hey im dan i don't acctaly own or drive this car but it's my dad's
and he's to much of a bum to make this thread himself.
so i decided to do it myself

this story starts of with my dad killing his 1999 r34 skyline gtt
drunk dude crashed on m4 he swerved to miss, and hit a paramedics ford parked in hard shoulder.

so he phoned around a few places i told him to phone and he found a lovely yellow gtt
so part exchanged it and payed the rest towards it.

we striped the parts of the red skyline which we wanted to keep seats, turbo etc
the skylinepart.com guy came an collected the car an took the red one away
so if you guys want gtt parts talk to ant at skylinepart.com

pictures of dead skyline are as follows



as you can possibly see the wheel smashed up and kinda screwed the arch big time also caused major chassi damage

bent upper wishbone

snaped brake line and as you can see the lowerwishbone riped the mountin point on the subframe



ripped due to collision

HKS turbotimer
HKS sqv blow of valve black limited
Exedy lightend flywheel 30% lighter

Ouch shame about the red r34 but this looks like a nice little project, be sure to keep us up to date. Sounds like it's gonna have some poke lol.
I would strongly advise coilovers. Got Cusco coilovers and japspeed front strut brace on mine and the handling is awesome! Even when I just had the coilovers the car feels so planted round corners. Tell your dad, whats the point in having all the power for a straight line if he can't go round a corner with it! Tell him to add a front strut brace to the list, best £50 i ever spent on the car as it improved the handling yet again.
Don't mean to sound like i'm having a dig, just think he shouldn't brush handling under the carpet so easily :)

Post some pictures when as you go along would love to see them. You should repaint it though. Yellow is just...:nonono: But, that's just how I feel about the color. Although with that hood it looks pretty damm nice.
