i hate how the headlights don't flow with the body like the headlighs on the coup
the nissan lights stick out past the body so that i can flair the rear fenders

maxima lights fit perfect for what im doing and they look sick at night

as well for progress on the car i still haven't touched the defuser but i started adding foam to the right side of the car and dose anyone have an idea on how or what i can use to make both sides match? and if anyone has question fill free to ask.

Yup!..
The syrofoam is held with glue from a hot glue gun ( I'm sure there's a much better way to hold it up than with a glue gun) then I cover the foam with blue masking stape ( cuz its cheap homedepot foam not made for fiberglass reasin) then cover that with fiber glass and last I rip or burn the foam out

Pretty sweet build. Most people don't do their own aero so this is definitely neat. Keep up the progress! I'd be interested in how the end result looks.

Also I think the tails look pretty good actually with the 8th gen. Good choice.

I'm not gonna lie.. i like the way its looking so far. Only thing so far that I would change.. is the bottom middle of the front bumper. Looks wayy too narrow for such a wide car. I would maybe continue the bodyline from the grille, as far as the opening goes.

Other than that. Looks pretty neat!

thanks drowzee but when it rains my car gets wet lol
nah but the only problem with rain is the gaps between the car and foam stay wet and never dry so the faster i can cover it with fiberglass the faster i can remove the foam ( preventing mold from building up) it just rained yesterday haha

Yeah, personally I think parts of the kit are a bit busy for my tastes but it's really cool that you're doing all the work yourself.
