The New Beginner.
Date; Friday 10th January.

Hello, ladies and gentlemen!
I'm Hagen, that whose just finish every of education courses, and my skills could do body work repairing, welding, vehicle maintaince, and eletrical. I use be work at privated performance shop company. My currently location would be; Osaka, Japan.

Since, I need set of wheel to easier for me to drive around town, and getting to work....

Today, I decied to having nice walks as wonderful day, I went to local cafe to grab iced mocha. Mmm, so tasty coffee, and about 6 mins of walking. This vehicle catching my eyes, it is Nissan Skyline R33 GTS25T S2, it does have some of modifications dones. BBS wheel, HKS exhuast, optional kits, etc. After, looking aound the vehicle and reading the information, seller turn up. Whist, we was talking each other, seller noticeable acting like quite cagey and ask some of stranges question. I checked HPI or some like this vehicle checks, that does check that vehicle don't have flags, crimes, savage, etc. Unfortunately, this vehicle came up flagged as failed doing finance, so that meaning seller haven't paided the vehicle, so that definitely walk away.

At end of day, I didn't went home empty hand. I bought new vehicle! I paid healthy price, 10,000 V$. That fair of the price, let me show you.
Meet, Ducky. She is 1995 Nissan Skyline (ECR33) GTS25T S1, under hood you will finds 2.5 litre inline 6 petrol turbocharger. She is pretty 100% bone-stock, which is perfect for me because this vehicle haven't been messed around, or modified. This vehicle was originally red but, it was damaged during hurricane, and boughted savage one then rebuild bottom to top, the whole of body has been respray to Lighting Yellow, as common finds on S15. I'm quite digging yellow R33, don't know why Nissan doesn't sell yellow GTS25T. Interior wise, like I said, it is everything standard, pattern seats. She won't be long till first modified coming up.

Clearly, Ducky was repaired carefully and passed inspection without issues. For 10,000 V$, it just right the price.
Glads, I didn't bought white one or it would be turn out horrible nightmare.

Wallet;
Before ~ 20,000 V$
ECR33 GTS25T ~ - 10,000 V$
After ~ 10,000 V$

Hmmm nice find!
But the hurricane part triggers me, flooded cars are a pain in the ass with wiring, and if u don't rebuilt it for urself, you are going to be in a danger spot.
Wiring, rust, engine problems, etc. so, be careful.
I know that because i got an S14 and i'm rebuilding it (it was flooded because of haghibis), and rebuilding flodded cars it's a pain in the ass.
So, be careful!

What a nice find! As @FranklinAnderson said, hurricane thing might be something bigger then you think. Can't wait to see what you will do to R33 ;)
Good luck!

Fortunately, previous seller fixed whole of problem, all wires was replaced from other dontor GTS25T, and he done pretty everything ticks, rust free, and engine is healthy. Basicly it just faultless ECR33 out there. I should explains of more detail later on.

Oh, that's good.
If u got some documents like phtotos or vids of the rebuilding will be better, if not be careful.
With my s14 that was rb swapped i thought that we could save some mechanical parts, and i ended replacing almost the entire car, only thing left is the bare body, side and rear windows, more on that later.
So, don't underestimate a flooded car, trust me.
Hopefully all of that was done correctly and the car isn't problematic, but be careful, keep it up!

As I been inspected today plus explains.
Inspection Day.
Date: Saturday 11th January.

Today is Saturday, where my time is free. Some people has mean to about "hurricane damage". They could be risky, or dodgy.
That why, I uploaded next day of I purchased Ducky, it is time to explaining to do.

Ducky is inside garage, and hood is open. The seller seen very honestly gentlement, and he does buy, fix and sell for profit. He have proof of Ducky repairing, clearly the engine, wiring, whole of interior, ECU, some of suspension, some other parts came from donor vehicle. I been inspected the engine compression, all cylinder seen healthy, and spark plugs is good condition. If, the wires are bad, it would be likely to fuse blown and possible throws warning lights on the cluster. She have loads of paperwork, as well. Whist, I competed the inspection progression, the brake, suspension, wheel, engine and wires. Only I founds problem are; rusty and lipped front discs and it is possible required the service.

For brake, I was orignal planned to conversion proper Brembo brake, likely it would be R33 GTR brake system, since R33 and R34 both have same brake system and size. To order, wheel need larger to fit Brembo brake, the OEM wheel have to go. I was thinking bit more classy/retro style wheel with nicely grippy tyres, since my OEM wheel have mixed brands which is bad point, rear wheel felt less gripping than front does, but still worst grips.

Anyone whose have suggestion for wheel, I wanted to fitting 17 inch or 18 inch. I was thinking Super Advan Racing V2 wheel, which is that three spokes style.

The Dirty Restores | Part 1 out of 2.
Date: Wednesday 15th January.

I have whole of R33 Brembo brake kit, that includes discs, pads, and caliper completed kit. I'm not going re-using old discs and pads since I'm going to replace factory discs and pads to uprate one, also I'm flushed whole of old brake fluid to Dot 5.1 for maximum brake efficiency and performance. Do I going to used Brembo caliper into Ducky with freshy discs and pads? The answer is, no. I'm going to restoring caliper, they like over 10 years olds. Mainly reason I am restore it because it is would be improve durability and reliable, all rubbers and hardware are new. It is perfect mating with brand new discs and pads, also I may order branded brake hose soon...

Why I'm going to R33 GTR Brembo brake kit, instead use GTST brake with uprate discs and pads?
R33 GTR brake much more larger brake disc diameter than GTST does. Here spec between different of GTST and GTR, beairng mind, both verison is part of R33.
GTST ~
Front Caliper Piston(diam x qty) - 40.4 × 4
Front rotors (diam x thk) - 296×30
Rear Caliper Piston(diam x qty) - 38.18 × 2
Rear Rotors (diam x thk) - 297×18

GTR ~
Front Caliper Piston(diam x qty) - 44 × 4
Front rotors (diam x thk) - 324 × 30
Rear Caliper Piston(diam x qty) - 40 × 2
Rear Rotors (diam x thk) - 300 × 22

I could be wrong about that informantion, you will easy noticeable GTR have larger brake than GTST, so it meaning larger brake = better brake performance and improve stopping power. Here the photo of progressing restores Brembo caliper, that front caliper.

Image

Meanwhile, I done other bits. Easy one.
Just, small exterior look changed...

Optional Front Grill, I'm like open grill style than fin, it look cooler but possible better cooling effectively.
Image

And, ganador mirror. Big fan since I was child, always wanted to fitting it, so my dream came true! It cheap used mirror, no carbon fibre and normal glass. There blue glass verison but more expensive, so same carbon fibre.
Image

How it look total of both of new parts, it look really good. I like it. :D

Stay tune for part 2!
