    No real updates been majorly waiting on parts which sucks massively.

    However had a few bits painted while been waiting, a bit different to whats normally done, Rear s14 subframe, front subframe and tension rod brackets all been undersealed and then painted over. has a textured finish but seems like it will be super durable.

    had the GTR Diff and DW solid diff bushes fitted up also.



    Tension rod brackets with bracing painted...



    Rear subframe with bracing now attached and painted

    Those brakes are very good but are you using the s13/skyline style drum handbrake mechanism? Only the ones I've seen that use the calliper mounted handbrake are not strong enough to hold the weight of an sx parked. Had a friend with them a while ago now and his car failed MoT as they do not have enough breaking effort to pass that either.

    It's a shame as they work really well on track.

    Having ogled lots of build threads, this is definitely one of the most impressive I have seen. Well done!

    M.D - I have stripped the handbrake mech of both s13 and wilwood as im 99% sure this car will never see the road again, do u mean just for MOT and usual handbrake use there weak? I only need them to lock up the rears on the hydro so i hope they will be ok..? what do you think?

    Whoop! Another member of team 12J lol.
    What spec are your rears? I just fitted 18x12-7. Needed kouguchi +70mm wings and 275/35 tires to get them even close to fitting.
