Hello from N.Z

Recommended Posts

Hello all from across the ditch

Have recently come back to the "Light"  side and have got myself another RB in the form of an 89 A31 Cefiro. Have been a long time Nissan fanatic but have spent some time away (and currently still own) a 98 Subaru WRX V4 STI Type RA.

Anyway, the project is underway, picked this up with no Reg or Wof but has Cert for it's manual/turbo conversion and adjustable suspension, getting pretty close to having it road legal again and looking forward to being able to enjoy it with some spirited driving.

I notice the N.Z part of the forum is quiet... to say the least, maybe we can do something about that... maybe not. Hoping to be able to get some knowledge and track down some harder to find parts.

Cheers!

Welcome back to the club! I hate to be a downer, but it looks like your car is missing a component. 😂

The body looks pretty clean considering most of these have been turned into drift missiles. 

Is there an interesting story behind how you picked it up? :) (also more pictures please).

Thanks Steve85!

I can confirm the bonnet was just off for maad (dis)respect points hahaha

Not much of a story... picked it up off a friends brother who ran out of funds to finish it (twins will do that to a man)

Initially, drift missile was the intended goal for it but have since decided that it's too nice and straight for a novice to learn how to send it towards a wall sideways so now i'm just working towards getting it back on the road. very close now.

Ah nice. I wondered. I thought it might have been chopped up for "drift style points". And picking up someone else projects can be fun. It's how i got a couple of my cars on the cheap. Welcome aboard. I'm sure there'll be heaps of people interested in this. Maybe start a build thread so I can follow along with your progress.

Cef looks great! (so does the RA).

I just got back from 2 weeks in NZ, so many Jap imports! Also, $2.15c per litre for 91! 😮

I'd love to see more Kiwis on the boards, maybe I can send you some stickers to hand out at any meets you go to? 

Thanks,

Christian

Sounds like a plan mate! I'm hoping to get some interest going on the NZ forum on here as well.
