From there, they will install the front suspension crossmember F and its rubber bushings, the front sway bar, the steering rack, the inner and outer tie rods, the front steering knuckles, the upper and bottom suspension arms, the shock absorbers, and the sway bar front end link
They will also install the axle covers, the wheel hubs and their bearings, the ventilated brake disks, the brake pads and their calipers, the transfer case, the drive axles, the fuel tank and its pump, the mufflers and its pipes, the gearbox, and the large intercooler.
Afterwards, they will proceed to the engine stand to restore the car's engine. The GT-R R35 has a V6 engine, so players need to assemble it by scratch.
To do this, they must have the engine block, the crankshaft, the power steering pump, the pistons with their rings on, the fuel filter, the flywheel, the clutch plate, the clutch pressure plate, the clutch release bearing, the engine heads, the intake manifold B, the camshafts, the rocker arms, and the spark plugs.

Other parts needed for the engine include the oil pan, the crankshaft pulley and the idler rollers, the oil filter, the serpentine belt, and the belt tensioner. Once they are done building the engine, they will dismount it to the engine stand and proceed to mounting it inside the car.
From there, they will install the other parts, including a new fuse box, air filters, wheels, body parts, interior parts, and battery, as well as putting in a new oil, brake fluid, coolant fluid, and windshield wiper fluid.
Once they are done assembling the car, and giving it a custom paint job, they will do the necessary adjustments and tests. Once they are okay with the said adjustments and tests, they can take their GT-R R35 for a spin.
