My 240K(c110) build thread

I agree with Kent,

I have always used http://www.importmonster.com.au/yahoo and never had a problem, once you register, it can then estimate all the charges delivered to your door. It's generally pretty accurate, if its slightly out, it will either ask you to pay the extra, or refund into your import monster account if you've overpaid. Pretty quick delivery times too.

4 different sellers so there will be a fair few domestic shipping

costs, bank fees to cover the total order.

if the below looks ok let me know and I can shoot you a bill to cover

the cost of the bids/orders.

Rough costs on that would be something like this…

If shipped by EMS (shipping time 4-6 days)

Rough Total in JPY: ¥134,600

Rough TOTAL in AUD: $1,737 *depending on exchange rate.

For details please see below break down of costs.

Cost of item ¥104,570 <- 9 items

Ship item to me ¥5,000 <-4 sellers

Bank fee to pay seller ¥3,130 <-4 sellers

My commission ¥11,200 <-9 items/4 sellers

Shipping to Aus, NZ or US via EMS assuming 7.0 kg ¥10,700

* (I could be off with the weight but what ever it costs to send Ill

pass on to you)

Rough Total in JPY: ¥134,600

*If you would prefer to use PAYPAL: plus 4% paypal fees ¥139,991

Rough TOTAL in AUD (if paid by Bank Transfer): $1,737

*depending on exchange rate. current rate is 80.8

*NOTE: I get ~3.3 yen lower rate than the posted rate on the day when

I access my Australian account through the International ATM.

* DO NOT MAKE PAYMENT YET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS JUST A ROUGH

ESTIMATE, PLEASE DONT MAKE PAYMENT UNTIL IVE SENT YOU A PROPER

INVOICE!!.

Kent the photos everyone wants to see is the car with Watanabe's but im worried about wasting 2800 on wheels that dont fit right(16*8.5-6 +16*9.5-19), you can always bring yours over so i can trail fit LOL.:cool:

Also im in the middle of building a nice quad garage so i have room for some more projects :paranoid:

Hi Mate,

I would but they are absolutely buried at the moment.. if only i had a quad garage! :)

if i get to dig them out soon i will let you know.. i think i got 16*8 (0 offset) and 16x8.5(-6 offset).. atleast the rears are what your after :)

i really should get some tyres and throw the wat's on the Z..

I am going to be moving back over your way soon though.. which means more time to work on the car and much more time to come up and see the old girl and the awesome work you've done.. extra incentive to dig the wheels out!

Have you seen this

http://www.watanabe.com.au/attachments/File/Nissan_matching_data.pdf

I'm in the same boat, I have a month to decide if I'm going to spend a lot of money on wheels,

I was looking at F:16-80 ±0 R 16-85 -6, I did want to go 15s , but getting tires in a decent width would be a issue, 16 have a lot more to choose from

Yer i have seen this but then i went and looked at ben from Otomoto's car, we have similar mods and he has Rota RB 17x8.5 + 0 and 17x9.5 -19 using a 20mm spacer on the rear.

I have been thinking i may go 15s of late with a bigger width and offset rear.

Not really im waiting on parts. All of the bent SS trim is off being repaired should be finished mid july. Im hoping my parts will get shipped from japan this week so i can fit the motor and get back on track.

I have found that i also dont have any seat belts so add that too the list.

I'm curious on the fuel filler cover and air vent cover to convert to G.T.R spec, I've never seen those before, I've only seen the complete fuel filler or vent

cover for sale. Are they repos or original, and were they expensive? I'd need a set as well.

I the dash cover from rubbersoul, it cost around 7000yen

FYI its in the orginals section not the interior.

The fuel filler/air vent covers from Cityauto and are 9130yen

http://cityauto.ico.bz/exterior.html

Think the standard ones will need a little moding to fit these.

They are not scratched just have a plastic over them.
