  1. Hi Folks, New guy here to this site. I'm an american (sorry in advance) living in Tokyo for a few years. While I am here I thought I'd live my dream and get my teenage dream car, a R34 GTR. Because USA has crappy import laws for japanese cars, especially California where I'm from, I don't know if I'll ever be able to take it home with me. That said, i'd like to enjoy the car now while I can. I picked up an original r34 GTR v-spec in December. I installed JRZ's, standard issue Volks, and an HKS exhaust. That's it for now and may remain that way for a while as I get used to the car. I've got some issues with the car which is why I'm joining here so I can post some questions along the way. Hopefully one day I can have a GTR in the US. You guys are so lucky. Hope you all have a great Friday and weekend. Cheers, Kanpai!

  4. Hello and thank you for the wealth of info I have already read from your forum. My name is Craig I was looking for a cheap performance car and came across the Stagea. Over here in the UK it's a very rare sight. I have never seen another one! So it's a 1996 RS Four with a factory Dayz kit and 2 sunroofs too! Really low miles at 47,000 and a few spare parts in the boot too. The interior is immaculate engine is completely stock too but the body has really faded paint and light surface rust under the mirrors so I will be respraying the whole car and treating any rust before hand. Well that's my hello no doubt I will start a little build thread soon too ?️

  7. Wow that's a low mileage - how about some pics? The rust under the mirrors is a standard feature I'm afraid. When you pull off the door linings you need to take out the moisture retaining material in that corner of the door.

  8. Artifical lighting and flash always make it look 10x worse. Car looks fully legit to me. Even down to the fact your intake snorkel foam surround is already perishing 0_0 Nissan got it wrong on that material lol I struggle with this car because I would want to drive it all the time to enjoy its freshness, but not ever drive it to preserve its freshness... So I would do as you have done and have two

  9. It would be great if people would read the threads on topics covered 1000 times before. It's also be great if people who thoughts things might have changed would ask questions about the products that were good 5 years ago, such as "I saw people liked X, y, z, are these still good, I can see they're still current, OR they've been replaced it appears by T, H, y, has anyone used those ones, are they just as good/better?

  11. Hey all. Some time ago, i said i would take some photos of the interior and engine bay... Obviously you should have learned by now that when I say i'll do something, i mean in a few months. In any case here are some interior shots of the stock GTR for your viewing pleasure. BTW, the car is slightly dusty, and has some leaves and dirt in it, the photos make it look very bad, but it's not as severe as it looks. I took a lot of images of the stickers on the car, as I suspect there wouldn't be too many left with these stickers intact. I also grabbed images of the usually suspects for wear and tear in an attempt to convince those who aren't (there's a few out there - mostly facebook experts) that the car has been rolled back or had a changeover cluster and other parts. I'm convinced that isn't the case, unless someone has changed every single component on the car, in which case, it's an amazing rebuild (which it isn't) and would be worth the cash monies I paid anyways. Ok i'm losing track of my point... See the images below.

  12. Hello and welcome to another new Tutorial! This can only be done in the Jap Spec S15's, ADM ones may share bulbs, and process to remove is similar, so you can follow along too with discretion. For this tutorial, all you will need it a few Phillips head Screw Drivers and the appropriate LED's. The LED's used include T4.2 LED's, but there are 2 different sizes for the Jap Climate Control buttons and Display Panel. (Currently, am unable to confirm the size of the Display Pannel LED's, So please let me know if you know what size they are so i can update here) As i was not sure of the size for the smaller LED's, i simply used the old LED holder which was inside the unit, and removed the old bulb, and inserted the new one, and made it a bit smaller by filing and sanding it down (Do this at your own discretion. I am not responsible for any damage caused to any of your equipment if you do this wrong) Once everything is ready, we can start with the tutorial! You will need to remove the unit from the center console. To do this, start by removing the shift knob, followed by the Shift Boot. Underneath you will find some screws towards the top part, undo these and gently begin prying at the sides of the center console, and with a bit of effort it should come out. Now you should see the screws holding the console in place, there will be 4 screws similar to those that were under the shift boot. Undo these, and the unit should slide out. Remove the clips from the back making sure not to rip the cables out of the clips. Now the unit should be free. Take your unit to a work bench for the next step! You will be able to see 4 screws (for the jap spec one, ADM may be different) behind the face of the unit, there are another 2 screwed into the green PCB board, do not remove those 2. Remove the 4 screws behind the face plate. Then you will see clips holding the 2 pieces together, there should be 3 clips on one side and 2 on the other. Gently release the clips with a tool of some sort, and the 2 pieces should come apart. DO NOT PULL TOO HARD AS THERE IS A CABLE HOLDING IT TOGETHER You should now be able to see 3 white colored LED holders and 2 black ones. From here simply swap them over. (in my case, as stated above, i had to modify the black ones because i do not know the size, so please let me know if you know. Thanks!) Polarity does matter, so from here you will need to put the unit back together, and test, if some of them light up and some don't, simply pull the unit apart again, and change the orientation of the ones which do not work, by reversing the polarity, they should now light up! Install the unit back in, and admire your work!

  14. I haven't been on the forum much in a long time - but look what turned up in the post today... courtesy Geoff Raicer (thanks again mate). Just came by to see what the latest results were.. I'll be doing a direct one to one comparison of this vs my current 8374 when the time comes.
