Hood-Bumper Fitment Gap


Recommended Posts

Hello gents!

 

 

@ThePurpR34 here, so I purchased this R34 GTT earlier this year. I have essentially been tackling the things the previous owner did/did not do to better fit the car to my standards.

 

According to him it is a front gtr z-tune bumper and z-tune hood YET clearly the fitment is not proper. As you can tell from the picture, the grille part of the bumper seems to be a straight line whereas the hood curves up for the grille area creating the gap.

 

What kind of hood will fix this fitment issue? From looking it looks as though an oem gtr hood would fix?

 

Never really introduced myself on these forums, lots in the future for this car so I'll most likely create a thread once it's re-wrapped. Thank you guys for the advice and phenomenal amount of knowledge around these forums!

Depends.....

If the bumper is made to fit GTT (and therefore not explicitly GTR) and is perhaps intended to be used with the GTT bonnet, and the GTT bonnet has a different shape (lower, flatter) to the GTR bonnet, then that would explain it.

However, seeing as it is probably all one kit to make a GTT look like Z-tune GTR, that might be poor logic. Otherwise, I have no ideas.

Looks like you have a Z tune style bumper for R34 GTT. The bonnet is for a GTR conversion. So you need either to change your bumper to a Z tune GTR type bumper or you could get a GTT bonnet like this one:

Same problem here, I bought the bumper, bonnet and fenders from Luxury sports in NZ and they were a terrible fitment, badly moulded.      I had to do a lot of alterations to the kit. I installed the gtr front reo bar and all the brackets which did help to pick the nose up but it's still not perfect.

    • The price of gtrs has just gone completely stupid. Are they worth it? Hell no. Bout 7-8 years ago R34s went down to $38k, r32s on this site could be had for $9k-$12k and people were shit talking them by saying they wouldn’t tough one at those prices coz of the work needed  I had a r33 gtr. it was good value for money at the time  if I had $200- $400k to spend on a car, I sure as shit would not be buying a gtr 
    • Don't know about this one. Though I spent a lot of time looking at cars that I couldn't buy. This worked for me:   1) Make account on carsales 2) Search for the car you are after, eg. R34 GTRs 3) Save the search and tick the box for notifications 4) Receive email / notification every time a car is listed 5) Save the car by clicking the heart button 6) Go through your saved cars periodically and see which ones stay listed for ages, which ones go down in price and which ones are gone in no time   I haven't looked at GTRs, but I noticed a good bargain won't last a week, sometimes not even a weekend. You won't see those if you only search occasionally. The ones that ask for too much don't sell and stick around forever.
    • IMO anything less than this isn't worth it
    • Contact East Coast Customs they have been working on them for a while and know their way around them https://www.facebook.com/eccustoms
    • The car has been around for awhile now and is popular. So a good portion of mechanics have probably worked on them.  I just did a google search of "Brisbane import mechanic" a few popped up
