Hello all! I have an AUTOart Vspec 2 skyline R32 I am battling with. I cannot seem to get the motor out. Id also like to get the hood off as well and possibly the front bumper...rear bumper to do a full repaint. Can anyone help me out?

Usually the engine is held on by a screw. You have to flip the bottom of engine off with a flathead screwdriver and you should see the screw
I mod stuff

Front and rear bumpers are secured with plastic pegs and glue. Theres no 100% guaranteed way of removing them without breaking the pegs, but try removing as much of the hot glue as possible before doing any pulling to minimise the risk

If its an original release, the bonnet hinges are clamped in under the dashboard and you will need to remove dashboard and windscreen to get at the screws holding the clamps in place.

I do not think this is an original release. There is a lot of melted plastic knobs that hold the engine in place I believe. Theres no more screws for me to remove. The windows, engine and bumpers are the only things left on the body.
