Very nice project mate, I reckon get a set of those Katayama flairs and 13x10" Watanabe's, would suit it really well. :P

Good luck with it!

Nice, are you thinking of doing some to sell? What colour are you thinking of painting it?

Saw this on youtube and it makes me want one.

Nice car mate.

I have just put 2 and 2 together! Your username made me gerry. Do you or did you have a yellow r34 skyline? I used to see the blue ute around when I lived in Essendon. Or am I way off?
If that's you, I remember beeping at you a couple of times, I would have either been in my white 929 wagon with 13b bridgy, or my yellow capella with 13b bridgy.

AH HA!

Yeh, I used to see the ute around every so often. Cool car. My brother actually lives just down the road from MCR.

Good luck with the rest of your build :D

will be the original white colour,havent decided about the headrests yet....more than likely yes,but to be honest the problem is im sick of seeing people whinging about products that are already available not being "perfect" for example the repo panels that are available,ive never seen them in person but i know if i did need one and couldnt find a secondhand one id much rather buy them and work them than sit there with an english wheel/sheet metal/hammer/dollys and sand bag making them....ive been there,its not fun.Something to start with is better than nothing in my books.
