I have some small plans for her to do. Nothing crazy or hype worthy, but I'll post some updates after the winter comes and this thing goes to the garage.

Those tails on the supra are immensely good.
I enjoy the level of flake in your paint.

It's winter now and it fucking sucks.
I just want to drive my cars, but oh well. At least I have now time to work on these.
I went to Japan for a month few weeks back and it was a blast. Amazing country, amazing people and the best of all, amazing cars!!


S13 has just been collecting dust and R34 got some new coils! I bought her impul x öhlins sub-reservoir adjustable ones that I found from UpGarage!
These are so cool! Not cool as the 326powers on the S13, but still cool as heck. Only two problems with them are, front upper mounts are bad.
I have to buy new ones and I don't know if this is low enough for me. Rear end looks pretty good, but it sits now 10mm lower than the front.
Both ends are lowered to the lowest point the coils are letting me go..

I still can not figure out if I'd rather like to go with lowered "show" style or something more like "track" stuff.
She needs new tires so I need to make the decision quick!

Can you not lower the front spring seat? I know typically we only want to adjust the lower mount height, but some suspension companies (MCA for example) say that lowering from the spring seat is actually better. Idk how lol.

I did lower them from the spring seat. Öhlins manual said that there is no adjustment in lower mount height as it is a sub-tank version and connects to the lower part of the coilover. Not really a issue as you can just get shorter springs and that would solve the problem, but I am looking for performance so this height will do just fine for now.

TBH the height is fantastic.
Everyone is just so used to seeing stance cars, they freak out when someone has a usable, reasonable height.

I think it's just weird seeing a car with over 3" ground clearance next to the S13 as it only has under an inch. Makes the Skyline look like a SUV!

I've been looking for tires now. I decided to NOT go with the Toyo Proxes R888R as I drive the car as an daily at summer. Usually at summer time I drive around 6000miles so I need like three sets of soft compound tires to make it trough the summer. Welp, gotta figure something else out.

Only thing sure for now is that I am going with 295/30r19 size and looking for a flush fitment to the fender with tire like on the Attkd GT-R sometime ago.


Maybe some Michelin Pilot Sports could do the job well, but I'll look into them soon as possible. I need to roll the rear fenders so I need the tires mounted before doing that. I have a plan that I might take the rear coils out for a test purposes while doing the rolling. I can bolt the wheel on place, lift it up with a jack underneath and see that the tire is not hitting anywhere so there will be no rubbing whatsoever.

Welp, once again things got a bit out of hand with the Skyline. We decided to clean up the engine bay with some small stuff and so far I've removed compress housing, intake manifold, valve covers, timing belt cover, few wires, intercooler piping, water necks, wiring harness, catch can, air filter, overflow tank, windshield washer tank and other small bits...

The orange color had to go. I am going with this boring "black and polished" theme on this one for now. Turbo housing, plenum and piping will be black and valve covers etc.. polished. I hope it will look good for now. Once the engine is being built and removed from the engine bay I'll do this properly. I don't have time or interest to start relocating fusebox or start cutting and welding the engine bay I decided to go with the easy way. Hide it. Just fucking hide those hideous things. Aluminium, grinding and some bending we made these cover panels. Front edges of them will be left under the "cooling panel" that still needs to be bought.


Relocating boost controller, fuel pressure regulator etc.. small stuff under those panels will be giving the bay somewhat cleaner look. I hope.

When I bought it:


Where we are now:



Aaaaand as you know me, I love the styling of early 2000's.. Friend of mine sent me a message "Hey dude, I have few sets of early 2000's OG NEON underglow sets, I could sell you one of them". Well fuck yes dude!! I recieved them few days ago and installed them just few hours ago. They're so so much brighter than the cheapo led stripes I used to have on my Soarer. I love them!! Oh, also received my vinyl cutter this week... You see where this is going?








Do you guys even give a shit of these project topics or is everything on instagram todays? I used to love read some good projects. I love how they're still alive on states. Finland is 100% dead on these.

Hahaha, why not tho! It's only some vinyl and lights. They can be removed in few hours and never notice that they were there. Blame it on this guy.

I personally still like project threads, but you're right they're almost all gone except for super niche cars and car-specific forums.
