Brian has wanted a R33 Skyline since he was a child. He remembered playing countless hours of Gran Turismo with the R33 and wanted to experience it in real life. After many years of searching, he finally got his hands on this Motorex R33! The car was in great condition and had some rare options/pieces already installed on the vehicle. Some of these parts include;

-Nismo authentic N400 body kit

-Nismo carbon fiber rear wing accents
-Nismo carbon fiber B pillar covers
-Nismo side markers and clear turn signals

This is the condition the R33 arrived to us.

While the engine was removed to be rebuilt, we decided to get rid of years of dirt and grime out of the engine bay. A nice thorough steam clean would do just the trick!

While the Skyline was in our shop, Brian requested that we have it cleaned up and brought back to it's best condition as possible. Assessing the condition of the paint after sitting for several years in storage, we suggested suggested a full paint correction, ceramic paint coating and full interior detail. With the initial cut of the polisher, you could easily see the red metallic flake in the paint that you couldn't see before. The taillights had seen years of abuse. We took care of those as well!

Before polishing is on the left and after polishing on the right!

We loaded Brian's R33 up so we could deliver it to him at WannaGOFAST Ocala!

He was ecstatic to finally get some seat time with his dream car! While the car was fresh off the trailer we decided to get some glamour shots before it got dirty.
