    Hey y'all! New guy here and I just picked up a 2018 SHO non PP in Magnetic Metallic. I traded in my 2007 Infiniti FX35 for this beauty. I'll post a couple of pics of my old and new ride. You'll notice I'm kinda into the sleeper thing, also I'm into the modding thing as well lol. The FX has the same engine as the g35 and 350z so aftermarket parts were somewhat plentiful. On my FX I had an intake, full exhaust from the headers back, I was sitting on coilovers dropped pretty much to have a finger tip gap between my fender and tires. I also was on Nissan GTR wheels 10.5" square set up at all 4 corners running 295's. 15% tint all the way around, I painted my tail lights, switched all the lights inside to LED and all the lights outside were switched HID's (even the reverse lights lol) I had 1 JL Audio 10" sub sitting in a custom box they made a limited run for the FX. Plenty of carbon fiber wrap inside and out. And many more stuff that I can't think of right. I don't plan on going too crazy with the SHO but we all say that at the beginning don't we? Lol[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    That was the second thing I did with mine after venting the BOV'S.

    Nice pick up!

    Yup! The first 2 things I did to my FX was debadge and tint and I did the exact same thing to the SHO. I did 20% in fronts and 5% on the rear all ceramic of course!

    Same here but I went 5% all the way away around including a windshield banner.

    Next up is paint matching all of the chrome.

    Nice! I thought about doing 5% on the fronts but didn't want to get too much attention from the cops.

    True true, Texas heat isn't no slouch either. I'm planning on doing 70% on the front windshield hopefully before summer hits.
    Thanks man!

    Got home early from work today and decided install my radar detector and some LEDs to the front and rear dome lights. Drilled a little hole to let the wire feed through the plastic cover.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I bought a screen protector for my SHO and in order to not get any bubbles in the installation I decided to take apart the dash. I have to say it was pretty simple to take apart and put back together. [​IMG]
