Hello and welcome. Sounds like an interesting project there. Plenty of project threads here that should be of use to you (particularly around removing the original sound proofing LOL). People will be keen to see what you do.

I started with a bare shell with cage already in, but had been sat outside for a year or so. It's a bit of a mix of parts as well, including the engine ...

Talking New Owner Courtesy of Dave @ The GTR Shop

Hi all, I picked up my 1st Skyline today - an R33 GTR V-Spec in White.

Having been on the lookout for a few months, Dave from The GTR Shop came through, and I'm glad he did. Although it took over 3 hours to get to him, he really made the trip worth while. I was quite weary of buying a 20 year old GTR due to the horror stories you hear about some traders, but having read the positive reviews about Dave and The GTR Shop on this forum, it gave me confidence. Top marks to Dave and his team, he was completely honest about the car and is a genuinely good guy. He even picked me up from the train station - talk about going the extra mile (bad pun I know!). If you're looking for a new GTR, call Dave. Even if you have to wait, even if you live 250 miles away - it's worth it.

Needless to say the drive back was fantastic and although it was mostly motorway miles, it was great to get to know my new beast!

I'm looking forward to getting acquainted with the search button on this forum as there's a few small bits I want to do.

New to the GTR scene

Hi All

I bought my first GTR at the end of last year, and am really enjoying it especially in the dry, as it sits at 800 BHP it's a handful in the dry never mind the wet.

Hi, I'm Charlie, I currently dont own a skyline as such, but have joined the forum in my quest to find the perfect one, which is more challenging than I thought!

Hi guys,

I'm just about to get a 93 series 3 r32 GTR. Took me a few months of trawling auctions to find the car as I wanted an unmolested, graded, 93+. For the MOT it just needed upper arm bushes and Hicas ball joints which I understand now are common failures. Attached is a pic of the car at the docks in Japan.

Future plans are to refresh the suspension and possibly fit wider wheels. Planning on keeping power standard but may replace the turbos for steel wheeled units for reliability.

Look forward to speaking to you all on the forums!

In the UK, the car was imported to Newcastle but I'm actually up in Scotland.

It also came with this in the boot. Extra jdm points?
