The Transformation of and Road to My VIP G35 Sedan

I figured since a few others have shared their progress with their vehicles and having seen the transformation it would be pretty cool if I documented my road and vision for my VIP styled G.

I didn't always have this idea. In fact, some of what I have done to my car to this day I disliked in the past, but it grew on me and it inspired me to do more. I'll be posting quite a bit of pics, because eventually, almost every aspect of the vehicle will be changed. Let's start with the first chapter....OEM!

I was a lucky winner in a raffle and got some free Second Skin Damplifier Pro. 13 sq. ft. Enough for the entire trunk lid, include a little on the inside.

Tein Basics, Larger Tires, OEM Front Lip, Emblem Paint & Muffler Delete (Walmart Tip FTW)

Got the first suspension setup on and matched the new tires up with some 245/35's all around. Also added the OEM front lip and painted the G35 black since the paint had chipped when debading it.

3rd Suspension Setup: Impul Ohlins & Hotchkis Sway Bars

What a huge upgrade. I wish I could keep these to put on bags, but I don't think the bags would go over the streets. Performance was immaculate and noticeable during daily driving. Don't really have pics of sways, but you can see the front ones in these pics.

20" Work Varianza T1S (step lip), 5th Suspension Setup: Stance GR+ True Coilovers, Garson Valve Stem Caps, & Battle Version Camber Arms

Wheel specs: (F)9.5 +3 w/225/35 tires, (R)10.5 +0 w/225/35 tires. Fronts are HKS still since I have an issue with the damper clicker, should be fixed soon. This is when I started wanting to go with the VIP look.

Camber & Fender Work and Battle Version Toe Arms Installed

Tires rubbed on the fender so I added some negative camber. Currently at -7.5 degrees. Had some more fender work done, lots of pull and a little flare. This is the point where I was truly inspired to go with the VIP theme, basically go all out. Before I was just testing the waters.

Installed & Modified Cusco Front Upper A Arms, Cambered Front More
Got some work done last week, and again thanks to Alex from Battle Version for hookin it up

I got some Cusco Negative A Arms for the front, got -4.1 degrees of camber but it wasn't enough. The metal plate was flipped around and the inner part of the camber arm was dremeled out to get the plate to fit. Doing so got me an extra 0.6 degrees of negative camber.

I also put on some 15mm spacers up front, now having a -12 offset on a 9.5. Had some rubbing issues where the sidemarker bracket is so Alex trimmed some of it off and now I have virtually no rubbing (unless the car rebounds alot).

I also decided to fix my bumper. On the both the left and right side on the bottom it had split open from scraping so I fiberglassed a couple layers and made it good as new.

How pretty much everyone's upper A arms look

Looks like I got spotted by someone on the Zilvia (240 forums) on my way to get some fatter tires put on in the rear. I was careless and didn't check my air at all since they were mounted. Low pressure + stretched tire = tire comes off. Luckily my rims were ok and so are the tires, but to play it safe, I ordered new tires since I wasn't that I have an extra set, I can use the ones I had in the rear up front. Rears are now 235/35's.

On the way to City Tire in South Gate...Props to John and the tire guys for squeezing me in last minute. Also thanks to 4Dr.Madness. for letting me borrow the donut so I could use my spare (which I left at home) and silverg35sport for bringing a jack (which I also had at home).

Updated pics with wider tires in the rear to come soon.

Also, a couple days ago I removed the roof overlay. Thinking about keeping it clean, more luxury, and the black overlay made it look more sporty. For some reason, in person the car looks lower.

New muffler.

Been a while since I've done much with the car. Finally got a muffler on, Sebring, and it is sick. I'll get sound clips and better photos soon. I'm going to end up doing a full exhaust with the shop down the line.

Here's a clip, but quality is not that great audio wise...gonna redo it.

January 17, 2010:

Haven't done too much, but I've been getting some pretty neat ideas checking out some VIP mags. Anyhow, getting some JDM cigarette/ash tray holders...i don't smoke but they can be used as cupholders too. They'll match my table that I'm going to have made for me.

Also added some chrome trimmings to certain areas, I'll get pics of them if I can tomorrow. Also relocated the Garson hood badge to the trunk to cover up the holes . For the fenders, I messed up, but gonna redo, you can see one piece where I cut off the trimming and there was a gap so I put another piece there. Too lazy to take off and redo at the moment. The other side came out just fine though. Also some better pics of the cupholder.

Decided I'm gonna go through with meshing the two bumpers together..makes it easier, saves some money since buying two sets of projectors and HID kits for them will run some coin.

Gonna use the FX projectors, but any thoughts on whether I should do 8k or 10k? I have 8k HID's and I don't want yellow fogs...some pics of a "test fit". basically just let the bumper hang there for a visual.

I won't have that grill though, I'll have the OEM grill and I'm going to make a piece right above the grill just like the M45's have.

February 6, 2010:

Got my car back from JT Autobody in Rosemead...Mad props to Big Brotha Tony...he hooked it up! Currently needs paint and FX proejctors to be put in for fogs, should get done before the end of this month.

It's raining right now so had to take in garage pics, but nonetheless, here they are. Feel free to comment in any way

Quick vid I snapped today....

March 3, 2010:

Quick update. I'm starting to run the wires. I figured I have plenty of wire so might as well put it to use. Rather than do a single run of power cable from batt to trunk and ground somewhere in trunk....or even do a full run of each like the occasional people do...I figured to do two full runs of each. One for each amp.

I'll also be replacing the Odyssey PC 1200 with a redtop group 35 and throwing the Odyssey in the trunk with a Yellowtop group 35. I was gonna use a Batcap 3000 up front and 2000 in the rear but I don't have that much money for batteries, even with my sponsorship pricing, so unfortunately I had to go with Optima cos I got sponsored by them as well....probably order those batteries in a couple weeks.

Here's some progress pics...

Since I'm going to be swapping the battery I figured I'd leave some slack for the wires. All I could find was some latex gloves..then I found some electrical tape and wrapped it around (not pictured is the electrical tape).

April 11, 2010:

Installed deadener on roof.

Copy and pasting from my build log on an audio forum. Started on Thursday, continued and finished on Friday.

Started deadening the roof today. My gosh it was a pain in the rear. I got the headliner off without much trouble, but getting it out of the car was another story. Didn't get it out till I stopped doing some work and a friend came over and helped me out. Thanks Robby

Anyway, majority of the roof is done. Just need to finish up the driver side in the rear and do the front a little. Hopefully I'll have enough for my trunk, but I don't think I'll have anything left for my doors. Using a shop pack already. BTW, I'm using two layers and I'll be finishing this up tomorrow.

Here's some before and in progress videos of the difference.


In Progress:

I have plans for the headliner, might do them black, but then my pillars won't match. Not doing suede, I don't like it. But I do have some neat ideas. Some may say it's tacky but I think it'll fit the look of my car quite well. I'll be putting fiber optic lights like you would see on the roof a limousine.

Roof is completed with 2 layers. Here are some pics...

New setup in the works. Will take some time to complete, but since I had the time I decided to try part of it out.

Rears are yet to be determined. Looking to go anywhere between 15 and 35 mm more aggressive. I want to get between a 5.5 and 6" lip in the rear. Will be doing it without wide body or by cutting the fenders and adding sheet metal.

Don't mind the rattle, it's my OEM cats. Need new ones.

June 10, 2010:

I'm doing some interior work, bought a crap load of vinyl and fabric spray paint, although I should have bought some dye instead. Carpets were painted black (will get pictures later) and already started on the a pillars, headliner, b pillars and some other little pieces. Painting everything above the dash black to keep a nice two tone.

I'll probably wrap the pillars with some leather vinyl or maybe something that matches the headliner. As for the headliner, I'm not sure yet. Gonna put the fiber optic lighting project aside for the time being. Maybe some sort faux fur, but must be real short. Not gonna do suede or alcantra (or whatever it's called) because I don't like it. I wanna keep it luxury/exotic and suede is more sporty and I feel like everyone has it and I always go about doing things different from others. Or I might find something with a pattern or design that is still fully black, we'll see. I might add another coat to the headliner tomorrow. It's good enough, but maybe it can use another coat. Sucks that one spot in the middle behind where the sunroof is, is a different shade. It was dirty from before (another reason why I wanna wrap).

Anyway, here are some pics.

Had some time to change the oil. So pissed because when I went to get the oil filter, I usually get the Puralator PureOne for the Maxima. Well I picked up the regular kind, went back, didn't have it, went to 2 other places, didn't have it, and then come to find out I even got the wrong one. I got the G35 one...BAH!!!

Anyway, painted the washer fluid tube, coolant tank, and the dipstick handle black.

Gotta do the power steering still.

August 4, 2010:

You should see what other things I have comin up for it within the next two months

Here's a little taste....

I installed the Garson D.A.D. pedals. Seems like the accelerator pedal is off slightly. Kinda lazy to fix it, but maybe I will later. Gonna get some black touch up paint and paint the screws and the little brackets to hide it more.

Awesome work Levon, best sedan out there. How often do you clean that pole?

Is your roof painted or is it an overlay?

Roof is an overlay, debating on whether to paint it or not, depends on how my grill turns out, gonna redo it in chrome.

I clean the pole after each model (when possible) lol.
