So I've had my R35 nearly 4 weeks now!

Getting it to this: (so far!)



Little video from the dyno off my facebook from a couple days ago:

Been a busy boy, I think anyway. Learning about the cars and researching/ buying parts.

I wanted a full service for peace of mind, it wasn't due but a friend owns a garage and I like helping so why not!


My progress thread since taking ownership:


On the way to collect her, picked this up as didn't know what the 300mile return leg would be like


Exciting


Filled up for drive back, looking good, what does everyone complain abaout ;)


Straight in for some attention








Miltek unresog y-pipe fitted


rear light kit


After a good clean






Let the modding begin:







vs standard 501 led bulbs in oem rear units


= :)


Crack on with the work another night


spacers fitted on standard springs: (and new rubber fitted!)



Gearbox opening up and piston clips fitted
(GTR/GR6 Valve Body TSB Clips ? Jacks Transmissions LLC)









Injectors:


Pollen filter is fun


Once gtc intakes fitted with injectors and downpipes time for map with ecutek cable


What a pig the downpipes were btw!!







Getting to rear shocks !




All done can now run some more boost :squintdan


Tints done


Alignment




Pulled in to the rolling road day and a friend of mine happened to have Martin down for mapping on some Skylines


Mine on:



Another coat of wax (putting her to work)





Car is only running a base stage 4 map atm, bit smokey, see video here from a couple days ago:

Hopefully that'll decrease when Ben @ GTC has done me a custom map? Its ID's fitted.


Result so far.... :D










Waiting for some carbon fibre goodies to arrive atm to smarten up the front end
Going to get some front brake pads too, if anyone can recommend any?


Look forward to being an active member on the forum :)blahblah:)

Cheers!

Wax? for scratches? No?
I use AG super resin polish first for any scratches, wax is to go on after to protect the paint, just a cover


Where did you get the plates done btw
Number Plates | Buy Number Plates Online | Number Plates from £11.80

The car looks great. Couple of observations on your pics and vid. Love the maestro in the video clip at the rolling road. What HP did that run?

Have the ask about the R33 skyline in the pic outside the rolling road, the one with the massive spoiler. What were they thinking?
