where did you get the bumpers bed lined at
Took them out ( except the metal part in the back because that bent two breaker bars so I gave up and left it on) and I did it in my backyard with some kind of stand to put the bumper pieces on.

That was over a year ago and everything is still holding good except some chips in the front that are only visible after a wash

The key is prep work, other than that it is not too hard as long as you have space to do it

Got my cai in the mail, over the weekend I clearcoated my headlights to protect them from uvs but some of the clear coat ran down under the masking tape and so I will re-bedline my front bumper this weekend if the weather permits it

I had the afternoon off, so i decided to install my CAI.

Stock airbox out


During install


Done :rockin:


Sounds awesome, will replace the kool vue filter with a K&N one soon and hopefully it will sound even better

I will also probably cut the stock tube from the nissan cover so i can put it back

Yesterday i removed the plasti dip on my grille and bed-lined it. I also re-bed-lined my front bumper. Everything came out good.
plastidip was a pain to remove although i used 2 cans on the grille

grille finished

first coat on bumper

Texture on bumper

End result

Just got my K&N Prefilter, will change the actual filter to a K&N soon,

Changed the halos in my headlights with Morimoto XB LEDs, can post pics of the install if needed. One of my CCFL didn't work anymore and LEDs are more reliable and a lot brighter during the day, (and i got a super deal at TRS, got each set for 15$ instead of 50)

Also about to get a Koyorad A2807 in the mail tomorrow, so i don't have to worry about SMOD.
Don't know if i will do the install myself or ask a mechanic yet
