UPCOMING EVENTS

Flawless Victory!

Flawless, immaculate, and perfection. These are the many words that describe Marcus’ G35.  Before we started shooting, he told me that he had to detail his car real quick. I had no clue what he had to clean because his car looked like it just got a car wash from God. Even when he popped his hood, there was not a spec of dust to be found. Let me give you a little walk through of this flawless G35…

We would have had cooler scenery in the pictures, if it wasn’t for Marcus’ car being too low to get over the speed bumps without trashing his car. It’s all good though, because we still got some pretty cool shots.Custom everything, from the grill to the license plate. Attention to detail like having an emblem-less grill  is what molded this car to perfection.POLISHED EVERYTHING! Perfect amount of drop all around.Wheel fitment is on point.SSR SP1′s backed by some Wilwood Factory 6p BBK. Great combination.This car looks amazing when it’s rolling and the exhaust sounds beastly! 

Marcus’s Modification list…very long…

Marcus would like to give a little shout out, “Thank you to Minh for shooting my ride for Hellaflush and taking the time to do the feature.  Shout out to Josh (aka grippymonkey or jhooks) who did my first Hellaflush feature in 2010. Thanks to my sponsors (in alphabetical order): BAUSauto, ledmod.com, Rare JDM, SmartWax, and Tanabe/SSR. I owe a huge thank you to a several individuals who have put a ton of work on my car in their garages and provided inspiration and guidance during my build: Randy Riggs, Dave Rikimaru, Zack Tscharanyan, Darren Aki, Chris Berry, Sean Chase, Marty Huynh, Viet Nguyen, Chris Leiva, Tim Trank, Shane Rosas, and Grant Plummer. I’d also like to thank the shops/businesses that have supported my build: AutoExplosion Auto Body & Paint, Décor Plating, Kaledescope Polishing, Earl’s Store1, ENV Auto Detailing and OC Infiniti. Also shout out to all of my friends at Team RareJDM, Team R-Rydes, the entire Canibeat family and Royal Origin. Thank you to all of the homies on g35driver.com and the Wrong Fitment Crew, you all know who you are; way too many to list here.”

Shavi also did a little video during our shoot; can’t wait to see it some time this week!

  3. I’ve seen this car in person a few times. It really doesn’t get any better for a G35.

    Good Job Marcus. You’re car is a true inspiration.

  6. Always a treat to see Marcus’ car.

  7. @ Joe – Thanks man. Lots of changes since this time last year that you would notice and a whole bunch that you probably wouldn’t notice right away (wheels, exhaust, and new headlights are the obvious changes)

    @ Josh – Thanks man appreciate that compliment!
