That build looks amazing mate. I need to do the exact same thing to mine. Been planning for a few months but no idea where to start.
Thank you, it's taken a while but getting there. I bought a GTR kit off ebay and i do NOT recommend it to anyone! lol

Another week gone and still no car.

Unfortunately, after all this time, it is still not complete. The petrol flap has not been completed after it was damaged last week during fitting. Once i get the car i will need to get this sorted elsewhere at my own expense.

I have asked for it to go back to the garage today so they can MOT it, fit spacers and new wheels.

My wife passed her driving test last week so the car i'd been driving was her which she has now taken back, so i am car-less :(

aww man, hope you get sorted soon.

Being car-less sucks, but at least she can be your taxi ;)

Any updates Ben?
Not really.

Been pulled from painters, was a bit of a sorry state :(

Currently back at the garage having everything put back together and finishing off. Hoping for an update tomorrow.

Items that need addressing:

1. Coolant needs to be checked and re-bled.
2. Power steering needs to be fully checked.
3. Idle control as it’s idling at 2000 rpm (possible air leak).
4. Refit the passenger door card and assess issue with electric windows.
5. Use Consult and check all live data on the car make sure everything is working as it should be.
6. Refit the door trims and rubber surrounds around the doors.
7. Clean and refit the boot trims.
8. Refit the front and rear wipers and front wiper scuttle panel.
9. Refit number plates.
10. Refit the washer jets and washer lines on bonnet.
11. Refit petrol cap. (still with painter being painted)
12. The car needs to be checked over for any other issues since leaving us and going for the body kit and painting

Quite a list then, I know its in a sorry state at the minute and it's such a shame the paintshop let you down. but I know you'll get it sorted in the end , and in all honesty the paint looks great in the rear end picture.

Hope you get it sorted soon.

Pics of how it is now looking from Friday. Couple of bits to re-fit. Full detail is going to be done to bring it back to spotless. Hoping it'll be finished for me to collect this week.

It has some parts i am not happy with so i will be hunting for items.

This has been a long and stressful experience for me. One i now know i will never repeat. I am hoping once i get the car i'll love it but this has left a sour taste in my mouth and i am considering getting rid as soon as. We shall see what happens!
