ok, BIG stuff happening. spent the weekend stripping the interior and fitting the gear.boot has been redone with grey fabric and rear parcel shelf re-done in black fabric to contrast with the grey/silver, and also with MDF cut to fit (with cut-outs for the rear wiper). head unit in and now centered (standard was off to the left (?), plus doors done...pics to follow when image shack works!!

edit: stuff it...went to photobucket instead! HA!.

Remember...this is a limited money project...i could use vinyl, or something more bling worthy...plus lots of LED's etc...but this is to show what ANY one can do on a tight budget. (well kinda tight). AND this is stage 1..just get it in and working.........later down the track the boot will be upgraded to something more show worthy!!

looks good mate. just a word of caution tho, with yoru sub boxes there, make sure they are secured very tightly to the floor and kept off the rear quarter skin. as a fellow 31 owner, i have seen, and been the victim of objects being pushed against the panel from the inside and pushing dents out when going round corners. its a nasty result.

otherwise, good work! i'm currently working on my own boot setup. where did you get your carpet?? i just bought 60 bucks of auto carpet but they only had a dark grey colour - would have preferred light grey....but oh well.

haha..yes sub box's not secured yet.so i know what you mean...bangbangbash etc... will be done when mate can get car in!.....and there will be a fill panel from the subs to the rear of seat so as to cover up the wheel well, make it all look like a continuous panel.

oh the grey carpet ?? my mate works for Straithfield audio and this is what they have in there install section...nice of him to use it for moi! eh!

AND i also got a 2farad cap in aswell...but didnt take a pic yet..also got LED's and some strobe lights coming soon (HK) so when it's all in i'll get some more pics and maybe even a vid (youtube) of it all working!!

    • Here is my 2013 Nissan Skyline 370GT Type-S has a factory Nismo exhaust and Enkei rims. Shes completely unmodified. Brought her from Cult & Classic and drove down from NSW to Tassie November last year. 
    • Yet another thread bump because I want to talk about this: The general gist that this guy found for a MK7 Golf GTI is that by adding a venturi from a 2022 Tiguan he managed to pull crankcase vacuum far more reliably under boost which effectively stopped oil consumption on his engine in track conditions. An earlier video details how that venturi works: Basically one port is atmospheric vent, one port goes to a boost source, and the last port goes to the crankcase vent. There's a lot of discussion on here about scavenge pumps and all that fun stuff, why not try to replicate that by pulling some energy off the compressor? There is one catch though and that is that the PCV diaphragm on these cars appears to completely block off airflow from the intake when there is enough crankcase vacuum. This contrasts with the RBs where there is basically nothing stopping vacuum from the intake from sucking a big gulp of oil if it gets into the crankcase vent.
    • Hi All, Brought a 4 Door 2013 Skyline 370GT Type-S in November last year. Absolutely loving the car, noticed a few audio issues speakers cutting in and out and the 12V circuit seems to be completely dead (after checking and swapping the fuses) but just wanted to say Hi     
    • Could you please express this thought again with some clarity added?
    • So, whilst the Bogan Cruise Ship is GTG, and I had organised some time today to go on the SAU NSW cruise, my best laid plans where kicked in the balls, well, kicked in my right knee to be exact Now, after a bit of arthroscopic "honing" and tibial band lengthening "modifications" , I'm sitting on a couch in a prescription induced drug haze, watching 5hit on the Youtubes and falling in and out of consciousness......good times
