Had some time to kill this afternoon, so i decided to put in the rear coilovers and Nismo tower brace.



Torqued to spec




Perfect height IMO, Not too low, not too high. Remember, i'm not going for the whole "drift/track" look.



I'll be putting the front coilovers in along with the front strut brace soon, hopefully on that day i can take it straight to get a wheel alignment done. Don't feel like buying another set of RE003's anytime soon.

Got the JDM "Silvia" third brake light option today.

Didn't get a photo of it when i took it out of the box, but i will get a standalone photo soonish.

Looks amazing at night! Love it!




I'm thinking i may wire it just to turn on with the parkers, not the brake pedal. I think that will be more better. Have it on 100% of the time at night instead of it just being on with the brakes. thoughts?

Yep, you can also get the same ticket for having coilovers, or a front mount intercooler, or an aftermarket shift knob lmao!

NSW is the nanny state of the world, everyone knows that.

So with my Navan side skirts a week away, the time has come to make my mind up about the wing. Do i leave put my wing on (Greddy Gracer) or put a Kouki wing on? Or no wing?!

What do you think...



Don't mind my disgusting facials and terrible selfie, this was fun.

What did they get you for?

Don't know if you've seen me around I've got an identical S14 with ghetto black bootlid in the same city! It's been cool watching you hoard all that trick stuff. Keen to see where this goes.

You from Wollongong??

Its kinda an old photo, they didn't get me for anything, my car was completely legal at the time. Cops in Wollongong are pretty cool, I've got the up most respect for our boys in blue.

And thanks for the kind words, I hope it turns out great, I'm going to pick up a set of JDM S14 front guards today, no indicator holes! The navan front bar has indicators on the side of that so it will still be legal!

Yeah dude! Born and raised.

Aw cool - saw plenty of them out over the last week but my car is pretty stock looking so don't normally get hassled. Looking at yours I didn't think you'd have much issue either.

Yeah sick! I have similar plans, just waiting on funds to let me pull the trigger on some wheels, a navan front bar and getting my new bootlid and Kouki rear bar painted and on the car.

Can I ask who's bringing in all your gear from Yahoo? PM if you prefer

Loving the Navan front bar. Have to get 2 side bumper indicator plugs and they will go in along with the JDM guards tomorrow!



In love with how the ARC intercooler sits!

9/10 condition Navan floor mats! Only the badges are slighty damaged, should come up good with a cut polish.

Thanks Zilvia user "ihatemysilvia"




I really should get the 1/4 window shades, but they are super expensive.. Anyone wanna sell me a set, send me a message. Only thing i need to complete my Optioned lighting kit.

Managed to get the front coilovers in aswell as the Nismo front tower brace. Awaiting wheel alignment. The car feels amazing with this suspension, planing on replacing every single bush soon when i take the car off the road to do paint.




Also need to order some HEL Braided brake lines with some brake fluid aswell.

Fitted my EBC Yellowstuff pads and rotors today. I've ordered a set of HEL Braided brake lines to go with them, should be here come friday. Calipers also got some love with some High-temp black paint, although i may get them powder coated in the future.




Some random photos:




I think the wing has grown on me... Please hurry up, skirts!

A little while has past, didn't really like the idea of having a no-name cat.

So i picked this really good condition APEXI one for a great price from New Zealand.





Side skirts turned up aswell! they're in absolutely mint condition.



Big thanks to Bardan @ Import Monky Sydney for importing all my large parts from Japan. Top bloke, recommend him all day!

Getting a start on restoring the aluminium light up Sill panel covers. The LED's didn't work so i have ordered a couple more EL LED Strips to go in them. Spent about 20 mins on them today, now i have a good idea on how to get the brushed aluminium look back to them, like OEM! Will continue these ASAP.


Before


And how it will look when finished. (bottom part is done)


Then this happened. A little bigger than golf ball sized hail. S14 got hit pretty good. Paintless dent removal has to happen again...



Awaiting Braided brake lines + New fluid.

HEL Braided lines came in, also picked up some brand new Nismo Engine mounts from Japan.



Built a shed at my property, finally have a place to work and call my own.



Random boost gauge photo, i need to find more of the old school mechanic Blitz gauges!



Trail fitted the side skirts to see how the car will kind of look when its 1 colour. IDK if i should keep this wing.




Bought a complete set of brand new Nismo bushes for the whole car, they should be here soon.


Went to a small Skyline NSW Meet and saw my dream car... Midnight purple has to be my favourite colour ever. Bayside blue comes up high aswell!






One day i'll own one... Just seems that the R34 GTR gets more expensive by the month. They're going up much quicker than my wages do, naturally!

OEM optional and ARC is a bad combo for the wallet

You've committed to this now, I'll keep feeding you rare parts

Keep up the good work, refreshing seeing a clean Silvia in AUS.
