LIZBEFF GARAGE

Post by Waffelz on Sat Oct 13, 2012 9:47 pm

Yesterday I sold the Stato (surprise) and now I have a VN daily and a new (hopefully long term) project car.

Project "Budget 31" is this mint Series 2 R31 Skyline on dedicated gas. Short term plans are suspension and body work, long term is a RB20 or RB25 swap depending on how boring I can be and how much I can budget.





Picking up the 31



One of my "mates" got creative in photoshop





"Before" shots



This weekends fruit pile: S13 Silvia front coilovers, lower control arms, hubs, rotors, calipers, extra lock steering knuckles and swaybar. R33 Skyline drivers seat. 16x8 meshies. R33 Superlow King Springs.





Shiney!





Before and after on the difference in steering lock













That's front suspension almost done. I need rack spacers because my steering arms are too short so the front wheels have too much toe out. Tomorrow seat goes in, as well as rear springs and the diff is being locked. I'll raise the front coilovers a little once I get the rack spacers in. Hope you guys enjoy this build thread.

Today's crew



DRiFT steering wheel on S13 bosskit





R33 seat installed, sits a lot lower than the standard seat and has better lumbar support



Standard R31 springs versus R33 King Springs



Minus 2 more coils





R31 Ti rims are possibly the gayest on earth, so matt black it is



Gotta stay fueled Twisted Evil





How it sits today compared to yesterday morning, no money spent today either. Rear still sits too high but should have rear coilovers soon.



This is my mate's drift car, I call it the Toyota Table

Got some interior work to do there mate, looking a little worse for wear. Nice drop work btw, looking good. Going for a new set of rims one day or sticking with those?

Haha that's just how I like my interiors mate Wink sticking with these wheels at the moment. Got the 16's up front, a pair of 15's and 3 pairs of 14's for skid rims. A N/A RB30 on dedicated gas isn't that much of a powerhouse so the plan is to try and pop the motor at the next drift practice at Mallala, then RB20DET conversion.

How soft are you drifters these days? Back in the day we had no such thing as run off. There wasn't a lot to hit in Wingfield but certainly no run off Very Happy

If you couldn't find anything to hit in Wingfield you weren't going hard enough Wink

Going out on track's cool, you can really push yourself without fear of taking some random person out in an accident or loss of license. I get my fulls next week *touch wood* maybe the 31 will make a street appearance when I have 12 demerits to play with

Haha patience Ssemper, I've spent a lot of time searching for a good motor. Picking up a RB20DET next friday for $800 (already paid deposit) It has been rebuilt and is coming out of an ex-show car VL. Includes long motor all accessories, manifolds, loom, and an unlocked (remapped) ecu tuned for a TD06. I picked up another complete motor with low compression in the 5th cyl for $500, so I also have spares of everything and this one also has a standard RB20 turbo.



Will have some progress next weekend hopefully, The list before Matsuri in early march includes: Motor swap, surge tank or fuel cell and pumps, intercooler and piping, new rear brake setup and tune. So I'll be broke for the next 2 months

Enough for ya Ssemp? tongue
