Have been a member here for quite a long time, almost 6 years to be exact, and my dream was always to own a GT-R 34 and I still remember my first few posts and private msgs asking everyone whether they could sell their skyline to me :)
Was pretty much sure that the day was close, yet, I was completely wrong. Due to some health issues as well as financial I was forced to give up on that dream. Well, 5 years later and whilst I could have never imagined to actually own a true legend (at least to my own eyes), that day finally came on 25th of December 2013, which was pretty much my best Christmas EVER :clap:
That was the day I got my Millenium Jade 2002 Skyline G-R 34 VSpecII Nur and met a good friend (previous owner) :thumbsup:

Thanks for your comments guys, I believe millennium jade is a "love or hate" color but I love it to bits. Toni mate I do have them but they're not in the best condition at the moment and I'm planning to change the wheels so I just kept them off the wheels, I also dare to say that I even like the looks of it ;)

I've had the car for 1.5 month, not many changes done on the car so far since I am not going to work at the moment due to recovering from my hip surgery. Got these today in the mail though :clap: I believe new badges all around can change the looks of a car !




One of the first mods I do on pretty much every car I owned so far, is to remove the rear wiper, I just don't like the looks of it



Now on the downside, I found some minor paint bubbles on my strut tops, but I was lucky enough to find a Japan imported VSpecII shell locally and I bought the rust-free ones from it, just to be on the safe side because I know it's pretty hard to find a pair. Still can't believe the huge mistake Nissan did on the r33 and the r34 in regards to the strut towers. Most probably I will change them at a later stage.



Was also given this little thingie with the car, as well as a genuine Nismo overfender set which I haven't put on the car yet




Some of 2014 goals include:

19" x 10.5 wheels preferably Nismo LMGT4's IF I can find myself a set, which seems rather impossible, otherwise will go for TE37's

Nismo Side skirts
Nismo rear spats


And one pic of O'Connor as it sits at the moment :)

Remember first time I seen a millennium jade in the flesh was at JAE in 2004 absolutely class!

I never saw one up close, till the day I got it. Gotta say that the color is much nicer in the flesh. Photos don't do it justice, really!

Very nice, what has the old owner replaced it with, anything equally epic?
He has a lovely daughter now in his life and that gives him a lot of satisfaction to say the least, therefore an epic car is postponed for him now, but I have no doubt he'll make a good comeback at some point!

Had some free time today and I thought it was a perfect time to remove my undertray for a refresh.



There was so much dirt and mud under that, so I decided to remove everything in order to clean them up as much as possible.




Time for a really good clean up for the i/c as well, looks so faded and foggy will try and do it tomorrow.
What are your thoughts about removing the front lower grill of the bumper? I saw quite many r34's without it and they look even more aggressive.

Since most of the front was removed i thought it would be nice to bring the headlights/indicators/reverse lights as well as fog light, back to their former glory. I'm not very good at this so I will be taking them to a friend of mine who has a car paint shop and does this type of tasks as well.

So O'Connor now looks like this :bawling:



Will try to clean all things removed tomorrow, in order to have everything shining by the time my lights come back fm the shop. Will be also changing all rusty screws to st. steel ones whilst I'm at it.
