Was looking forward to seeing the yellow, but GTRs do look sexy as fook in black.
Quite strange actually as ive just changed my GTS-T from black to Kawasaki Green!! Still needing shed loads of finishing though.
Looking good m8, Keep up the good work!

How much faffing is it to get the doors and trims off? Mine is almost at the masking stage now and debating whether or not to take the wings and doors off. The hard plastic trim around the screen edge of the doors looks quite breakable?

doors are just 4 12mm bolts and unplug the wire running through the door, thats it, the wings are just 8 10mm bolts i think.. easy peasy... im replacing my front n rear window seals so i just ripped all mine off and cut away as must as poss for painting..

On a update the whole passenger side has been painted :) guna do the whole car as a first coat, sand down and paint the full thing a few times to get everything 100% then a few heavy coats of clear and we all done lol

small update n u guess whats missing? lol riped all the aircon out today as that rad rely restricts the airflow to the radiator.. also im thinking of removing the a/c fan but thought it would work well as a addictional fan with the ac switch turning it on.. good fer summer traffic :D horns getting repositioned too.. needs a damm good cleaning!!:slap:

Getting myself a massive flamer heater as its a tad cold n theres too much condensation buildup on the car.. arrives friday and i cn finish painting the shell..:boogy:
