  1. Awesome. Did not know about this. Looked up both models and they are the same Cheers!
  2. If anyone has FAST, can you please check the part numbers for the steering column assembly between the GTR and GTST? Would really appreciate it
  3. True. I had heard of that before but not tried it. Does the Liquid nitrogen just evaporate shortly after? how do you deal with putting it on vertical areas etc?
  4. Yeah definitely. I've never restored a car before and never tackled sound deadening before either. I'm only 25 so learning a lot as well. Just be careful not to hit it too hard and dint the floor
  5. I picked up 5L of isopropyl from a cleaning supplier for $20. You mix a decent amount of the ice, crushed into almost a powder, with a few dashes of the alchohol until it becomes like a slurry. Pour that on the sound deadening and leave it for a few minutes until you hear the cracks / pops stop. Then scoop the ice onto another part of the deadening and smash the previous bit with a rubber mallet from underneath if you can. Then using a scraper you can flake off really large pieces. Rinse and repeat.
  6. That is the plan at this stage..although I do know how heavy it is so not sure to what extent yet. I'm hoping to make the car fairly quiet to give it a more modern feel. Hopefully the underliner helps in doing that as well. here is a photo of all my shed ornaments as of tonight....
  7. At this stage I have purchased both a complete rear and front subframe for $2750 which will get the car back to a rolling state. Yet to pick these up. But they will be stripped and completely revamped with new paint, bushes, etc before going in. The next thing i'm waiting on is a car rotisserie so I can mount the shell, move it around and prep the underbody for a liner (like raptor etc). If anyone has done this as well, advice and recommendations would be appreciated. I have lined up one to be picked up in about a month for free...so that should be good.
  8. I also started stripping the sound deadening out of the gtr with dry ice and isopropyl alchohol. Tried the freeze cans but wasn't as effective as I thought it would be. Once the car is stripped entirely of sound deadening material, the inside will be cleaned out and made as clean as possible. Still unsure whether I will be painting the interior yet. If anyone has done this before and has thoughts please be sure to let me know.. The body paint will be stripped, any necessary body work done and put in primer as I accumulate parts to put it back together.
  9. Within the first week, I bought a crashed gtst shell to steal as much as I could in the way of generic interior, rubbers, seals, rear bar and reo, rear window, quarter glass etc. It also came with a genuine 32 GTR steering wheel for only $400...what a steal.
  10. First day the car arrived... Thinking about what a mistake I had made hahaha. At this stage I have the following genuine gtr parts for the car: bonnet drivers guard boot and wing n1 headlights grille I am also slowly gathering new rubbers and seals etc from places like Kudos etc.
  11. Alrighty guys, So i've had a number of skylines over the last 5 years, since getting my first one in 2014. A number of R33 drift cars, a R32 drift car in japan @ ebisu circuit (for sale atm if anyone is keen :D), my original green 32 which I've built up over the last 5 years to a 500hp rb25 neo street weapon (this is also for sale...) With the rising prices of GTR's these last few years..I thought I would never be able to afford a proper GTR without selling everything I own haha. I recently came across someone with a bare non rolling R32 GTR shell which luckily had not been posted for sale online. Luckily over the years, I have amassed quite a number of GTR body parts. The plan is to pretty well fully rebuild the car with as much new items as possible (while not going crazy over the top). This will take me a long time, but I hope to keep these page updated (unlike my first build post haha).
  12. I'm just asking for opinions man, people here have a TONNE of experience. There's only one way to learn right?
  13. Hey guys, Picked up a s1 25 with a blown head gasket really cheap a few weeks back. i'm gonna pull it apart and send it off to a engine shop to get the head and block checked for cracks etc hoping it was just a blown gasket. What else should I do while the motor is out and apart? Water pump timing belt (should I do the cam seals? I have some brand new ones here) VRS gasket kit ARP head studs (I have some brand new Nason ones here, are they any decent or don't use them?) thicker head gasket (metal?) piston rings it's gonna go into my 32 and at some stage im hoping for 300-350hp and maybe up to 450hp in a few years time. What should I do now to future proof myself? I would like to stick to a budget of around $2000 but I can stretch if its worth it. What is everyone's opinions? Sorry if the post seems a bit stupid, i'm new to building engines. Cheers
  14. Thanks. I don't actually have a turbo timer, but it's possible there was one in it years ago. This still should not stop all power besides those few lights in the video?
