Last weekend we met up with Ming from Fizz Autosports to shoot his Infiniti M35x. If you guys remember, Ming’s Nissan S15 was one of our first shoots back in 2009 when we first started this site/blog. It’s only fitting that one of our last shoots of 2011 is this spectacular Fuga conversion. Ming has had this car for several years now and it’s probably one of the nicest VIP builds in Chicago. Stripped of its original Infiniti tags, this Y50 Fuga turned dozens of heads as we drove around the city for this shoot.
This rear shot by Nick shows off some recent pin striping work, a nice VIP detail. You’ll also notice some 5-Zigen cans which give the subtle Junction Produce kit an aggressive finish. Fuga and Junction Produce badges add a touch of personalization.
Can Ming really drive this low? Yep! We drove around the city at this ride height, only needing to raise the car when confronted by pot holes, speed bumps, and other obstructions. This adjustability is possible compliments of Air Runner, arguably the finest plug and play air ride systems on the market. Weds Vishunu 20×10 +12 all around are tucked under perfectly pulled front/rear fenders.
I really like the shot above because you can really see the aggressiveness of the front camber. The Nissan front grill is a necessary add-on to complete the Fuga conversion. The front fog lamps are supplied by Junction Produce.
The finish on the wheels flow nicely with the Junction Produce stainless pillars. If you’re noticing a theme here, you’re right! I think every possible product from Junction Produce was purchased for this car. See below for the mod list if you don’t believe me.
One item neglected by many of the VIP builds are the brakes. Ming did some fancy work by exchanging the factory brakes with the Brembo kit from an Evo X. Overall, this build is simple and clean. Nothing really over the top, but planned carefully from the get-go. Ming doesn’t have too many future plans but you may see some new wheels as well as custom interior and audio work for 2012.
