My R34 Gtr restoration story so far........

Itís been a while, kind of took a step back as skyline ownership was proving to be an obsessive disorder.
Had to prioritise the important things in my life as two bereavements in a space of one year can be too much to handle for some.

Couldnít let go of the skyline though, as much as l had contemplated it and had every reason to, l just couldnít let go of unfinished business.

I think the skyline bug had buried itself deep as some of you will recognise

As you may have remembered her, keep in mind those that dont, this car was built by myself, through the different changes, right, wrong or just wanting a change, apart from the engine (built by MGTracing) done by yours truly.

I seem to have got a new lease of life for all things skyline, my interest seems to have been ignited again, it’s probably due to some new aesthetically pleasing products Now on the market because, let’s face it, as well as the performance these cars give, you just can’t get away from how pleasing the R34 Gtr is to the eye..... when done right.

Mainly cosmetic for now, been hoarding parts over the years, but a lot of mechanical stuff was done that l didnít reveal when the last thread was up.
