A friend of mine just got his R33 GTS back from getting it resprayed.
I am very pleased with the results and he is ecstatic over his car's fresh
look. So far, IIRC, he has Apex N1 exhaust, GTR front bumper, GTR rear
spoiler, body kit (dont know which brand), frp front fenders with vents,
Apexi RSM (not fitted yet) as well as a Momo wheel (not fitted either). Needs new tails as current ones are slightly damaged.

Let the project begin. I will work with him on building his car.
Pics taken just after p/u his car, need to get shots in the sun,
a lot of over cast and taken at dusk.







Not bad for a 17 year old - huh?
I wish my first car was a Skyline.
I am going to help him buff out the head lights to get rid
of the yellowish dull effect. Any suggestions?

Nice color!

I wish I could have had a skyline for a first car.....would have been a whole lot nicer than the "motorized shopping cart" I bought! :D

Is that a black GTS I can see in the background of the first pic :)

Cleaned headlight lenses

Before:



After: (a lot of glare but it looks a lot better)







Really pleased with the results of 5 minutes work. Still need to apply
some sort of sealant after the cleanser. I used Meguiars Fine Cut Cleanser.
It really cleaned and removed the yellowish haze/dullness. The pics
do not do it justice.

Pretty stupid car for a 17 y/o. Is it a 2.5 or a 2.0?
A 17 yr old Japanese kid would probably be more controlled and mature enough to handle such a car than a 17 yr old british kid!
