OORP: This RP thread was original at on the old site, it have 5 posted in total. Thanks to JC, for give me link so I can access to my RP that I have written on it so I can copy and pasted into new site.
If you're required link to my RP thread at old site so here: http://archive.vstanced.com/forums.php?m=posts&q=4172

The rookie driver is on street.

Date: 1st October 2019

Firstly, just only a short introduction about me. My name is Jacob, some people call me Buzz or Buzzsaw. My current job is at the private performance shop, as I’m vehicle mechanic. My paycheck income use be every Monday, and I’m currently living in Tokyo, Japan. Born and raised in the UK but moved to japan I was a teenager, that why I have british name.

Anyway, let's move on to the main topic of the RP.
Since, I just passed my driving test and I have full license, so I can buy the car. I was stroll and look around the internet website, I found really clean example R33 GTST for good price. I have booked to test drive at tomorrow, so here website page that I found it. I bet you guy, would be a bit jealous or drooling.

This is 1998 Nissan Skyline (Known as ECR33 Series 2) GTS25T Type-M, bone stock vehicle. Clean example, and only 75k miles.
> Click > The Skyline sale page can be found here. < Click <
(I know it have automatic transmission, just pretend it that have manual transmission (because, R33 modder doesn't have automatic optional) and ignore ETC device)

Only 823,000 yen for that ECR33, which is transtate to rounded up to 7,624 V$, quite a good price for that Skyline with good condition, also it is low mileage. Hopeful, if it's good enough for me, I could ask seller to lower to 7,400 V$ between 7,500 V$. The car location is in Hyogo, Japan, which is it take me to 6 hours driving, and 4 hours on the train.

Finger cross, to see if it’s I bought it.
So the plan, if I bought it, arrive Hyogo by train and stay one night hotel then leave Hyogo by morning and I should arrive in Tokyo about afternoon or evening. I have paid train fade to Hyogo, it cost 150 V$, plus for hotel is 45 V$

My wallet;
Before price ~ 20,000 V$
Train fare ~ - 150 V$
One night hotel ~ - 45 V$
After total price ~ 19,806 V$

That's quite a decent R33, price suits the car very well indeed! Also bonus points since you' got it in purple. While it's not actually Midnight Purple, it's close enough :lol: What are your plans for it?

Did I bought vehicle?
Date: 4th October 2019

Remember the advert of lovely clean ECR33 GTST Type-M, about three days ago?
Did I bought it or not? Maybe car was shitty, or so good to drive? I dunno, what I am doing?!

Image

Yep, I bought it from advert, we agreed the final price is 7,500 V$. Now, I'm proud owner of ECR33 GTST. The nickname, I would call her is Purple Knight.
I was impression, she is 21 years old and runs like came out from dealership, however only bad side are suspension. They are bit softer but still function without problem, but I noticed front and passenger side shock absorber more bouncer than all rest of damper, I'm going to replace it to coilover set up in future. At moment, I haven't got the plan about my Purple Knight, but I always want to Purple Knight become Wangan Racer. I have planned about power wise, I'm not going to bother to tune around RB25DET, since I want more unique , and few people done it, you know what I am going to swap the engine. Yes, Purple Knight willing getting RB30 with RB26 head in the future, which meaning, I need kept focused suspension and brake upgrade before it will be ready for RB30 replacement. So, I'm likely going to change exterior, interior, suspension, brake and wheel, because I'm not going to wasting the money for power since I was planned swap the engine.

Anyway, the paint code is LP2, which mean it is Midnight Purple. Quite, not many have Midnight Purple GTST's around, and I arrived at my house yesterday, she was cover dirty and tars. I bought proper brand car shampoo, polisher, etc. Today, I given her deep cleaned, whole of around the vehicle, like engine bay, interior, and exterior. After six hours sweats, and very focused detailing Purple Knight, now she is looking way better. 21 years old paint has been perfectly restored. She look like straight out of dealership. I was impressed about my hard working detailing and polishing, and she look god damn so good. Also, I was amazed myself, she have barely rusts, basically she is rust-free, and I have seen common problem with corrison around front shock turrent, but not for my Purple Knight.

So, any modifeld that fitted, you asked me?
Yes, only one. It have NISMO front upper strut brace, that it. All rest is standard.

So, here the photo that I finish after six hours detailing, you should be impressed. :D

Image
Image

Image

So, that all, forks. Next mod, I going to replace all standard strut to coilover, maybe I'm going to change the wheels.
Oh, I spent my money for fuel plus meal before finish off my trip to Tokyo.

My wallet;
Before price ~ 19,806 V$
Purple Knight ~ - 7500 V$
Fuel + Meal ~ - 100 V$
Car cleaning kit ~ - 120 V$
After total price ~ 12,106 V$

Another dude with an R33!!!
Congratsss!
I suggest that the first mod needs to be a manual transmission, get a CD009! You can't go wrong with a 6 speed bulletproof transmission lol
Anyway, i hope that this project goes smooth like a knife in butter!
Keep it up

I'm not going worry too much about tranmission, since 6 speed tranmission likely going to other engine that I have planned.

Haha, thanks, mate. You just turn up perfect timing as I uploaded my RP.
The Mrs & Mr.
Date: 06 October 2019.

As you was May bit confused as my title, yes I am married man. My wife named Suki. I met her at school that I was first school after I moved into Japan. She been so helpful during, I was hell struggle. She just show up, and ask me nicely if she could help. I was happy accept her, and she made giving me good grade. I can't made finishing school without her, I was really lucky man. We been relationships nearly 6 years, and we started married last year.

The story, how Suki got her red E36 M3 has being...

Year ago, we went trip to Germany as our honeymoon, she was fan of German vehicle. BMW E36 M3 was her dream motor, My wife pointed out, stock red unloved E36 M3 for sale, that required lots of work. After, Germany holiday was finish, I did bought E36 M3, that my wife found it.

I bring to Japan, and store my friend garage so I could fix it and get inspection pass. My friend was amazed himself, and he thought I was crazy bought E36 M3 without my driving licensed. The unloved E36 required suspension check and head gasket need repair. I have done whole of head block cleaned up and whole of gasket and seal was replaced, done by machine shop, and I change head gasket and rocker cover gasket, and I replace rear shock (pair) and front lower control arm (pair), also it been 4 new tyres and wheel alignment, after I been sorted out with problem, and it been passed inspection without every single problem.

I covered E36 with car sheet. I was chats with her, and I give her final speech; "Babe, you been so big supported at school, I was struggle to do school work, because everything was new for me. I was worry, my grade could repeated, but you came and helped me about my grade struggle, and made new friends. You been putting big save of my problems. That why, I love you so much. I have gift for you."

Ski was pull off the car sheet off, and she was discovered Red E36 M3. She was cries happy, and left her speechless.
I give her key, and I said "You found that car at Germany, I bought it and I imported it to here and I repaired it. It is your."

She was smiles with joy of tears, and hugged at me. Me and her enter inside her car, and I was passenger. She been driven way to home. My wife said "My dream came true, and it was best thank you gift ever, I have it".

So, year has been passing to now. Here, how she is currently condition.
Recently, front pad and re-new brake fluid has been done.

Suki's 1995 BMW E36 M3.

Suki's 1995 BMW E36 specs.
Standard BMW 3.0 Litre Straight Six (240Bhp).
Scorpion Cat-back Exhuast system.
BBS LM rims with Continental Premium Contact 6 tyres (245/40 R18 all round).
H&R coilover.
Clear and red style rear light.
Clear side repeater.


Suki has paided for alloy wheel, same time cat back exhaust system about 4 months ago. I'm like her car to be truthful, I like how it style look, quite nice, classical sportly look. She use her daily, and she don't use to abused it, unlikely like it was common people abused BMW. That real M3, not faking one. Suki would hates it, if it fake M3. I thought, I could share my photo with her E36 and my Purple Knight combo. :D

I felt so good when our driveway fill of pre-2000's vehicle. I do like, my Purple Knight, just I love both vehicle. The crib has CCTV around, and both vehicle always locked up at our garage, so it should kept theft bastard stay away from our car.

That's a pretty cool M3, European examples are the most appreciated too! And a midnight purple GTS? Well it was a factory option only for the GTRs but it fits on yours just right, great for an OEM+ build.

Exterior getting dress up.
Date: 11/10/2019

I should be buying coilover, but I didn't...
I was distracted myself, and got my eyes about ECR33 opinional kit (front lip, side skirt and rear spat) base on primer coat, and front lip has been repaired the damage. I paid them kits and I given paint shop to match colour, abut 2 days after I given my opinional kit to paint shop, I found R33 sedan front grill without badge, great condition, so I bought it. Next day, the opinional kit has been finished painting so I collected opinional kit and front grill at two different a location in Tokyo. I been flidding body kit fitting into Purple Knight, corrected using glue to stick on car. It takes me while to getting right position, before adding the glue into car. I was impressed, how sedan front grill, and opinional kit bended with standard looks, very well. It just perfect for, since I wasn't going to crazy power planned yet, standard with opintal kit, just will be fine.

Today, Suki said to me: "Hey babe, look what I found" and she shown to me, I given her pat back. I replied: "Great find, that may perfect for Purple Knight". I chat with seller and I collect straight way before someone was going to collect it tomorrow. Guess what, she found it for Purple Knight? It custom axle-back tatanium, twin exit muffler, bit pricey but I kinda fell love it with style. :lol:

So, here result, I will close up photo and point out the part what I bought it.

Image
Sedan Front Grill
Opinional front lip

Image
Opinional side skirt

Image
Custom axle-back titanium, twin exit tip muffler.
Opinional Rear spat.

Final result, with fully view.
Image
Image

I paid opinional kit with respray is 500V$, and axle-back muffler ~ barely used is 300V$. Bit over-spending than I was expecting but at last it is worth it, I'm pretty love how she looks, the muffler made pretty great noise, not too loud and she been entered Ride of The Month contest, hopeful I won so I can bring more money. :lol:

My wallet;
Before price ~ 12,106 V$
Paycheck ~ + 415 V$
Opinional kit + Respray ~ - 500 V$
Muffler ~ - 250 V$
After total price ~ 11,771 V$

! Importion update news !

As, you may hear news went widespread, about Japan have been hit by Typhoon Hagibis hurricane at Eastern Japan. My area was affect (I'm living at Tokyo), I was told to evacuate it, as my own since my wife have family emergency, so she taken her E36 M3 and drive south and west (area wasn't affected by storm) last Thursday. Before I was evacuate, I did jacked up my Purple Knight highest on axle stand, I taken off the battery off and put at my room (upstair at my house) and covered by 4 layers of soft sheet then blue sheet on top and made really good archored point so sheet can't move, hoping she is protected from fallen object or flooded, and I packed myself ready to evacuate it before hurricane hit Tokyo. Notice: I was evacuated at 11 Oct 2019, after I upload Purple Knight exterior change.

As I'm currently still evacuate, and waiting I allowed to returned to home, my wife was so worry about me. She thought I was seriously hurt or killed, lucky I wasn't died :lol:. me and wife have good chatting each other, and sadly, I cannot to use my lived camera due power was cut, so I haven't 100% clue about condition of Purple Knight, I was pray, she is alright.

Here what is Hagibis path.
Image

So, sorry nothing about any my Purple Knight nor Suki's E36 M3 update, but just letting you know, I'm alright and what is happening. I may update other news about Purple Knight condition.

Well, actually I do not live in Tokyo now, I live in Chiba. And when there was a warning about the typhoon, I surrounded the gates with sandbags outside and inside. I bought gas, poured it into the generator and just waited! It's good that I sold Supra by then and I had 2 cars instead of 3! And after buying a BMW, I hid it with a friend in the garage. I was so scared to sit alone in the garage. Because this howl of wind and rain caused fear! But in principle, I'm alive, my family, too, so everything is OK!
And I'm also glad that everything is fine with you and your family! Waiting for news about cars!

Glad we're alive, however not good news for Purple Knight.
Hurricane aftermath.
Date: 15th October 2019


I was told, to can go home. About 10 mins later, as walking. I saw one guy open his garage, with packs of customer car and some of selling vehicle. I notice one of black 180SX that look clean and great condition, and he was noticed to me, while I was stare to 180sx. He said "Excuse me? You noticed black 180sx, do you?", I shake head and replied "Yes, of course sir." He told me, that 180SX are for sale, he was going to advertise tomorrow or Wednesday, I replied "Can I buying it early?" then he said "If you give me good price then I may accept the deal."

He explain about the 180SX; "I bought dirt cheap 180SX with blown CA18DET because previous owner did tune up too much boost on factory turbo set up. Replaced the engine to S15 SR20DET with 6 speed tranmission, all engine wiring now 100% S15 wires, with standard S15 ECU. Fixed, some other fault as well, and engine run like champion, also I been serviced it, everything fluids and filters are new that used NISSAN parts. She just finish polished up."

I given good inspected and quickly test drive, can't find anything faults. Fairly smooth and great runner. I ask him "Do you accept *deep breath* 8,000 V$?", he replied "Sound fair, mate." We shake the hand, and finish off the paperwork.

I drive to home, then I pull over and stopped at my driveway. I was godsmacked, the tree from my neighbour has fall down due strong wind, and crashing into my garage and destroyed my beloved Purple Knight and my garage. The tree landed on garage roof where it hit above of Purple Knight and crash downward and damaged Purple Knight's roof, underside, and other. It is mean Purple Knight and my house did not survive the big storm.

My hand is shaking then I being to tears, I walk to closer my garage and I knee. I started to cry and I said; "No, no! Not my beloved! That can't be!" and, my neighbour hold my shoulder then said "I think you are live this house, I'm your neighbour with that tree fallen. We could talk about insure damaged, also you notice, your house is sinked one side?"

I being to look him "Yes it is my house, My car was inside garage. She gone..." he was apologies about loss of my beloved then we chats about sorting out about tree fallen. I was amazed, I learn something new, my neighbour use be work foundation engineer, he told me, my foundation was very poor, case it made my home sinked one side. I was scared to call Suki bad news, and I told her to give me the address where your parent lived, and I would drive to there, meanwhile I'm heading to fuel station I was totally forgot to taking photo my 180SX, luckily I was remember it while stopped to grab fuel and drink, before I am going to leave fuel station...

So, I was quickly snap, because I need mostly my phone battery for sat nav used so I know where Suki's parent house (that where Suki was visiting it before hurricane happen).

More photos will be available next update, I promised. :)

I will to brief about 180SX spec;
100% runs and stock S15 SR20DET replacement.
HKS Hi-power cat back-exhaust.
Lexus style chrome rear light.
Type-X body kit.
Type-X alloy wheel.
H&R lowering spring.
MOMO Steering wheel.

Main I like that 180SX is;
1 - I'm big fan S13, S14, S15 chassis since I was child.
2 - That have black paint from factory, I haven't seen mostly S13 black paint around.
3 - DRIFT IT BOI! I promised, no drift or abuse.

You know what to order to respect my loss beloved Purple Knight nickname, I'm going to call her Black Warrior or Black Knight, not sure about it. :)
Sorry about lacking photo, I was stressed about from losing car and house, and I'm tired. Purple Knight insure will be sorted when I'm not tired.

My wallet;
Before price ~ 11,771 V$
Paycheck ~ + 470 V$
180SX ~ - 8,000 V$
Fuel + Drink ~ - 100 V$
After total price ~ 4,141 V$

OORP: I just started using GIMP software instead I'm use be Paint.net, the photo quality may different. I'm very noob about GIMP.

Meet, Black Warrior.
Date: 17th October 2019

Before, I'm going to introduction about Black Warrior, I have importion news about Purple Knight insurance, I have fitted optional kit on so her value would raise bit. They are final quote 8,000 V$ into my wallet for vehicle loss. That good news, just bang the buck same price what I'm paid Black Warrior. You may thinking; "Who fuck is Balck Warrior?", that nickname for my black 180SX. Like it for 180sx nick name? Anyway, time to introduction of Black Warrior, since she doesn't have proper introduction.

Black Warrior is known as 1991 Nissan 180SX Chuki version. Her bumpers was replaced to Type X style plus side skirt, and the alloy wheel was swapped to Type X wheel with Bridgestone front tyres and Firestone rear tyres. That vehicle has lowered used by H&R lower spring with factory shock absorber, which is myself not recommended it, because factory shock absorber wasn't design for lowering spring. The chassis has been slightly improved of stiffness, by fitting NISMO upper front and rear strut brace, as I can the condition been restored done. Rear light was lexus style look chrome, my view? I hate it, it just given ricer look, and I would replace it soon.

The interior, mostly still factory look, but steering wheel was replaced to MOMO with MOMO hub. The gear knob using by Vertex, to give bit shiny and colour for interior, quite I'm like it, and the radio wasn't no longer using old fashioned tape radio, and replaced to 2000's JVC radio, allowed for CD using, sadly no Bluetooth, no aux, how sad. The seat, only one driver side was swapped out to fake Bride seat, I can tell you that was fake seat. As you may noticed the cluster, it quite bit rare, it is using digital 100% everything worked, I'm amazed, they are work perfectly with replaced engine, which is I will telling you later.

Under hood, it was originally have 1.8 litre turbocharger known as CA18DET, but previous decision to boost it and ignored safety factory boost maximum and doing over-boosting abuse till con rod being thrown out therefore, blown CA18DET. That engine was replaced to SR20DET, that can be found from Silvia S15, with 5 speed tranmission from SR20 S14., which it mean it is running approved 250 bhp, big increases of horsepower from 166 BHP CA18DET, and the gear ratio was much more better and more suitable than CA18DET gearbox. The exhaust system mostly was standard S15, and cat back exhaust system was used by HKS Hi-Power, increase small of amount horsepower plus making good noise.

Image

That all of introduction of Black Warrrior, before I'm being to modifieding her, and my plan is kept her street-able daily, maybe round the track. I'm hoping, this winter I'm going to pulled engine out and rebuild it, make stronger and better than factory.

My wallet;
Before price ~ 4,141 V$
Purple Knight insurance recovered ~ + 8,000 V$
After total price ~ 12,141 V$

Returned of Tokyo.
Date: 19th October 2019

Damn, I'm so positive vibe right now! I'm born to ready to adding the power for Black Warrior, yes I am doing it. :D
I have booked to view beater motor and I'm going to look it and maybe I'm buying it, so you was thinking what is my plan to adding the power?

Once, I have beater. My plan is; Stripping front end so it allowed for me to remove the engine, and OEM rebuild it but make more reliable and stronger from bottom to top, make sure every piece of gasket and seal are new. Improve turbo spools, and cools. Replaced the clutch and lighten flywheel whist it was removed the engine. That it, all that I was worked out at my mind, I was hope it makes 300 between 400 BHP, nothing too crazy. I want kept good power figures while it still OEM bottom end, but I was thinking change camshaft. That plan however they may changed plan depends my budget, I need make sure suspension and brake is good enough.

So, it meaning I need bigger space garage to store parts and work spaces. I'm just returned from Tokyo and I found good garage space at industry site, it pretty good price. Good thing because, my mainly house was replaced to modern apartment near seaside, nice apartment ever I lived, with me and Suki, sadly it have only one car space garage, anyway at my new garage. it have everything, tools, ramp, welding, and car stuffs, basically I could do everything. My view, it good, but bad side is, it can be dirty easy on motor vehicle, like I said, it is industry site. I could move better site garage that make less dirty but they can be expensive so it better to wait my paycheck is raise enough to rent better one.

Stay tune at tomorrow for new beater car, hopeful!

Yes, that my goal, therefore I need bit homework about rocker arm, they are pretty fragility, many people having same problem when high power is applied. I need sort that before it happened.
