New Alto Works owner
Ive been lurking for a while just reading threads but wanted to say hi. Name is Scott, I have a few cars including a R32 GTR currently being restored. I always had a soft spot for Kei cars, starting with the TRXX but I have just bought a 1999 Alto Works RSZ from Japan.
On its way now... a few pics:
So, just saying hello.
Looks smart, I know what the wait is like as we imported some cars from Japan.
The waiting for the car itself and also then waiting for the paperwork to register it, is a pain in the backside (>_<)
But should be worth it when it's all done
Hah, yeah. I'm imported a few times before but this feels like an age
I;ve had a rethink on plans and decided:
1. Manual Boost controller at 1 bar inc gauge
2. Apexi Panel filter
3. HKS Bov (not normally my style at all, but a bit of fun)
I'll leave it at that for upgrades and enjoy the car for a while before considering whats next. Of course I will ensure its all serviced etc and everything in good order. I had been looking at the Link Atom ecu etc but I decided to go with a cheap boost first and enjoy.
Sensible mods, should be plenty fun! Any pics of your bnr32? I used to own a rare blue r32 gtr when I still lived in the Netherlands, drove it in Japan before importing, remember that was quite a long wait.. Miss it dearly and now I drive a slow hybrid... Maybe one day I'll get one again but prices are only going up now that the US can import them. What import service are you using if I may ask?
Yeah I think its a good start
The r32 is very much a rebuild, not many pics but it was sitting for over 5 years with a dead engine. Now looking a bit better Lots of new bits, full bare respray etc. Getting there.
Started in a bad way:
But getting better
Everything rebuilt or new. Currently just had the box and clutch put in, now onto top engine stuff. Cant wait, its been nearly 2 years
