That was the plan. But with the large amount of prep and bodywork, im sure it will wind up painted or wrapped. One step at a time. Might paint it grabber blue with white stripes over the gelcoat.

Re: Steve's GT-R Build Thread

I should have said “exhaust collector” rather than flange.

Who are you planning on having tune the engine?
Figured I would ask since your local.

Re: Steve's GT-R Build Thread

Tire and wheel size is really important on the GTR for a good overall look.
in the pictures below the orange and grey wheel are the same diameter and both 30s but the wider tire on the grey wheel gets a 3/4" greater overall diameter




It all helps with the overall look

Re: Steve's GT-R Build Thread

Steve's splitter mods done note that there is no hardware hanging down from the flat bottom of the car. well other than the ones holding the pedal box in place, I may have to take care of that for you too Steve.

The body is now lined up in the right place, with all the front re assembled. now working on the door hinge alignment and shimming.

Re: Steve's GT-R Build Thread

Thanks H. Looks great. For the pedal box, I think I already tapped the floor, so I would just need the right bolts and loctite. I hope.

Waiting on new shifter from Fran, should be coming soon. Would love for you to get that and mount it proper (weld). My rivnuts were going to rub the tank.

Pedal box is tapped, not the floor
