My first Skyline :)

Hi all.

So i bought my skyline about 4 months ago, since then i have wracked my old noodle as to what to do, i decided to do a gradual resoration/build to get a good foot on the look so to speak.

But all in all im looking to mod the following and hopefully in this order....

Int - Strip old crappy cloth out and reupholster
Int - Uprate the dash and all interior lighting
Int - Sort out all the plastic / Respray

Ext - Fix all dents and scratches and restore body work
Ext - Repair all rust on both rear arches
Ext - New plastic moulds for front vented wings
Ext - New GTR Spoiler
Ext - Uprate all lighting
Ext - Underseal the car
Ext - Get some smoke tints (suttle ones)
Ext - Carbon bonnet hehe <------ the child inside me

Then once this is all done i will totally sort engine/brakes/suspension etc thats last tho....

I will upload photos of progression so far when i get home

Enjoy the thread and let me know what ya think

I need to get another set of spacers for the back wheels to sort them out, I know its not much but the car is in the shop now, and im hoping my carbon bonnet turns up soon, the new vented front wings go on soon, along with the GTR spoiler .....

Hope u enjoy and thanks for reading

I like mate interior is nice .
Just tip if you click image link on photobucket the one at bottom when hovering over picture it will copy it and when writing a post just right click and paste the link , that make pictures visable without having to click link.

That interior looks to have a really professional finish. I'd love to get my interior overhauled similar to that. I'm sure it's not cheap tho . Did you get the gear gaiter / handbrake gaiter & armrest done at the same time?
