Talking R33 GTST Spec 2 Black - My first Skyline!

Hello, my name is Mat.

I bought my Skyline (Black R33 GTST Spec 2) off Pete Bailey (Skyline Boy) a few months ago and have been spending time getting it how I like it before putting it on the road in the coming few months, so I thought I would set up a thread of my progress.

Pete has done an amazing job over the years of transforming the car from standard into a drag car as the following spec shows (see my signature for Petes build thread).

I will be using the car as my daily drive though and as more of a car than a drag machine so currently doing things like re-installing a rear wiper, 6 point apex cage coming out, interior back in, radio back in, aswell as other little bits. Car will also be having a paint job this year as Im really into keeping my cars looking nice.

Im looking forward to a trip to the Nurburgring in it this summer, getting to Santa Pod a few times I expect and getting to a few meets in the South East

Been spending the last few weekends sorting out bits on bobs, LED rain light fitted as a rear fog, washer bottle in the back just for the rear wash/wipe, refitting interior to turn it back into a road car and taking things apart to modify for my liking.

Will be getting interior bits carbon dipped soon. Will get some pictures up soon.

Then a full service in order and start enjoying it! Can't wait!
