    Default Nissan Skyline Restoration project

    Asalamo alaikum to everyone,

    as the subject tells this post is all about the restoration of the 4 door Nissan Skyline R32. first i will going to tell you how i got it.

    went to a customs auction where i got a list of items being sold in auction, Guess what, this car was in the list. however as there were no other competitor in the auction for this car, so i won the bid and gave the initial payment at the spot. however dealing with the customs people is nerve wrecking experience and they juice out each and every penny in your pocket when they have to sign any document. well thats a different story. cut short i got the delivery of the car from NLC dry port Thokar niaz baig. upon receiving the documents for registration process i came to know it was previously kept by someone in Iqbal town lahore, not gonna take any names for privacy. maybe someone knows them from here. the car was kept though in very bad condition, custom turbo piping, broken back lights, front light was cracked, well much more rusting and all. however when i received the car it was in pretty bad shape. pretty much everything was jammed, from differential to the Ignition key.

    when i called my mechanic, denter and painter. they were astonished on my decision and it was a big project and gonna cost me a lot. well i told them in reply, SHOK DA KOI MUL NAI.

    well, we started striping the car and anything we touch was rusted.

    the only thing which worked fine was the Engine, we fired up the engine after changing the oils and a little cleaning, and it started on first ignition, however it did made some pretty black smoke on first starting, then in few seconds when the dirt was burned out, it got smooth and run fine.

    took out all the suspension and found out the following.

    1. all bushes are broken
    2. rear shocks are leaked
    3. differential bearings are broken
    4. wheel bearings are worn out

    i sent the suspension to the workshop, opened up each item and ordered new parts.

    1. full suspension bush kit, PROTHANE bush kit (made in usa). imported by Basit( upgrade Motorsports lahore)
    2. set of four racing Tein coilovers bought from Apexi, Blitz, HKS, Nismo, Greddy, Rays and more JDM Parts direct from Japan - Nengun Performance online, and imported by same as above.
    3. differential was serviced, and same bearings were available from lahore, installed new bearing set.
    4. wheel bearings changed.
    5. all four wheels brake disc pads (hawks) imported from USA by upgrade motor sports.

    the disc rotors are in fine condition, just got them a little tool to get rid of all the rusting.

    The engine was coupled to an Automatic transmission, so got rid of the auto tranny and bought manual R154 manual gear from Marij from peshawar, he is a gem of a person and very nice guy, thanks Marij. and yes the Engine in this vehicle is 1JZ- GTE vtti.
    now it has been converted back to manual. the vehicle was originally manual. Thank God the clutch pedal was still there.

    all the manual clutch related stuff:

    1. master clutch cylinder,
    2. Slave cylinder.
    3. clutch fork
    4. stage 3, 6 puk eclustchmaster brand new from USA ( by upgrade Motorsports)
    5. R154 manual gear with lever( courtesy Maarij from Peshawar)

    rear new lights has been imported directly from Thailand from Ebay via Dubai, i personally brought them in my luggage.

    front lights are washed and serviced. the whole car body anti rusting has been done, denting has been done to bits, and now the car is under paint job. there are more stuff going in:

    1. greddy blow off valve
    2. dunlop drag radials semi slicks
    3. new racing radiator
    4. new stainless steel turbo pipping ( bought from upgrade Motorsports)
    5. new front mounted turbo inter-cooler
    6. air filter
    7. all the gauges, oil temp, turbo pressure, oil pressure , water temp etc.
    8. front strut bar
    9. all monograms original imported
    10. imported 3" inlet and 4" outlet Jasma approved exhaust

    now the car has been registered ( which was a hell of a task) and will insha'Allah come on road by the end of march. below are the pictures.

    yes the interior parts are also all dirty and do not work, however the windows and locks are fine, i got the new door lock and ignition cylinder and genuine GTR key bcoz the custom department didn't had any key of the car, they said they lost it. the audio system is broken, doesn't work. the climate control system is fine, it needs an electrical service. blower motor works fine and other air controls are all ok. dipper, indicator switches are all ok. however i will put new audio system, as you can see there was no speakers so have to put new speakers, i suspect someone took out the speakers while the car was in custom possession.

    Give it an anti rust coat underneath along with the arches before you mount the suspension back. Can be used on the inside of the trunk too. Friend did the same to his nissan sileighty before shifting the battery in its boot
    This car came with some solid brakes and differential which comes as a bonus to compensate the extra doors this one has
    Best of luck - Looking forward

    good going brother. nice work. bol with the restoration.

    your denter and painter look quite skilled, good work done by them.

    just a thought if you are going for the orignal manual gear box and lots of branded performance equipment do give a though to orignal nissan motor. its designed to pull the car appropriately (weight and everything).

    Also orignal steering wheel would be sweeter or something from MOMO.

    Brilliant project and well documented.

    Looking forward to more updates.

    It's a shame you have to import all these parts.

    Everything on that list can be built here and is being built here to standards which are beyond what you may think.
