I've bought my car in march 2015. When I saw her I felt in love! I had a small Toyota that time too, I used that for going to work.
The first things in customization for me were the new wheels and lowering. I think these are the most attractive mods, so I ordered a set of Japan racing JR11 wheels with Toyo tires and a set of lowering Springs. Unfortunately it took one and a half month to get them....
Wheels done, let's get lowered!
After these, I didn't do any intresting for a while. Now I caught moditis infection, so started to build my car as fast as I can!
I've changed the "H" emblems to red ones, painted the calpiers red too.
I've installed remus center exit exhaust with a new diffuser
now it's time for customizing the interior! I wraped the center chrome piece last day.

Nice start. Really like the wheels.

Details on the custom interior? What are your plans?

I'll use the red leather on the center surface of the seats and the black on the sides.
The door panel cloth will be replaced too, on the armrest area I'll use the black, on the vertical area the red.
I'll also intall aftermarket seat heating both seats and there will be a CR-Z logo on the seats on the upper surface (under the headrest) with black stiching.
This will be the first round, then I'll see what else to do.
Thought of wrapping the grey parts with the black leather too, but that case the whole interior will be too dark.

Small update:
Two weeks ago, my OEM style splitter has arrived, I installed that and an additional footwell led strip too which I can turn on by the sport mode switch. Pics and video below (sorry about bad quality, I took them by cellphone)

Last week I bought a Sprintex SC from Nightwish, now it's intalled. Fortunately, we had no issues by the installing, it took just about 3,5-4 hours.
I feel it's great to drive my Z now!! I feel it much more powerful and much more hungry

litz and jesses crew like this.

Don't leave the piggyback just there.
Cover those wires to future proof it a bit more. It's an advice.

4 hours was a nice clean install. Well done, now it's all about enjoying it and taking good care of it.

Thanks for the advice, I'm thinking about a solution to protect the piggyback from everything.
I already adhered rubber sealing on the side of the hood and the engine bay to definitely avoid getting water in from outside by a carwash or something else.
Maybe a fool idea, but it won't hurt.




I'm thinking about something to cool down the engine bay a bit, it's tropical weather inside now

I really enjoy the Sprintex and wondering why the Stock "Z" don't have a supercharger... now it is a real "sport hybrid" in the words of Honda

I'm wondering why your battery has stuff writen in Portuguese....weird...

Regarding the engine cooling, the best solution is a vented hood, or Venting the hood by cutting the OEM.
Something to study if you have the tools to do it.

Regarding the water from car wash, don't really think it would be an issue.
It would be more probable that the heat/steam from the extra supercharger heat, to condensate and create humidty inside the hood. That's why i advise to insulate the piggyback

also think about water from underneath. there are many here who have done many things to keep water out of the piggyback. Look into contact enhancer and sealing the connectors. One member ( litz?) made a gorgeous cover for each side under the hood.
