First of, Hello! So I found myself scrolling through the pages of a well know social media site, when I come across this, Rice-kitted, carbon wrapped R33, after looking at it for a few hours and thinking up my options, I messaged the owner about the car for some more information. The next day I was off to view the car, once I arrived, the car was in a sorry state, one rear arch with surface rust, a ghastly front bumper, no grille, tinted windows, GTR boot spoiler cracked and hanging on, boost controller set so high it hit fuel cut at 3000rpm!! A genuine seibon Carbon Bonnet which had been Carbon wrapped???? No Rear seats or seat belts, drivers window not working, either a manifold blowing or exhaust blow, Amongst other little bits and bobs that need fixing. Heres the pictures before I Viewed But although I saw all the problems I found, the car had a decent spec. Splitfire coilpacks Trust Radiator Japspeed Front mount intercooler 3 inch divorced downpipe Invidia RSR decat back exhaust Bilstein shocks and springs all round Apexi Air filter Greddy Profec Spec 2 GTR spoiler full service history with 2 cambelt changes a folder full of receipts including shipping documents and loads of receipts a Print out for 302BHP on a dyno graph. Toad Alarm system So after the test drive the bloke selling the car was needing to get rid of the car before moving back to America, (USAF Military), He asked if I was interested in the car, We struck a bargain of a deal and I was now the owner of a 1993 R33 GTST. The car sat at my parents whilst I sold my current daily driver Golf GTI R32 replica. First Jobs: Strip window tints Turn down all Boost settings to stock Service the car Hoover the car and clear all the crap out Wash it as it hadnt been washed for god knows how long strip off carbon wrap from bonnet get hold of some rear seats and belts get a new front bumper get a new grille find out where exhaust leak is coming from Window tints off and took forever to get the glue off the windows, plus doing this with the doors closed and using thinners was not the best idea!! also removed the carbon fibre wrap from the bonnet, which revealed a beautiful weaved bonnet, but the clear coat on top had been badly damaged, so will need re-lacquering. gave the car a good service and checked oils. Fitted some new rear seats and belts, Supplied from my local Breakers GDUK!! Top blokes The Exhaust leak was coming from the Downpipe of the turbo, Out of 6 bolts only 2 where half tight, and all the others where missing! As i am going to be replacing the manifold, manifold studs and nuts, turbo studs and nuts and downpipe studs and all gaskets i just put some nuts and bolts onto the downpipe for now. My new bumper I found and the Misses bought it for my birthday present Woo!! Heres the fitting pictures: Also fitted new Nismo Gear Knob and Boost Gauge to keep and eye on the PSI. Fitted a new Grille, Once again From GDUK jap breakers!! Got a New Manifold for a Bargain!! And Finally a picture of the engine bay after a good clean etc New set of jobs; New Rear over fenders Cut out rear arches to remove rust and fit overfenders Fit new Vented front wings Repair GTR rear spoiler and re-fit Order and fit my new BC BR Gold coilovers Replace bushes Find some Bucket seats and harnesses fit 350z front brakes re-do rear brake lines rebuild rear calipers and new disks give car full respray or wrap carbon canards carbon front splitter Oil cooler catch can air filter cold housing and ducting ducting from front bumper to front brakes So a fair bit of work for myself over the next couple of months, hopefully should be looking half decent before JAPSHOW at santapod.
