BTR Driver Profile: Andy Rushing and a Color Changing 2007 Infiniti G35X

For this driver profile we sit down with the president of MNNI, Minnesota Nissan Infiniti, and see how his BTR 2007 Infiniti G35X project is going.

In today's car enthusiast culture, people are always trying to do something different than what's been done - we see this right now with extreme camber, wild engine swaps (LS all the cars!) vinyl wrapping, velvet wrapping (yes, that's a thing ...) and Liquid Wrap: AKA Plasti-Dip.


Just like everything under the sun, there's a right way to do something and there's a wrong way... a very very very wrong way. Plasti Dip style "paint jobs" have gotten a bad wrap recently since it's become a popular trend because so many people don't prep correctly, don't use the correct equipment to apply it, and don't pay attention to the climate in which they cover their favorite ride! Let's be honest, what results can you REALLY expect by using Plasti-Dip spray cans in your driveway?

If you want to see what's really possible to do with Plasti-Dipping a car, check out Andy Rushing's 2007 Infiniti G35X! Not only has he perfected the art of liquid wrap to the point that most people think it's a traditional paint job, he is also incredibly creative with the design choices.

Andy is actually responsible for a lot of new life in the Minnesota car scene lately. Not only is president of the quickly growing car club MNNI Minnesota Nissan Infiniti , but he's also busy running his own company Lifestyle Minnesota , a and events business for the automotive scene. When asked why he built this G35X the way he did, the response is one that most can appreciate:

"I built it to look different and function for many uses, whether show, rally, autox, or any track event."
Are you done with it? If not, what's next?

"Definitely not! Next up is heavy duty skid plate to withstand winter abuse, air vents for the brakes, And studded tires for the ice track."
Andy's goal for this car build is one that many enthusiasts are also after and when you see the number of car shows, track events, and daily driving miles he puts on per year, you can tell that this car is doing exactly what it's supposed to do!

When asked what he would do differently to this build, to achieve the same goals Andy said "Absolutely nothing, I really like everything I've done with it, I think the build is progressing in the right direction."
