WELLCOME TO BOSNIA AND HERCEGOVINA!!!!!!


So as you all know me and @Lagano have arrived in Bosnia and Hercegovina (my birth place) 5 days ago to help my cousn to develop his shop.
He opened his shop right after new year but before he did he asked me for help due to spending all the money and the tools and equipment and his car ofc ge was broke to hire workers.

After a really really short chat with Lagano he said yes lets go build some cars and here we are few days later.

Both of us will upload photos of the cars that we build, the cars that we will be building are not our decidions these are pure customer requests.
I will stay here till April to help my cuz out dunno bout lagano but I know that there will be a huge meet in LA in april so wait for that one.

Now me and lagano are looking for a car to drive here as soon as we find something we will post but for now we will loan my cousns car sometimes and here is a story for it :

So my cuz was saving money for this car for a long time, he bought a 2008 E92 328Ci and then he started to add his touches to it.

The car is bone stock except some of the body work. It features a full Liberty Walk kit, a M3 GTS Rear bumper and a stock spoiler.
As far as the runing gear is concerned he did minor changes, he swapped out the stock shocks and springs for some more aggressive coilovers by Eibach and he teared up his wallet for those lovely Brixton Forged HS1 Circuit. The front rims are 18x10 while the rear are 19x11. Brakes were upgraded to 355mm Brembo 6 Piston calipers all over.

Now for the engine mods, the car is runing on a stock 2.8 engine with some minor mods like a new ECU and a new MAP, M3 GTS exhaust sistem from the headder to the bumper. The car also got a slightly bigger intake and a new sump. The car is runing 380HP which is actualy really good for a 80% bone stock car.

Enough of the talk here are some photos of it I hope you guys will enjoy and on that bombshell see ya all on the next update!!!!

Good Afternoon/Eavning mates......
Today is a lovely day and its a special day as well as today is the 17th January which marks the day of my birth.....
I had a lot of B Day wishes and a lot of presents but the one present that I need to share with you guys is the one that I decided to get for my self.

So as you all know me and @Lagano are in Bosnia helping my cousn's shop to start and since today is my B Day I decided to buy something.

The story starts way back on 3rd January when I was going trough some car trading sites and I came across a lovely 2009 Nissan GTR one owner car which originaly did 54 000 Miles, everything on the car is factory nothing has been modified on it and the car was maintained properly. The guy is about to get married and is planing on switching to a more family car. The was located in Minneapolis, New York.The car was a kind of a daily driver, but during the winter it was kept in a garage. At the time when I saw the add I had no intentions of buying yet another GTR but this morning everything changed......



Today I woke up had some coffee in front of the shop with Lagano and my Couz it was a bright sunny January morning and we were discousing all my old builds, all laganos old builds and the ones that we did together, and thats when Lagano mentioned my very first Nissan GT experience with the GTS Shell that I bought and installed the RB26 in it. It all started there 3 years ago with that build and after that the R33 came in 1 year later. Few months later the R34 GTT came and was built as an GTR.

While in that fuzzy good memory mood I heard how lagano said in a whispering voice "Why just not treat your self with that R35 you came across"


As he whispered it to me, I started to think more and more and more, should I wait for the perfect AMG or just get this GTR. I were banging my head on to the wall in the shop office untill I decided to go for that GTR, since I spent the past 3 years working on those cars and it should be good to have the whole evolution (Yes yes yes I know that the R35 is not a skyline but it is based on the R34's chassis thats why it has the code and similarity of lines).



While working an oil change on a car, and thinking about that R35, cause the price is way way way more money than I got on my account now. I got V$33K and the car costed V$43 000, the add said no low ballers so I decided to call even tho I have not got enough money for it.

The owner picked up the phone, by the voice he was a bit older then me, so I started to explain him my story and everything. I told him that I am not a prankster, lowballer or a scammer and that I wanna buy the car as my B Day present but I were low on cash so to see to make some kind of a deal.
Since he needs the money for his wedding it was difficult to give him 33k in cash right now and the rest to pay off monthly but then he said due to the car being my B Day present to my Self he would come down V$5000 due to him selling the car for V$43 000 for a big reason. The cars registration is almost expired, the engine needs to get a big service due to the close milage, so all of that will cost him a lot and he couldn't get the money back out of it that quickly for the wedding.
So now the price came down emediatly from 43K to 38K which still was 5k more than I had, I were sweating as a pig on the phone cause I didn't wanna lose the car, I didn't wanna insult the owner with the price, and I was a bit shy to loan some money.
At that point Lagano enters the office to check where I came with the oil change on the car cause the customer was allready in the shop to pick it up due to me telling him to be there at that time. I told the owner to wait a minute cause I am at work and I got a college in the office asking for one car, and thats when I told Lagano that I almost have an R35 GTR.
With a weird look on his face he asked me "Why do you almost have it, why don't you buy it", thats when I had to overcome my shame and say that I was short on the money. He said I will lend you some money but all the mods that we do on our E34 will go from your pocket, and I agreed on it plus after we finish the E34 we will count the mod cost and how much more do I owe him.



So thanks to my pall Lagano I again managed to get something that I really want and I appraciate his help and that he is allways there for me cause I am allways there for him if he needs me.

As said on the start of this big novele, the car is bone stock no mods everything on the car is same as in 09 when it left the factory.



The interior is intact, well maintaned, no cracks or any other kind of damage,




Again thanks to everyone for all the support I am getting, a big shoutout to @Lagano,Soju,BigSmoke, RocketBunnyS13,Niatross,MACKAY,macaron_moon and 11000RPM, please take a moment and check their RP's links will be down :

Hello Everyone,

Today I got a phone call from my friend JoJo aka Soju xD

He called me and lagano so that he could tell me Happy B Day and we were chatting and he though that we were still in the USA.

The second reason he called me was cause he bought me a BDay present via online auction.

As I told him how I look for cars for track in the States he started to check some sites and found a 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 which was 100% burnt to crisp.
He bid for it V$100 and as it happened he was the only bidder for it, as far as delivery adress he wrote my info and he said for me to wait for a call from.

So I went on google found the page, called the auction house to see for the delivery due to me beeing in bosnia till april.

The auction house told me that they will send me a PDF file which I will need to print out, sign , scan and send to them and from that moment on I will be the owner of the Vehicle.

So after I did all of that I got a VOIP call from the Auction house and had an hour talk with them while they explained me everything about the car, and here are some details in short :


After that the real conversation started, I was told that the owner of the car did just 23 000 miles with it and one night a fire happened and the car has burnt.

The insurance claim were requested and the owner got a new set of rims tires and he even managed to rebuild the engine in the meantime.
When the Insurance house finaly arrived to pick up the car and to grant him a brand new vehicle of his choice till a certain amount of money.
Then the Insurance house noticed the parts that are missing from the car and were originaly written to be there.
He had to put the engine back in and the rims so that he could get his new vehicle.

I was told that the engine is comming in a separate crate, and that the car is comming without it.

Here are some photos of the car and if you are interested in the engine please PRESS HERE .

Thank you Soju for the BDay present, when you come to visit me in April we will start working on it..... I have a mean plan for this car....

Hey man, R33, R34 and now R35? You've completed the R-series chain! :thumbsup:
Only R32 left to go (you might want to extend to R31 and R30 if you want) and you're officially king of the R :thumbsup:
Even a light tuning on it would make me excited :D

Yoooooooooooooo

Long time no news but here is one build that we made in the shop......

This car took us 1 month of intensive hard work with 70% of overtime work and we are still far from done......

So prepare for a long story


There is a lot of people here in bosnia that leave everything behind them and go to foreign countries to work to sustain there families and this is one of those cases. This guy left Bosnia in 2005 to go work in Afghanistan and went trough a lot to achive what he has now..... When he left he was 22 Years old and he left his parents and siblings behind.
Before he went to afghanistan his father and him worked part time at neighbours and some private tirany companies in bosnia and bought a 1985 BMW E30 320i to use as a daily horse.

So now 15 years later he returned from Afghanistan and has achived a lot for him self and his family, but there is one thing which he forgot and that was a car...... He didn't want to buy a newer car he wanted to rebuild that E30 and thats when he heard about this shop and payed a visit with his car.....







He told us his story and said the following : "I do not want a new car, I do not want anything else except this car please can you rebuild it I know its a really long way from decent but please its my first and last car"
How can you say no to that no matter the condition of the vehicle, but we told him that we can not give him an accurate price cause there is a tone of work and that we would call him when we take the car apart to come over see the car for it self and discuss the price....







While in bosnia he did a lot of cheap addon mods to the car like the trunk clips and M3 badge etc.....
When we talked about the style and the way he wants it to look we were told that he loved the way that car behaves and that he wishes to feel the E30 M3 Sport Evo but since that car is way too expencive for him he wants to build the car like it. We told him that we are not replicating cars like that and will never do stuff like that, we can do custom work but we will not replicate any car......
So after a while we decided that we will Widen the car just like the SE E30 is, then add the S54 out of a E46 M3 to get him the power since this engine is a lot newer than the old E30 M3 power plant. We will give him racing susspension to give him a nice and accurate feel, then some nice exhaust system which we are getting custom built at a exhaust genius called "Dugonja". He is a local exhaust expert and there is nobody close to his skills in whole bosnia....







The interior is in pretty decent condition but it is going out since he wants the sporty feel, so if somebody is interested in it PM me or Lagano for price etc...
We took the car apart, saw the condition of the car, called the owner and we had a really really long chat (5h) since the car was in a terrible condition but we took the work and he gave the approval to go for it no matter the cost.........


So here we are 30 days later..........

We took the car apart and realised that the chassis is rotten as s**t, crash damages, fire damage and so on and so on....

The chassis got dipped and then the fun started, from 15th January till 3rd February we were fixing the chassis and we managed to get it straight and clean....Lagano's body work skills improved drasticly since we were working back in 2016 and I am happy for him.....

Right after that we went on making custom overfenders to make the car nice and wide but Lagano suggested to actually pull out the original rear quater pannels 1-1/2IN and then to get the owerfenders on it and so we did.....

On the 7th Feb we were painting every single spot of the chassis and protected it so no more rust hits it ever.
To protect the car from rust we used a car hoist to lift the car and then sprayed the whole car from underneath with bedliner and then from inside as well and after all that we primared the top of the car and started laying some color.

Yestrday all 4 of us jumped on the and installed the whole susspension, and we managed to mounted the engine.

We took some photos of it outside for this update and now we will get back working on the car, we still have 90% of the car to install.

P.S.

Lagano finished installing the wires today and placed the isolation inside but we didn't make the photos but more updates soon.....

Stay tunned and enjoy the photos of the car
