The "skyline" Frame Between The Rear Light


Recommended Posts

From what I know, it's tightly glued together. If you want the glowing effect, you must wrap the glowing led lights around the "Skyline" word and then re-attach the plastic outter cover to it again.

Not sure if this is what you want feedback on, if not - provide more details.

not sure if these threads have what your after or if you have read them already, but ive asked the same question. a couple of people have said that they got it apart (with alot of struggle) but most just cut a section out of the back part to fit the LEDs

hey mate.. these thins are very fragile (at least 11 years old now and sun damaged) so trying to separate will always end in a breakage..

Best bet is to do as many others and myself have done and just dremel out the back section and the insert the led strip..

threads linked above have all the info you could ever need..

Corey,

    • Agree about euros.  Pulling apart is so much quicker than putting back together. Made worse when it's been a while and you can't remember everything. Any modified part seems to always be a pain to reinstall too and complicates things. There's not too many mods on my car but those that are caused difficulties. Simple things like the radiator that should just drop in, needed some finesse and additional time to manoeuvre in, same with oil cooler plumbing, head drain etc. Simple things seemed to want to fight me the whole way. Stupid standard intake plenum didn't help either. After nearly finishing everything, I saw the 2 knock sensor plugs and cold start valve plug hanging there. Was able to contort my hand enough and looking at an internet pic of valve, was able to just get the plug on and seated. Front knock sensor was similar, the rear however I can't even see. Going to have to remove starter motor to create access. FML. I've consumed that many cans of V in the last few work sessions that I should get a sponsorship. edit, I did the same with the mic and bore gauges. Spent many hours, it's one of those things that you get better at and more confident the more you use them. 
    • For me a few things compounded the issue.  - Wanting to learn a few aspects, such as hand lapping valve seats (10hrs-20hrs) - Wanting to balance the rotating assembly down to 1g on cast parts, (15hrs easy) - Not knowing this wack FWD platform, 10hrs to remove to remove the subframe/engine etc - Having never used mic or bore guages etc, thinking I was doing it wrong, finding out 2 rods were oval and I was correct (10hrs easy).  And the list goes on, each shed session was 60-90mins so it takes a lot of them On the contrary, when I sold the CA/Box/ECU it was 3hrs to remove, split, put on a pallet solo having never done it before.  This is the reason that the XR5 will get sold and I will go back to a JDM daily. Euro stuff is painful to work on.   
    • Hold your horses, it hasn't run yet. Fingers crossed,Lol Was thinking about this the other day, could of just paid someone 10-15k and not had to touch anything. My body and hands are sore AF. I understand why people just pay, it's not an easy task to do at home and a hell of a lot of work. Wife says I should have cut my losses and got rid of it. Told her to wash her mouth out with soap.
    • That sucks about the pipe.  Life loves to bend you over sometimes.  Catch can idea seems sound to me. 
    • Hi all, Enjoying learning about my new C34. Question for you experienced folks about wind noise. There seems to be a some around the A pillars. But for me, I think there's also some air leaking around the driver's window by the B pillar (e.g. right in my ear). Is this normal? It becomes significantly noticeable as you get up to 120kph. It gets louder as you add speed. The door seal is soft and in one piece. No rips or tears. The window appears to be seated properly. I am missing the external air deflector on the A pillar. Thoughts? -Kip
