r33 from iceland *updates moved to post 1*

Got my friend to take my car for a photoshoot since I didnt have any good pictures of it after all the changes.

ive owned this r33 since I was 17 (2007) and driven it around 10.000 miles since than haha I only drive it on the summers :D

2008-2009 the car looked like this:



but after 18" wheels, coilovers, topsecret bumper etc etc

2011










Really like the pictures he took :D

love it low (the wheels are 18x9.5 et20, maybe i might add small spacers all around for more stance)

next thing is adding more power (it should be around 300bhp)

Link to my friends flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/gudnir33

decided i was tired of the black wheels and the plastic chrome bolts looked silly



here are the plastic chrome bolts drilled out



on my stitch 3-piece 17x8.5 and 17x10 while the 18" are getting more lively color



sitting low in the driveway



and than the rest of the painting progress





the rustfree bolts instead of the plastic chrome bolts

under the bonnet mods are fuel regulator, greedy intake plenum, HKS mushroom air intake, motor fan delete (running 2x electric fans) Hid projectors from 2004-05 corvette, Splitfire coilpacks, iridium sparks, greedy profec b boostcontroller, and 3" downpipe plus hks Hi-silent pipe exhaust with no cataclystor just the 5" backend, aluminium cooler, front mount intercooler (going for a bigger one since that one is too small for the top secret bumper, oil catch tank and some other small things :cheers:
