Z32 JSPEC J-SPEC DIY PAINT RATTLE CAN TWIN TURBO AH6 CRP CHERRY RED PEARL

Finished up my DIY J-Spec bumper paint job this weekend! When I twin turbo swapped the car last year, I needed a bumper with openings for the added intercoolers. Luckily, I scored a used J-Spec bumper for a great deal a while back, but it was baby blue.

I drove around like that for 6 months or so, until couldn’t stand it anymore. I got estimates around $300 to $400 from body shops (outrageous), and up to $600 if I wanted it “blended” into the fenders & hood. The rest of the car is original paint, and I wanted to keep it that way. So I decided to just tackle the job myself.

Follow along and see just how I did it!

300ZX Z32 SSR TYPE C WINTER WONDERLAND

It’s been a cold snowy winter here in the Northeast, and the Z’s spent much of it under a blanket of snow. I’ve been working behind the scenes (and computer screens) parting out what’s left of the white Z, editing footage, and scouring the interwebs for every last part I’ll need for the twin turbo / 5 speed swap come spring.

But with clear skies and temps reaching the mid 50’s last weekend, I couldn’t resist the chance to get out the cleaning supplies and give the Z a good detail. Here was my chance to give the original 20-year-old paint a much-needed layer of protection from the harsh winter elements. So follow along as I take you through the steps of a good quality detail!
