Recently purchased replacement 6x9's for the rear. Infiniti Reference 3-ways. Man, what a significant difference over the factory speakers. I also discovered that the rear speakers were basically in an open space. Terrible, for overall speaker sound. As a result, I also purchased a baffle that incapsulates the speaker, and provides a much better sound. The speaker is sitting in the baffle, in this photo.




I've also begun installing the air suspension. Here's a photo of the Viair 444 dual compressors, 5 gallon tank, Air Lift V2 Controller and manifold.

I'd like to see a video of it working, going up & down.

I can probably put something together, once it's complete. I'm still in the process of installing the air lines, front and rear bags. The rear will require cutting the factory perch, top and bottom, and installing the custom built perches made by Universal Air. The front will be the absolute lowest possible, without cutting and raising the top mounts. I will definitely take additional photos once the front is installed. Which I plan to install this weekend. =)

Here's the bags installed on the front (rear still to be completed). The wheels are 20x8". Had they been 7.5", it would allow another 1-1.5" drop as seen in the photo. Regardless, it's still a pretty good stance with plenty more drop left on the struts.







Still a little room here, for a lower drop.



Filled front bags.

Update of the rear bags welded & completed. The current stopped position in the rear, is sitting on the bump stop. There might be more room to lower, if I cut down or even slightly modify the bump stop. It's near level with the metal surrounded housing. I'm considering first removing them, to see if the rear lowers further. These sleeve Universal Air bags, will totally deflate to 2 inches. Lowest bag that I'm aware of.

Before weld. I've cut the factory perch and fitting the bag.


Top welded.














New license plate.

Fitted the roll pan rear bumper. Contemplating whether or not to stick with the billet grille, or pick up the Pteazer smoothie bumper & grille. Also, considering the hood, however, the hood isn't really considered a "retro" feature.

Decided to go ahead and pick up the Pteazer Smoothie front bumper and grille. He had 3 in stock and only 1 was available. Will ship out next week.

A few examples.
