Nice, thanks for the info, I'll check it out. I've got 800-200 at home so might come in handy. I also saw a nice buffing kit form Novus which could be handy.

Also with the clock i think it was still a option to have a clock from factory or the owners just fitted them later. I have a few pics of genuine GTR's with them but im not 100% certain on the strory behind it.

Yeah I'm pretty sure they are, the guy that I bought the car from was into Zeds.

I fitted the breather/fuel cap covers yesterday. They look great but the cover for the fuel cap was no where close to fitting so I had to sand it down. Finishes off the covers really nicely. I just need to find a new lock mechanism for the fuel cover as the one I have is missing the key hole cover.

Pulled the glass out over the weekend and the rest of the interior. The windscreen wasn't too bad, it obviously been replaced before because the sealant was still quite soft and workable. I used the heat gun and knife and managed to lift it out pretty easily in one piece, too bad it's chipped and needs to be replaced anyhow. The rear glass was a differennt story, the sealant was seriously hard and they heat gun didn't do much other than set it on fire :rolleyes:

My dad came up with the great idea of using his new Makita Mult-tool to cut though the sealant. It cut like a hot knife though butter, I would have been there for hours doing it by hand otherwise. We got the rear glass out with no scratches or cracks, I'm not sure if rear glass can be sourced?

I still have to clean up around the windscreen but both the front and rear seem to be in pretty good shape with only some very minor rust at the rear. On the drivers side there is a few clip mounts missing and some pin holes that will need to be fixed.

The inside looks pretty good too, some minor rust in the rear foot wells where water has sat around the drain holes and some surface on the sides but I'm pretty happy. Next will be the doors, and the dash which will be re-skinned.

Oh yeah, the blue is just so sexy....:paranoid:

Yeah not much rust so far, but I know it's in the usual spots. I've been digging....just wait, the car has a few surprises in store yet.

Being the glutton for punishment I am, and wanting to use as many original parts as possible, I decided to bring in a rust GTR grill I found in Japan. It was a lot cheaper that most I've seen going at around AUD $700 and considering a replica grill is close to AUD $600 I figured it was good value. I knew I was going to have to do some work on it but I wasn't sure just how much. I picked up the grill from Aaron at Import Monster (http://www.importmonster.com.au) last week and took a look at it over the weekend.

It's rusty alright!

The top and back aren't too bad..

But the bottom is worse than I feared and will need to be replaced..

I'm not too fussed, I'll drill the pop rivets, dismantle the entire grill and then send the salvageable parts away for acid dipping and zinc plating. I'll take the bottom piece into a metal fabricator and hopefully they can knock me something up. Fingers crossed!

My grill has some minor rust on it as well (and that cost me over $1k a couple of years back!), the issue for me is finding a similar colour touch up paint, i would rather that than a full respray as the rest is in good original condition.

Yeah the paint on this is junk as you can see. It's going to be tough to track down a paint code for this. I do have some really nice pictures though but dunno how much help they'll be. It's not the same paint color as the rear panel is it?

i thought about bidding on it the first time it went on and no one bidded on it but was unsure on how bad the rust actually was. Colour wise i think it's different, really hard to judge by photos though

Yeah agreed, I reckon it will come up ok. Might tackle it this weekend. Picked up some more bits from A A Vinney's (http://www.vinneys.com.au) this week. Still waiting on the polishing jobs to come back though, some parts were pretty bad. I got the mirror bases sorted, these go under the guards and hold them on.

I also got the rest of my fuel filler back and the clips that hold the boot and bonnet chrome work on. The clips are somewhat decayed but they were doing a good job before I took them off so I'm sure they'll hold. Also the number plate lights.

Also had some used and NOS parts arrive...

A mint light cover, these are usually cracked and discolored

20121114211602.jpg

Some black grab rails for the new black interior

20121114211754.jpg

Some NOS switches for the dash

20121114212409.jpg

And a NOS gear boot, choke cable and skyline badge for the dash.

20121114215046.jpg

And new rubbers for the window divide and bonnet.

I also fitted the Nissan logo to the gauges instead of the clock. Lots of GTR's came with a clock, some didn't. It would appear there many options, right down to the cigarette lighter and switches for lights etc. I've noted some GTR's that don't even have heater/air controls, talk about basic.

I also picked up some power window mechanisms and switches. I'm missing a rear mech though. Not sure if I'll fit these yet or not, could be cool though.

unsure if you have noticed but some skyline dash badges have the skyline in chrome. Dont know if it's a early/late model thing or what?

Yeah the badge isn't new so the chrome is missing, I've got this picture saved too :) Not quite sure how I'll do this yet.
