    Not masses of progress recently.

    Been trying to do as much as I can here and there.

    IMG_20200327_161958. managed to get the handbrake assembly together on both sides and Bolts replaced. Have some issues with alignment with my Geomaster 2 but hopefully slide motorsport will rectify as I cannot weld and don't fancy it.

    Test fit new vertex bumper (just placed on, no mounting. Seems to fit decently
    IMG_20200331_144845.
    IMG_20200331_145043.

    Had a bit of OCD so painted the wiper motor and new engine cover I picked up as I wasnt a fan of the clear one.

    IMG_20200401_153801.

    IMG_20200402_152345.


    I also but the bullet and bought a compressor which is now here along with 6" and 2"sander and pads.

    So you all know what that means.

    Not going to reveal the colour yet tho

    My compressor has arrived and some sanding pads etc a few days later you know what that means.

    Engine all ready with new cam cover, just needs two longer top bolts and a polish up again.

    IMG_20200406_123501.

    I had a quick hour testing the sander decided to take it back to the OEM base colour. Pretty decent so far

    More to come.

    So the car went off to Slide Motorsport to have the exhaust fabricated, some welding repairs etc etc.

    Also we test fitted some Wide Front Wings but soon decided against it and went back to single vented.

    The exhaust is 4" downpipe with Wastegate Reroute, to 3 inch full system, a small midbox and a jap can on the end :)

    Also all engine bay intercooler pipework and air filter intake pipework was completed.

    Ok so the timeline is a little all over the place but all applies.

    I sold the Corbea RRB Recliners and picked up some Corbeau Clubsports in Mint condition as i wanted something fixed and more suitable for the car and they were perfect. My daughter loved having a go in them.

    261101810_328093782093155_8524896564344699050_n.


    Still waiting for paint and engine work, i decided to order parts ready so i ordered a new Open R8 Coil Bracket from Zeroth Industriez

    261163456_1414868185575081_1644102701476891936_n.


    Then i decided to order an LED kit for the rear lights, which was a right paint to cut and fit!

    260591358_345635517329753_2374066615987535848_n. 260515813_1075023253351114_2092377758760080415_n(1).


    A set of Ganador mirrors came up and i couldn't resist the temptation for this purchase.
    260476720_238765278351589_4044193248944806263_n.


    I bought a set of GTR BREMBO's but shortly after sold them as i wanted something a little bigger. So then i sourced some K sport Brakes and Discs that needed a refurb, they are waiting to be painted Porsche Yellow :)


    260464955_634229267706823_1671798607115410926_n.

    Decided to do a Windscreen Wiper Motor Mod and cut an Asahi Beer can and made it fit.

    Another picture of the K Sport Brakes

    The Set of Ganadors

    261793424_265009255673734_736408305977233745_n.

    I sold the Otaku Style Inlet manifold as i ordered a Greddy from Japan which took a few months to arrive.

    When it arrived i got the turbo housing and the Manifold powdercoated in Crackle Black.

    261704293_432215851948085_6358458864549391050_n.

    This leads me onto the Gearbox now, i sold the RB25 DET Conversion i bought and picked up a CD009 Gearbox, i then ordered the PMC Conversion Flywheel and Gearbox Adaptor including a Tilton Race Clutch.


    261707343_593526048577179_5405416802222599264_n.

    Again more expenditure^^
    Bought a Haltec IC7 Dash so i could have everything onscreen, what a lovely piece of kit it is, and i utilised a dash mount from Boosted International.

    262025917_219254393659088_5592807371994168854_n.

    The next few pictures will be explained, in an odd order.

    I was forever back and forth regarding my DE+T Engine and always wanted a DET NEO. Luckily a RB25NEO Head came up for sale so i bought it, and also a Fresh NEO Block, so i then had an engine ready on the side to be forged and put back in. I went for a Custom Widened RB26 Sump with the front CUT and Shut as the neo block was from a stagea. It was also Powdercoated.


    261420834_293439806020259_1253562750947472800_n.

    Test Fitting some body panel, including a DMAX Copy Wing.

    260464687_1301855943612347_7516436996545924285_n.


    Also have a brand new Greddy Rail to go with the intake, and then soon 1000cc injectors.
    260384796_466570514998549_6113421826857882122_n.


    PMC Adaptor Plate.

    260128798_3057320597854616_492061538402853701_n.

    Planted Technology Seat Brackets from USA to go on the Corbeau Clubsports

    260752076_658896655516945_6310731747948257462_n.

    Heavy Likewise Pro Gearknob

    260768673_1511859629195704_3993252196055311001_n.


    This was prior to picking up the DET Engine, it was all back together somewhat. Looking rather presentable.

    260487388_3812286912330510_71263487262044275_n.

    Bought some bargain Rota Grids for drifting with some deent tyres too.
    260489774_3209091499368902_1483337015935617978_n.


    Then sadly the engine came back out so i could sell the DE.

    261400984_441733587354520_4978783455789229738_n.


    Were nearly back up to the current progress.

    I missed the fact that whilst the car was taking so long i wanted something RWD to enjoy.

    So i picked up my LS400 V8, completely stock, that was until, i put coilovers, spacers, wheels, private plate, LED Starlight roof and an exhaust on it. Loved this car.

    But as you all know me i change my mind ALOT, yes a few times.

    The car was sadly sold a few months later after some fun, so i could focus on the Skyline and get it sorted once and for all.

    Back to the Skyline

    I neede a new Throttle Body, so my options were Plazmaman or DBW. So i went for the wild option of an Electronic Bosch Throttle Body kit from Outsider Garage including some other goodies such as Splash Plates, Half Moons and block off Plates.

    261445067_4942531679091764_344369078934827095_n.


    The car remained at the Workshop at RGS and just had the engine out.

    261555497_623939999048325_5020021344195804090_n.


    It was then pushed round to the Bodyshop next door with no Transmission or Engine in.
    261466403_1040897593421917_3518970493986083873_n.


    Decided against using BN Skirts and went with the Vertex skirts i bought many months ago.
    261195589_707576296889281_512608659642313823_n.

    Vented Bonnet installed
    260475031_495762791556615_6118405377039550117_n.



    This is pretty much where i am at.

    I have missed out things such as some New Driftworks Suspension Arms and other small additions.

    So where do i stand?

    - The car is currently at the Body shop awaiting a full overhaul including full rear and door overfenders!
    - The roof is going to be chopped as the sunroof was badly welded up, and i have a roof cut.
    - Full Vertex Kit to be installed
    - Cage to be full sprayed

    - Car to go back to the Stock 732 Metallic Pearl Black.

    Engine is currently awaiting to be built, including Fully Forging, Trigger kit, New Injectors and then everything to go back together.



    ***BLACK FRIDAY UPDATE***

    I have purchased a Link G4X to manage the Dash and other Electronic Kit and Sensors, so hopefully this should work out well.

    I sold the generic Intercooler and Radiator, and bought a Mishi R Line Intercooler and Rad in Black ready to be installed.

    I will try and update you as the progress at the body shop continues, but for now this is where i am.

    Apologies for the mix up of pictures and posts but 18 months of progress missed is very hard to put in order and include everything as i know i have probably forgot tons of other things.
