Looking good. You might get those headers ceramic coated, and toss those air filters for something that will allow the motor to breath. Silver is a great color for the car, might as well leave it.

If that should happen, or you replace them, please let me know first. I am keen for a set of those.
Thanks for the updates. Very good incentive :tu:

Yes, we will give it a refresh and reinstall it. I'll pick up a 2.8 petrol and build a 3.1 stroker over the winter period.

Staying Silver, we are going for Nissan's Sparkling Silver paint from the R34GTR Range, not too bright and will show of the curves and lines beautifully.

Just got the wheels back from the refurb company, I had the fronts totally stripped, turned down on a lathe and had the minor buckles removed. All now painted in Dark Gunmetal. I'll post up some pictures of them soon. The interior has been fully revamped inc new black carpets and black headlining.

As this project is nearing completion Im just about to get my next, found a 71' 260Z................

here's a few pics from today. You can see we have used a dark base coat and then applied a light primer over this, blocking the car then reveals the imperfections as dark shadows. There are plenty for us to work on removing.

The small holes are from door mirrors that have been replaced over the cars history. We will weld these shut.
