Re: ...For those of you who give a ****!

yea....wheels will be a 5-star/Black w/Silver rim,
the front grille will be changed over to an open mouth grille when he paints it
and sends it to me, the Carbon hood is on the car but there will be a new one as this ones damaged a bit from shipping, i just installed white face tach templates and will be doing the boost & A/F guages on the pillar later on, already have the footpedals installed, and swapped out the bezel surrounding the tach cluster as it was cracked. I still have to make customs stops for the needles on the cluster then i can re-assemble it back together. Then ill move onto the APEXi turbo timer. Shitty part is.....i tried to install my B&M short shifter kit to find out i need to go under the car to access the bolts on the top side of the Trans to remove the old shifter from the base, problem was....damn cars so ****ing low i couldnt get my tiny jack under the bitch? lol


i have sooooooooooo much to so tonight! hehhe

Re: ...For those of you who give a ****!

yea, a Skyline is definetly a Skyline (R32,R33,R34) but its the engine that makes you excited!

this RB25DET only with a BOV and Power intake sure ****in moves and its only boosting at 5 PSI, If i were to just bump it to 10 PSI this car would be sick forget all the sweet parts these things have!

anyhow.....

Dash is still apart as im working on these guages....


RB25DET installed....


RS-1TYPE Seats from Japan....


Excuse the mess and the crap images as its in my dark gloomy garage. As soon as i can get day time images ill do so....

thanks

Re: ...For those of you who give a ****!

like i said many time before.....
ive tried to keep civil about this car in 2 other threads!
ive told you guys that i can understand why it was you guys never believed
me on this deal. All i had were x3 images of this Skyline directly off of TSS website and only updates that i knew of from them. Getting images from TSS was impossible, they dont move to fast on something like this as they are EXTREMELY busy. When i went on Saturday to get my car i showed up around 9:30AM and from that point 3-4 guys at any given time were busting thier asses to get my car pieced together. The damn electric sunroof was ****ed and took them 3 hours or so to get it fixed. Then the seats with rails and other miscelaneous parts aswel. But then when it came to tuning the new RB25DET engine became a headache (the tune was fine itself....) but it was funny!! While idling the car and having the onboard handlheld plugged in to do the tun was going well but when he took it for a blast to see the results it would bellow smoke from somewhere....This happened several times so we threw it on the hoist to clean it up and see where the leak was coming from.......and nothing?? WTF right? lol
But after frustration starting to settle in on all 3 of us at around 10:30PM we decided to pull the turbo oil return line and elbow right off to examine it, what we found out was the flange that was supposed to mate with the turbo was warped! it looked like a bannana! haha!!
We got a new elbow and used Nissan Goo with a new gasket and that was the stop to that ****. Then we headed home and i arrived about 3AM or so...
I slept for 3-4 hours at most then started piddling with the car but i was too damn tired to even deal with that nor the lowsy images i posted here.

I never got the brakes painted lastnight so maybe today but i have to deal with my RPM guage as it seems to be dead right now after pulling out all the needles to install the white face plates. Arggh!

anyhow....ill definetly slap pics up when i get em'
and i have no grudge against anyone on this site....even CivicHatch!

peasicles!

Re: ...For those of you who give a ****!

I'm glad I never fired insults at you in the other threads, now I can ask you some questions. Where are you located? If you're in the U.S.A, how did you get the car imported? Why is the car in such bad shape for the price? Are you near New York? I want to come see it.

No you didn't. But I digress.


It's an interesting car, to be sure, but I still don't see how this, aside from the novelty of a RHD car would be better than spending the same amount of money on an S2K or 240SX or AE86, even. From what I can tell, it doesn't have a whole lot more performance.

And no, I'm not hating. Just asking questions.

Re: ...For those of you who give a ****!

to answer a few questions....

The body is in sweet condition, its the interior ive had to spend quite a bit on aswel as work to it, the white face guages are now installed and the RPM guage i got working.

Everyone has their preference on a car, Ive loved Skyline for many years now!
sonce ive owned 240z, 260z and 280z's but now the opportunity arose so i went for it! As for AE86, the performance shop here in my town is doing up one with a turbo, and its nice! plus im sure that thing will be awesome fun!

I live in Canada, not the States.....

This is definetly a project car, i still have so much work to do before its ready for our car show in August. But itll be alot different then what you see now.

as soon as i pull this car out of my garage ill snap some better shots.

Re: ...For those of you who give a ****!

not sure exactly what suspension is on this car, but ill be calling to see if its adjustable. I want it up just a tad from where it is now imho.
I bought this car making sure that 2 things were in good shape, first the body was in +1 shape, then the dashboard was great!
After that the rest of the interior was shot but this is where ive spent most my time and efforts along with cash. New seats, headliner, electric sunroof unit, short shifter kit, white face set and boost/AF guages, new custom shift & e-brake boots, etc...
same with the trunk, i just need to get fabric for the bottom liner as its ratty but the rest is also in +1 shape!

im getting there now, i just need a new rear console, steering wheel, hub and shift **** to purchase. then from there im under the hood.

Re: ...For those of you who give a ****!

1. Exhaust is being changed this week, i dont like that big *** fart cannon either.

2. The wire you speak of is temporary, its from the Lazer detector.

Like it or not.....your opinion!

Re: ...For those of you who give a ****!

Removed the rear seat, rear carpeted deck and stereo from the console. Installing something to atleast listen to until i get a chance to buy a nice CD deck later on. I went to the upholstery shop and handed in both the E-brake and Shift boot today to have it redone in Suede. Also got an update and the front grille arrived today, so theyll paint it blue to match and then paint the mesh black as ive painted the lower one black yesterday.

No word on the wheels but i know this will be a few months as they too are on a container from Japan. HICAS lockout is on backorder and still no word on a new carbon hood.

all in good time!
