Operation 240k

Hey buddy anymore updates on this car? Just came across it now. I would love to get stuck into a K one day. Have always liked them and felt kinda sorry for them rotting away unloved in many junkyard in Australia.

Hi Lenny, sorry about the delay in replying. The flares were copied from the original gtr flares, only made shorter ( distance from the ground). The flares were made by a local panel maker, the number was given to me by the local hotrod guys, I'm happy to pass the number on if you wish..The only problem is that they cost me $1650.00 and you need a set of fibreglass ones to copy (which i have). If you are interested please let me know...he has also fabricated rear beaver, lower quarters (front and back), lower doors, lower guards, wiper tray, and inner and outer window gutters for me. Thanks for your kind words on my build...will post photos of the R33 aluminum radiator and intercooler install soon

Making replacement panel parts aren't to much of a problem...We have templates for some parts, front guards, 2 door lowers and four door lowers, the rear quarter on the coupe are an issue as my replacements parts didn't include the wheel arch, as you can see from the photos there's a fair bit missing because of the flares...as a general rule you cut out the rusted section as good as possible and he will make a replacement with welding rids in place so it doesn't buckle when you weld it in place...by the way his in Melbourne...

Fabricated intercooler piping over the weekend, had to cut a small section off the top of the rails to make room for the r33 radiator, but it all seems to fit ok...

may i ask why in some of the pictures there is green tape along the lines of the car? i can't quite work it out (other than to possibly protect the edges?)..

great job the car looks straight as a tack! how many hours did you spend bogging and sanding?

The green tape on post #13 was to show were the inner guard sits....I just used it to show the internal wheel clearance. thanks

There's not much filler in the car at all, which means we spent a $^!# load of time getting it straight...
