H Craft GT-R, Jared's build.

Hi H, Happy New Year.

When you fabricated the LT4 intake elbow, did you also make the flanges or did you buy them? If you bought them I would like to know what the part number is and where you purchased them from. Thanks for you help.

Intercooler cold air intakes, the intercooler gets its cold air from the ducts above the rear wheels via the rear wheel arches and 4" aluminum ductings. this part of the job was about creating an interface between the wheel arch and duct.

A flange was welded to the duct onto which I sat a wooden disc and ally plate which were hot glued to the underside of the engine cover to locate the position.

This was then turned into a plug for the part, GRP was played up, left to cure, removed trimmed and bonded into place.

An edge trim bubble seal finished it of.

Lazering of the front bumper ears, this is a mod the race cars have, and quite frankly the front bumper sticks out way to much.

Creating a paint line, below the line will be black above in the blue body color, this reduces the bulky look of the rockers, on the race cars below the line was a carbon sacrificial pice that was regally replaced.

A nylon disc was turned up 1/8 did smaller than the cutting disc, which was then run along a straight edge.

The last two pieces of the engine floor have been made up along with trimming back the underside of the rockers.

The kit supplied hand brake lever got thrown out and replaced with an OEM one, well the boot that matched the shift lever boot would not fit on the kit supplied one :eek:

Yes this is a water jet, and yes that is a Mitsubishi truck windshield on there, on a wooden form.

But now we have a glass GT-R rear window. Now considering that an OEM window is $1,400.00 if you can get one, then I like this option a whole lot more, perfect profile no, but really close and with a little work a whole lot better looking than the plastic one.
