Did Nick ever finish this car?


Recommended Posts


Dunno know because I wasn't here then but if I had rusty rear quarters, I would seriously consider going this route. I have loved box flares like that since I first saw them on a Ford Capri around 27 years ago.

Finally, after so long I decided to pull my finger out & give my thumb ago... so I got stuck into the doors. The door shells were perfect, just surface rust but the skins needed changing (dented & rusty).

The door shells were garnet blasted then sprayed with POR 15 followed by fabricating new double intrusion bars made from T6061 alloy. These are much stronger than the single flimsy original pressed steel type.

There has also been a change to the door handles, out with the old & in with the new... now sporting the R32 Skyline type.

Looks like a Ferrari engine?

 


Exactly what I thought !! default_laugh.png I guess being Maserati it is pretty much a Fezza engine!

Looks amazing - I love the fact that the engine sits perfectly behind the front axle! That can only be a good thing for handling!! Very S2000-esque FMC configuration.

It’s a RHD I noticed - so where in the world are you?

Good luck with your recovery chap and looking forward to tracking your progress!

It’s actually a 3.2L Maserati V8 & 6 Spd tranny. I’m in Australia.

Thanx but have to be careful not to stuff my back so will be slow.

I was surfing on my phone at the time and couldn't read the valve covers. Be careful, bad backs are no fun!!
