So it is time!
Yesterday I picked up the car from Arise Autobody, drove 2.5hrs to drop the car off with Ben from BENchmark ( follow him on instagram @benchmark.solutions ).
When I dropped off the car, I noticed that my good friend Mat Wootten had his Nissan R34 GTT in getting a few bits and pieces done. It has been many years since both of these cars have been in the same place!
We will be doing a lot to the evo while it's with benny, hopefully getting it started before WTAC as it would be great to show it off.
The car will be getting the fuel system done (surge tank setup), Motec PDM, Motec keypad, Motec M130 and a Motec E888 expander. Can't wait, and will keep you all updated!
So it’s been a while since I have updated here.
Will be releasing shirts and hoodies shortly.
Thanks for the support
Last week I moved the car to its next port of call on the road to completion… Can you guess where it is and what is happening?? 😉
Hey all! Welcome to 2016!!
I have been so busy with work I have neglected my status updates on the car!!
First of the updates is some new safety equipment. I will be pulling out my old roll cage and will be replacing it with a ‘national-spec’ roll cage. What this means is I really should start yoga just to try to get in and out of the car!!!
Thank you to Kazuhiro-San from Unlimited Works Japan for the gifts and stickers!
I can not wait to put the stickers on the car and I look forward to testing the parts you sent!
My wife was going through photos the other day.. and she came across a photo of the car last time it saw the track.
Massive change… What do you think?
Just a small update today. I have been recovering from world time attack challenge said I have not done much to the car.
With Xmas being so close, it is difficult to get into a fabricator but hoping to get into hypertune before Xmas to get things started.
I took a drive down to Arise Autobody to have a bit of a tinker with the car.
Well, I thought it was time for a colour reveal to get everyone excited about the car! Please come check it out at World Time Attack Challenge on the Carbon Plus stand!
Massive thanks to Arise Autobody for basically building the car from a shell to what you will see on the 16th and 17th of October in 5 weeks. Amazing job. Make sure to hit them up with your project. They are also able to Project Manage your build from start to finish including mechanical, etc!
Thanks to Candice Campbell Photography for the support from day one, and providing your artistic touch (make sure to have a look at the rear bulkhead of the car!!)
Huge thanks to my business partner Tim at SpeedRun. You have put up with heaps of my shit and have sacrificed many weekends to help out.
Thanks to everyone else that have pitched in and helped along the way.. sorry if I missed you!
It’s been a big week for Arise this week.. But the biggest push is yet to come! 4 days left before the car needs to be on the stand!! Wholly crap!
Front end mocked up.. (Can you spot the little turbo? 😛 )
Peekaboo! I’m thinking about running no mesh… Looks so clean without it!
The pictures just don’t really show how wide it truely is.. You really need to see it in the flesh to appricate how wide it actually is!
Buffing! And the paint is just poping under the light!
And lastly, candices artwork just gleaming after being clear coated….. Looks mint and can’t wait to get it in there!
Can’t thank Arise Autobody enough for getting the car to this stage in 5 short weeks. Including dropping the engine and so many other modifications! Make sure to give Arise a like on Facebook! Arise Autobody
Another shout-out to my beautiful wife. A lot of hours went into her artwork, and it paid off! Was good to see her painting again! Make sure to check out her photography and artworks on her Facebook page. Candice Campbell Photography
And finally, thanks to my best mate Tim Buchan for putting up with me during this whole roller coaster. Still a lot to go but so much now accomplished! Make sure to check out our business page! SpeedRun
