Any updates, Domokun? :)
Hi there, long time – no update...
There's really nothing to update about. I've been busy with other things in life. Now that's my bad excuse for the lack of updates. :blahblah:

I still got her. Here's a proof!


Just visited her the other night. Took her outside the garage. Let her idle for 10 minutes and drove back in... It's winter here, snow, ice, dark, cold.

These beast take a quite a lot of time/money – both that I don't really have. I really want to drive her next summer as I didn't really drive last year (2012) at all.
She just sat there collecting dust :bawling: Took her out the garage every once in a while to stretch her legs. Spin around the block and drove back in.
She needs few maintenance things done, like replacing the front drive shaft rubber boots. That's it really. I haven't lost all the tuning bits mentioned on the previous post. Just hadn't have the time or motivation to do anything to them.

I hope I'll update this thread next time with better write up and actual content. Let's hope 2013 will bring her back in to my daily life. :thumbsup:

Headlight Conversion

Hi, I Have a very specific question for You, and I would be extremly grateful for your answer or any help... :bawling:

I have a major problem. I'm living in Poland, and we have here LHD traffic. And as same as You, I Have Halogen headlights in my R34 GTT but I can't find any LHD internalsr fitting for my headlights...

I saw Your post here, where You rebuild Yours, but there's no clue what part or from what headlight You use that internal LHD reflector that looks almost the same like OEM R34

Could You tell me where to filnd that internal reflector? or what Could I use for Conversion? :shy:

Not really into answering before thread starter Domo-kun, but I´m pretty sure the reflectors are not for LHD ;) atm. there doesn´t really exist a reflector which has the right beam pattern. Most conversions are done via a lense of Hella. I have a pair here with me (it was done from Xenons of a GT-R version), I can show pics if you like via e-mail (not for sale, just to show you what I mean).

Hi all,
Sorry for the lack of responses... I get these private messages asking about this conversion like once a month.

So. Before I did my R34 LHD headlight conversion I literally walked 6 months to work through my city center and watched car headlights. What could possibly fit into the R34 housing without killing the OEM look. (YES, SIX MONTHS OF RESEARCH).
I had the same thing as most of you who need the headlights to converted to LHD to pass the MOT and of course not to blind the other cars. I tried to search the web, asked for help and always had the same reply – "sorry buddy. I can do it for you, for this €$£€ money", or "seek a pro shop to do it". The most what I found were "beam retrofits" or totally different shape of internals, even the housing. I didn't like the look. So I was on the mission to do it my self.

So, now that I have done the conversion everybody just keeps telling me, to give the secret recipe... And I'm supposed to give it a way for free... nope. :smokin:

Hope you guys understand that some of the hard work pays of in the end. You'll just have to do the research. :popcorn:

Here's the sleeping beauty. Pics snapped yesterday (5th Feb 2017).

Nice work. That r34 style front looks really good.
