The White Car : Unbuilding an R34 GT-R Super Taikyu


After the first test, the plan was to use a crew chief, and prep shop in Wisconsin to help us out with the car.  During 2005, the car went out to a few events, a couple of SEMA shows, and a couple of time attack events. I will eventually post up a couple of pictures from the 2005 events and some results.
Time Attack at Buttonwillow

Right after the time attack, the plan was to strip the car down to check it out, get it repainted, and build it up to World Challenge specifications. Most of the pictures are from my camera phone, so the quality is not the best.

We did an ad for NOS Energy drink.
For the NOS ad, we just hung everything in place, tossed in a seat, and did some shots with the bare chassis.
Loaded up, headed to K&W Autobody
Just looking at the pictures, really doesn't show how much work, or how many parts you have when you take a car down to what I call "parade rest".  Now the white car was ready to be built up to World Challenge specs.

  3. I like more simple. I think it is too busy. I really don't dig the rainbow colors and the birds. They don't do anything for me.
