    Awhile ago I printed this for my HKS Turbo timer with one of our printers at work. And recently got around to fixing it to my vent surround/ under steering wheel trim piece for my R32.









    Here is a quick mock up for my Boost/ Water temp gauge holders I made recently. I most likely will make the holder one piece when i produce it out of aluminum.

    Hokey So, made the trek to my parents house over the weekend to get things ready for it to my to my friends (autobody mechanic) for some dent repair and a new rad support. While I cleaned the engine bay and removed the 20yr old dried out wiring harness mounts most of the weekend was spent putting my interior back together.

    As i am an industrial designer by trade, I tend to over think small details like this. I was really against drilling into the dash to mount my gauges because i think its tacky. The option of mounting them in the A pillar was out too because It looks even worse (my opinion) and its annoying to constantly have bright lights in my field of vision.

    A few months ago I prototyped this column mount pod on our 3d Printer. I liked the way it fit in the car and was made the gauges easy to read without being distracting.



    Was able to buzz a couple out on our new CNC Router Machine with some scrap textured polycarbonate we had lying around



    Went to Home Depot and picked up some "L" Corner Brackets and mocked everything up with an older broken gauge I had kicking around the shed.



    Here are the finished products:

    Two 60 mm Gauges on the column (boost and water temp) and 3 42mm Gauges in the center "Din" pocket. (Oil temp, Oil Pressure, Exhaust Temp.)





    I also Mounted the Turbo timer I made up last week:





    I am absolutely stoked on how the gauges look. From the drivers seat it gives the feeling of a fighter jet

    More updates to come, Thanks for Reading

    Its been a busy couple of weeks.



    I left the car is the above depressive state last time I worked on it. I had removed the old bent rad support and picked up a fresh (used) one from a local importers. My good friend from highschool, who is a bodyman by trade agreed to help with the re-assembly as i had no idea what i was doing. Turned out it was pretty straight forward ( Drill out old spot welds, clamp in place and weld it up. )



    Here it is clamped up



    Welded it up



    and hood fenders re-installed.

    It was a huge motivator having it looking like a car again.



    Ugly dent in the front driver side corner fixed and primed



    Uglier dent in the passenger rear quarter fixed and primed.

    Paint tonight, cant wait

    this came in to work on friday. I had requested a sample set of circular Tyco connectors for a "prototype" and this showed up.



    Eventual plans are to re-locate the battery and fuse boxes in the rear seat delete, neaten up/ simplify the wiring a bit and run a quick connect for the motor harness.



    Removed the rear seats to start the rear seat delete

    more to come

    FINALLY got my car to my house and have been busy doing many little things here and there. I bought a rust free non hicas S13 subframe and have begun the awful task of replacing all the bushings with Polyurathane units from Energy Suspension. I eventually plan on getting all adjustable arms but dont have to resources at the moment so stock arms with new bushings will suffice for now.

    The rear dent came out better than I thought. So happy to have the car dent free.



    and with a new R32 Rad Support



    Dont mind the empty bay, Ive been plugging away at the motor as well, Maintenance things such as new gaskets, seals, thermostat and press in -10 fittings for my catch can setup. Just need to order up a new waterpump and i'm good to go.



    Going to keep it pretty standard for now and upgrade turbo and injectors later down the road.

    I also stripped off the brown paint from the cam covers as it wouldn't cut it for a super 90's build. Instead I made some decals in adobe Illustrator and had them cut in low tack vinyl



    I spent about a week making sure the paint cured properly in between the different layers. I am absolutely stoked with the outcome.
    I did it one at a time incase it didnt work out, but will post a picture of them on the motor as soon as it has cured.



    (sorry for the Iphone pic)



    Quick Snap of the interior/ Gauge Setup

    Put the aero back on my car to boost motivation.



    It just needs a motor in to get rid of the ugly rear rake.

    Got the day off tomorrow for more painting and rear subframe work. Before I go heres some more 3d printer pron



    Cheers
