    Chris' R34 GTT Series 2

    Time was drawing in closer for when i break my Supercharged MX5 ready to fund an R34 GTT. I wouldnt be a true car enthusiast if i wasn't already looking for cars on the interweb. My fingers were starting to hurt after refreshing various selling and auction sites here and Japan too often.

    One car I kept being drawn back to was a white Series 2. It ticked all the boxes for what i was looking for, except it was the facelift front bumper that was preventing me from looking deeper into the details. So i messaged the seller and asked for a few more details and photos, very quick responses and the amount of photos asked on request was overwhelming.

    Was it worth the 7hr round trip to go look at it, to potentially not like it? If it was as clean as it was in the photos, something major must have had been up with it if i was to walk away. Luckily this wasn't the case, infact the car was even better in person. After a test drive and a good poke around i really couldnt fault the car except for a knock on the driver side rear. So with an offer made he accepted and I drove away extremely happy! The 170ish mile drive home was faultless and i look forward to digging in and putting my own stamp on it.

    It would have been rude to not get some photos, especially with the MX5

    Looking at the pics, I'd say good choice mate. Car looks spotless.

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



    With the purchase of the Blitz FMIC 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 last week!



    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. I also purchased a speedo converter too, which i'll get booked in with my local garage to get it fitted soon.



    With the car now serviced and the cambelt changed, i wanted to record the date like they do over in Japan. So i contacted Rajikaru who supply period correct japanese stickers, and they kindly replicated the sticker for me and have now added it to their store! I also purchased some other stickers to go with it.











    We also got both cars out for a drive Sunday evening

    It was busy day today for me and the fiance as we cracked on with doing little jobs on the car. Its those simply, low cost mods that make a little difference overall.

    The engine cover got prepped and painted in silver. I was originally going to do it red, but thought it might have been too much, so kept with silver to keep it more factory looking. The text was painted red and i started to draw a black border with a sharpie but it decided to dry up, so that needs finishing at some point







    The stock strut brace got a lick of paint too



    I also gave the larger areas of the engine bay a quick de-grease along with the fitting of some red dress up bolts



    We also gave the calipers a lick of paint, you may have noticed a colour scheme going on...
