Where'd you get the LED dash kit? Do they do an R34 one? Or did you just buy some bulbs

The kit can be had from RHDJapan.com and I'm sure they have a set for the R34, but I was able to source the exact same brand/make of bulbs from my local Autobacs here in Okinawa. It was cheaper cutting out the middle man.

I should clarify. I misspoke about the total price. My price included shipping as well as some other LED products like the two interior dome lights, side markers, front bumper indicators, and the sealing kit. So it was a fair price and I got a package deal.

If you want just the taillights it's about 70700. They offer different styles and those may cost more or less depending on if you're sending in the originals, use they're stock for trade, or go all new.

Go here (http://qestjapan.com/itempage/r33.htm) to price out the setup of your choice.

The downtime is due to rust repair and trim replacement.

Both strut towers showed signs of rust, so I had that cut out and replaced. Also, most of the trim around the front and rear windows were cracked and worn out. That was replaced.

While the car was down, I cleaned up my swap engine and installed all new water and vacuum hoses to the cold side of the engine. The valve covers were powder coated back to red (originals were chipped) and the plenum coated with a silver Cerakote

Refreshing the throttle bodies was fairly straightforward thanks to a Reimax throttle refresh kit.

And shout out to Supertec for their R35 ignition coil conversion kit. It fits super precise and looks good too. Tied it all together with a Wiring Specialties loom.

Little things matter to me, so I replaced most of the visible topside hardware with new nuts, and the cam covers got new gaskets and Mines baffles. Threw on some new belts and clear cam gear cover for good measure

To cap off the updates this time around...

My turbos finally arrived yesterday. This build will see two twin EFR 6758 top mounts.

I update my IG account faster/more often than I can here, so if you want to follow along ---> @killajoedotcom

Hey, was wondering about that reimax itb refresh kit. Does it come with everything for all 3 or do you have to order 3 kits.

Comes with everything you need for all three. Just FYI tho, you can get a set of new ITBs from TFA (https://tfaspeed.com/products/nissan...y-chamber-asse)
It wasn't available for me at the time, but I would have went that route.

Thanks, I had mine rebuilt but the plastic stuff was in bad shape.
