Got a nice curve on the outer skin, just hope there's enough good material on the inner skin to weld the 2 together.

Test fitted overfenders, apparently from a mould taken direct from a GTR.

Still need, engine and box, some sort of interior, paintwork.....the list is endless just trying to do one bit at a time and not think too much about everything at once...

Boot finally arrived as the old one was a mess.
New standard GTR frp spoiler from ep racing.
Starting to look a bit like a skyline now.

Finally decided to go RB20DET with the engine. Seems sensible as it's the least work and most original for the car. Never been a massive fan of SR engines.

Ordered this low mileage one.

Just need a gearbox now....

Probably the best cost option too! Have you given any thoughts to the interior, putting anything back or leaving it?
Think I'm going to get an interior back in if I can.
Car came with loads of stuff.
I have all the seat belts, door cards, rear quarter cards. All the heater boxes.
This afternoons job is to fit all the heater boxes.
So makes sense to refit it all.
Also taken a gamble on a 4 door carpet to try and make fit.
I think I'm going to cut the cage out and remake the rear seat bodywork and find some standard seats.

Luckily all the dash wiring was left in and taped out the way. Saves some headache.

Looks like a lot of work there but think of the self pride when you turn it around to a stunning road car!
Good luck with the build.

Well that's half the roll cage removed. I cannot believe how hard mig weld is to grind through.

Heater boxes all cleaned up and new foam tape applied.

Cannot wait to start getting these in but still some roll cage to remove yet.

I'm in need of some help or inspiration, I don't know what to do about some seats.

The front member that the front of the front seats mount to has been removed.
The passenger floor bashed flat and some seat rails welded in.

I would prob be using a cobra, recaro aftermarket seat but would like them to be able to slide forward and back / be adjustable. But I guess most seat sunframes will mount to the original member which isnt there...

Thanks for any bright ideas.

Took a gamble on a cheap but nice condition 4 door carpet.

Seems to fit a treat.

Looks well and a nice fit.
Did you sort the seat issue? Could you take a cut from a breakers car?

It would be nice to put the member back in but I struggle to find good companies to deal with.
Half of them never answer emails or ring you back.

Bought a few bits off garage D. They seem to be the best for bits and service is good too.
