***eoi*** Adm R32 Gtr Rear Number Plate Infill Panel Copies

Recommended Posts

OK ladies and gents.


I have been lucky enough to be allowed to borrow an original ADM R32 GTR rear number plate infill panel.

I know many ADM R32 GTR owners are worried about what would happen if someone was to rear end their car (I pray it never happens), as Nissan have discontinued these along time ago.

This could be your opportunity to grab one as a precautionary backup plan.

I am currently in talks with a local wollongong company, with an outstanding reputation, to take a mold of it and produce some copies.

I will be trialing fitment on my car with the first item to make sure it is 100% before any of this goes ahead.

The first item should be done in about a 2 - 3 weeks.

After that, time frame will be dependent on how many are ordered and is yet to be confirmed.

On completion, all items would either be picked up from me or posted at your expense.

Obviously the items will be in their raw form and will need to be prepped and painted (not the carbon, unless you want to), which will be up to you to organise after the fact.

The picture shows what the infill panel behind the number plate looks like on the car.

As you can see, it does need the JDM reverse lights to be relocated (if you are putting it on a JDM version), so it really is for the ADM owners, unless you want a custom light setup like I am doing.

Please note: unless I am 100% happy with the finish and fitment of the first copy to be produced, this will not go ahead.

Start Date: Tentatively around the end of March 2016 (pending quality and fitment)

End date: Around the end of April 2016 (1 month run time), subject to start date.

Actual Items on Offer: Replica of an ADM R32 GTR Rear Number Plate Infill Panel.

Cost:

Fiberglass: $250 each

Carbon Fiber: $400 each

There is no RRP on these as they have never been reproduced before.

But as an indication, i was quoted $770 for an average condition original over a year ago (kicking myself I didn't buy it)

Payment: Direct Deposit or EFT. Account details will be confirmed once this goes ahead.

Company: IFIBRGLASS.

Delivery: Either pick up from my house in Lake Heights NSW, or posted at your expense.

I will post up images of the first production item when fitted to my car, so everyone can see what they are getting.

The first item will be in fiberglass.

If any interest in the carbon item is shown, ill have the first carbon one made and test fitted again before anything goes ahead.

Let me know if you are interested and in what material and i will add you to the list.

Once the first is done and test fitted, i will confirm with you and organise payment from there on.

I will be kept updated with photos and progress reports.

Mold has been done and first test item completed in record time.

Quality is top notch.

As you can see they are practically identical.

When i picked the first item and the original up they were having a play with some carbon fiber to see how it formed.

Even without being trimmed, it looked pretty good.

I will be test fitting over the next few days and will takes some pics when mounted.

I will also take some pics after my item is sprayed and fitted to the car.

Hey R32GOJIRA,

Do you have more details on the custom rear light setup that you are doing? Even a link if it's contained in another thread. I would be keen on the CF option if the fit is as good and there is a practical solution for me for the reverse lights.

Anfanee,

Do you have an ADM or are you doing a custom light setup too?

Cheers

Rob

I have a custom LED setup from zledslights.com

My original indicators are now dual purpose indicator/reverse lights.

When they are finished i could post a video.

So this is the fitment of the fiberglass item straight out of the mold with no sanding or modifications made at all.

Its not 100%, but not all bumpers will be exactly the same, plus the original flexes a little, whereas fiberglass is very rigid.

It is pretty good considering it has not been touched, but I am a little ocd and will make it sit a little more flush than it does straight out of the mold.

Very little sanding of the edges will be required before it can be painted and fitted.

First fiberglass item painted and fitted to my car.

VERY little sanding required around the edges.

Apparently the carbon test item is ready to be trial fitted too, just need to get the time to go out and test fit it and get some pics for you guys.

if it goes ahead, I am keen for fibreglass and think I could round up a few more people keen

Fiberglass will 100% go ahead.

I am just waiting to confirm the carbon fitment for those who may want it before i lock anything in.

I'll put you down on my list and once it goes ahead, i'll contact you to make sure you are still keen and organise payment.

Let me know if anyone you know wants one, they can organise it through you and i can take their payment through you, or you can get them to contact me.

Can you also source this? As just about everyone would need it except for the ADM cars.

Ill put you on my list for a fiberglass one and confirm when it goes ahead.

I can source the lights, but it might be easier to go straight to the source:

Carbon prototype test fitted.

It is only a matte finish with a few surface imperfections in the photos, but was done so mainly to test the weaves integrity when molded around the curves.

The finished product will be a flawless high gloss finish.
