hi bud , on my last car i brushed the paint on and it came out quite good.
the paint i use is hamerite smooth paint as it leaves a smooth finish when dryed...

wots happening

A small up date, have now managed to get hold of the front inner wheel arch linners,took a while as JDM had to get them from nissan so took a litlle longer than expected.

Next up is front spliter now i wasnt to sure if i was going to repair it or get a new 1, but since i had a look at when trying to secure it beter i found it had already been repaired b4 ,not a big deal , but i ended up makeing a small crack a lot bigger so, have orderd a new nismo style 1, and should have that tomorrow.

managed to get all the stereo done aswell with din pocket and relocated ipod lead to under arm rest, although did find out whilst changeing headunits that my left side front speaker is fooked so there now on the list of things to do lol.

have managed to get hold of a oem gtr spolier today again from jdm,so will have to wait for that to arive.

So the plan is as follows ? This weekend get car down to my works, work shop. fit new spliter if it arrives?. fit inner arch linners. remove wheels and paint my brake calipers.

fit gtr spolier when it arrives, then its of to a friend to get the paint work redone, paint work is not tha good in places and not that thick in places,messuers any were from 98 microns to 5o microns ,so needs a few layers of paint on it plus it will freshen it all back up.

will post pics up at the weekend...
