Hey,
been meaning to get this done a long time ago but aint got around to it.
Had my skyline for over a year now. It had 18inch ultralite atec wheels, an apexi induction kit and trust greddy exhaust. It had a dump valve but that came off.
This was her when i first got her


The front bumper was cracked quite badly on one side and a bad scuff mark on the other.



And the back bumper also had a bit off wear and tear marks on it.



There were no mods done to it yet leaving me a clean slate to start off with.



Since i've had it i got the bumper changed to a BN style one and got a front mount installed as well.



Got her resprayed to get rid of all the scuff marks as they were really starting to get to me.



Since then i've uprated the spark plugs and coilpacks along with getting a vipec ecu installed along with uprated fuel pump and a hks boost controller, the rocker covers have been painted red (will try and get a pic up).

Shes putting out 315bhp the last time she was on the dyno.

Have just been saving away the past while so am going to splash out again soon will post up here when i do.

Cheers Jonny

plan to get the engine bay prettied up a bit so prob some shiney stuff and new pipes and the like, gtr spoiler and also gona tidy up the interior maybe new seats and gauges.
Have heard that the silva seats came in leather on some and they fit straight into the skyline is this true?
but not sure on what else to do yet but am sure i'll get inspiration from somewhere.

so got home from work a little early today so decided to make most of the lack of rain and do some work to the skyline.

Took the front bumper off in preperation for getting the mesh put into it.



took off the metal support bumper thingy and gave it a clean up and paint.



then got the spolier off to make way for the new one.



and couldn't resist setting the new one on.



gona try and throw it out to get painted tomorrow before work and try and get some mesh so will keep yous updated!

cheers jonny
