Sourced full R34 Gt-t brake setup :) bolted up pretty easily. Got some rda slotted and dimpled rotors, not sure what pads ill run, either greenstuffs or a1rms. Going to delete abs and use a non-abs master cylinder from a r33 or z32, or might go with a wilwood setup.

 

Engine bay almost stripped for sanding and respray.

 

Split headlights, cleaned em up inside and out and tinted the high beam lens :)

 

If anyone is interested in the head or the block Im trying to get rid of them and will let them go cheap....

 

Can also see extent of damage from the clutch explosion

There's a couple Neo's kicking around but I'm hesitant on buying one, I struggle with these things unless it's literally in a car running and appears flawless

 

Paranoia lol

 

Looking good mate, excited to see the mods you go

Yeh I know what u mean, compression tests are pretty good indicator.

Had to remove dash to remove loom. Such a mission. Doesn't help with an alarm, gauges, stereo etc.. all spliced with no consistency.

Bashed the crap out of the wall. Used a wire drill bit to clean it up to bare metal then filled the big holes with epoxy dyna steel.

 

Then using metal reinforced filler to make it smooth again

Not perfect. Might do one more layer of filler. Should look fine after paint and primer

One more layer with some easy sanding bog to leave a nice finish. Pretty much done with repairs.

 

Bought a motor and gearbox.

Came out of a 4 door automatic, 80,000kms stock as a rock, never boosted. Also got a mint r33 gearbox.

Paid a very good price :)

Also getting a mate to spray the engine bay a metallic gun metal grey like colour.

 

Not going to paint it until I test fit motor and box so I don't have to bash the nice fresh paint.
