    I ordered a new set of wheels as birthday present to myself. I wanted a set of these for the MX5 but they don't make them wide enough in a 15. So i'm very happy to be able to have a set on the Skyline

    Choosing a wheel design was difficult enough, let alone deciding which fitment to get. I decided on 18x8.5 ET30 and 18x9.5 ET30, playing it safe due to the arches are original and mint, would be a shame to ruin them because of the offset being lower.

    I believe Nismo recommend this fitment for the GTT, so that was some reassurance

    Colour choice was also another challenge, the current bronze wheels look awesome against the pearl white and I had my head set on that. But then i saw the GT Silver was an option and can see from the photos that i made the right decision (or did i?)

    With the bodywork being in mint condition (except the difference in colour on some panels due to the pearl) my attention would be under the bonnet. I can't afford a full forge build,top mount turbo etc so went for a cheaper route. I've been collecting parts for a couple of months and now I'm at a stage where i can post about it.

    Why buy aftermarket clear side repeaters when you can just remove the orange lense yourself for free!

    As much as the Series 2 front bumper wasn't my favourite thing to begin with, I did start to like it as time passed. But it was time to find an Altia bumper,this seemed abit more tricky than i first though. Luckily i found one only a couple of hours away, and it was en route on my holiday to Cornwall, bonus!

    While down in Cornwall we took a trip over to Devon and visited the guys and girls at Torque GT. They had the HKS SSQV Blow off Valve on offer, so would have been rude not to grab one while i was there.

    The first of many packages had arrived from Japan, my replacement OEM steering wheel. This is fantastic condition compared to the one fitted to the car. The only problem was (and i didnt notice until i took the photos) was its actually from an Auto car, i didn't originally see the buttons in the advert on Yahoo Auctions,oops!



    The other half bought me some LED tail lights for my birthday in August. fitting didn't take too long :P

    Finally got the Altia bumper painted and fitted, along with some clear indicator units and chrome bulbs. Its transformed the front end and looks alot better! I'm glad i decided to colour code the centre bar and not left it black.

    The factory ceramic turbo doesn't like a bar of boost, most say around 11-12psi max is safe. After some research i decided to go for a Greddy Profec OLED boost controller to up the current boost a tad. Also hoping it'll come into boost smoother as its a little bit 'choppy' (see what i did there :P)

    I didn't like the mount that's supplied so decided to make something

    started a topic Chris' R34 Skyline GTT

    Chris' R34 Skyline GTT

    My previous project was a 1992 Mazda MX5 which I purchased stock. Over the next 5 years the car went through various changes and styles. In May 2018 I made the decision to strip the car to a bare shell and sell everything to fund my dream car. The original plan was to enjoy the car until September when the insurance and MOT expires, then begin the search for the new car. I found an extremely tidy example for sale in June and went to view it and ended up coming home with it.
