Also found one company that had the right kind of side decals for sale:


I have to confess that I bought them in white color
I thought they would go better with the white wheels and purple color than the silver ones...

4 more days before the big show and the car looks almost finished exterior-wise.






The painter did an amazing job with the paint job and the polishing.

beautiful car, Wikipedia is sayin only 44 out of 100 were ever produced due to production ending in 1998. There was an uncut nismo 400R key in poor condition that just sold last week on japan auctions for 151,000yen :O Very rare car

The surrounding part is carbon fiber, as well as the parts on the side of the headlights that guide air. Also the tunnel for the oil cooler in the left corner.

Took it out for a spin today, went to work and back and changed the engine oils while I was there.

Just a small video clip of a dirty car with my Iphone:

and

And while waiting for better quality photos from the show, here's a couple of mine I took the night before the show started:







The color looks much better outdoors IMO
