    Re-read Skyshack's post as he told you what colour it is. Its an early car so the yellowish white with alpha rather than a numeric code.

    326 is a facelift white and looks like this...

    Shouldn't with the new water based paint tho? Yeah I had a read I'll look into it a bit as it's a 91.

    Pretty much decided last night to stay white tbh means less work as door jams ect are fine

    Was able to fix the wiper linkage after not being able to find anywhere selling one, bodge consisted of pulling back the tabs in the socket clean it and push a 1mm welding wire into the gap all the way around, to keep it in place I tiger sealed the face of it and cleaned the edge that touches the rubber, hey presto fine free bodge see how long it lasts

    Haha thanks, I wanted to stay polished lips but the only way I could was to buy new ones and it wasn't going to be cheap so this was the next best thing, I also picked up a type x rear spat for it only pic I have is one from the web

    It's been a while, Thermostat crapped itself so new one arrived yesterday, sold my spare wheels I had sitting so I can now afford my paint for the S13 so hopefully get it ordered this week and get started on it, debating putting lots of flake in it because why not, I'll try keep this up to date!

    Did you respray it the original colour? What show did you take it to? You can still buy rads from Nissan but they are pricey.

    Oh yeah I put that in. It's not lasted as long as you'd expect. I'd go for a better one.

    I've put some rad weld in just now so I can use it if need be as I have needed to put funds else where, I will replace it over the winter months and can route the pipes better also as the top rad hose is hitting the intercooler pipe
