  1. I realized i probably put this in the wrong section but i dont see a delete button for for this because i went ahead and made a thread in the Projects, Overhauls, and Build Ups section. If a Mod/Admin wants to delete this thread thats okay
  2. One of the last things i did with the car before being station in the middle of the ocean for 6months was go to Takata Circuit in Hiroshima Prefecture and while doing so i accidently crashed a shops reserved day but they were cool with it and let me continue on around the track. They had one of their members take photos and he was kind enough to snap a few of my car and send them to me which surprised me. I have ordered a few things while i have been in the middle of the ocean so the car is going get few upgrades/changes when i get back. I have also done a few interior changes but didnt think i would post those photos. Hope this isnt to much for a 1st thread haha.
  3. Soon after the small MFD fix i installed the HKS Hypermax GT IV 20specs at the hobby shop on base and soon after i took a nice evening shot in front of the house im living in during my stay in Japan. I also changed out the amber lights for the clear Nismo option and I believe it makes the car look better. Also got a quick photo with the Kentai Bridge in the background
  4. Car finally arrives from TopRank in Chiba Prefecture around October 2020 (Purchased the car around Aug/Sep2020) and overcome by happiness haha. One of the 1st things that I did was fix the MFD screen, there is a thread here on SAU that walks you through and it was a challenge specially getting the film to lay down correctly. Overall i was happy since it only costed like $20-30 and couple hours of my time but i still want to buy one from one of the guys that sells them for like $250 for a spare. You can see its not 100% perfect but it is better than it was before.
  5. Hello Everyone, Figured id introduce myself and make a thread of my car and progress while in ownership. I have always wanted to have a BNR34 but never thought it would my achievable due to living in the states and knowing prices would be sky high. I ended you moving to Japan due to work for a 5year term/tour and a year later after being in Japan I drove up to Chiba Prefecture from Yamaguchi Prefecture (14hr drive) to TopRank to look and decided to make the purchase. I am glad that i did because it felt like overnight the prices shot up to 100k+. Before delivery i had TopRank perform timing belt,water pump,and pulley job since it was due so that was a little bonus before getting the vehicle. I come from Subies when i was in the States so im used to everything you do to a car needs a tune haha. Im new to the platform of Skyline Gtrs but i have been learning along the way. The R34 GTR is pretty much stock besides a trust catback exhaust and some no name coilovers that were on the car ( these were very harsh ). It is also on the higher KM end (216,000 KM) but it overall in decent condition with minimal rust but some is expected being a 20yr car. Since ownership I have replaced a number of maintenance items and the coilovers to HKS Hypermax GT IV 20specs and right after the ride was a lot better.
