Hi,

What sort of things should be checked when looking at R32 GTR's?

How does the insurance compare on these to the R33 GTS-t?

Any info much appreciated,

Vince

Hi,

Forgot where I got these points from, but I printed them off for reference some time ago.

Check for the year of manufacture by looking at the front seatbelts near the floor mounting point.

Inspect the welded seams in the front door sills just below the plastic kickplate. This is where rust has been seen to form, especially on R32's.

Remove the rubber around the boot trim. This is a prime rust spot in any car. While you are there, look in the side panels and make sure they are not full of water.

Feel inside the panels in the boot where the jack is. Debris found in here will tell a story. Watch for glass. (Broken rear window or tail lights at some point)

Inside the engine bay, look for crayon or chalk marks on components. This may indicate they have been replaced with second-hand parts.

Crawl under the car and inspect behind the front and rear bumpers for signs of collusion damage.

Hope these are of some help. :)
