You're spot on that, just looking at Arthur Tussik works on YT is really impressive. Skills ain't gained overnight.

Also you gain expirience out of project cars, as you work on 50's 60' 70's cars you see how much they detoriorate in those 50-60 years, you see how a design flow holds after 40 years and what it did to the body etc.

Awful and confirm my thought, the NISMO price tag isn't justified when you see that, I almost ordered a new set for my R32, I guess I'll keep the originals, reinforce and powder coat them and replace the bushings.

That's craftsmanship and they are doing it right, the kind of job and money you don't regret to pay when you see the outcome.

Can't wait to see if come together
Exactly and I've seen clowns asking me to give them mine to work on, one supposed to be trustworthy as he works on vintage cars already pulled off as he said "I can't deliver what you're asking me" because I'm exactly after what Toni is going through with AT.
