I think RHD japan has this... Not from nismo (coz they're not making it anymore) but from premier Japanese aero kit maker east bear.

I need a second hand original one with mounting studs....my experiance of replica aero parts is that genrally as a rule they are of a crap quality and NEVER fit first time without modyfying them.....................

Anyone got one lurking at the back of their workshops they will sell me????

There's been a few new old stock Nismo originals on YAJ but they sell for around £2-300.

There are some good copies about. Mainly the ones that wrap under the front of the bonnet with a flat panel that surrounds the bonnet latch.

On my first R32 the original Nismo one departed at speed as the alloy fasteners had corroded and seperated from the PU. Whipped off over the windscreen and was never seen again! Left a row of ally bolts in the bonnet and a bunch of old sticky tape gunge.

we do very good nismo copies of these in FRP or carbon

problem with the original ones is that they trap water and deform etc over time.

so they never look right (esp if on the car for 15 years lol)

As I told East bear japan does it very well... they have nismo side step and boot lip spoiler. This company is a Japanese co. they make those out of production kits from popular jdm performance cars. RHD japan sells them.

LOL! That must have been full on! Mayby your car lives up to your forum name!

I still have an original front and rear one, However my rear one is starting to look a little lumpy.

My front one is just stuck on with 3m tape....done properly you don't need the bolts.

It doesn't at the minute - it's just a bunch of very nice parts being slowly assembled into a very clean shell. It will be a lot lot quicker than my first one though.

Proper 3M VHB tape is amazing. The only time it really struggles is in extreme cold. Refitted all the Nismo side skirts with new clips and VHB earlier this year. Brilliant stuff.
