Just do the same to the rear fenders, and run a 25mm or larger spacer on them.

The fronts look good in those shots, better than some fronts I've seen.

 

Too bad I just sold my pair of big spacers about a month ago, but Yahoo-JP if full of them.

Process has been very slow on this but getting there.

 

Picked up a roof spoiler and a gtr intercooler..

Had a bit of trouble getting the fronts fitted, as the BC's are made to fit down over the standard strut and I had old JIC's in mine it wouldn't work. There are next to no 81's over here so finding a standard set was impossible. So I got the JIC's chopped at the bottom of the strut and then got a piece machined to fit from the JIC hub part up into the bottom of the BC, had the piece pressed in and then welded it around. They're fitted now and all seems to be good.

 

Also picked up a new seat.

Just a dropped the car off to get painted yesterday so should have some more updates soon.

May the JDM gods strike you with lightning!

Cutting up JICs to put lesser shit on.

You know, KONI makes race cartridges that fit into the JICs, right ?

Guess that is a NO.........

 

Wish I know where the front under chassis brace came from, I have to build one yet.

 

How much did the intercooler cost you ?

Or are GT-Rs common over there.

Yea I thought long and hard about it but there was no other solution that suited. I didn't know that about koni, but there's nothing stopping me rebuilding them with the koni's and standard hubs in the future, il have them as spares.

 

Under chassis brace? Where do you see that?

 

Yea there were a run of gtrs produced in the UK and a good few imported so they would come up now and again. It cost around $200

That's a photo of a jzx110 that used to belong to Phil of Driftworks. I was using this photo as an example of an exhaust system that Id like to have. I never claimed it was my car

Look dweeb, This is a forum of doers, wana-bees need to go somewhere else.

By pulling that stunt, and not clearly stating that this is what you are thinking of, or what you are going to do

is pure gayness.

 

Now we can't really trust anything you post.

Go back and read the post that I included the photos of the exhaust work in. You'll see that I was using it as an example.

Yeah Gordo, you can clearly see the 5 pictures of crazy exhaust, electronic cutouts, and dumptubes that he would like his fabricator to make one day..

At least you don't have a 110. X8 requires like 4 creative bends to make a perfect tucked exhaust route.

Just wait until your my age, and see how much you can see...........

In other words,

Never mind !

No Gordo, haven't a clue who that fine lady is.

 

Some progress on this at long last..

 

Had to cut two wings to make one good one.

The rest of the bits should be done by the end of this week. Also picked up a pair of te37's cheap that need a refurb so gonna get those done at the same time as the regas, keeping them white, I think it'll give he car a good lift.

it's OK, gordo. at least we don't call fenders "wings" over here.

 

paint looks good. the regas look so much better than TE37s though.
