Owner: Kyle Hitchcock
Make/Model: Nissan Maxima (7GM)
Color: Silver (K23)
After seeing many cars in the Facebook Maxima group, and some in person at shows, influenced me to doing many things I did to my Maxima. I did a little different styling to the things I did whenever I could to make the mods I did a little different than others, like the molding of body parts, and custom paint theme.
The reason I got the car was because I really liked the lines of the car, and the rear with the spoiler when I saw it at the dealer. The OEM wheels style also made me like it. I am even in more love with it now after the things I have changed and added to it. It has a nice sporty/mean clean look to it.
The first things that I did to my maxima is what got me started on it, and just went from there to make it the way I wanted it to look. I had the Stillen Front lip for the Maxima molded to my OEM bumper, to make it seamless, and a clean look as one piece. While that was being done I also had my headlights modified for the first time to add a high beam retrofit, change OEM HID lenses, demon eyes, halos, and paint the inner shrouds silver.
I did the molding of the lip to the bumper because I saw other Maxima’s with the lip screwed into the bumper edge and being held on with 3M tape. You could see gaps, and the screws. It wasn’t as seamless and smooth as I would like, so I decided to look into getting it molded. I found a awesome body shop that could do what I wanted. Precision Collision Center in Rockville, MD. They did it, and made it even better than I expected it to turn out. It turned out so smooth, very clean, and looks sporty, but also like it was made that way from factory. After they did the front lip, I had them mold the rear diffuser into the rear bumper a Month after they did the front lip.
I did my headlights because I liked the halos I saw on others, and I wanted a sporty look to them. I wanted to improve the OEM HID Low beam light output and have a brighter high beam output, so I had the high beam retrofitted to be a HID. I wanted to get rid of the chrome look in them, so I had the inner shroud painted silver.
It went from there with the things I have done. I have done all this in 3 years of ownership. I have changed and added many things since the first mods 3 years ago. I have some things I’d like to still do to it. I really enjoy driving the car and enjoying the things I have added and upgraded to the car.
