We took the factory struts from his Nismo GT-R and replaced the springs with Swift Spec-R springs, enjoy the pictures below:

UPDATE!

It's been a long time since we've updated this thread,

Recently had a customer bring in his newly acquired Aurora Flare Blue Black Edition for an inspection, and quick service shortly after he purchased it from East Coast.

Unfortunately, Even though the buyer had a PPI completed, there were a host of issues that weren't noted in the inspection...

Looks like someone's been running very rich..

First task was to inspect car. East Coast winters can be rough, and we spotted some serious rust on the flanges and main tubing of this exhaust:

Next most obvious thing was the heavily worn, cracked OEM rotors:

Ordered Alcon C-hooks immediately!!

Looks like the previous owner hit something quite hard to bend both lower grill brackets, as well as damage the front lip.

First thing we had to do was replace the worn-out set of tires on the car (uneven, cupped treads) with new Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.

Just so everyone knows, Front: 285/35/20 & Rear: 305/30/20 fit perfectly on stock GT-R wheels.

Second thing was to address the fueling issue the new owner was having; the power abruptly cutting at WOT.

Found a few issues that needed to be addressed immediately:

Ever wonder how a fuse gets itself to this point?

IMG_4078Resized%20WM_zpscvn5zpdj.jpg

We found what looks like an "attempt" to hard-wire the fuel pumps, with one of the wires worn bare and rubbing against the chassis (probably what was causing the fuse to nuke itself).

We're slowly working through all the issues on this car to get it back into fighting shape for our customer, its new owner. We'll have some forthcoming updates on the progress.

On a lighter note! We added this new little lounge area for anyone that visits :)

Wow-- used GTRs are almost at the same level of "POS" as used Murcielagos are.

Very charitable of y'all to be doing the owner the favor of agreeing to work on that headache on wheels.

Hello Everyone!

Hope you all are having a solid week and finishing strong, Here are some updates at the shop!

The Line up outside this week

A few more Overtake GT-R's inside being built, this is a great comparison of the gloss finish vs the matte finish :)

IMG_6440_zpszbftny4z.jpg

Bonus points if anyone can tell me what kind of exhaust is on the Gloss Overtake GT-R!

The Blue GTR we've been working on for our customer has some updates as well!

New rotors to replace the old cracked ones.

The fuel harness turned out to be quiet a bit worse then we expected and required more mending than expected

Here are some before shots.

After unraveling the harness and finding exposed wire and literally some of the worst wiring we've ever seen, we then set out to fix it.

After mending the harness,

Once the blue GT-R nears completion we will be taking it to get tuned and then installing a new Greddy exhaust and have more solid updates to post!

I know it's time consuming and companies would rather just "work," but it's nice to see updates like this. Thank you for sharing and including pics of what's going on at the shop.
