I went down by the bay and took some quick shots of my car, I treated the rear seats, door insets and rear quarter inserts with black leather to match the leather Sparco’s. I also fab'd a small wing on the top of the rear wind screen. Lastly I sanded and painted the center console in titanium to freshen it up a bit. I’m currently working on the sound system, its not much but I installed Memphis Audio 6.5” front and rear components with a Memphis Audio 500 watt X5 channels, which powers a dual voice coil Alpine Type R woofer.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks

I started with a wing from a 740il, the little lip spoiler you see running around… AND from there I shaped it, cut it, sand it… heated shaped it sanded…. And well 4-5 hours later I double sided tapped it on…I am going to urethane it on in the future. I will post more pics shortly.

Umm yes, I put about 1000 kilometers on it, I’m still breaking it in, we put a 4700rpm rev limit and an 8psi boost limit on it…. which keeps me in check…. I can’t wait to tune it up to 20psi and 8-9k rpm…

I’m working on the under hood pics, I’m not ready to show it yet… they’ll go up as soon as I’m ready….

Looks really nice mate, the leather retrim looks superb, how much that set you back? :thumbsup: Kevin.
Um enough, but its worth it for the look I’m going after….it seems to be coming together smoothly, I’m glad you guys approve.

wow, that's one hell of a good looking R33 there. Not sure about the steering wheel, myself, but the rest of the interior looks awesome.

What wheels are you running on, BTW??

Steve
Really…?? What steering wheel would you run?

They are Gravity Gull Wings 2’s in 18x10” with a 20-offset (wish I went 22), and I’m running BF Goodrich KFS’s in 255 40 18


Whole car looks great apart from bonnet (hood) scoop..

Bin that and its a winner :)
The hood scoop went on for a few reasons:
- Functional - I’ll be racing it in the summer so scavenge heat away from the radiator
- Visual – I needed to tie in some standard carbon fiber, because there is nothing and I mean nothing available in carbon Kevlar as far as accessories. It also breaks up the blatant yellow of the Kevlar to help tie in more color.
- I like hood scoops! :thumbsup:

Yea.... well... I went crazy getting my car together for one day...(and I did) for all intensive purposes... after about 20 emails with the speculation of near 13 of them showing only 2 others showed, but we met some great guys and look forward to getting together in the spring. In the interim I'm polishing up mine to get it ready and exploring new ways to make mine stand out from the rest.

I took some more shots today, I also added a new rear view mirror, I felt it adds a more “modern” flare to the interior, which is the look I'm going for. The mirror has a compass, outside temp and LED map lights which light up a hazy green color, it looks great at night. I also took a few detail shots of the interior including the headliner and arm rest as well as the matching baby seat. Lastly I included some detail shots of my rear wind-shield wing.

Enjoy
Ross



















Ohh bonus, this is the 34GTR we are working on, this is a very cool project and we look forward to completing it in the new year....:squintdan

Hi Ross

Merry Christmas! The car is looking superb. The leather interior additions make such a difference. I will buck the trend here, I think the carbon/kevlar bonnet looks great. In my eyes GTR's suit a more track orientated look, but that is only my opinion :) (The wheels always look so aggressive too, anyone know of a similar wheel available outside of the US).

The sparco kiddies seat's really cool and I can't wait to see the finished engine work. Keep us posted on any developments.
