    Right i think i need to put down a list of jobs so i have something to motivate me. Project thread helps me get motivated cose i feel the need to update as much as possible (Geek) so work alot harder.

    So forgetting any aesthetics it needs:

    Front and rear discs facing up
    Fit the goodridge braided lines i have here
    Front and rear lower arms
    Front and rear balljoints
    Fix oil leak from oil cooler sandwich
    Headgasket has been pissing oil since i fitted the engine
    Remap is a priority now only want about 320hp now, i want more aggro though
    I need to make new modded front knuckles

    Needs some welding for an mot (if i bother with getting it on the road)

    Oh and i need to cut the car out of the under growth :( its been left for a fair while now and its grown in.

    I have one or two ideas i want too try as well but my aim is too simplify my setup more so that its easier to fix and maintain. I just need to get out on track and do some skids asap.

    I have a decent break from things and spent mos tmy time doing overtime so i think iam ready to get back on it :thumbs:

    Yeah mate the normal ones will fit all the nissan subframes. S13 s14 s15 r32 r33 r34 ect ect

    And the offset bushes are for fitting the s14 frame into s13 chassis and i think s14 frame into r32 chassis

    How do you get those offset bushes lined up? There's probably a really easy way I just can't figure it out.

    Don't suppose your selling any of the offset bushes are you?

    Iam pretty sure i have another set left, i need to double check my pms and pending paypals and then i can let you know.

    The pretty much align themselves because the frame is 10mm or so wider and a bit longer also. The offsets all point inwards and i have made them so there is a clearance fit between the frame and bush, its snug fit but enables the bush to turn in the frame, and if you uenough grease itll bolt up square.

    Ill drop you a pm tonight matey :)

    Cheers
    Kev

    Looking good, been very tempted to get myself one of these to start drifting as the GTR is good fun but not that great for controlled sideways action :)
