    cheers, ehm. full respray again, the cars clean, but the kit doesnt fit as well as id like it do, want rid of any small dents and swirls in the paint. going to fully redo the interior. flocked dash, cage different colour, 2 bride low max kevlar recliners. bride mats, carbon doorcards with bride cloth centres, all parts of dash thats been cut for the cage covered with sheet carbon. going to go for 8 pot front brakes. and if i get any problems with the rb25 im going to to a rb26 swap since im already half way there.

    and before next summer im going to strip everything off it underneath and get everything powdercoated and all undersealed. maybe try out those new driftworks hubs aswell

    also added a kenwood dvd satnav headunit in there, much better than the old one

    Bit mad to drive it as a daily with that petrol consumption! For a minute there I thought you bought Bling's car but I think that has over 550bhp?

    yeh they are quite an expensive option am sure, shadow chrome

    and im with bell, mods declaired, but i was suprised, it was only 1200 for me as a standard car, much less than my ek9 was. and ive almost got 4 years no claims now so that defo makes a difference!.

    ahh im loving the weather to be honest, its the best time to learn how to get used to rwd, my confidence is booming now, not drifted in the dry yet, a bit too quick for me yet, but in the wet/ice ive mastered it. not really been taking too much chances though, only places with decent space. but im obviously not going to be daft and bin the car thats just cost me a fortune lol.

    anyways, next update will be shortly. also on the lookout for a carbon cooling plate? being new to nissans im having trouble finding the websites that sell all the cool stuff for them, apart from rhdjapan

    Head over to the traders section of the forum, plenty of places to spend your cash there.
