    Update: seams after I ripped rear hanger of exhaust off it must of pulled the turbo loose, threads where fine so was gasket so juat needed to tighten them all up, I see how one of them as a pig but only took couple of hours.
    Completely ruined the exhaust hangers need to manufacture something new before test as well as brakes need done so best place to get discs?

    As far as make of lights I can't remember for the life of me atm sorry.

    Unless it got resprayed by the previous owner then the colour is yellowish white not arctic white.

    There are 2 "Arctic white" colours.

    KG5 used on pre-facelift up to Aug '90 build. A dirty polar bear sort of white. Also called Ivory white.

    The facelift 326 colour was introduced Oct '90 and would have arrived on UK roads around March '91. A much more brilliant white.

    It's still the same colour, I blame the sun for the yellowish white colour that it is, in my brochure for the year of the car it one lists artic white but could be wrong, regerdless it's going red if someone knows the original red paint code

    The name of the colour is yellowish white. I think there's a sticky thread in tech S13 with the colour codes on it. Which red you going for, the flat one or the metallic burgandy one?

    Noted. Yeah I'll fire over for a look, the gloss red, not a huge fan of the metallic one, I was going to go out the box for a colour but thought I'd keep it to a standard colour, it was red or two tone

    According to the site there's 4 different reds. The colour codes are listed in sbody chat under "200sx glossary". I'd find the colour on someone's car and ask them what the paint code is.

    Update:

    Car was in for mot on the 22nd and failed on rusty strut towers, after looking the rusty holes seamed too round to be natural rust and there I found it was holes for bonnet rubbers, also had some other stupid fail but got it sorted.

    Coming home from mot the wiper linkage snapped... So I got angry and parked it in the garage and left it.

    So think it's bodgable I'll get on it soon, also unsure of going red now maybe stick with white so I'll need to find the current paint code if anyone knows where it's located? Looking at livery but unsure, oh and body kits, and 3 spoke wheels... So I have no idea what I'm doing.

    Oh ordered a standard center bar.

    No new pics apart from my cat so here.

    Red is a bad idea as it fades and goes pink.

    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...
