Nice pics ^^

I think the design of te37 was thought for a r32, definitely the best looking rims for that skyline. :) Beautiful colour tho´.

BTW I love the job done with the cluster and carbon bits in the interior.

Cheers.

Cheers guys for the replies, glad you like it :D
Allways amazed by the number of folk that like the color, i always thought it was a bit of an aquired taste!

really like those interior carbon bits
BTW I love the job done with the cluster and carbon bits in the interior.
Ta guys!, they were a pain to get made right, especially the little arrows for the indicators that i spend ages cutting out by hand!

Definately think they were worth doing in the end, and its weird when i look at old pics of my interior now. :D


what is the thing in your tail pipe?? Is this a silencer???
Yup, that's an apex'i ATS, my car is on the border of obscenly loud,
and after i lost the original Kakimoto baffle on a spirit run in the country (probably ended up embedded in a sheep lol), i thought i'd get something that'd keep the car quiet enough for town driving... but still open up and be loud enough when i'm having some fun :D

still... there's a couple of people that think i'm a pussy, and should embrace the raw RB sound 24/7 :p

And what's that Apexi unit behind the steering wheel???
that's a Multichecker thing, i stuck that in the car originally so i had a digital rev counter / rev alarm.... it's in the glove box now since i don't use it anymore, now that the LCD Consult display has rev warnings :D

also learned never to believe the "power figures" it gave ;0



Not a bad top speed for a '91



Prefer the wheels in the earlier photos.
Those Advan RS's are a bit marmite for me, some days i think they look ace, and others i feel they look to modern for the car.

The shape of them is really nice though...





How they look on the street, i feel they get a bit lost in in the dark color of the bodywork.. but i'd definately pull them out the garage and put them to use if i had a white car... or a white RX-7





Like the Engine bling :smokin:
The bling had to be done, it adds at least 300 internet HP

LOL

pics of the car in the snow are well cool
:D so was the trip to the carpark where i took them......



the settled snow wasnt so pristine when i left :D

Stupid question is that a standard colour? never seen it before
Yup its a standard color, I think it was only offered for the first few years of the R32 GT-R. I did read somewhere it was special order though (dunno how much truth is in that though...)

Hi Endo :wavey:

Long time no see.

Looks like you've been busy recently, looking very nice indeed :thumbsup:
Hey Ian,
how goes it? :D

Did you sneak out with the beast to the car park, at least one day during the snow?

for some reason, i got "lost" one day on the way into work and somehow ended up in the car park near yours...., spinning round and round in circles until i worked out how to get out....

much to the amusement of some of the guys at the truck stop.

;) yeah i've been busy, i'ts getting there though, slowly.
Hopefully you'll be able to check it out for yourself sometime soon

Your car looks fantastic Endo...really nice to see what TH1 looks like when its in good condition ! :thumbsup:

I have a TH1 R32 too but it desperately needs a re-paint as its been very neglected by its previous owners unfortunately. Have thought about painting it in another colour but the blue pearl seems to be a pretty rare colour so if I do get around to re-painting it it'll stay the same colour. They used TH1 on a few very early '89 to '91 RS13 200SX's too but very rare to see one.
