took a few pics today, not done much to it yet as i got to work on the toyota any chance i get. i have fixed the screen washers woo hoo! the pipe was all squished and manky. also dropped the front end a tiny bit, need to come down another 10-20mm i think. i also threw on some 30mm spacers on the front, the rears are flush but the fronts were totally lost, not quite there yet but much better. just got to work on the springs next. the coilovers are threaded most of the way up so i might be able to bodge some other springs on, the ones on it must be 600pound and have no give at all. also they are 14" long and have no rubber insulators in the spring seats so they are noisy as hell.
that is proper cool! I actually really like that, seems basic compared to supra, but suppose narrow bodies are the base model? Rocking the Driftoy stickers gets you hyper man points anyhow, so cheers for taking some pics mate Interesting to seeing what brand of coilovers they are on it ?, Probably some mental hard spring rates on there if they are from the U.S. Has he kept the rear trailing arm springs on the back? Or are they on the damper? I met the guy with the shagged white, widebody one at dwyb and it skidded really well with a few mods.
Good luck with it man, looking forward to the progress and to think you haven't shown anyone on here the skyline yet! you got some Rad cars mate

its not really base model spec dude, lux interior and intrcooler etc, think there was one below this with cloth seats and no cooler? dunno really the history gets confusing with these, especially as they go under different badges in the states... i cant figure out the coilovers, they are struts all round but cant tell if they are conversion kits or actual coilovers made for the car. i will get them off soon to try and sort out better springs so after a clean up it might be more clear. i want to get cracking with the mark II cos as soon as its out of the way the skyline can come out of the shadows again. then i'll wack up a thread on it.
