Very cool! Nice to see a 324R being built with such attention to detail!
What are you planning for the steering wheel?

A KEY!S suede wheel with quick release boss would look very cool, perhaps.
Bride floor mats to match might look good, Black R34 GT-R mats are also classy, but hard to find..

Awsome, very nice idea to do a vertical stitch in alcantara in the door panel. Also the center console down to gear knob stitch looks quality.

You truly inspired me with this project, and shows what you can do with a nearly 20years old interior.

Great stuff, keep it coming:bowdown1:

Thanks guys for the nice support & kind comments! :bowdown1:

Miguel. Yep! Been drooling over some sweet steering wheels lately. Friend of mine has a Nardi classic (brand new) suede with red stitching. That looks good would match the interior perfectly.
The KEY!S looks sweet as well. But actually I'm thinking of keeping the original wheel as it's in pretty good condition.

And those HKS Kansai mats are only seen my feet about 10 times, so no need for new mats either. But thanks any ways. There’s still some other bits that I might need, so stay in touch ;)

Update! Interior update part 4

Interior update part 4.

Okay. So went to Autoextra to help the boys out a bit. The program was to hook up all the little gadgets in the console.
First feeding all the electric wires through the firewall to the engine bay, then connect some “funny lines” for the bottle etc.


It’s a tight route to squeeze everything through.


On they’re way to the engine bay…


Boot looking already more compete. Still missing all trim panels.


Tricky “hatch” almost like the one in TV series LOST :smokin: :smokin: :smokin:


In the Hatch: Alpine PXA-H701 digital signal processor, some relays and MDS 2.0 Farad digital capacitor to get the most out of the amps & Sub.
The bandbass box was fine tuned as well. It really creates A LOT of deep bass. And were only using one MDS 10” Dynamic DS250RS subwoofer. Sounds more like using a pair of 12”…


The boot install only brings about 20 kg. So it’s ultra light, but still effective.



You’re probably thinking – “What hell is that amp doing there” :D
Well it was the only place to put it. The other amp is behind the rear seat and shows through the sub box when you look in the boot.
This way we managed to modernize the dull & flat window board.


These are for the top of the window board. Still missing the reflex tube trumpets, some fine cow & tricky stitching. Trust me its gonna look sick.


Apexi meters found their place. Still missing the Boost meter.
The LED shift light is on it’s way to top of the DECS unit. Also Harness for Fuel pressure & water temp.

That’s for it this time, enjoy!

Update! Interior update part 5

Interior update part 5.

Sorry I haven't updated til now. I've been busy as a bee... well, Bee*R :smokin:
Here we go with mega update!


The boot frame ready for some fine Bride & leather...


The theme from the back seat continues to the boot.



Gauges set, now ready for take off :smokin:



The window board is now at the same hight as the top of the rear seat. So you can clearly see out of the rear window.


The reflex tubes & amp have the same design as rest of the interior. We painted a red stripes top of the amp like the stitching.



Still you can fit a couple cases of beer or 30 bottles of NOS Octane Booster... :chuckle:

Update! Exterior... graphics & decals

Ok, this is not every ones cup of tea...

But to keep my sponsors happy as promised, It was vinyl time!

I've done couple sets of these in my life time, but now it was for my own car, so I got to get them right for the first time. (this is just my hobby).
The theme was a mix of HKS S15 Silvia drifter graphics & Bee*R B324R drifter graphics. I really liked the HKS "Turbee", so with a twist it was modified to fit the "Bee*R's tire sponsor logo" style. Autoextra was one of the major sponsors, here we go!

I drew these for couple of weeks by night, as I got a busy day job. I'm happy how they turned out. My sponsors got what I promised as well.



I used FreeHand MX (10) & Illustrator CS3 for the vector drawing. Then send the files to my friend Cassu. We used hes vinyl cutter.



Here is how it started. The 14 hours of stycky time. I got Juhiss, Sami, Maria & Cassu helping me out, cheers!


Tricky vinyl, Ritrama 540-series. From my sponsor Sesoma. It's like metal paint, really small flakes.




Cassu finshing the side sills.


Me finishing the last decals of the left side.





Done! 14 h later... it's 03:30 in the morning... three hour sleep and the back to day job, ouch! :smokin:

Update! Exterior... it's time to fly!

This is the second "Some like it - Some hate it" update.

The boot lid seemd a bit empty or that something was missing.

A normal GT-R wing was just too narrow for this wide body. So I came around and got a second hand used wing that came from other Jap import. We think the wing is a URAS Monkey Magic wing. It's 167 cm wide and quite light. It had a tall wing stays but I didn't dig like them. Instead of fitting them I desided to draw a new set, to mount the wing down to the boot like Bee*R has on their drifters.


I also got the wing paintrd by my friend Late at CustomCoating's.


I drew the vectors for the new stays by Illustrator CS3. I also wanted to ad some lightening detail to them, so I found a Skyline R32 text-logo and added that to the drawing. Why that text? Well its easy to cut by FlowJet water cutting as the letters don't have a "inside parts" in them, get it!?! (Like B or R would have). Ok, let's move on...


I painted the 8 mm thick billet aluminium stays matt black. They where water cutted by company called Laserle.


We marked & measured the right spots for the stays before drilling.



And before mounting we painted the holes to prevent rust.




Pretty nice in all it's horror & glory :smokin:

Now the Bee is ready to fly!!!

Update! Tuning Car Show

This is one of the biggest car shows in Finland (yes, were a small country up north middle of nowhere).

It's also the first show of the season. It's called American Car Show / Tuning Car Show. Lasts for four days during Easter.

My car was on display at my sponsors booth. Autoextra, Verhoilu Helsinki & Premier Cars (Brabus etc...).





It was nice surprise to get noticed here. Got two trophies to carry home. The Top 10 of the Show and GTi Magazine's Styling Challenge, third place. :bowdown1: Thanks goes to all my friends & sponsors who hellped me out.

Before puting my ride back to the garage for quick spring nap (there is still snow on the ground, no winter driwing). I managed to thake couple of pics of my pet fly... :smokin:








Yeah, I got Tein Type Flex... not my sponsor really so I modded the logo a bit :chuckle:


Henri's & Casper's graphics... If you want some graphics - you know us :smokin:



JDM EGO goes international, hah! Thanks Jay!




Enjoy!

Cheers, Domo-kun
