Hey peeps, just bought a yellow gtr32 with 76,000km, but the bodyworks not the best and the interior needs sorting as does the engine bat as its a tad dirty lol.. mechanicly tho shes perfect and not missing a beat :)... Sooooo the plans...

Iv just finished sanding down the whole car ready for a full respray, and flushed in the boot lock, re-hung the skirts and bumpers, going to modify the front grill, and also noticed the front intercooler is HUGE!! so thats not standard lol WOOHOO!!..

Need to sort the front bumper a bit because its not the best fir with the intercooler and its been done in a rush so looks not very good, prob fill with mesh once fitted right..

Erm interiors ok apart from the seats, no *** burns but a bit squashed in places n just looks dirty.. Will repaint all the interior plastics austic bitsnd tidy everything up with a full internal valet n clean.

Engine bay will be mirror polished to hell lol.. already removed the turbo elbow and airbox to polish but im planning on doing alot more.. ie the rocker cover and manifold along with a few other items :) a full degrease once most of its removed and repaint any tatty/rusty bits.. car will be totally tranformed hopefully within a few weeks.. fancyed fittin a bodykit but havnt seen many 32 kits about..

Also will be painting the wheels black with black window tints against the yellow body :boogy:

Well i`ll take plenty of pictures as i go :)

cheers

ok few updates...

Removed the front bumper and the intercooler as i want to polish it up and found out its a blitz intercooler.. :) nice surprise that was lol..

Also degreased the engine bay around 5 times today so just about every little bit of crap has been removed.. i`ll redo it again but with a small brush and sort all the hard to reach bits :S

I`ll sort the front bumper tomoz and fit some gill i reckon, also rehang so it fits alot better :)

There's gonna be some evo's and some sx's from the SXOC, but it's mainly Skylines. We had the first one a few weeks ago and it was excellent. All Skylines, and one Cefiro. There's a thread in the Scottish section, if you're interested in checking out the details.
