If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

Doug, This is for you

Well Doug as a previous owner of a few different R32's I was looking for something else and found this.

You might need these more than you think. Especially if your Skyline has some funky JDM minitape player.


That'll prove to be immensely helpful. I did the translation myself with help from a Japanese co-worker.

This is for your radio, if you do need to install a new one.

I was a member on Skyline Owners USA before their big take down. Apparently it's still up.

There's my 92 GTS-T. It's the only one that lasted the longest. Ironic, it started as a 200 dollar purchase to take to the track, it was the only one to survive.

Enjoy your purchase, treat it right and it will be nice.

If your car is HICAS equipped, rear axle based steering. Changes rear tires camber to rotate around turns, use a HICAS lock bar. Get a U shaped line and feed it back into the pump.


HICAS is for the track racers, it supposedly helps them. For the average person, just something that leaks P/S fluid everywhere.
