At last, a dream come true... My special R34 :)
 
Have been a member here for quite a long time, almost 6 years to be exact, and my dream was always to own a GT-R 34 and I still remember my first few posts and private msgs asking everyone whether they could sell their skyline to me :)
Was pretty much sure that the day was close, yet, I was completely wrong. Due to some health issues as well as financial I was forced to give up on that dream. Well, 5 years later and whilst I could have never imagined to actually own a true legend (at least to my own eyes), that day finally came on 25th of December 2013, which was pretty much my best Christmas EVER :clap:
That was the day I got my Millenium Jade 2002 Skyline G-R 34 VSpecII Nur and met a good friend (previous owner) :thumbsup:

Lovely! Have you got the wheel centres?

SkylineGTRCy 19th February 2014 07:23 PM

Thanks for your comments guys, I believe millennium jade is a "love or hate" color but I love it to bits. Toni mate I do have them but they're not in the best condition at the moment and I'm planning to change the wheels so I just kept them off the wheels, I also dare to say that I even like the looks of it ;)

The last pic has them on but maybe he took them off to clean

SkylineGTRCy 20th February 2014 04:15 PM

I've had the car for 1.5 month, not many changes done on the car so far since I am not going to work at the moment due to recovering from my hip surgery. Got these today in the mail though :clap: I believe new badges all around can change the looks of a car !

One of the first mods I do on pretty much every car I owned so far, is to remove the rear wiper, I just don't like the looks of it

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800...0/138/1jjw.jpg

Now on the downside, I found some minor paint bubbles on my strut tops, but I was lucky enough to find a Japan imported VSpecII shell locally and I bought the rust-free ones from it, just to be on the safe side because I know it's pretty hard to find a pair. Still can't believe the huge mistake Nissan did on the r33 and the r34 in regards to the strut towers. Most probably I will change them at a later stage.

Was also given this little thingie with the car, as well as a genuine Nismo overfender set which I haven't put on the car yet

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800...0/138/ui5b.jpg


Some of 2014 goals include:

19" x 10.5 wheels preferably Nismo LMGT4's IF I can find myself a set, which seems rather impossible, otherwise will go for TE37's

Nismo Side skirts
Nismo rear spats


And one pic of O'Connor as it sits at the moment :)

I never saw one up close, till the day I got it. Gotta say that the color is much nicer in the flesh. Photos don't do it justice, really!

GTaaaaaarrrrrr! 21st February 2014 07:48 PM

Superb car and spec mate :cool:

Axu 21st February 2014 11:41 PM

Very nice car and i like the color ;)

SkylineGTRCy 22nd February 2014 05:18 AM

Thanks for the comments guys!

drewzer 22nd February 2014 05:43 AM

Very nice, what has the old owner replaced it with, anything equally epic?

He has a lovely daughter now in his life and that gives him a lot of satisfaction to say the least, therefore an epic car is postponed for him now, but I have no doubt he'll make a good comeback at some point!

SkylineGTRCy 2nd March 2014 07:26 PM

Had some free time today and I thought it was a perfect time to remove my undertray for a refresh.

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/28/en4g.jpg

There was so much dirt and mud under that, so I decided to remove everything in order to clean them up as much as possible.

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800...0/600/iow5.jpg

Time for a really good clean up for the i/c as well, looks so faded and foggy will try and do it tomorrow.
What are your thoughts about removing the front lower grill of the bumper? I saw quite many r34's without it and they look even more aggressive.

Since most of the front was removed i thought it would be nice to bring the headlights/indicators/reverse lights as well as fog light, back to their former glory. I'm not very good at this so I will be taking them to a friend of mine who has a car paint shop and does this type of tasks as well.

So O'Connor now looks like this :bawling:

http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800...0/849/89h1.jpg

Will try to clean all things removed tomorrow, in order to have everything shining by the time my lights come back fm the shop. Will be also changing all rusty screws to st. steel ones whilst I'm at it.

Talski 4th March 2014 04:51 PM

loving the colour, good luck with your plans!

SkylineGTRCy 4th March 2014 05:50 PM

Thank you matey, wheels just ordered as well so I'm quite excited, the waiting part though is killing me :)

Kadir 4th March 2014 06:02 PM

Very nice. A refresh is always good. Hoping you are making a good recovery from your surgery.

Bennyboy1984 4th March 2014 06:08 PM

Lovely car mate! You really do have a dream right there!! Hope you recover soon from your surgery so you can enjoy this beauty.

SkylineGTRCy 4th March 2014 06:32 PM

Hi guys, thank you for your wishes, recovering just fine doc said it's ok to drive an auto car now but not a manual one at least for the next couple of months. Really gutted but as you can see I still deal with my car a lot :)

Kadir, love your car mate nismo bonnet arrived yet?

GTR-RICHARD-89 4th March 2014 08:20 PM

Love it in this colour, not jealous at all :P !

ROSSY-78 4th March 2014 10:57 PM

Very nice indeed mate! Love that colour :) keep up the good work!

RXXXIV 4th March 2014 11:30 PM

Poli oreo file!

Nice car you bought there. And how lucky have you been having found a set of GTR struts locally. Are there really that many GTRs in Cyprus already?

Which wheels have you ordered now? Did you manage to find a set of LMGT4s or did you go for the TE37s?

Kabz r35 Gtr 5th March 2014 12:33 AM

Nice car

SkylineGTRCy 5th March 2014 01:31 PM

Tks for the comments guys I'm doing the best I can given my situation at the moment

Efxaristw file !
Lucky indeed to find the strut tops locally but I felt so sorry for the car it was a very clean VSpecII once.. I'm guessing there are at least 5-6 r34's on this side of the island but I think only one NurSpec, all the others are Vspec's fm what i know. Due to the new regulations valid as from 01.2014, I'm almost sure that no other Skyline GT-R's will be imported. As for the wheels I quickly realised that Nismo LMGT's in 19" are extremely hard to find, so without thinking twice I put down a deposit for a set of 19"x10.5 et12 TE37SL's which should be here in a couple of months:clap: . Really think that these wheels will look even beter than Nismo's especially on this color! Now looking for tyre options to go with them .

LiamGTR 5th March 2014 01:53 PM

Definitely chose the better of the 2 wheels!
