It was a lucky chance, I knew l wouldn’t get another one.

Will you be leaving the underside like that or will you be applying anything to avoid stone chips damaging the finish?

The metal used was of poor quality as was always with the datsuns, together with the fact the metal on the r34 Gtr was even thinner to offset the extra weight the BNR34 came off the production line with. Also rust preventatives manufacturers normally put on like Toyota for example, Nissan didn’t do, maybe to save further weight.

So Bought a spare mint low mileage import M-spec Gtr shell should l need it in the future, no show queen here, will be using it to its fullest for the moment until, if or when, the final resto commences.


Jesus you must really trust your neighbours!

My God this has me speechless!

That restoration is nothing short of beautiful Toni, can't imagine how good it must feel to see this kind of progress on your car.

Just went onto AT's insta, hat's off to you and to AutoTorque for the amazing work.

More pictures please Toni!!!

The difference between someone who thinks they know what they are doing and someone who knows what they are doing is massive. Often looks the same but you can tell this is something special. Shame others aren't as particular.

Can't wait to see if come together

Don't know what this is costing you Toni, but even a tight Yorkshire man like me would be happy to pay for quality like this, stunning work.
