Re: H Craft GT-R

Cables cables cables, having finished up on the hand brake hub package i moved onto cables, first a mount for the hand brake cable out into the engine bay, it will have to be left at that until I get the engine and trans in the way.

Hood release was next I'd picked up a cable from the salvage yard with the hood logo on it, it should work well with the dash once I get that going but for now its just screwed to the tub.

Next I started to work on the engine cover release who's location is determined by the interior trim panels as it fits in a pocket in the head lining. So first had to make a panel onto which the front of the head lining can mount which also holds fasteners for the sun visors, then work my way back from there.

Re: H Craft GT-R

Nice! The A-pillar and headliner look great! Any reason why you went through all of the trouble instead of waiting for the parts from Superlite? I'm thinking that these should be available from the factory very soon?? Same with the side windows.

Re: H Craft GT-R

He wants to use as many OEM parts as he can....because he has them not like us mere mortals that have to design and manufacture new ones.

Re: H Craft GT-R

Oh well good to know that if you eBay score GT parts that they can be intergrated into the RCR variant.

Loving the build and good reference for future Builders.

Re: H Craft GT-R

I don't even know what to say! I've been away for while and just went through this build thread. This is the most incredible build I have seen so far. I love the fabrication of the parts and the use of the oem goodies. Thank you for sharing here on the forum.

Re: H Craft GT-R

I think Ill shorten it up 3/4" tomorrow and try to get a little more taper into it before welding in the top ring for the boot.
