What do you all think should be first? Last? If you could give me an order that'd be splendid. I know some suspension stuff is more important than other and I also have non suspension based stuff on the list as well.And if you guys have any parts in mind don't be afraid to suggest :)
Thanks in advance!! :D

-DC Cat-back
-Lowering springs (1.5" to 2" drop)
-front strut bar
-rear shock tower brace
-rear sway bar
-front sway bar
-stronger coilovers
-better shocks (maybe?)
-New tires with 17/18s wheels

I think that covers it all..

I don't think there is a front sway bar out for the versa yet the rest of the list sounds good

Ooops, didnt read your signature. As for removing the emblems...most people use hair dryers and fishing line. There's a DIY somewhere around. I removed my emblems and love how it looks(pics in my album).

My list of mods done, first the Takeda Short intake, second the Tanabe Axle back exhaust, third I want is the headers, then I will get the rims and tires, finally the lowering springs. All cosmetics will be the last thing I will do, I want to make sure it rides perfect, as much as I want it to anyway, before it looks perfect!

nice list neohauoli

Thanks a lot hr16de! I don't have adhesive remover so can I just do hair dryer and pick at it until the adhesive is gone?

We used to have that but all we have is Turtle wax rubbing compound.. I don't think that'll help much.

it took a good long 20 ish minutes removing the letters plus burger and all the extra adhesive. I realized that using the fishing line agains the paint made thin scratches :bash: could have been avoided but oh well. I hope the rubbing compound and a good waxing can undo this... wish me luck!

No problem. And I've never used that compound so I'd get Goo Gone, I used it when I removed my emblems, dealership sticker, and pinstripe...works wonders. :thumbsup:

yeah it doesn't work. And since it didn't, me being the cheap guy that I am, turned to the household sponge. Realizing it didn't scrub off I used the green side, it looks like I sanded the part where the badges went now. :cryin: :badidea: So I don't know what to do now.. I'm about to go get some 3m remover and then cry at my partly sanded down trunk lid. :sad: any suggestions how to get the reflective shine of the paint back? I tried washing and waxing the area and no luck..

depending on how bad the scratches are you could try to get it buffed out

I tried. It didn't do anything. *sigh* I washed it and waxed it and removed all the adhesive and nothing. The scratches are too deep.

I talked to advance auto parts after buying goo gone and he said I could try some product that wasn't likely to work orrr I should just get some touchup paint.. And I told him I'll likely get the paint, since that's not guaranteed to work. :/

To the left of the reflection of the light you can faintly see a spot where the burger used to be that looks rough and "sanded-down" :/
