R34 Series 1 And 2 Front Reo Difference?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm looking at getting a new bumper for my series 2 R34 GTT Skyline. I was just wondering if there's any difference between the Series 1 and Series 2 front REO?

The front bumper I'm interested in is this:

I know I need to purchase new indicators for it, but do I also need to change the Series 2 REO to a Series 1?

Thanks!

Just incase someone finds this via google...or search..

All the headlight support parts (the black bits) are different on a S2 and S1 R34.

The "Reo Bar" is the same, though.

Here's my crap picture:

RED = DIFFERENT BITS ON S2 AND S1 (there's another under-headlight bracket on the side that isn't viewable obviously)

GREEN = SAME PART ON S1 AND S2 R34. THIS IS THE BIT PEOPLE USUALLY CUT TO FIT FMICS.

Hence the "is the reo the same on s1 or s2?" depends on what people mean by "reo" as the entire thing (reo+headlight supports) is often referred to as "a reo bar"

Just commenting to attach Greg's picture in the forums. I'm surprised it's still available on imgur considering how long it has been. Free imagehosting like that gives me anxiety.

I should also say that the while they are different the only parts that matter are the center headlight supports and center bar from S1 to S2. The center bar will work, but the S1 has holes that clips go through into the S1 bumper. So if you were super cheap you could simply drill the S2 bar. Same thing with the side/wings. They have slightly different 'clips' but can be made to work.

The center headlight brackets however, cannot.

This is also where the GTR differs, which has a different center bar, and different headlight supports (to either GTT system), it also has different 'wing' headlight supports which is what I am calling under the headlight. However those CAN be made to work with the GTT Reo for a GTR front bar by a small spacer and a drill/tapping a thread into the reo because the bolt positions are slightly different.

So people only really need the center brackets to go between GTT S1, GTT S2, and GTR if you are happy to do some tinkering.

Awesome to know. I have a Series 1, and When pulling my front bumper off for the first time i realised my reo/crash bar was a bit worse for wear, and was going to try pick up a better one soon just so i can replace it. Someone is selling a full series 2 front bar and brackets for a decent price, so was going to probably reuse my brackets and install the new second hand reo/crash bar. I also have a genuine Altia body kit to do up, spray and put on, and not sure if that will use the series 1 or series 2 brackets for the front bumper, so having both will be handy, and knowing i can drill holes out to make stuff fit between series is also handy to know!

Yeah truthfully it seems like the headlight supports for the ALTIA and S2 should be the same, but they aren't. I can only guess that the grill area of the Altia bar is different to the grill area of the S2 bar. Either that or it's due to the S1 bar having an angle up to the center bar that the Altia doesn't, or something.

That said, I recently bought an Altia bar myself, and I fit it over the S1 brackets and thought "Yes, this will all work fine" so even as I doubt my own words as I post, I also daresay you'll be okay.

Well as I will have both S1 and S2 front parts i will see what works best out of the two. Im not fussed if i need to drill extra holes, and im a big fan of Nutserts/rivet nuts and a nice painted dome head bolt as a way to hold stuff in place where plastic clips have broken and are hard to source new ones
