1995 Silver Series IV Slicktop Version S - Taking To Another Level


Recommended Posts

Took many items off my engine and have sent them to a metal polisher just a few miles from me and below are the results of his and my work :cool3:.

 

This is my aftermarket radiator bracket, it was or is stainless steel but now highly polished. The SLICKTOP plate was made by TwinTurboRich and I've had this powder coated and bolts on with some stainless steel allen capped nuts and bolts.

This is my Tokyo Auto cooling panel, original these come in silver or blue from z32-zone in Japan, mine was silver and the polisher told me it was anodized but now polished up as you can see. The logo was originally silver and riveted on, I drilled these out and had it powder coated, again bolted on using the same attractive stainless bolts.

Then the usual polished up water pipes, these will be used with red silicone hoses and mikalor t-clamps

Finally for this post, had my Altia sills polished, this removed many many scratches incurred from over the years, now I have a mirror finish.

Although this 95 is incredibly clean and we want it to stay this way, Jim has been underneath it, scrubbing, cleaning because he bought a Rust Buster Epoxy Kit in Silver Aluminium which is not far off

The intention on arriving at Jimmer's was to get a glass out respray on this 94, take parts from the 95 LWB donor such as the keyless system and the digital a/c but things haven't planned out that way

UPDATE :- After a long cv19 blamed delay, I am informed my new Work wheels are in the country. This post brings things up to present day, I have chosen this shape of quad exits and slash cut, I h

please remove them cap bolts on the Slicktop logo and get some countersunk machine screws..you know it makes sense:winkiss:

Really nice - I'm loving the Altia sills! Where can they be sourced from?

Power steering pot done :cool3:.

 

I'm going to colour in the lettering on the plastic cap as I've seen this done on Roobarb's car and is a nice little touch.

Bonnet prop of course.

When I got the driftworks camber arms I was told to do something with the mount brackets....so I did !!

Bought these off Baz, they are actually Tein pillow tension rods, the green paint on them was flaking away so I thought why not get them done !! I have bought some Tein decals to be put on when these get fitted.

These were just chrome painted from a rattle can but of course the finish isn't there and certainly didn't match the other chrome pipes........they do now !!!! Flanges are of course for my Blitz BOV's which have a polished finish anyway.

I've got blingyitus I know !!!

 

These are my brackets and brake stopper for the z32-zone Tokyo Auto strut brace with powder coated red badges :thumbup1:.

And then the strut bar itself, these were only ever available in blue or silver but I think this might look ok once fitted :tongue_smilie:.

Yes Steve, I am a little aroused you think of me in an evening !! I do know how about those indicators as my friend Ian Greenfield as a pair but I have no plans to fit one myself :biggrin:.

 

I will put up some arty shots of all these fitted, just needing now plenum, balance bar and rocker covers doing to match...please just bear with me but it'll all be done in say 12 weeks.

Lee Dent sent me up this S4 stuff and yesterday I was wire brushing, jet washing and just generally getting these in a better state for their next stage, done even more on the rocker covers today and now have these ready to be sent to the powder coaters, think I might go with a glossy red colour on them, was thinking of polishing but there are just too many nooks and crannies, then there is the upkeep :crying:.

 

The plenum will be flattened down and gunmetal powder coated.
