    C110 Skyline
  1. nah he had a few just sitting on the road out the front of his house that were mint and they were taken a few years ago, I haven't spoken to him in ages and I would never tell anyone where they are located that's for sure.
  2. Hmmmmm might get you to do the final spray job on the vert next year
  3. He's not a member and probably won't be. I'll be amazed if he even restores just one. Some of them have already been stolen which is sad.
  4. Pm sent, I'm keen as to hit some buildings
  5. Tell me more about these high rises? do you have access to the roof during night times?
  6. Sweet, it's great to see another V8 powered K in the making and as you've put a Nissan V8 in you won't get a heap of abusive messages there is heaps of space in the engine bay for an 8, I had mine put as far back as possible and the front axle line ends up between the 1st and 2nd pair of pistons. With that being an alloy V8 it will end up with better weight distribution than the original 6, the L24 is a heavy motor. Good work, I'm stoked one of Kent's cars is getting an 8!
  7. I love to keep my word but the truth is I'm not going to be able to. The left hand side head has blown a gasket recently, effectively stopping me from driving long distances. It has only done 900klms so far, that has been 900klm of hot laps around my neighborhood tho. I'm not really willing to fix the engine until I save up enough money to buy the engine components, it is very depressing not making it to the nationals but I don't really want to show the car when its running the tired V8 with a 2bbl carby on it even if it does still smoke 2nd all over the street while coughing and spiting. The guards are original GT-R style flares that have been cut along the edge, stretched outwards and then fibreglassed up. I'll order another set soon. The poor vert has sat unloved in the garage most of this year as I have been training really hard to be able to go overseas and base jump in wingsuits www.youtube.com/watch?v=QU3Wgg7fons&feature=g-upl ontop of that I bought a 20ft gaff cutter sailboat to restore which probably hasn't helped the vert funding very much. My plans to finish it now are to import a alloy top end package for the V8 and upgrade to a Supra 6 speed box before the end of the year, then save up and have a roll cage put in, weld the doors up while geting a panel shop spray job, stroke the V8 out to about 400 cubes and have a custom dash and interior put in. Hopefully then I will be content with it for a few years. I'm guessing as I've gotten it this far you guys will be willing to believe me when I tell you all these grand plans I have Also I have found some 240k parts while cleaning up my garage people want I believe. Someone wanted the two coupe door clips, I have a spare set and also someone wanted the fuel filler cap. If you guys still want these parts let me know.
  8. I met a guy who is hording all the C110's, he had 6 x coupes, 2 x 4 doors, 1 x C210 coupe, 1 x Skyline GT-B, 1 x very early model celica coupe, eh wagon. And no he will not sell any of them and there is no way I will be telling you where they are. It's sad to see so many just sitting there but he honestly believes he will restore most of them to pristine condition one day. <a href="http://s660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/240kconvertible/?action=view&current=IMAG0834.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/240kconvertible/IMAG0834.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="http://s660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/240kconvertible/?action=view&current=IMAG0833.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/240kconvertible/IMAG0833.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>
  9. All these years later you guys finally get some action shots I sadly had to get the rear flares extended for rego and am yet to replace them with original shape ones, I'm not very happy with the rims but they have gotten it rolling and will eventually become burnout rims so that's ok . <a href="http://s660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/240kconvertible/?action=view&current=IMAG0329.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/240kconvertible/IMAG0329.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="http://s660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/240kconvertible/?action=view&current=IMAG0328.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/240kconvertible/IMAG0328.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="http://s660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/240kconvertible/?action=view&current=IMAG0326.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/240kconvertible/IMAG0326.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="http://s660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/240kconvertible/?action=view&current=IMAG0284.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/240kconvertible/IMAG0284.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="http://s660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/240kconvertible/?action=view&current=IMAG0241.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/240kconvertible/IMAG0241.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="http://s660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/240kconvertible/?action=view&current=IMAG0143.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/240kconvertible/IMAG0143.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="http://s660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/240kconvertible/?action=view&current=IMAG0141.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu327/240kconvertible/IMAG0141.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>
  10. I bagz the good set of dog legs. . . sry camo but my vert really needs them for me to be happy with it
  11. Can you grab the rear lights too Scott. I'll be skydiving all weekend at Toogoolawah if you want to drop in for a tandem, I'll fly camera for you free of charge
  12. there are a couple of rear lights on the coupes out at the wreckers, might be worth grabbing those.
  13. Might not if Scott is going to go out for us want a hand Scott? Can you get me one set of rear doglegs and Camo the other please? Is this the weather strip? I have a set that is rusted but can part with them. I am thinking of welding my doors up and going dukes of hazard style so might have a 2nd set free too. There are some window trims left on them as seen in the vid.
