Johnathan's R32 GTS-t project (update pics)

well thought about time i got some pics up,
my r32 has been in country 1.5 years but stored for near enough that time. i bought it of a buy who used it once from what i can gather. it is on road in two weeks and i carnt wait. and goin to keep this as a nice little diary so can see the progress haha

mods so far from japan-
trust cat-back
hks mushroom induction kit thing, tho dont know which one
blitz turbo timer
bltiz dv
momo steering wheel thingy

prob with it tho
clutch bearings i think have gone
some scrathes and grazes on all 4 corners, slight dints from what looks like transit over here.

just need to take it for a nice loing drive and see if there is anythin else. shouldn be, as didn seem to be when i got it, but i got it for a bargan price from a lad my dad knows so all went well haha.

im going to use the car for a bit of track, lots of drag racing, some drifting. so bit of everything haha. like i say on road 2 weeks, hopefully see you guys at jap fest.

here some pics, tho it does need a good clean and polish and will be gettin a little photoshoot done when wheels and coilovers soon are on and cleaned up in couple of weeks

I'm surprised how much of a difference the new wheels look! Quite a big improvement (mine is rolling on the standard 16's).

The front 'chrome' grille is very easy to remove and respray.

Looks like a big offset. I have 8.5's and my front and 9.5's on my rear and they just sit inside the arches, with the inner lip flattened..

tbh i like them being wider, tho i will be getting it flared. 200quid a side tho, and so much other stuff i need to try and do over winter. oh well.

the other prob is what to do about painting it. my mates dad paints hot rod's, and as offered to do my skyline, and dyla's clio(which will have a 1.7 volvo turbo in, shud be fun) not nowt, just paint and bits. but dont know wether to keep it black. or maybe white with a blue pearl.

or anyone got any ideas for a paint colour?

well couple things now, all repairs

aux belt is starting to fling pieces of belt about, so going to have a look at weekend when im back from training on sat to take it off and get another. hopeing the tensioner is easy to do.
oil leak, but reckon got that fixed, will find out on sat.
sunroof is still leaking. so going to be gettin on with that.
i reckon, strip the roof lining, hopefully then see fixings for sunroof, take out, line some perspex or plastic or somat else light undernearth sealed. then sheet of carbon on top of that sealed in, but so its at the roof level. howpfully get that done when finnaly get some money and can buy the parts.

changed plans for the exterior, type m sideskirts and gtr front bumper and bonnet, or another aftermarket bumper if there is one same price as gtr one or cheaper.
after getting these done when money allows hopefully next couple months, along with rear archs flared and coilovers to give it a nice stance. just waiting on the money haha.

but first a few repairs as i emtnioned. will elt you knwo how they go.
oh also goin to upgrade the speakers cos there all ****ed.
