Thought it about time I started this now that I have had it just over a couple of months...

So here we go...
The day I got her home...



As I got her...









oh - and a recent bill that was just a smidge under 4k...


Full spec...
1995 R33 GTR V-Spec in Midnight Purple

Just over 65500 miles with certifcates etc etc

417bhp
368 torques
NGK Iridium Plugs
Splitfire coilpacks
Twin Apexi induction kit
EBC disks all round (and yes they do stop you lol)
Red Dot racing pads (still squeeling )
Rota GTR's (265*35*18's all round)
JapSpeed cat back exhaust
Nismo Downpipe
Decat
plenty of history and mot's/tax disks

As for condition - interior and engine - great (though door cards are crud and will be stripping them out to send off to LSC Interiors to get the leather sorted (you'll see the back ones are GTR type rather than leather due to an apparent speaker removal).
The exterior is poor though - few scratchs and some stone chips etc

So thus the project begins

First little project was easy (5 mins top)...

Decided to mod the same as I've successfully done before for the twin headlight mod (full and dipped bean at once)...


switch removed and cleaned...

Litterally a couple of good sized dob's of solder (a little scratching to the surface first for good measure), and job done...

Next was to sort the poorly door card's...



And the fronts went from this...



To this...




And the rears went from this...



To this...





And all i'm gonna say is teh front's were a doddle to remove - but the backs gave me a headache as the seat belts etc all need removing :(

The next important thing was the Hicas that would light up after about 10 Minutes of driving. Researching that was a laugh as sooo many possibles.



First thing to check was easy - the hicas/rear power steering fluid...

Yup - was over the max mark on the bottle. Quick couple of sppon fulls out and off for a drive.



Job done :D



Next though was the hicas coming in at the wrong speed. Not so hard to source as I had a receipt to show a kph-mph chip had been installed (yuk).

So - dash came out, clocks the lot.



The Chip...







So that out of the way - wires all soldered up and wrapped up - on to the speedo for the usual hardwired mod...



Rear of Speedo Unit before...





Cleaned up and drying in the dust proof high ventilation enviroment ;)...





And job finished within a few minutes...





The result - the chip was causing the speedo to read at 80mph on the clock when actually by gps we were only doing 77 (a little out huh). After the mod was in did 80mph and the gps was reading 79mph - close enough for me :D

At this point the dash was becoming less (what with a different sound system going in)...





But - needing something to feel please about I decided to loose the green clocks and go blue - but I can't have a blue clock and a green aircon so best I did that too...







And how they look...





Close up - BLUE :D





Soooo much kinder on the eye at night
