The L shaped thingy is what th bonnet catch and lock assembly is attatched to. Open your bonet and have a look. You'll see what we mean by the L shaped thingy. it has 2 bots at the top and one on the botton and hs the horns attatched to them.

And no, no issued with fitment of the GTR bonnet around the GTS headlight nd indicators.

Just double check to see if you have two clip holes on the inner ide of each headlight. If you do, thts where the GTR grill clips in, if you dont its no big usse, it clips into another hole as well

You dont have to get the gtr latch and bracket if you dont want to. The gtst one can be easily adjusted to fit the gtr bonnets clip. Depends how much money you want to spend on the car. If your on a budget then just use the gtst one

Do you have any further tips for the modification of the gts bonnet catch to retain the gtr bonnet? have had a bonnet flip up at high speed which wasn't pleasant so hopefully the mods are reliable. will go to bonnet pins if required, but i would prefer not to use bonnet pins.

There is 3 bolts on the latch connected to the l-bracket. Undo the bottom middle one and put the bottom of the latch forward which will angle the top of the latch further backwards and line up with the clip on the bonnet. Just keep adjusting till you get it. I did mine and havent had any problems.

spend $100 get a gtr latch , saves you hassle

you dont need a gtr latch - the latches are exactly the same.

the only part that needs to be changed is the "L" shaped bracket of the front reo, by changing this "L" bracket it relocates the standard bonnet latch to allign with the gtr's latching position.

this is the part that your horns should be bolted too, and also if you have a greddy fmic this is where the top mount bolts to.

i picked up my "L" shape reo bracket for approx $40 or so.

    • I still have Garrett parts to build GTX2860 if interested. 
    • I reckon coilpacks too. Mine went at exactly 100,000kms
    • In the process of riding up my car lol, am trying to get a decent looking oil cap. Some say they are fine to fit all RBs or even all Nissan, others like a stock GTR oil cap say rb20/25/26 but they won't fit a neo rb25. Is this due to the stock plastic engine cover or is there something else different?
    • Well Coolant pressure increased significantly under + boost.  Enough to bypass rad cap Coolant pressure normal under low load conditions and no overheating. Head off and you can see where it was bypassing the cylinder ring to coolant chamber on both head and gasket. Head cracked tested and serviced, all good. Block was only visually inspected, so please god ...  let that be ok   You could argue that is a Head gasket failure but it was still very much a complete unbroken gasket. So suggests some stretch on the factory head bolts. I know others that have had the same as above and not even taken the head off, just put in studs and  continued on for years.  
    • Just jumping into this one, someone's decided to try get into my 34 by bending that top door window trim back.  Anyone know how to remove these? Going to try and bend it back properly and sikaflex it... Cheers
