Probably should have done this a while ago, but better late than never.

2008 SE

Already have a couple threads out there, so I won't repost pics, and the links to a pressure washing incident and Nismo exhaust are below-

Nismo Exhaust- Installed
Car Wash-1, Me-0

Mod List thus far-
Nismo exhaust (Part #20100-RSL20 )
R2C Intake
Racingline V2 Y-Pipe
Racingline FTSB
Rear Strut Bar
Progress Rear Sway Bar
Rear Moog end links

Plastidipped the grille this week, pretty happy with the turnout.

Picked this up from a GB at the other org, haven't had a chance to install it yet. Weather and time have not been cooperating very much in the past few days. (As I type this, it looks like some sort of cloud of death is actually headed this way right now. So if you don't hear from me again, it's been real y'all.)

Quality is outstanding. Can't wait to put it on.

Future Plans-
Nothing too crazy, working on getting a few suspension related things right now, hoping to hear back soon. This summer I plan on getting an R2C and doing something with the roof strips. They're holding up Ok, but the silver has got to go. After that, possibly some Nismo sways and some spacers, and throwing some paint action on the engine plastics. No real plans for a drop or wheels, budget just isn't there for that, especially when there's only a few wheels that really do it for me, and they are the opposite of cheap (A34 Nismos, G35 19'' Rays, Volk/Work/etc....)

Looking good so far. If you're looking for wheels and other parts, check craigslist. You can find a lot of good deals if you're patient.

Very nice. Always wondered how the car would handle stock height with suspension mods.

Thanks guys. Hopefully I'll hear something soon about the suspension news, and I can report back. I'm really interested to see how it works out too.

The rear strut bar is the original and one of the 1st ones made I believe. If it is... it's from NYC.

I have that same one.

Installed these a week ago, but didn't get a chance to get pics until today.

Don't have a lift to get a good pic of the undershield, but you get the idea. Ignore the slightly 'non-fitting' look to it. If you look closely at the top of the pic (bottom of lip), you can see where they, ahem, 'fixed, the accident from a previous owner. The fit of the bumper itself isn't 100% true. The shield is fine and was easy to install, even though I crawled my happy ass under there and did it myself.

RSTB has been great so far, can really feel the rear end a lot more planted around corners and even a slight reduction in total body roll.

Hoping to install the FTSB before too long, but these 15 hour days kinda put a hamper on car plans.

Coming along nicely!

I am trying to get spdracer to make a similar "splash shield" for the rear. He did such an awesome job on the front.

Keep up the good work

Can you give a little more 'specifics' on the rear brace? Kinda like how it looks.

Always wondered if the RSTB's made much of a difference, considering the oem panel across the rear back seat in itself ties the chassis of the car...please enlighten me...

You looking for install or overall review specs? This does a better job of tying the chassis together than the panel and increases rigidity closer to the suspension points. With just the stock panel, there's still some body flex in the middle. Putting the brace lower than the rear deck helps reduce that flex. Obviously it's not gonna turn this car into an SCCA car, but it really helps firm up the rear end. (Insert punchline)

I got them as a package, but only because they were being sold as such by a member here. You'll have to buy them separately.

FTSB installed and Trimbrite Blackout tape as well. F you chrome!

Strut bar didn't make a massive difference, but that was partly due to the RSB already having an effect. Initial turn in is much better and total feel in turns is much improved. Steering doesn't feel as 'loose' as before, which can be a good/bad thing depending on how you like it. (Possible that there is a correlation in how you also prefer your womans.)

Tape is super easy, just take your time. If you're uneasy about it, buy 3 rolls. Do a test run, figure out the tricks, and pull it off. Next two rolls will cover the strips just fine and they'll be perfect. Tomorrow I hope to get some pics of what I did with the A/C line to protect it.

Looks great man! I know when I stuck my FTSB on it really only helped on the hard turns like the round abouts getting on the free way and such. Still gotta pick up a rear myself and test that bad boy out. But your rides looking good!!!

There was a teeny bit of contact on the AC line after install, so I cut some high temp tubing I had laying around, wrapped the line and zip-tied em on. Perfect looking? Nope. But this ain't a show car and I don't care. Just don't want a hole in my damn line.

There's contact between the line and part of the bracket in the pic, but with that bar installed there's a slight bit of push away from the bar that gives it some wiggle room. Might mess with it as time goes on, but should be good to go for now.
