Surprising our SUBSCRIBER with his DREAM CAR BUILD! (Full Transformation): 2014 Subaru BRZ

  Alex was recently announced as the winner for throtl Dream Build #2! As the winner of #throtldreambuild2, Alex got his car shipped out to San Diego California to be fully modified by the throtl team. When Alex's car arrived, it was a mostly-stock 2014 Subaru BRZ. As soon as the car arrived at the throtl headquarters, the team immediately got to work on some modifications. Alex's car got the works with some new interior, exterior, and performance-based modifications. Interior Modifications For the interior of the BRZ, we installed a custom black suede headliner, throtl shift knob, and a new audio system from OEM Audio+. The OEM Audio+ system sounds significantly better than the factory audio system. This made it way more enjoyable to listen to music in the BRZ. The Opelite Optics headliner had a space theme with led shooting stars that lit up the roof of the BRZ, adding a nice bit of style to the interior.

We're back with some more Tesla Z content! In today's episode of throtl, Will does some custom modifications to the Tesla Z, getting it one step closer to completion. 

Will Starts off today's video by installing some new seat rails from Zakutech and some Sparco QRT-R bucket seats. The seat rails offer many adjustment options, allowing the driver to find the most desirable seating position. The new Sparco bucket seats will allow the driver and passenger to remain properly seated while driving the Tesla Z aggressively.

After getting the new seats and seat rails installed, Will begins creating custom gauge mounts utilizing the original 350z gauge pod locations. We ended up getting some custom throtl faces for our motor temp, battery temp, and 0-5 volt signal gauges from SpeedHut. Not only will the gauges look cool in the car, but they will provide us with a warning light if any of the temperatures get too high. 

Will found some 3-D printed mounts that fit in the factory Z gauge holes. This allowed us to install our after-market gauges. Will finishes off the gauges by making a custom hood to cover the top and fill in the gaps. The final product turned out beautiful! Up next is to get everything wired up.

The next day, Rickie, Mickey, and Quinn work on getting the rear subframe removed so they could finish some welds and get the new Tesla motor installed.

Check it out for yourself in the video below! Stay tuned for the next Tesla Z video on Sunday.
