What are these ventilation outlets in the dash? They look really good in there.

I believe they are 350Z, the internet says they just pop in place... maybe the OP can verify.

Hi Gents,

Thank you for the compliments regarding the build. I was going for a slightly understated look so as to not to attract any unwanted attention from the police down here. Having said that I like purposeful modifications and functional additions opposed to things like, blinged out engine bays. That is why I blacked out engine bay whilst detailing as much as possible. Compared to the US and Canada, I think our licensing requirements are pretty strict when it comes to modified cars which was another issue.

The dash vents are from a Nissan s15 Silvia. Pretty easy to fit, unfortunately it’s not something I documented during the build. As it is pretty straight forward.

Work computer is down so it gives me an opportunity to do an update! Not sure if these wheels will be my final choice but at this stage they will get me through the engineering and licensing requirements. As you can see, they are definitely grandma spec on the rear. So I've contact a friend in Japan to try and help me out with some wider GTR rims.
what are those wheels and specs for them please , they look great

The original rims used on the car are r32 gist rims, 16x6.5 +40. They are straight bolt up, i.e on spacers required. I’ve since moved on to a set of Works rims.
