TIMELSS build, three years in and finally one color!

Postby TIMELSS_vert » Thu May 21, 2009 2:15 pm

I've posted updates and pics here and there, but I guess its time for what some might call a build thread. I'll warn everyone now that there isn't really much documentation of work out side of the front end conversion and body kits after that. You can thank multiple PC crashes for that.

Unfortunately, I don't have any pics of the day I picked it up, but I purchased it stock, bone stock. Just the way I wanted it. That was back in '06 now, my how time flies!!!

First thing I did was strip off the parts from my coupe that I wanted to donate to the cause. The two main things were my s14 seats and my coilovers.

After that, it was time for a 5-speed swap and 5-lug.

And once the money was saved, it was time to buy the first round of Skyline parts to try the conversion. They were all OEM parts including metal bumper and radiator supports. My body man ended up rethinking the pieces that we used when I saw the GTP conversion. So, the order was placed and about 2 weeks later...

And then assembly a little later(yes raceon is using my pics, i just dont have the original any more )
Image

And when it was all said and done...
Image
Image

Those wheels were all nice and dandy except I was borrowing from my brother while he was replacing his car, so I had to give them back. But, when one door shuts, another opens. Time for the Hot Wheels Sixty Eights that were on my car for all the pics this board has seen.(The Orlando Wing House girls loved it!)(Trip back to Tampa from O-town, that was my brother's last s-chassis before he sold it)
Image
Image

So the car stayed like that for a long time until one of my best friend's pointed out that Raceon had some how gotten a hold of my conversion pics and were using them for advertisements. So I called them up and said I would like to work with them to try and get some new digs...
Image
Image

And it pretty much stayed that way, well, except for when I destroyed the front bumper on a hidden dip in poring rain. That sucked. Then it went back to the old and busted setup
Image
Image

Anyways, thats been it until a couple months ago when I called up Edward at Raceon again to get the body kit I've REALLY wanted, and updated the wheels a bit. It still needs a ton of fit and finish, but that should be coming shortly. The new wheels, Work VS-SD's in a ball dropping 18x10 -15 / 18x11 -17
Image

Heres a taste of where shes at right now...
Image

Any ways, thanks to who ever is interested enough to read this. I promise, I'll keep this one updated.

6/25/09 was the point of no return...

it started:
Image

no going back:
Image
Image

but its all for the better:
Image
Image

Saturday morning saw 2 inches taken out of the back and trip down to Bradenton FL for a car show. Supposedly took 2nd in the Fitment/Stance category, but they failed to have 2nd/3rd awards for that category (and a couple others, that pretty much sucked). But here is some of the first pics that surfaced from there.
Image

thanks guys. fenders don't have any extra reinforcement other than panel bond and screws, its actually amazingly sturdy. There are some big freaking holes in the driver side because we got a bit crazy with the sawzall, but passenger side was done more surgically.

Paint is coming, soon hopefully. We'll see what color it ends up, but I've got a friend with a pretty sick custom mix that might sell it to me.

As promised, photos hoot pics are here now.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Finally a new chapter is written. March and April were very productive months. First came the quickie single stage white paint job to make it look like a whole car and then April brought a great deal on an SR swap. This is the first picture to surface after the overhaul…
Image

Just wrapped up a photoshoot with a good friend (same one whos responsible for all the other shoots) and heres the first to be finished up

the 50mm panels are in the garage, and no, it will get painted eventually. Although, it does look true project status right now.

Man i have loved your car since the first time i saw it. it's been a long road but it's looking sexy! i can only guess that your going with a wide body in the rear?

the only thing your car needs is a RB to match that skyline front no more hard parking.

P.S. are you coming to the D1 in miami?

No, how ever, I need to get a new set and I will be going back to Edward and the crew for them. However, even though they were not branded Raceonusa when I bought them, they are exactly the same.

Honestly, I think any color would look good on it.

Pearl white would look really clean, or maybe a metallic black.

Either way, I can't wait to see it with paint on it!

i should edit that. I have stumbled on a color and think it could happen as early as a month from now. we'll see, I still have a lot of work to get the stance where I am personally happy with it. But thanks for the kind words.

Did you do anything to reinforce the end of the fender? Welded? Re-pinched?

Needs paint worse then mine now for sure...
