It would be a whole lot easier if it was a Type R, not a Type RA

I'll post pics when I actually have the car repainted and assembled.... I just pulled the engine out today and the bay is getting prepped for paint. The flares, wheels/tires, tow hooks, hydraulic ebrake, and all the rest of the cool things will be complete in 2 weeks or so

What would it matter being 2door vs 4door? Are you talking about fitment of the rear flares? Yea a 9.5 wide wheel is BIG on a GC but I'm sure it can be done with coils, flares, and enough camber.

Oh and P.S.
You're a bitch :lol:

Yeah rear flare fitment is a huge difference, almost no work has to go into a Type R.... But super expensive coilovers check, fender flares from an S30Z check, negative camber....ummmm don't got too much of that yet.

P.S. I also scored some 16x9 +19 wheels 8) and why am I a bitch? :(

Yeah the whole you having a R32 GTR and a real Ver III RA is pretty much why. All in good fun though. 8)

The chassis/body work just started today.... I told him to take his time with the car as I'm in no rush, still trying to decide what tire and tire size I'll be running on my 18's and waiting for my 5x114.3 :mrgreen:

Nah, biggest I maybe going with is a 265/35... and I'll more then likely do a staggered fitment. I haven't decided lol...

Body work honestly should be complete Thursday or Friday. But.... I'm still waiting on a few parts and rubber. Then after that I have to put the car though safety inspection, register it, get the title adjusted for the extra width of the car, etc. Probably another 2000-2500 dollars out from having it driving daily on the road and about 2-3 weeks until I register it.
