Godzilla is real

collected her on monday rained all the way home but didnt care.
utterly fantastic car to drive as you all probably know.
7000 miles cobb installed.
drove her all day tuesday as well better weather was brill.
cant believe how many people stop and stare at you even had people pulling up along side and videoing on their iphones lol.
got the normal noises from the gearbox but dont really bother me.
just need a bit of time to give her a good clean and detail.
roll on next week when im back in the seat.
GODZILLA lives on

You are not kidding

Changing lanes on the M11 this morning, I saw my life flashing before me.

Half used Bridgies, track geometry, standing water and tarnac tramlines made for several near death lane changing experiences.

Even on brand new rubber, the tyres have so little tread, wet weather driving is interesting to say the least. You also don't have the benefit of 4wd if the steering angle exceeds 15 degrees so fast exits from wet roundabouts tend to make you wonder where all the so called technology has disappeared. These cars do not drive themselves.

It can be pretty hairy when you're still getting used to the car. Standing water is the most dangerous situation I've found.

Once you're more confident then you can push it more, but caution is definitely advised. Semi slicks and 400+ ft/lb torque = sideways on request

You are right mate they look great in every colour. But when detailed the red looks stunning to me. Here's a pic of mine after it's first proper clean.

Yeah mate, did her myself. The paint was in a bit of a poor state from bad washing technique. I would have paid for someone to do it but I get a lot of satisfaction from doing it myself and it's a great way to gel with the car.

Here's a link to my thread

https://www.gtr.co.uk/forum/161786-so-begins-2.html

Although she looks good there are still a lot of marks I'd like to get out but I can't stop driving her at the mo, lol. I took Robbie's advice on here and have got some new products. I'm going to have a go again when the weather improves. But for now she's just getting used with safe cleaning in between ; )

Time wise, I think it was about 15 hours in total. I did it over a week or so after work etc. She's a BIG car and there's a lot of paint to correct lol.

Already have some new chips though (Battle scares from the weekends Run lol). Going to have the front done early next year and then get it clear wrapped to protect from further damage.

Get some pic's up mate when you can. I never tire of looking at GTR's

always used the 2 bucket technique my self when cleaning cars
just ordered 200 quids worth of cleaning stuff including 2 lambswool mitts
zaino z7 dodo juice drying towel collinite 476s carlack 2 buckets with grit catchers trim gel etc etc
thought it would take a long time to clean proper just from washing her they are big
but ya right get a buzz out of getting them clean
gonna do the same with the stone chipsas you but for now had some paint mixed up just to touch in any stone chips

I have to say that this does surprise me as the car is driving as my 17 year old 33 would! I would of thought they would of now been able to help the car out of these angles in the wet 17 years on?

Imho I would like the Gtr to be full 4wd all of the time in the future (Takes cover!)
