My R32 GTR pics

Thought it was about time I posted some pics of my GTR. Had it now for around 6 months so you could say I've been a bit lazy in the pic department .
Anyway, here goes....






Not very arty-fart but gives you the jist of how it looks. As you can see, I've removed the 'Skyline anniversary' sticker off the boot lid to make it look a bit cleaner
As far as the exterior goes, I only intend to add a Nismo boot lip and that will be it as I love the look of an R32 with N1 body 'kit'.

No underbonnet shots yet i'm afraid as I thought id wait until I get my Tomei Fuel rail and braided hoses fitted which will tart things up a bit

TT

No mate, just a lucky glint from the sun on the light. Wish it has Xenons as the std ones are crap as all 32 owners will know.


Thanks for all the positive comments guys. I cant take credit for the wheels as I bought the car with them on. Mind you it WAS one of the reasons I DID buy it in the first place!

Unfortunately the missus has scraped the O/S/R wheel a fair bit which I'm none too happy about. I shall get it all repaired before this years events start in earnest.
Bloody women.

As an aside, will alloy wheel repairers be able to match the colour on my bronze Work Emotions??

I guess it'll depend how competent your refurber is, and what sort of equipement he has to "scan" the colour with

I thought they were anodised, rather than painted??

A really good paint shop should be able to match it.

Well, just had the new shiny fuel rail and braided hoses fitted along with the Nismo AFM's and I thought I'd share it with those who are interested:-




Looks much better....and more importantly goes a lot better with the new AFM's

Some of the paint is flaking off the plenum and cam cover but TBH I'm not really fussy about that. I may get a clear cam cover when I change the cams and pulleys at a later date if I can find a nice cheap 2nd hand one

As I say, I'm not too fussed about cosmetics TBH. However, I shall probably get a clear cover in due course. Hell, I may even get a new plenum so I'll bide my time so to speak. I have seen a lot of nice GTR engine bays and mine undoubtedly lets the side down but at the moment I'm more concerned about channeling funds to the areas that count.
Maybe some day i'll get round to it LOL........

A bit of an update...

Nice new alloy rad and silicone hoses



Bit of a fiddle with the shroud and had to hacksaw a bit off the top outlet pipe but all-in-all a good job. Only managed to replace 1 heater hose as the other 3 are looking like they're going to be a PITA. Maybe a job for when the plenum's off methinks!! Unfortunately you cant see the NISMO low temp 'stat I fitted...bummer...Never mind, the water cooling system is now where I wanted it to be spec-wise so I'm happy. Possibly add an ARC air remover at some point but I'm not overly desparate.

Another little update (sort of)...
Well not really much TBH but i've just gone and got myself some Midori HICAS cancel rods and adjustable front upper camber arms.




Now its not often I get all gooey about car parts but there are the dogs bollox IMHO. Quality is second to none. Glad I went for the Midori HICAS rods rather than the Cusco drag rods or some lockout bar.
Now all I have to do is fit them and get it all set up properly.....

Those HICAS cancel rods are very interesting, and as can be expected from Midori, look of excellent quality
