I'm doing a few things different with the style of the body work but one of the main reasons is i'll be re moulding all the body parts and then making them in carbon as the rear quaters are steel and the rest of the body parts are fibre glass at the moment.

As there's still loads of work to do i still won't be ready for a long time but if you'd like to see some skyline racing in the same series have a look at the dates for the Dunlop motorsport news saloon series, if i'm lucky i might be out next year



Paul

Thanks for the offer mate but in the Dunlop series there's not many parts you can't change but the roof is one of them.

The Tca's have been dummy fitted to test the geometry of the car so still not quite sitting on some rubber but getting close

She should site rearly nice when at the final ride height.

I've done some prep work on the rear quaters to get them ready for moulding, but havn't got the time to do any work on my own car at the moment as i'm to busy working on someone elses

Not at the moment dave I should have the car back a week after easter so i'll get some pics up soon.

The next step is to get her back to mine and mould the rear quaters then it'll be going for some more fabrication work here's a list of jobs what needs doing next. Every time i make a list they don't seem to get shorter

Fuel cell mounting, dry sump tank supports, header tank supports, rear wing supports, front splitter supports, radiator supports, intercooler and oil cooler end tanks and supports, intercooler pipework with wiggins connectors, radiator solid pipe and wiggins connectors, gearbox support, sump modifications, fuel filler neck, mounting peddle box, steering column and support.

Roll on the next stage

The time has come for me to pick up my car. At Last!

I'll post up some pics over the weekend of the finished suspension arm's etc, etc.

I'm going to keep hold of her for a week so i can mould the rear quaters, then she's going to the next fabricators who hopefully will get the next stage completed fairly quickly, but looking forward to seeing her come together and start looking like a car again.

Cheers Lee and GT-R Glenn very please to have her back even if it's only a short time.

I have a list as long as my arm for the next stage of fabrication but they are smaller and more straight forward jobs than what's just been done so hopfully will be have her back in a month or so, i'll keep the pics comming as the jobs get done.
