty, then ill have to go 6spd swp
