Midnight Mistress - R33 GTR

I bought my 1995 R33 Skyline in February 2017 and have yet to put together a build thread. After reading through many of the builds in the forums, I think it's about time...

The day I took delivery

Subscribed. Looks like a good basis for a project and is the exact colour Iíd choose if I ever went for an R33.

First mod (April '17) was to swap most of the lighting to LED. Taillights from Quest Japan; jikoshiki plates from... the Japanese DMV.

These are OEM replacements from Quest Japan w/ LED conversions.

They are lamps with clear lenses. They flash amber when used just like the originals. The stock yellow fender and lower front flashers always bothered me, so they were one of the first things to go. IMO it looks much better with the smoked side flashers and clear front ones.

Updates are:

I've been in and out of town for the past few months now. I've collected many parts and stuff for when I finally get around to doing the swap, but nothing major has happened just yet.

I have leave scheduled for the second week of July to get started on the car again. I'll update more when things pick back up.

I've taken 35 days off from work to try and tackle some of the many little projects (and two big ones). Updates to follow, but here are some of the parts going into this round of upgrades.

I did get around to replacing the older Kenwood deck with a Bluetooth capable unit. The wiring was shit, so that got replaced too.

There's been a bit of progress on my swap engine, but not as much as I'd like. My initial goal was to have the new engine in the car and running by now. Not having a garage of my own and using the car as my daily driver keeps the progress at a snails pace. But here are some updates.

I've gotten the surge tank, valve covers and throttle bodies powdercoated and reinstalled.

Swapped the ignition system over to R35 coils.

Refreshed the OEM oil cooler takeoff and installed a Greddy takeoff block for the custom remote mount setup I'm planning.

I'll get the pics up when I can get to a proper computer.
