  1. Just wanted to share with everyone some concrete information regarding replacing boot struts on R33 skyline, specifically the GTR but I am sure the information will be transferable. The reason I am posting is that there wasn't much information regarding pressures & the ability to remove the strut from the bracket (requiring drilling). What I did ended up costing me $110. Below is a picture I pulled from another thread, this is the part of the strut that is hard to remove. Very hard, but not impossible. What we did was use my 10mm spanner and wedge it in between the ball and the strut, then slowly work the it off. It looks like it's going to snap the strut and it ends up destroying it, but that's ok because new ones are cheap. This is what mine looked like in the end. We ended up putting 100nm of pressure in each cyl. It holds the boot fine with a genuine GTR spoiler. If I had to do it again, I would put 150nm in each to see if it holds any better, BUT that 100 works just fine. Any questions please shoot them through.
  2. https://www.rhdjapan.com/do-luck-carbon-aero-duck-tail-trunk-bnr34.html Hey guys, so I have done some real big time searching for his but no concrete yes, no. So don't hose me for "not using the search function". So is the r34 gtr (BNR34) boot lid compatible with the gtt chassis er34 I want to buy this trunk/lid for my er34 gtt 1998 as its the only non tacky looking duck-tail sorta look out there that i can find. If anyone knows if you can bolt a gtr lid on to a gtt chassis please let me know.
  3. Wanted Mint condition R34 Coupe Trunk Lid Liner Msg me, thanks.
  4. Hey guys, Anyone around the Sydney/Wollongong area selling an R34 GTT coupe bootlid in white? Doesn't need to have a spoiler as I have one already but needs to be in good condition (no dings, scratches, rust etc). Cheers!
  5. hey guys, need some help. was helping a random guy out to save him a long walk with his suitcase, when he put his suitcase in the boot he slammed it shut as hard as possible. now the boot it stuck and I believe the valet switch has moved down. now the shit part, the previous owner of the car removed the key from the rear of the boot so you can only open it with the lever. it still has the rotating Nissan badge, but you can just see straight into the boot from the hole. so key is not an option. I have taken out the back seat, taken the access panel off, but can't get to the switch because the guys suitcase is in the way, and the smart fellow put it on its side instead of flat so I can't go over the top of it to find the valet switch. I don't know exactly where the valet switch is in the boot, so if someone could take pictures. ones that are not direct close ups so I can try get at it with something long, just need a better idea of where the latch is. other pictures I've found are all close ups. sorry for disorganised post, written on my phone in a foul mood and in a hurry
  6. Hi all, Thought I'd share my solution to holding the boot lid of my R33 GT-R up so it doesn't try and kill me. A little background: when I bought my car the gas struts were pretty dead. They'd hold the boot lid up but didn't really provide any assistance lifting it and a gust of wind or slight slope would send it falling down. The factory struts are built into the hinges, and are no longer available new. While my car was being resprayed I thought I'd get the paint guys to give me the strut/hinge units and see if I could get them regassed. Long story short I couldn't find anyone who could do that, but I did find someone who could replace them with new struts. The new struts were even modular so I could pop them of and change the amount of gas pressure in them as required to get them right. However there was a problem - the paint guys found the struts had fatigued the boot panel where they attach. I actually had to buy a new boot panel. We played around with the new struts, but basically anything with enough strength to hold the boot would require so much force to close that it would just fatigue the panel again. So for a long time I just had a piece of wooden dowel and a cloth to hold the boot up. Then my dad noticed that the bonnet stay from his Subaru Liberty would be about the right size, so we ordered one of those and it turns outs it's perfect! These are the parts you'll need. I believe Subaru sells them as a pack with everything you need. You'll also need to rummage up an appropriate bolt and washer (I used a Mitsubishi bolt from my old car). After we took these photos we also found the bolt didn't quite have enough purchase, so we made up a steel backing plate with little tabs on the end to hold onto so we could feed it into position. You could also use a nutsert. The prop comes with a rubber grommit that's the perfect size for this factory hole. You'll need to bend the prop ever so slightly so that when it's stowed it doesn't pop out at the end. You'll need to grind a little tab off the bracket - Dremel cut off wheel is your friend. The bracket works nicely mounted like this. I added some clear film underneath to stop it marking the paint too much. The prop rests nicely on this factory metal tab behind the right rear light. To get at it you'll need to cut a little of the boot liner carpet stuff away. This is what it looks like in position, stowed, and from the side to show how it holds the boot up: Anyway, hopefully this helps someone out. Please feel free to ask questions or let me know if you'd like more photos.
  7. Hi all I'm currently looking for a pair of tail lights for a R32 2 door, preferably with factory dark blue (paint code TH1) surrounds. I would also be interested in purchasing just the covers if anyone is just selling those. I'm also looking for a 2 door boot lid. Not worried about colour but would be a bonus if it had no holes in it. I'm located in ACT but happy to pay postage or travel if you're closeish Thanks, Nic

  11. BCNR33 Boot Gas Struts Hi all, So, like many of you the boot gas struts on my car are shot, and 10kg plus boot lid guillotine is no fun. As the strut is part of the hinge and doesn't look like it comes off, I thought that while the boot was off for painting anyway it would be a good time to fix them. I did originally look at getting new replacements but the guys in Japan told me Nissan had discontinued them. Lots of people on the forums seem to have had them regassed or replaced, so I took them to a place that does that around the corner from my work. The guy said the struts go up to 1100N, but that with the hinge it won't fit on his machine so the only option would be replacement. The highest rated struts he has are 700N. I was wondering the following: 1) as people in other threads seem to have had a more straightforward experience where the guy just fixed/replaced their struts without any problems, does anyone have a recommendation for someone in Canberra who can do it? 2) does anyone know roughly what force the factory items should be pressurised to, and accordingly what force an aftermarket replacement would need to be capable of? Thank you very much in advance for your time and help, and sorry if this has been answered before (I did search).
  12. [SYD] WTB M35 boot struts I'm chasing a pair of boot struts for a M35. Mine are weak and don't hold the boot up. Happy to regas them or go aftermarket if there is ones that fit in. Just after a cheap solution!
  13. Bootlid Wire Severed I know this is a fairly common problem amongst V35's as the research I have done indicates nissan didnt make the loom quite long enough, I was just wondering if anyone else has experience and fixed this problem. The wire from the button to the boot is severed somewhere, just wanting to know if anyone could give me a rough indication of where this wire is commonly severed or damaged. I have stripped the boot and traced the loom as far into the bootlid as I possibly can but have found nothing. Does anyone on here know exactly where the wire severed as I can imagine it would be fairly local and uniform amongst all v35's. Thanks

  18. Hey guys, need help with how to go about moving the battery to the boot in my r31. I've read a lot of information On how to go about it, but I am still unsure. I know all the battery has to be in a secured box and vented (which I've already done), but I'm more concerned with the wiring and what goes where. Would be great if anyone could show pictures step by step, as I can't find any specific DIYs on this topic. I also wish to put a fuse in the boot as a safety measure, but once again, lack the knowledge and direction with electrical matters such as these. help would be much appreciated.
  19. Hi all, For free is an Black R32 Boot with latch thingy. Spoiler holes have been welded up & bogged over (I'm guessing) & the bog in the middle of the boot could do with a sand back & re-bog. Location: Baldivis, WA PH: 0402682192 Cheers, Chris

  21. So, Ive put up for years with a leaky boot in my R33. I even removed and re-sealed the rear lights (and what a PITFA that was) but no change. So I finally got off my arse and gave it another go trying to work out exactly where it was leaking from and my best guess now it that I think the water enters through the boot lid where the GTR style Nissan wing and the boot connect. I can see that the sealant is cracked most of the way around it and I think water must somehow enter through bolts? holding the wing to the boot. So, the question; How easy is it to remove the rear GTR style wing? is it just a couple of bolts and then a case of prying the sealant/boot/wing apart? Have you done this and fixed the leak? thanks
  22. Looking for some R33 GTR parts - must be in exceptional condition please. Our R33 GTR V-spec has been in storage for 10 years, in that time bits went missing and we need to replace them.

Required parts are .... Boot trim. Spacesaver wheel (preferably never used, would consider a used one if its not noticeable, Note: GTR spacesaver is different to a GTS-T one).

Front Inner Guard plastic - both sides. Front undertray. Rear guard lip, passengers side, located at the bottom of the wheel arch at the rear (where a mud flap would normally go). Standard wheel nuts. Strut Brace - standard with sticker intact and in exceptional condition.
