Ok bit of news to add, I have bought another shell and this new one will become my Road/Show car with Rose becoming the Track/Drift car I always wanted to do.

So some of you will know who I got this shell from from the photos, its a R32 GTS-4 with GTR conversion and is Ashley's old car. I will be sorting out getting it picked up for the end of Jan so fingers crossed should have it on the road for the summer if all goes well.

Here are a few photos of the shell and when it was a complete car.

Just stripping her down Andy going to have to do a full respray as the paint work although looks amazing has not been done right it just flakes off if you scrape it with even a blut item, which is a pity as its more work but I have nearly finished stripping the shell bare of everything so will be rubbing down and painting soon then subframes etc will all get a lick of paint while off.

Here are a couple of videos showing the paint flaking off.

Video 1
Video 2

some photos of me stripping everything off the car, so seats and full wiring will be out, engine bay complete strip, subframes the lot to a bare shell.




new stand work well......lol

you got lack of inter coat adhesion due to bad prep is it on the whole car or just on the body kit
just the kit as far as i can see but the rest of the car has scratches and chips so going to re spray the whole car as it will be easier to make my own mix up and it will all look the same :).
