Great write up, just been through the same thing (but at a much lesser level) - I took off those pesky little spats to find a rust spot ... luckily no where near as bad - so just got my car back from having it sorted, plus some other little bits.
Carl popped round last night to give me a copy of the Meguiars advert, and told me it will all be in primer by the weekend :bowdown1: . Then it will be left for a week to 'settle', as it is never good to paint on fresh primer. During that time the brakes are being skimmed.
The only problem I have Goodwood Saturday and the Pod Sunday, so I won't get to see her in primer until next week. What a roast!!! :bawling: :bawling:

As some of you know, I bought my original R33 GTR last year around June / July. I was very happy with the car, despite it appearing to have done more miles than stated. Following ~2000 miles of trouble free driving, #6 main bearing let go, taking the crank, piston, etc with it. But! I overcame...

Where to start??
Well as you can probably tell from the title I have an '89 gun metal grey...
Paid £400 only 18 months ago to have the entire underside of my GTR undersealed.
Had it up on a lift yesterday. Half the underseal has disappeared.:chairshot
Not impressed!! How long is this stuff supposed to last? Going by the bit where it's fallen off, it's not a recent thing either.
My suffering in the rebuilding R33 gtr :tard:
About 3 years ago I bought my first R33 gtr here in Belgium.
The car was pretty good but there were some clutch problems little rust etc .
So I planned a full rebuild .
Not quite a Gt-r but an exiting project all the same.
Having come from RB25 , RB25 Neo (brilliant little engine) to RB26 with a hell of a lot of bells and whistles , I am finally doing an RB34/26 motor for my S14.
The RB26 was an animal and put down 400 odd Hp to the road , was diabolical on...
