Mike Valencia's R32 GTR Build thread "Tanya"

Hello everyone, it's about time I start the build thread for my newly acquired 1990 Gun Metal Grey R32 Nissan Skyline GTR.

I found this car through Rivsu Imports, it was someone's personal car who worked for Rivsu so I got kinda lucky and got him to sell it to me. Anyways the car is pretty Mint condition and is very lightly modded just like I wanted, it has a slew of Nismo parts, Mines tuned ECU, cat back exhaust system etc etc, and to top it off it has only 79,320 miles! With working a/c too, I'm so thankful for it! I've waited a long time for this car to come into my life, ever since I was a kid, I knew one day that I would have one. And now that I have the privilege to finally own one I am soo honored and thankful for this opportunity to enjoy such an amazing piece of iconic Japanese history!

I've already paid for her and named her "Tanya", I figured since the car is already there and they have the original paint there in stock I might as well get them to paint match the un painted oem front lip and repair a small blemish on the fender as well. So I have to wait till that is finished before I can pay to have her transported here to Houston texas. Lookin like she will be here in about a week or two. I can't wait!!

Anyways Here are the pics of her:

Well she's out of the paint booth from getting the front lip paint matched to the rest of the car and had to fix a small ding on the fender. She'll be here in Houston on or before April 18th! =)
