Thanks for the words homie. As much as I tried to finish this car completely bogless, there needed to be a tiny amount (less than the side of a palm) on the driver side rear 1/4 as the PDR couldn't ever be 100% back to factory in that position, due to the lines of the body. Also, the rear bumper has filler, it was in a terrible state when I received it, and I can't PDR fibreglass lol

So glad to hear that man. Ive found most of my stuff on Yahoo Japan auctions, I search them probably around twice a day with various keywords in Japanese. But some stuff (Ganadors, ski racks) I had to persuade friends to sell them to me!

I think I've locked in the paintwork within 2 weeks finally. Once painted, the car will be put back on stands and then underbody restore will commence. All suspension will be disassembled, sand blasted, powder coated and be installed with Nismo bushes in them.

I'm currently at a crossroads with this car. I'm in a state currently where I can afford to buy an R34 GT-R (my all time dream car) but only have 2 garage spaces. I'm looking into putting a 4 point hoist in so I can put the VZ-R up in the air and the S14 underneath, with the GT-R in the next spot over. If I can't get a hoist in... This 14 may be for sale... Who knows, one step at a time.

Also have an S13 drift car which I might made a build thread for soon.. not sure what I'm doing with it.

Life happened again, just waiting for the paint shop to arrange a time to fit my car in. Here's a sorta photo dump in the mean time.

Had me T28 BB refurbished, literally looks brand new.




HKS 256 (stage 1) cams for the S14 SR. Should be sufficient with what i want to do with the car



In the mean time, started to work on my drift car finally. Should i make a seperate build thread for this? I don't know. Feel like its been done 509285 times and people are probably sick of seeing the same shit. anyways




Painted the engine bay in my garage as practise, this car is nowhere near mint and i'll try to not treat it like that, i promise. Its got widebody front and rear guards, BN? fibreglass front bumper, Cusco Coilovers, Cusco front + rear strut bar. I've got an RB20DET to go into this, ordered heaps of misc stuff (radiator + Fan shroud setup, steering rack bush, + more), R32 GT-R brakes and new rotors.





Got to see one of my favourite R34's again. I'll own you one day.

Thank you bud, trying to get one that will slot into one side of the garage. Should be good!

Not much has been happening lately, had a nose operation a month ago and wasn't able to lift anything in the event of bursting open my stitches - so nothing really has happened in terms of the S14.

S13 though - Bought a interior fire'd R34 GT-T RB25DET Manual wreck from a local auction house. Ripped out the RB and everything still good from the car over the last 3 days. Need to replace the engine loom, coil pack loom and 1 coil pack. Have already sourced all of that plus Spitfire coilpacks for that little bit of reliability and peace of mind. Can't wait to be hitting limiter with a 3" Straight piped Neo RB, isn't a better sounding engine out there.



Painted the brakes, have to paint the 2 pot rears i got from the skyline in the same colour for the dual-caliper rear end.

Spot on.

Piecing the car back together, got all the suspension off underneath and had it sent away to get sand blasted, powdercoated and the Nismo bushes pressed in.

I'm going to go with aftermarket rear camber arms because of the wheels i want to run will need a couple degree's negative due to unrolled guards. No regrets





Fallen in love with this colour, can't wait to take it outside.

Progress?



The 270R 3 piece bumper fits really well for the amount of work that it needed



Went to a local Japanese wrecker to pull out an immaculate dash (no photos, im sure you all know what a nice dash looks like) and a behind-dash wiring loom. When i got there i saw something quiet strange in the footwell...

OLD LOGO NISMO PEDALS + Dead pedal. Okay, its not that exciting. But i absolutely love old logo Nismo parts no matter what it is. Got them for an absolute steal and polished them up to their former glory.




Compulsory subframe bushes being burnt out photo

All the underbody parts have come back from the powdercoaters. Looks amazing, super happy with the results.




New bosch alternator


Another order from amayama.com, pretty much just door rubbers, bumpers, battery tray and a whole heap of brake line/fuel line/AC line clips.



Windows are in too, the genuine Nissan moulds look amazing. Well worth the money if you're going to do the job properly.




Sneaky optional shades



Sat the bumper and headlights on to get a first look on how it's going to look, almost there!

It's been a little, but as usual there's some progress.

Got married and spent 3 weeks in Japan and Thailand.

Quick Snap from the day, Thanks again to Terry for giving me the opportunity to have his 3 N1 GTR's (R32, R33 and R34) as car's for my wedding. The Holy Trinity of Nissan.



But anyways, back to this 14.







Fuel tank cleaned, new E85 rated line installed aswell.


ARC air guide acquired. So glad to have this. Only need an SR20DET VCT ARC spark plug cover now, so if any of you have one please let me buy it!





Trail fitted the BNIB 365a wheel today.



Changed up my plates for when its registered too, should be finished before christmas. Waiting for one last order from Amayama.com and then it should be good to go.



Have to figure out wheel specs too.. going to order these.



edit: Not sure why the photo quality is that bad. wow.
