Here was my GTR



Luckily the guy who bought my GTR had a Tommy Kaira R34 which was super clean, low milleage and he had owned it for years so i know it was looked after. A few people moaned because we ripped a Tommy kaira apart but it was a looked after car so didnt want to buy a shed :)

4 weeks later i picked up my car and over the moon!




Since collecting i have flatted everything down, machine polished it, fiddled with the suspension set up, changed the wheels and fitted some buckets.





Getting there now!

Looking good, But them graphics are not my cup of tea but each to there own :)

Noticed a drill in one of the pic's, how were the body panels attached ?
Just wondering why the body shop didn't wet sand and buff it ?
Was that so you got it done for a cheaper price :)

so thursday was the first proper test of the car, gave it a proper hammering alday thursday at rockingham and was happy with how it went! slight rubbing on the loom which i need to sort, alighment needs sorting as not enough rear grip and also hit th tyre wall causing the rear bumper to break. other than that it was perfect!








also all the livery has now been taken off!

havnt updated this in ages.... and tbh havnt done a massive amount!

fitted modifed huds, extended steering arms, longer tie rods and 30mm extended lowers arms:-

fitted a new ztune spitter, gtr rear bumper and nismo side skirts:-


swapped the wheels for some 19" weds cerberus 2's, then realised the dishes were tiny, so put the rears on the front and bought new 5inch dishes to go back on the rear.





planned to do some engine work over winter but realised while its reliable and no issues ive kept it how it is. :)

only think left is paint the interior, get the dash flocked and fit a bolt in cage.

Thanksssss
