Here is where i will share the build up of our cube! from stock to present.
we have alot planned for this cube................Enjoy ;)


This is the cube at the stock stage after we brought it home!




We contacted our buddies at NRG to see what will fit on the cube. we ended up with carbon fiber hood dampers,pedals,e brake,radiator cap and some other goodies for future plans.




Next was lowering with Megan Racing Springs.


Nice big broadway mirror.



colored ripple hooks.




Kenwood double Din with Blue toth and Nav.




Then it was time for the Japanese Maple leaf graphice done in flat black and gloss pink.






Then it was time to drop our oem hood so a carbon fiber proto type could be made
that took about 3 weeks.







Then it was time for rims and tires so we chose xxr wheels for now.




Today we picked up some new shoes for the cube! 18" Volk Racing Wheels in gold with carbon fiber center caps.
those will go on shortley.



Next was the big brake kit thanks to Rotoras help!!






Then Came a Stillen Muffler and soon to come the Stillen Intake!





We just got in the mail our Non stop tuning pulley we will soon install



The rest is just random pics. later i will post other mods as they come!!

CONGRATS ON OCT COTM!

Your ride showcases a lot of mods that are waaaay ahead of everyone else's. ppl can agree to disagree on the maples, but you certainly executed quite a few "firsts" for Cubes here (and most other places)! it's easy for ppl to say, "you should do this or that". you went out and just got it done. and made it yours. keep pushing and inspiring, bro! ya gotta keep us up on your SEMA showing!

well-deserved honors for COTM!
:yes:

I agree completely, very nice and well done, a lot of work here. You are on your second set of wheels and I am still on Alumastocks. Even the touches people don't see like the gas struts on the hood. You S out paces the Ginormous SL's :yes:

Nice!

The leaves look illegal..lol!
i think the leafs are a hot topic at sema :D :D :D
so many people talking about it everytime we land back to cube is actually funny..and old man said I LOVE IT....anything that sells :D :D :D

you know on the other hand im very dissapointed with the kind of staff they hire to supervise
this ladies acting like receptionist at the front doors of each part of all sema....so there are a couple of old ladies pretty close to the cube and every morning they will put their crap next to it :mad: :mad:
yesterday wasnt so bad because it was just like a luggage small bag with wheels but today was just stupid :mad:
same freaking bad along with another black one same kind PLUS two cups of coffe on top and a empty sandwich bag with a half eaten cup cake....of course dont need to ask i grab all their sh!t and put it on the trash.....sorry but people need to have an apropiate matters on this level of a show/expo
no wonder other guys brought pillars to put around their cars if i knew it i would bring down mine :( :( :(

nice volk wheels. what offset are they?
as far i know they are 38offset, here,s the thing im runing 25mm spacers because im working along with the micro images crew to develop a set of flares for the cube the problem is that dont stick out that much for a flare excuse so either i need bigger spacers or wider wheels :-[

but as of now i left them like that and i actually like it a lot

thanks! for the good comment ;)

yeah i really like how the rear is pretty flush. the front for me is nice too but i just hate it when the front comes out more then the rear. thats just one of the things i hate most. im trying to find the best offset before i get my wheels. can you tell me how wide they are?

sorry for tons of questions but this is my first car since im only 19. im pretty much clueless about lots of stuff. i notice your one of the first to get the NST pulley. would you say your car is a lot louder? like you can tell you have something thats not so stock under the hood? and can you tell a power difference?

bogart the joint! :D :D ur funny man

i apreciatte the kind words, from day one we got this cube is been an amazing experience from mod to mod, but yeah we had the volk wheels before sema but we wanted to let the xxr wheels do their job for a bit longer, i still have to get a set of lugs since im runing some cheaty ones rite now

for meisrandy:

both sets that i had on my cube had been 7.5 wide in 38offset, i know a few cubes are runing the jdm style wheel 16"x8" zero offset but it does stick our prob much more than my volk wheels, just holler if you have any questions man is good you are local ;)
