Been a member on here for a couple months but haven't posted much. I'm from London.
Currently have an 200sx s14a but expecting a new car next week.

It's an R34 GTR, a fresh import from japan. From what i know it's quite a rare(ish) colour.
It's got front end damage so will need a bit of work. Don't know that much about the engine and tuning them but in time I'll learn more about them. Can't wait to get it and get started on it!

Can't upload pics just yet as I need more posts!

Yeah thanks I commented on it a bit earlier today to see how progress is coming along as they haven't updated the thread in a few months


Also spoke to my local nissan place and they said they can't get the LX0 paint. Anyone know where I can get it from or just try a different nissan dealer?

Paint

Hi mate
Interesting project you there, any good paint supplier should be able to mix and supply most automotive colours. Nissan can unfortunately be very unhelpful at times. You should be able to get the slam panel from the dealers and try the breakers on here I wouldn't be surprised if the GTT panel is the same.
Best of luck and let's see some pics!

Thanks, I'm getting it on Monday hopefully so I'll see exactly what I'll need. I've managed to get a genuine bonnet and bumper already for cheap. I've sourced some fresh looking xenon headlights. Hopefully the slam panel will be able to be straightened as it doesn't look too bad from the pics. I've heard that the paint can't be mixed by any body shop as it's got some sort of additive to give it the pearly effect! I'll get some pics up soon! :D

Look an easy fix, but remember reading that the paint is ridiculously expensive, something like £3K to get enough to paint a whole car!!

Try a few bodyshops to see if they can get it made up for you

Good luck.

Some info I found on the net:-

"For the R34, there were two.

One is a purple with a bluish tinge that you can see at certain angles with the sun.

Appreciate that, I've managed to get a picture of the chassis plate and the code is definitely LX0

Tried my local nissan but they said they don't have it. Think the guy on the phone was just a bit lazy and couldn't be bothered to try and find it. I'll try another dealer and maybe a couple of body shops if unsuccessful
