Customer Car: Zac’s 2012 GT-R, Complete In-Progress Build by GT-RR

GT-RR complete car build - Zac's 2012 GT-R

One of our greatest joys is taking on complete car conceptualization and managing builds.  We tap our networks to select the best partners for each aspect of the car build.  We extensively consult with our clients to determine the very best possible parts to meet their goals.  On the blog and in the Facebook gallery, we will be updating the in-progress photos of our client Zac’s incredible GT-R build.  Zac’s car is aggressively modified but done so in his own style, which is classy and somewhat understated compared to many of the other wild builds.  What defines Zac’s build is the extreme quality and attention to detail.  You’ll get a better feeling for this as the build unfolds.

Bulletproof’s 11th Anniversary Meet Recap

Posted by

Some of you may remember that Bulletproof had our 11th Anniversary meet this past October 15th; some of you were even there!  We had fifteen Bulletproof Select Showcase cars on display.  The Bulletproof Select stickers were designed by our GT-R specialist, Kris.  Great job, Kris – love the Option font.

Here’s the Bulletproof Select line-up.  We were lucky to have extensive coverage of the meet by William Lee of Night-Import, as well as additional photos by James Younger and David Izrailov.


Check out all the carbon on that DreamzSport NSX.  This thing caused quite a stir when it rumbled into the lot – full carbon fiber widebody, built motor with twin turbos, Brembo racing brake system, and finished off with some one-off vinyl graphics by the world famous Mana-P of MS-R Japan.

Jon’s Evo with full Varis kit and Jason’s Evo, flurry of 370Z and 350Zs leaving the lot, including Andrew’s 370Z with full Powerhouse Amuse kit on Volk TE37SLs.


CR-Z with Mugen MF10s and Spoon BBK, our R35 demo car.

2012 R35 with brand_RR front lip and Esprit dry carbon wing, and more R35s galore!

When this guy rolled in, all eyes were on him – you could tell that everyone knew and respected the lineage behind this hakosuka GT-R.

I think that reaction perfectly demonstrates the high-level of rides and owners who were at our event.   The day was all about quality; you could tell that by the cars that showed up.  But more importantly, the quality of the attendees was top-notch.  There was no tension between different crews or drama.  Everyone was just there to have a good time.


Thanks to Night-Import for covering the meet, K1 for allowing us to take over their parking lot, Phamish for providing the tasty banh mi, and everyone who came out to enjoy all of the above!

For more photos and coverage of the event, check out our Facebook album and the post over on Night Import.

brand_RR Headlights x GT-RR 2012 Demo Car

Here are the brand_RR custom dual HID headlights on our 2012.  The OEM headlights were not that bright at night so we added a second HID Bi-Xenon projector to increase visibility. The custom painting is just icing on the cake, but we’re still keeping the orange accents minimal.
