Hehe, I'm in need of some bucket seats. HLJ doesn't seem to sell them. Is there another place to get them from? OR If anyone would like to trade for parts?

Two set of rims without tires, Evo V (Fujimi) and R34 JGTC (Tamiya)
Integra Type R smoked windows and light covers (Fujimi)
Evo 4?5? Clear light covers (Fujimi)
And other small misc parts like steering wheels and Touring spolier supports
Some RX-7 (FC) and R33 N1 parts (Fujimi)
Impreza WRC circle lights insert (Tamiya)

I'm looking for atleast 2,3 bucket seats, if best Recaro style

I have a pair from the rally Evo 5 by Tamiya.

What wheels are the R34 JGTC? The white Calsonic car?

No, they are the extra wheels that came with the R34 Calsonic, I think they should be the Pennzoil version

Here is what I'm planning to do: Change the Revell ITR to the Initial D Turbo ITR (Yes, I'm Initial D crazy!)
Problems: US front bumper -> JDM conversion, 98spec rear bumper -> 96spec, Left hand drive -> Right hand drive, US seats -> bucket seats, US bonnet -> JDM Carbon Fiber, need JDM licencing, Spoon and Advan decals. The biggest problem is ths kit is in1/25 scale!!!!

I've decided that I'll just buy the Fujimi kit and leave the Revell alone. If you want the wheels, you can have them, but you live in England, right? Shipping will be a problem

I have the Pennzoil version! It's the Calsonic ones I want!
Ok, I suggest you get a kit for the spares box!

Have you done a search for Recaros on HLJ! I am sure I saw some!

Reji is from Czech Republic. Their seats are resin and include photoetched seat belt buckles, which I think is value for money. There are three seat designs to choose from but not Recaro or Sparco branded inspite of similar shapes.

I bought most of them from Hong Kong, so they were VERY cheap.. and I've been buying model kits from my local Hobby shop for ..hmm... 7 yrs or so now.. so the owner gives me (cost + 10%) deals... :)

and I almost ONLY buy special edition kits (eg: just tunning) kits that FOR SURE contain spare parts... so i always have a collection of spare parts.. (extra set of wheels, seats, spoilers, etc etc)

Even if they were cheap, that's still alot! I don't even have 10% of your stuff! I got some kits from HK too. Way cheaper than getting it here, and eariler too.

well, put it this way... some of those kits have been sitting in their boxes since they came out... (ie: Castrol Supra... 1995 was it?) :rolleyes:
