This is the original side Kev, but if you look closely you can see the holes for the skirts/spats. I'm not sure if a non N1 had holes where your thinking, as it didn't come with those rear spats..?? I will be running after market items, as I am not paying £1000 for a ****ed set.

Yeah I did. Stripped completely, media blasted and powdered. New cv kits with boots all round. If you have a look at Kev's 32 project he has done a much more detailed run through, that's if his pictures are still available.

Thanks mate, seriously yours and Kev's builds are seriously inspiring. It's no excuse for any of us not to roll up our sleeves and do things ourselves how and where we can.

Cant wait to see more and the final finished product.

R32 ground up restoration

So it has been a tough few weeks for the 32, but finally all closed up and swiftly on the road to paint prep. New inner and outer 1/4 plus new sill all in place for good. Gaps are perfect around boot lid, drivers door and front wing. So happy with the outcome. It's now back on the spit for the last time to get some welds without burning some skin. Also got my endless 6pots back from recon and ready to reassemble.

A lot of work but it's great you can still buy the panels from Nissan even if the price is hard to swallow. Keep up the good work.

The rear discs look heavy did you weigh them? I'm also amazed their was no other solution. What about 370rear discs and brembos? Al hat versions are available for those.

Question

Do you mind me asking where you got these two carbon parts:

I've seen the Carbon intercooler surround before, but not the Dash panel trim.

The OEM scuttle panel has been overplayed in carbon fibre. Turns out nice.

Thumbs up

Wow it looks really good.

Did you do it?

I've been toying with trying covering trim items with Carbon myself.
Maybe I'll get some old trim from the breakers to practice on before I start tearing into valuable GT-R trim.

Looking good so far, what did you use on the underside of it? I'm at that stage with mine and it's bit of a minefield picking what brand of stuff to go with lol!!

So I started with two coats of epoxy, seam sealer, 3M sprayable sealer and then finished with dinitrol finish coat. What you see is basically the epoxy. Being seam sealed this week.
