Deer catcher connected to frame by custom Leaf Spring sections. (Brush guard) able to be unbolted.

2 Orange guide poles to see where the exact corners in the front are.

Aftermarket spoiler

Racing pedals

2 seat covers

shift knob and shifter extension.

Came gold. Painted it orange, then black gloss, now flat black.

Alloy Rims painted black.

2×6 boards in rear of trunk, bolted thru, as reinforcement in case car is rear-ended.

NISSAN Decal on front and back glass.

3″ straight pipe exhaust that goes to like a 27″ cherry bomb, then Y pipe for dual pipes.

Cold Air intake.

All new EVAP.

Custom Rear Brake light assembly (Trailer lights held by wood/metal assembly, for rear window brake lights. I used the wire from the stock spoilers brake light.

Ripped out the rugs and insulation.. The floors are straight down to floor pan, and painted black. I got the three mats pictured for some sound and heat protection.. Also so you dont feel all the rocks with your feet on the floor.
