1420V$ is the price of brakes?

Aye , thank you so much ! Nope , price for everything :) , i exchanged the brakes for a set of RG-II´s bought from a shop called " Art of wheels "


(p.s , i´m not a dude :) )


Added 2 minutes later:

# Lagano : Told ya the wheels will be better with the center caps! Front lip looks cool too now that it's matched to the paintjob. It could really use a little lower side skirts though!

Yap ! They do look much better with the center caps ! Some people like the plastic black lip look but i personally like everything to flow well together , that´s why i decided to paintmatch the lip to the color of the body :) . About the skirts , i´ve been actually thinking about getting some 400R skirts to finish off the look but let´s see H I H E

Year long Ichigo hiatus 挨温


Nissan Silvia S15 , also called " Ichigo " - a car that i´ve started my Japanese journey with . Since then it´s been a year (and few days) already .
Not gonna lie , i went through quite a lot of cars but my heart and soul was still craving for an Ichigo . In the past , months after
i sold my first Ichigo , i bought another Spec-R Aero Ichigo , but something just wasn´t right at that time , so i sold it . It just wasn´t
the right time and place in life to own that car . Now , over a year ago of owning an Ichigo ( my first one that is currently in AJ´s hands ) i´m finally ready to be a proud S15 owner again , in another words , let me introduce you to my brand new project


Project Ichigo 一護




Yep , this is a replacement of my old ER34 that i sold last week to a very nice and kind older gentleman for a reasonable price of 32 000V$ .

Well , as you can see , it´s as far from stock as it can be - in fact this exact car used to compete in grassroots drift
competitions once in it´s lifetime and then never driven again - garage lady you could say , well actually mildly tuned garage lady lmao .

Engine wise everything is pretty simple yet still very much different from a stock SR20DET used in Spec-R´s ( yes , this once used to be a Spec-R silvia )

Under the hood or bonnet if you´re fancy , are hiding 400 of the most buff horses you could ever imagine to even exist on this planet .

Garrett GT2871R turbo
Apexi airfilter
Koyorad radiator
Greddy front mount intercooler
Custom exhaust manifold
Exedy Stage 2
Kakimoto catback exhaust system
oh and did i mentioned 400 H O R S E P O W E R ?!



Just as the engine , suspension , brakes and wheels are no exception

Yashio Factory HKS coilovers with S.w.i.f.t. springs ( just as on my 180SX)
Full Cusco Rods, Arms and Links
AP Racing BBK
17´´ Yokohama Advan Racing RG-II´s on the front , 18´´ Yokohama Advan Racing RG-II´s on the back
- Wrapped in Used michelin pilot super sports rubber



Exterior wise at some point this car used to run a full BN-sports bodykit , which is as you can see , not on the car anymore yet ... .
but instead of the BN-sports bodykit we have a beautiful Spec-R Aero bodykit with 326power rear overfenders and custom fiberglass
front fenders that i´m def changing out in the future lmao . And to top the whole exterior off , authentic Vertex hood !



As you can see , the car is , or more so was originally an Aspen White Pearl Spec-R with currently "few" miss-matched bodypanels .
Even tho the car is in 50 shades of white and the engine bay was resprayed to grey at some point , it´s still a very , very , VERY low mileage car - only 34 xxx.xxx Original KM´s on the clock , that´s crazy ! This car was basically just built , competed few times in drifting competitions and then the guy never touched the car ever again until i bought it from him for " only " 2,515,000 JPY , which is something around 23 348.58V$ . UNBELIEVABLE price for a such a low mileage car with that much aftermarket parts !

Interior wise , it´s nothing 2 crazy .
Bride Brix I seats
Aftermarket rollcage ( not sure about the brand name )
HKS gauges
BNR34 GTR steering wheel
and rear seat delete



So , that´s the story on how i got myself a Ichigo after a 1 year long hiatus !



Finances:
2002 Aspen White Nissan S15 Silvia Spec-R - 23 348.58V$
66 253.39V$ - 23 348.58V$ = 42 904.81V$

Sold : 2001 Nissan Skyline R34 GT25 Turbo Series II - 32 000V$

Weekly paycheck 2x - 1 880V$

Everything together - 33 880V$

42 904.81V$ + 33 880V$ = 76 784.81V$

If you´re asking about my other cars , stay tuned for the next week . The ichigo deserves an update for itself only :-X

That's one hell of a Silvia you got there! Well it probably needs a respray but nevermind that, it looks pretty well built so it was worth buying it even for more than 20k. And i'd keep those wide fenders, they flow with the car really well!

Oh it def need a respray lmao , paint everything back to Aspen White pearl - done lmao .

I´m gonna keep the rear 326power overfenders . However the front fenders are probably gonna get replaced by Top Secret ones .

Yap , Spec-R´s are getting more and more expensive every single month so i got myself a one as soon as i could lmao . Yeah , the vertex hood and 326 rear overfenders are my fav :-X .
Actually it´s a pretty common setup for S-chassis - 17´´ on the front , 18´´ on the back ;)

Epic GT-R 
Transformation continues ?! イ囲スツう


As i´ve said on my latest BCNR33 post , i was slowly collecting parts for the GT-R . Now it was time to put all
the things i´ve been collecting for the past few weeks finally install on the car , starting off with.....

Cusco front and rear bushing set , Tomei HICAS Lock Kit and Nismo Circuit Link Pro Setup -
Which includes Tension Rod Set Pro and
Rear Upper Link Set Pro .

I was about to say , that the install was pretty easy but i would be lying but hey , a second pair of hands (from my uncle - this sounds so wrong ) were very VERY helpful !
Now , the exterior mods !
Not gonna lie , the BNR34 stockies look pretty good if you ask me . BUT the car needs MOAR and that´s why i test fitte..... ugh *coughstolecough* ugh these Original White TE37´s that my uncle had in his wheel collection .



My main goal with the BCNR33 is not only to create a stable track/daily car but i also want to modernize the car not only suspension wise but also exterior and interior wise too . At the end of the day , this car is more than 20 year old and it needs a little refresh .
*Prepare for A LOT of Series 3 parts in 3... 2... 1 ...




Next up , epic 400R sideskirts . Right after i installed the Series 3 front bumper lip and the rear V-spec spats , something was missing - more aggressive sideskirts ! Ever since i was a little kid , i LOVED the 400R , especially the bodykit that Nismo made to match the performance of the car and i told myself that once i will have that bodykit on my own BCNR33 , and that´s why i´ve decided to get an Authentic set of Nismo BCNR33 400R sideskirts from guys at Trust Kikaku !



Even tho its a 20 year old + car , i catch myself looking back at the car while walking away :-X

But , that´s everything that has been done to the BCNR33 ( for now H I H E )

Now , onto the forgotten ECR33 Skyline !



A lot of things has changed on this car since the last time you guys saw this car on the forums .
To be exact (almost) full Navan bodykit , new front grill and moar low AND a lot of engine mods ! :)))


Simple ( but really expensive ) mods and Looks much better already :-X . Can´t wait to install the lip and the new BCNR33 Nismo spoiler H I H E .



Now , RPS13 Tiem !
Nothing crazy happened to the RPS13 actually , the last pic of the RPS13 you guys saw was actually a photoshop edit of how the 180sx is gonna look like in the future . HOWEVER , the 180SX did got some stuff too , to be exact , new wheel setup !




And now onto the newest member of the family , the ICHIGO :-X

Yup , that´s right , Ichigo got some love too !

First off , Advan RG-II´s with a lot more aggressive offset borrowed from my uncles wheel collection .
God , it looks much much MUCH better with some bigger wheels on the back :-X



And also some Yashio factory staple , Yashio factory Water Pulley and HKS alternator belt

!

AND Ichigo ( totally legal ) shakedown tiem !




Also , remember when i said that this car used to have Full BN-Sports kit and at some point the owner sold the bodykit and got himself a full OEM Nismo Aero Kit ? Well , despite this Ichigo being JDM - he decided to put the "Non-JDM" OEM rear bumper on . It doesn´t look bad , but the Japanese OEM rear bumper looks much better ( in my opinion ) . Thankfully my uncle had a clean JDM Ichigo rear bumper in his parts collection , which saved me A LOT of time trying to find the rear bumper on the internet or in UpGarage . :))


The install of the rear bumper was pretty easy , uninstalled the Aero rear spats from the old bumper , uninstalled the old bumper , placed the Aero rear spats onto the new JDM bumper and installed the bumper back onto the car !



Also i have some news from my life for you . Some of you may or may not noticed that i´ve been working on my cars back at my Uncles shop again . Why ? Well , the shop i bought from Benny´s was just too big for me and was also located very far from my home - and that´s the reason why i´ve decided to sell the shop and move all my stuff to my Uncles shop (and also help him financially) . I´ve sold the shop for almost 115 000V$ but after all the taxes , the price went down to 90 750.99V$ . What am i gonna do with that money ? Well i´m planning to buy another , smaller and much closer to my home shop !
And that´s everything from my life FOR NOW !

Finances:
BCNR33 Parts - 4 185V$
ECR33 Parts - 6 321V$
180SX Parts - 3 419V$
S15 Parts - 555V$

76 784.81V$ - 4 185V$ - 6 321V$ - 3 419V$ - 555V$ = 62 304.81V$

Sold - Old Benny´s Shop - 115 000 Minus taxes = 90 750.99V$

62 304.81V$ + 90 750.99V$ = 153 055.80V$
