I like how that looks!!! Sadly I will be keeping my Cube stock height as the road around here would destroy that in no time.

Pt. II "NOW LOWERED!"



The folks at TEIN Suspension equipped the Mobile U SEMA Cube with some coilovers, making it sit very low and nice! Tein equipped our Cube with height-adjustable “BASIC” coilovers with custom settings dialed in for these one-off coilovers. It already looks killer with just the hub-caps on… It is amazing what a difference lowering it does. Stay tuned for the next installation with goods from DC-SPORTS and a proto-type grille.

PT. III-
As posted above, the new grille by ATI is applied. I like the mesh look, a great alternative to the OEM Nissan grilles for sure!

Although the Cube will rarely, if at all, see a track day, it never hurts to have great performance features for the same price as other performance parts our on the market. With that in mind, DC Sport had a lot to offer...

- Exhaust system Measurements: Measurements were taken to insure perfect fitment and exhaust sound quality.

- Muffler Style selection: Exhaust/ Muffler upgrade to create a sport-style appeal, by adding a stylish, stainless steel muffler and moderate horse power gains.

- Light weight muffler, never hurts to lose weight.


The SEMA Cube will also have the DC Sports strut bar, pictured below.


Welded mounts provide less flex when compared to other Strut Bars that are bolted to the mount.

Hood stand mount relocation: Allows for continued use of the OEM hood stand.

NEW!! ATI Cube Grille- Black
Auto-tech Interiors’ very own front grille.
- Made of high impact ABS plastic- Simple and easy installation, no modifications required.
- UV additives: Protection against UV color fade and warping.
- Precision injected molded: Ensures perfect and consistent fit.


Textured ensuring a clean styling and personalization.

Hey Spencer, looking great!

Two questions:

1) How difficult would it be to sand that grille for paint application? (As it stands, my plans call to get rid of all the flat black on my black Cube.)

2) Will you be posting a video clip when the exhaust is installed so that we can hear the sound quality?

Thanks again Spencer, and keep it up! You're gonna have one helluva impressive SEMA car!

Hey!

1) This is still a prototype, so nothing is final yet, but it is designed to be very customizable. I don't think it would be hard to paint.

2) We will have a video clip of the installed exhaust. We have to share the love! :)

Thank you for the support, I hope that this project speeds up the aftermarket availability for the Cube!

Part IV:

Wet Okole seat covers, exceeding expectation by providing an awesome product for the active or everyday lifestyle!!

Before we get started, I am sure many are wondering what in the world is okole ? Well, it’s a Hawaiian term for Buttocks, rear end, Butt; however you wanna put it, and protecting your Cube’s Seats from any un-natural elements is exactly what Wet Okole Seat Covers are designed to do.

What we loved:
- Waterproof and great for after the beach, snowboard/ ski session or spilling Hawaiian fruit punch L.
- Custom colors: to match our steel grey Cube, we selected black with grey tubing.
- Custom Graphics: Just one more step towards personalizing your Cube
- Engineered to fit: Not just a universal Seat cover, but one designed specifically for the Cube
- Easy DIY installation: Did not have to remove any seats. The most difficult part was running the straps under the rear seats. Aside from that, no problem.
