    Been using the site to browse and look at things for sale but thought I'd sign up.

    From the North Yorkshire and Teesside area.

    Got an R32 GTST.
    Spec quite stock other than
    Staggered 16inch Enkei Racing S
    Just removed Tein coilovers for being too hard for road use and replaced with Diayama fully adjustables
    Exedy clutch
    Bleed valve
    Apexi (I think) exhaust from the Cat back.
    Nismo clocks
    GReddy Boost gauge
    Omoni oil pressure gauge
    OMP Corsia wheel
    Momo gear nob
    K&N air filter
    Blitz Turbo timer
    is about it I think.
    Some snaps

    As soon as I picked up the car after having it Imported police followed us to the garage to ask what the car was :cool:

    Simple bleed kit used to knock the boost up to about 12-13 psi until I get other supporting mods like FMIC, turbo elbow downpipe and potentially decat.

    I really like the enkeis but I wish they were 17inch instead of 16. And the fronts had the slight dish that the rears do.

    Been looking for a gtr front bumper but they don't come up often and are expensive so I through i would try to improve the look of the stock item by putting a flexible rhino lip onto it. While the bumper was off I also removed the fog light surrounds to open up the intercooler duct I didn't know they blocked.

    Overall I'm happy with it and recommend the lip to people considering it. Will get better photos shortly.

    I've got my Tein HR coilovers for sale on eBay. I'd love to post them on her to help them sell but I don't have enough posts yet darn it.

    So onto painting the hicas bar.

    Light sand brought it up really nice with a brushed aluminium finish. Nearly didn't bother painting it. But id already got the paint so got on with it.

    Then on went the filler primer

    I'm one for spraying things myself (wheels and stuff) and always wanted to try this colour on wheels but thought it might be a bit tooooo gold. This seemed like a good chance to see the finish

    And I found an old tow hook in the garage. So thought i would put it on because I still want to make the front end look a little more aggressive.

    Took the bumper off

    Mounted here on chassis
