    Steve's GT-R Build Thread

    http://www.racemirrors.net/ there really are a lot of sources for race car mirrors. I'm not sure I have the patience that Mark did and even then, I'm not sure it's up to the rest of the car in quality of fit and finish. May have some CF ones up for grabs in future.

    Anyone have pictures of the GT-R Fiberglass Tub?

    Ill try and grab you a pic of mine, though in car. It helps finish off aluminum panels in a simpler easier route than say Andy's more accurate style. I am happy with it to provide an easier route to finish.

    Fat Larry's GTR Build

    Sounds like a cool plan. It'll kind of be the negative of what I'm thinking. I'll be using the CF as main color with orange heritage paint scheme with some pin striping of gulf blue. Just enough to make the ones in the know to think Gulf and to others, just enough for color contrast. That is...

    Fat Larry's GTR Build

    Yeah, but didn't the new gen Heritage #9 sell for 2.5m? We are so low rent. I'm really a fan of the 1st gen, but the second gen is just so well thought out in its details....too bad with all those details comes several high fault items.

    Chuck's Jaguar D Type Build

    I was amazed when I stood next to the D at Fran's of just how small they are. Very cool and look forward to following along. If my XKE is ever done, I'd love to do one of these.

    IF you can make it half this beautiful and 2/3s the power, it'll be a killer combo!

    H Craft GT-R

    So very cool and great for you and honestly Fran/RCR. Your car may not be the typical budget of a lot of HR readers, but then again I've subscribed without error since I was 12 when my father bought my first subscription to promote casual reading and the car hobby. 37 years later, haven't...

    GT-R #14

    Fran also offers an interior tub in various materials if a more finished look is your desire. I think I'm simply adding some deluxe floor mats that will afix to the CF interior tub. No carpet expected.

    Fat Larry's GTR Build

    There two GTR's for sale by a family with change of heart. If anyone interested in immediate possession with essentially free Graz trans, I kind help guide you in the direction. I have NO affiliation other than stumbled across them yesterday.

    H Craft GT-R

    Very nice, few would or could ever tell the originals from the RCR. Certainly no compromise in appearance. Wonder which would turn better lap times though this wasn't your intention.....hard not to ask the question parked as such. Kudos Yes, I'll call. Just busy schedule and didn't want to...

    H Craft GT-R

    FIrst: Just drop dropping! Doug, yes I have an Al 5.8 with TVS installed with room to spare. I'm running the intake in GT500 format and will use driver side duct to bring in cold air. Not much rear view though, LOL.

    Luke's GT-R build

    Are these anything? Are they mold plugs?

    Fat Larry's GTR Build

    So what is actual weight of that setup? From Tb to turbos? Should give awesome weight bias with the right transaxle choice.

    Luke's GT-R build

    Finally got it out of trailer and into garage.....way too many projects This will be powered by 5.8 GT500 mill with TVS blower at about 700hp. Went with what I'm familiar in a built 996tt with GSK and oil cooler transaxle.
