Updates for me: ordered my new gaskets and spring for waste gate, replaced all fittings on my braided brake lines as i noticed a couple were leaking, finally finished the wiring tidy up behind the center console and dash ready to install my new SABER gauges and new ignition barrel.

 

I have a cupboard full of parts ready to go so now just have to move the car to its new location so it can be finished off :D

Update: got a house, loving it, car isn't.

 

Bought Stevo's 18's, getting them painted... white.

 

Car will pause for a little longer as I build Club Shed Brighton. Hoping for it to be up in the next month or so, looking at a 9x12 I think.

 

Not sure if I will keep the R33 at this stage, with the house and all... Have my eye on a pretty hot 2dr Excel.

Well i figure that the car cost me 7k, I'll probably get 4k for the parts. If I was to reshell id probably need to spend a good 1.5k for a neatish series 3, put a lot of time in to reshell the parts and then the car would still owe me a good 9k and lets face it, who would pay 9k for a r31? No one would, so I may as well cut my losses...

Update for me...

 

Car is again running, going hard as hell even on only 7psi... hehe... big skids round my block tonight

 

Matching Sparco harnesses are in, bonnet is being painted ready to be fitted. Alligned the rear tonight and adjusted the Konis all round ready for the weekend.

 

Looking at spending friday afternoon out on track at basky, anyone keen to share the track for the day? It'd get pretty lonely and boring out there im thinking :(

 

Had an organiser from the NWCC come and check my car over for the hill climbe, was most impressed and said there'll be no issues entering on sunday, now the only thing im worrying about is the weather. Highclere hill climb is not friendly in the wet... especially in a car im not use to with so much power and little weight.... rain rain go away......
