Project Fullyloaded R334 Wide ass!

Well folks, I have been threatening to do it and promised myself I wouldn't start this thread until work began. Well work has begun so let's kick things off. I have always loved the looks of both the R33 and the R34 but particularly the front end of the R34. So why not combine the two and make a Wide arch kit at the same time. Now I am going for subtle instead of an aggressive wide arch. Also the body shop company I am using believes in doing things right, so the wider front wings and rear wings will be custom made out of metal, not fiberglass.

So here's what she looked like when I dropped her off to the body shop!



Start of the rear end strip, remove rear bumper and lights. This is a 16 year old car but not in bad nick for it's age.



The front end stripped ready for the front wings to be converted from R33 GTST to R34 GTR. The old R33 wings will be used combined with the R34 to make the right shape and fitment for the body.



As I am going for subtle, I chose 25mm spacers and this is what the stance should look like bare in mind the arches will be slightly wider than the wheels.



Making up the template for the wide arch at the rear.



Rear diffuser arrived and trial fitted to the car.



Now a picture with the rear bumper trial fitted and the rear wing taking shape.

Looking good so far, reckon you're going to need 30mm on the back though

You could be right Mike but I am going for a more subtle look than a pure box grafted on to the rear. I think too wide looks ridiculous. We shall see, trust my body shop guy to make the right decision.

Flush is what IMO you should aim for as equaly by having the wheels to far in it just looks like a plastic fantastic. Keep up the good work though

Starting realize how expensive this conversion is becoming.

R34 wings £100 (lucky to get for that price)
R34 Bumper £350
R34 Bonnet £350
R34 bonnet hinges £110
R34 headlights £500 found some in hong kong, should be £900
Rear Bumper £150
Spacers £200
£130 for petrol cap and funnel

Not to mention labour and paint

Have you bought the spacers yet?

Yes they are lol, was just about to say you can see they are on. Marco tells me I need to get 10mm plane spacers to put on the studs as they are too long for the wheels. He could cut them down but I want to get some different wheels in the end

Well just agreed to buy this off JDMGarage, thanks for negotiating on the price chaps, great service as usual. The R33 GTST front slam panel will be cut out and the R34 GTR Slam panel welded in.

Good project... Should work out well.

Out of interest, What will you do with the old front wings ?
