    Not many R chassis in the world given that sort of attention to the undercarriage, would be a different type of joy being able to drive the end result knowing the work gone into it.

    bays on GTR's are hard work to get OCD levels of clean & tidy.

    Well this is high praise. Ordained by the OCD Pope himself.

    It’s handling great now everything is sorted. Is quite firm, but gives lots of feedback. Brakes are so much better than before.

    Greenies at work didn’t care too much. I ride my pushy 25km to work most of the time, so it almost cancels out. Haha.

    Yeah, it's nice to drive now. I've got it booked in for the dyno on the 12th of August. Can't wait! I've been driving around on 1 bar since I bought it (like 3+ years ago).

    So awesome that’s it’s coming together.

    Nice pickup in relation to the rear strut top, that combined with diff being run in ought to make it an all together nicer thing to drive?!

    Well, there were a couple of teething issues that caused nasty clunks in the back end. First, the sway bar was hitting the tailshaft on large bumps. Fixed. Secondly, the top of the rear right coilover was rattling around. It turns out that when the body shop removed the subframe, they just undid the single strut top bolt instead of removing the two flange nuts. When they put it back together, they left the rubber bush out. I had seen it floating around the boot and wondered what it was. All sorted now. I also went and did figure-8s and the diff is good and quiet now. I also hit up Rorge for some new brake pads and installed these on Wednesday night. The car had a wheel alignment last week. The toe was 15mm on one side at 20mm on the other. No wonder it was so bad. The guys at the shop were very impressed. He said they all spent some time having a good look at it.

    Finally, yesterday was the first time I drove it to work. I've worked there for nearly a year now and no-one had seen the Skyline. It drove perfectly. Happy days. A minor whine in the diff from 70-90. Hopefully it goes away.

    The next stop is the dyno to wind the boost up and finally tune the Adaptronic

    Looks nice. Was the wheel done with leatherique?

    I do that on the side they come out nice but aren’t super hard wearing compared to a re-trimmed wheel especially if you have rings on.
