The snow is gone and weather is back to normal!














My custom gauge install

New BF Goodrich KDW 255/35/18

New long block from Nissan, TD-05-16 G turbo's and a bunch of other stuff.



And I mounted a large gun on the hood for the people who cut me off!lol.


2005 TSX headlights


GTR and tsx projector side by side


GTR mounting brackets cut off and to be glued to tsx projecors


back of GTR headlight trimmed so hid ballast can connect


wire harness so I can have high beams on at the same time


Close up of diode



Complete!







7ft from wall,head on.


Low beam

High beam and low beam at the same time

I want to thank Ronin9 from carracingg.com for the idea!

Great looking car! The photo's with the ocean in the background and your Straight Jap style 3 spoke Advans look as if they could have been taken in Japan!

Do you have the BFG's on yet? How do you like them?

Excellent looking R32!!!:squintdan

That looks very nice. :smokin:

Good work with the gauges too, they look much nicer when someone's taken the time to integrate them properly IMO. Top idea using another stock gauge plate to mount the GReddy gauges, like it. :thumbsup:

Ya...:chuckle: The car is begging for coil overs.The BF goodrich KDW are very good tires in the dry and rain.Tramling is non existant now,I would say reduced down to %2 from really shitty with my old Jap Dunlops.There is almost no noise from the tires,I heard mixed reviews saying the tires were noisy considering the blocky tread.You can really "feel" the road in the rain and I would highly reccomend these tires to anyone.Next on my agenda is to fabricate a couple intake pipes and route them into the bumper so the engine is not sucking in hot air all the time.

It was very easy to do the gauge install and heater control relocation.


-remove the trim around the heater control and stereo
-remove heater control
-cut out the plastic that holds in the ash tray
-hold up the face of the heater control where the ash tray was and see how much needs to come off the front (you can always take more off,but you can't put it back on..lol)
-you also need to trim the the backside of the ash tray so the heater control can fit through the backside of the ash tray
-the stock wiring for the heater control will stretch far enough down so there is no need to cut wires.
-to sum up the fitting in general .....Take your time and just look at what is in the way and trim away!

-to hold the 3 gauges in place all I did was buy a $5 plastic garbage can and cut out a rectangle the same size off the boost,oil temp and voltage plastic front plate.
-cut 3 52mm holes for the gauges
-I spliced into the wires of the stock gauges for power,ignition etc.
-replace 2nd stock plate over the gauges
-bob's your uncle!





Night shot.Unfortunately the oil pressure is green and doesn't match.My sensor just died after a month so I think I will just buy another gauge.
I would like to open the gauges and remove the plastic colour behind the dial so they are clear but I'm undecided.I can't firgure out how to open the gages....:confused:
