Wow! Killer build. Love all the fab work. Can't believe I missed this thread. Just sat quietly and read through from the beginning.

Looking forward to seeing how this progresses and what you with the carbon.

Hopefully with the forum change it will be easier to post pictures too.

I have done a bit on the GTR but been distracted by building a VE (camshaft) profile switching sr20 for the silvia that has been a rolling shell for the last 12 months.

I am effectively building the engine from a lot of new parts and then separately sourced block, crank head ect.

One thing I hate about normal sr20 builds in poorly spray painted blocks and heads. So instead I had all the aluminium parts Soda blasted. Below is how the head looks

great work David. im in the process of doing a restoration too. i've exposed a lot of the rust and grind must of it off. however there are areas that have some pitting and sand blast is not an option for me, im sure you encountered areas like this. have you used any rust remover(phosphoric acid) or rust converter? im not sure which to use. one of the reasons is because i havent decided if i should use epoxy primer or a zinc primer.
