    Cool Dan's PS13 club ks The keeper :)

    here is my silvia, had her for about a year now so heres some pictures of how I got it to now




    then upgraded the compressor to do the paint I have painted a few cars with the little compressor but wanted a new on to power the new gun

    here is my civic I painted my self


    then pained a few in-between but here is my s14 loved this car


    any way back to the silvia
    the garaged needed sorting so that got a clean

    silvia back in and started the work



    then some paint (this is straight from the gun not been flatted and buffed yet)


    headlights had a clean

    silvia grill needed sorting


    parts next


    then got the carbon boot for a really good price


    silvia grill finished

    abit more together

    this it her at oulton park,

    I have used it a bit and she has just had all the subframe powder coated will get some pictures sorted soon

    This car used to belong to Jeff on here, he's a mate so I saw it a lot, glad you decided to tackle the bodywork before the rust got any worse. The sideskirts aren't to my taste, but it's your car so if you like them then

    Car looks so much better all in white again

    BTW, that's a genuine factory aero front bumper you have there, they are incredibly rare, so I hope you kept the little plastic grilles

    Looking good

    What did you use to get the headlights and grille clear of all the scratches?

    yeah that's who I got the car from, the body work is just in again at the moment I think I have got board with white now will have some pictures up soon of what its going

    side skirts are now off had them on my old s13 but didn't really like them on the ps13

    I still have the plastic parts to the bumper but they have cracked so need to repair them before they go back on

    Looks stunning now!

    You only need two tools in life - wd-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the wd-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

    And if you can't fix it with a hammer,you've got an electrical problem!

    That got a little bit of gold flake in the red there?

    Looks lovely, though the white also very smart. Excellent finish on the spraying too, looks professionally done.

    Been hard at work trying to get it back on the road finally painted the inside in kuro black took so long to prep catching my fingers on little bits




    after that got it into primer last night put down a good 5 coats its a rose filler primer hopefully it will bring the red out really well




    will get some more pictures on soon as the top coat is done can not wait to see what its going to look like
