r32 gtr custom project

Hi all just thought id get a bit more active on the forum. I own a custom car workshop/bodyshop in oxford and have been building cars for the past 10 years. Done a fair few s13 in the past and quite a bit of american stuff. This however is my first skyline.
The car came up at a very good price however it was in bits and needed a full respray. Ill post up some pics of how i get on with it . Ill aim to build it as i have done the rest of my cars ....not too over the top but with a slight hint of custom. Iv chosen bayside blue for the simple fact i love the colour! Lol. Hope you all enjoy!

Looks like a great project and a good buy if structurally sound. Nice work mate.

Cheers, yes defo a good buy considering the underside is mint and thats always the bit no one wants to do! The mustang is pretty cool but not really a car you can jump in and have some fun as your always thinking how much time and money went into it! Havent been on the r32 in a couple of days as iv had to do a full respray on a fto but thats done now! So back on it tomorow to fit the torque split controller. Cant remember the make something dancer ill get some pics up later. Heres the fto thats been taking up my time!!!
