Re: H Craft GT-R

A start on the electrical, I added a fuse box to allow for electric door locks, windows, interior lighting etc. and you can see the KYB electric power steering unit up front under the trunk.

I as always will go way over the top with some of the things I will do and add to the build, it is made easier by the the facility that I have and the access I have the OEM car for reference.

Re: H Craft GT-R

This is how the tail light should look once done. I shall make a bunch of them once I'm sorted so let me know if you need some.

Re: H Craft GT-R

This is where the front wheel should ride with three inches of ride height splitter to floor, its the reason that I mounted the splitter to the top side of the aluminum floor, also the leading edge is one inch above the flat bottom of the car, once the car has a bit of rake the splitter underside should be about flat to the floor

Re: H Craft GT-R

Well done, I love the OEM parts mix on the car. This is one of my favourite "practical" RCR cars and I look forward to your next post to see it progress. It will surely be a great car to drive.

First time I popped in for a look. WOW very nice work. It looks like you took your time thinking about what you wanted and how to do it. Great results. Look forward to seeing more.

Re: H Craft GT-R

H, Good to see your work! We met at Charlotte 3 years ago. I have been considering several areas on my GTR including tailights. I believe that the stock GT assemblies account for the mount angle in their lensing and I was leaning to "frenching" the lights or seeing if I could find stock that I can afford. Did not consider frenching with acrylic. What is your lamp source?
KYB steering assist. I looked online and found suspension components. Please point in in correct direction.
Looking good and thanks again.
Mike

Hi Mike
Only the crazy can afford the stock lights at $1,500.00 a piece, they were $500.00 a piece back a few years when we were racing. Ill be making them available once I get going.
KYB is way high $$$ stuff, I only used it because it was obsolete too our cars and gathering dust, try a unit from a Saturn View/Chevy Equinox affordable and there are apparently controllers available on line.

Re: H Craft GT-R

Internal door release handle

This pocket will get covered in felt or something like and works with the door card to trim out the doors perfectly.
