Gahhh............ It was meant to land in Brisbane two weeks ago, but I got an email today saying its landing tomorrow... Must have missed the boat when it was meant to come over.

So probably another two weeks until I get to see it :(

You think you're eagerly anticipating its arrival... Try being in my shoes... It's been about three and a half months now and it still hasn't turned up. It finally cleared customs at the start of last week and they thought it'd be here on Friday, so maybe in the next couple of days....

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!

Runs nicely (but has a flat battery, so I'll get a new one tomorrow), electrics all seem to work. I've only really found a couple of spots of rust. Interior is amazing. I'm pretty happy with it.

I need to replace the wiper arms and blades and get a few things done to allow me to register it. I can't believe how good the interior is, its pretty much immaculate. Even the seatbacks for the rear seats are good, a little faded but the fabric hasn't fallen apart like in pretty much every other DR

Rear seats that aren't rooted!


Image

Both the left and right front guards have these creases, I assume they're meant to be there?


Image

The only rust I could find, front side of the well in the boot on the left hand side, the one that the jack and wheel chocks are in



Can someone please post photos of their windscreen wiper arms? My lefthand one doesn't seem right, it looks like its too long and the bonnet is jammed against it

Congrats good to see it finaly came, that seems to be in seriously good condition for a DR30.

Where that jack well is, It will fill up with water sometimes, mine had about an inch of water sitting in there when I bought it, lucky there was just abit of surface rust, nothing bad. Now it never sits out in the rain :tu:

Looking at the condition of your car Im guessing you are lucky enough to still have the rubbers intact around your mirrors? Everyone elses seem to be shot, mine included. Apparently you cant buy them through nissan anymore but I havnt checked.

Strut towers appear to be ok. Rubbers around the mirrors are pretty good.

I did find something that doesn't work though :( Right-hand speakers don't work, I'll have to pull the deck and check the wiring at some point. I can get my favourite station on the radio but at some point I'll be fitting new speakers and an amp, I'll leave the stock deck in place and get a pre-amp kit and have a hidden 3.5mm cable so I can just run it from my iPhone

Your Skyline looks great, i like the super 80's interior!

Quick update...


Got the car registered at 4:30pm the day before I left for Skyline Nationals in NSW in September, car ran well, except for the ding dong, ding dong speed alert. For 1300km. Each way.


Found some pics from the trip/weekend thanks to whoever took them...




Forgot I took some on the way to Nats...
