B-Man I have an unused Fiberglass UAS airbox if you want it ? The only thing wrong with it is im missing 1 of the screws for the side and it has a very light scratch across the top part of it.


Make me an offer if you like...

B-man, go to a place like Smart Aluminium - Wetherill Park, (or check yellow pages for other suppliers that are close to you)... and buy up some scrap to the value of their minimum purchase order.

Smart Aluminium's is $15, and for that i got enough alum sheet to do plenty of odd jobs, (just havent been bothered to do them), like ducts for oil cooler, panel for bottom of cooler to ensure air passes thru not underneath, and cold air intake.

Aluminium is easy to work with using basid tools like files/drill/hacksaw. So once you have it all cut and filed up, rock up to a place like Performance MetalCraft, Micks MetalCraft, Hills Motorsport, anyone you trust with aluminium welding (UAS???)

if they wont weld it up for an hours labour, cash or invoiced, hell even the old case of Crownies, then try elsewhere. They are looking at about 500mm max of fillet weld, which wont take any time at all.

So with a bit if DIY, you get exactly what YOU want for $80-150 depending if you want to polish out the weld or just polish the sheet.

You da man Roy !

I don't know why I keep thinking that I have to get other people to do stuff on my car - I am quite capable (lack of time is the only reason I guess)

I think I will give this a go.

I know a place with a new TIG so maybe we can work something out !

Cheers !

    • Haha, I’ll just have to do both… I’ll be upgrading the Skoda Kodiaq work car eventually..
    • I'm not sure if this helps or not. I recently upgraded to R34 Vspec2 Brembo's on the S2 Stag. I used this braided kit: https://safebrake.biz/home/292-skyline-gt-r-r34-awd-26tt-brake-upgrade-safebrake-performance-hoses.html Beyond this I got the R33gtr front brake hard lines, that go over axle hub just behind the dust plate and all lined up beautifully.  The braided lines were same length as the stock ones. Needed to buy 2x longer bolts for one of the hard mount points for the braided hoses up the front. Trim rear dust shields so could fit 322mm discs. It's a pretty straight forward job.   ps. the r33gtr hard brake lines have the flare nut so should bolt straight into your callipers.
    • Hi All, Just wondering if anyone has changed their stock front upper /  inner control arm bushes for nolathane and has any advice on doing so? See pic circled in red with the bushes im referring to. Can I do it myself? ie. with an air chisel and a suitable sized/diameter socket on the end. Or is it a hydraulic press job? I've already done the outside bushes, the originals popped of easy with the air chisel as they had a little lip to get some purchase on. Cheers, Pete    
    • Mate, great looking R33!  It's not too late to go European and spend your days talking about how you went from v1.01 to v1.03 of your Stage 1.5 tune and now you can bake off the line holding your chai latte without spillage. 🥲 I feel you're at the point of no return now, brace yourself!  
    • I have a Toyota Estima hybrid AHR20 2013. The diffrential arm bushing need replacing. The OEM differential arm part number is 52380-28050. Please let me know if you know anyone who can supply or supply and install the differential arm bushing. I have asked Febest Auto Parts, Auto-Parts and Auto Plus Parts, without any luck. Thank you in advance for any relevant information.
