    Default Nissan Cima F50 VIP Platform

    Sup fellas, been working on building a VIP platform Infiniti Q45 for about couple of years now. I got my 02 model pretty much close how I wanted it but came to a final decision to sell it and get a 05 model. The difference between the two is the bigger grille and taillights plus the upgraded interior features as well. I have been lurking the net for 05 model for about a year and finally came across one recently in Marietta, GA. So I took a quick flight to pick it up and drive it back home. I also ended up rebuilding my Veilside Andrews from 5" fronts and 5.5" rears to 7" front and 9" rears. Plans are to do some radius fender work and have some fab work to have these massive wheels sitting right. Still debating if I want to do a GT style look or do the Luxury look. Still got a long way to go. Here are some pics of what my 02 Q looked like over the past two years.

















    So when I got the 05 model I immediately swapped the JDM headlights and interior/exterior LEDs. Big difference and upgrade. Next will be to get it on air setup and have this land yacht on it's belly. Also here are some pics of the Veilside Andrews rebuilt.











    Updated Headlights










    More to come. Still tuned..........

    Made up my mind on the tire sizes for this build. Going with 285/30 and 325/30 to fit my set of 19x12 and 19x14.5 Drews. Should get a mild stretch. Will see how much poke I will have...lol

    So I did some test fitting on my old Q since I have it dropped on coilovers to get idea on how much destruction I need to do to make these fit and look right. Obviously I will be doing a radius/fender work but my poke game is strong as hell tho..lol









    Also debating whether to go GT Style on this build or Luxury Style:

    GT Style:






    Luxury Style:





    decisions...decisions....

    GT style get my vote as well.

    I think the Luxury style, with that grille and all, automatically pushes you towards the "Chrome all the things!" lifestyle
    Oh and it makes it look a little bit like a Hyundai Grandeur XG

    Finally getting around to getting some tires for these wide set of Veilside Andrews. Went with 285/30/19 and gna do 325/30/19 for the 14.5 inch rears. Also detailed the Q. FYI, my 2002 Q45 is for sale.

    So I sold my 2002 Q45 at the end of May of this year and not even a month homie sends me this. That's all it needed...just a nice set of wheels.

    So I finally ordered my air setup and went with Airrex. Ready to get this yacht on it's belly. Also been following this build out in the motherland Japan and man does this Mercedes headlight conversion look good on this Cima F50.

    I **** to say it, but I like the earlier style grill and the hood ornament.

    Curious to see how you get those massive wheels to fit.

    So a little update on this crazy setup. Finally got my air management setup and air struts. Went with Airlift 3P. Took advantage of the 20% deals over the holidays thanks to BagRiders. Also, got my airrex struts as well. Just waiting on my buddy to have opening so I can drop my car and get my air setup installed. In the meantime imma either roll with either the 20" Carlsson 2/6s or 19" Work Rezax II. Here's some side shots with the wheels and the poke that I will address. More leaning to the Carlsson so will see.

    The wheels I will ultimately have on the Q once I have the funds for the fender/radius work.

    Had similar test fits, you can make it work. Those benz lights look like they are at home on the Cima I can't believe it. I love GT style but imo this chassis is pretty damn gangster and chrome would do it well.

    The benz lights is something I wouldn't mind doing. GT style is my fav too. Just gotta figure how to fit the Veilside. Gna take some mad fender work but if done right it can look good.

    Small update: So my orginal guy that was gna install my air setup took forever so my patience ran out. So looked around the DFW area for air install and chose SCW Performance to install my setup. Guys there are very knowledgeable and detail. Glad to have them take care of the air setup. Should be ready by next week. In the meantime I picked up a G37 IPL front bumper because I had a crazy idea of meshing it with the Q45 for awhile now. I think this is gna look super dope. Didnt want to reveal this but fu*k it I'm stoke about this plan. Here's a sneak preview.

    So the air setup is coming out nicely. Guys at SCW Performance are doing a great job so far. Decided to drop the air setup in the spare tire compartment.
