Aussie Overseas + LHD R33

Gdaaaaaay!!!

Currently overseas near the middle east and found a R33 RB25DET. It's pretty rare where I am to find a car like this, so I bought it for 4000USD and have started to work on it.
I will probably have a few questions here so am happy to be part of sau.

If you have any questions feel free to ask

What dash is it using? Any pics?

So, I reckon it might be a hybrid S14 or Maxima/Custom.

The buttons in the middle (hazzard) and the mirror adjustment all look R33. The dash facia is carbon (or at least carbon lookalike with some kind of customisation) and the centre dash vent is on its own. It could well be R33 everything (gauges included) 

R33 gauges (I am not saying AusFreak's are nismo, but for size and spacing comparison);

AusFreak you may not even care. But this is like Cluedo to me!

  • Its good its good, more people interested the better, I like information. I have been working on my BMW and pretty much mastered the engine to my extent so I want to do the same for this car.

    The Nismo dash has kmh and mph mines just KM but its pretty close. The needles look different and my taco is upside down :P they said they couldnt sit it correctly. (just hate people like that! MAKE IT FIT)

    The carbon fibre feels like plastic and next time i look at the car ill pop that upsidedown screen off and see if its carbon fibre.

    i thought the engine bay would be a bit different due to the fact they changed the steering wheel side. I took this photo because im polishing the ahh thing :P that manifold on the left

     

    edit: the water temp goes above the H but when started cold the needle is 1/5th above the low point so im thinking the water gauge may be incorrect

    Ok, so I think this car definitely needs a build thread. :)
