Hi...... I have questions that I don't know where I can ask except here

1. If I have a car and I want it to respray, how much does it cost for foing it? For example, FC3S

2. according to 1), if i change its color, is it hard to tell the officer for changing the new color and how much does it cost for telling the change???

3. If I go to a garage and tell them to change its engine to a new one, is it hard to tell the change to officer? My friend told me that it is very hard because there have to be an engineer who garuntee the engine change and etc. and how much does it cost for the change????

4. How much does it cost for RWC and rego, if the car hasn't registered????

Thank you very much.

lol @ r34gtt-R abo bob for both being a wiseass..

1 & 2 - There is no paperwork to get the car resprayed or colour changed, so you can just go ahead and do that.

3. if the engine is a DIFFERENT type totally to the old one (say RB26DETT engine off a GTR) then you will need to get it fully engineered which can cost a bit. If its the SAME engine you can just pop it in, however you'll probably want to transfer the engine number to it, so both the plate and the engine number match. Vicroads can probably do that.

4. If the car hasn't been registed or is unregisted .. Vicroads needs to inspect the car before it will be registered again, and they're pretty strict about it (more than a garage) so NO modifications. A RWC is about $70, but that is just the cerficate itself if everything passes. If it don't, you gotta go get it all fixed up. After that you just pay the normal rego (i think) which is $520 or something.

This means......

If I change the color from white to grey........I can freely do it.

If I wanna change the engine , for example, RB20DET -> RB25DET/RB26DETT or 13B -> 13BT, I have to get it engineered (or not ?? :blah: ?? ).

I'm just a bit newbie of this things.......Thanks for helping me.

[2] AkEaKe, i think what you're asking is if you have to inform vic roads if u respray the car a different colour? thinking about it logically, yes, you would because when you first register a car i think you have to let them know what colour it is. if this is changed its important for identification purposes to let the "officer" (vic roads) know about it. that said i doubt many people tell vic roads

[4] stamp duty is payable at the rate of $8 for every $200 or part thereof (from memory). for my R33 GTS i piad $1025 this included one years rego + stamp duty.

I had my car resparyed factory black with a blue pearl for $1200 :) mates rates tho :(

I can put you onto this mate of mine who should be able to do it for about $1800-2200 depending on how much labours involved. PM if your interested.

Ahh bayside blue, yes he can do any colour. He just needs the paint code. What colour is your car atm? I can only assume that big $$$$$ are involved with changing the colour completely (ie going from wine to TV2) because of the extra work involved.

    • 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.
