This is gonna be awesome.

Thanks mate.another special customization that is always spectacular
Cheers guys, hopefully I can start the real work soon. Now I'm thinking the Nismo livery on the side might actually work with the overall style of the car. With the engine rocker/valve cover, I'm thinking a nicer pearly red, or maybe carbon fibre. The front plate is just on for these pictures to cover some marks from the old plate.That front spoiler looks surprisingly really good on it. The curve on the the rear spoiler doesnt look to bad on the pictures.
Carbon cover and carbon strut towers like a Z-Tune? Hmmm let's see.I would go for some kind of dark colour for the valve cover. Carbon sounds perfect.
Definitely, the stock wheels and the LMGT4's they come with do this car no justice.Yeah that looks lovely. More than any, this model screams for a different set of wheels
Cheers Rob, will try that way if I do it again. And yeah, the tyres even have the rotation and date codes and everything. I'm hoping for some higher profile ones next.Nice work so far, wow, those new TK tyres are insanely detailed, I will have to get a set of those for my next JDM build. Can I give you a suggestion, use a Dremel with a thin cut of wheel to cut those wing leg bases off and then the dremel again with a sanding drum to clean up the cut, it will give you a much better (and quicker) cut and finish rather than using a saw. Less filling to do as well.
Cheers Craig, hopefully look even better after clearcoat.Nice work so far, the carbon work looks spot on!
Cheers Rob, yeah that's what I was thinking, don't want to contaminate it and get a bad reaction.Nice work so far. Yeah, try to avoid polishing anything that still needs to be painted (or cleared) as you could then get a reaction and get fish eyes (small open holes in the paint)
Cheers Alex, I love the look of this carbon and it takes clearcoat nicely too.the carbon on that spoiler looks great.
Cheers K! This part definitely deserves 2k clear, but I still don't have a proper set up to be able to use it, unless I do it outdoors, although I've left it a bit late in the year to do that lol. At the moment I'm still using Tamiya TS13 clear, spraying lots of light coats to build it up.That is going to look so good when you slap 2k clear all over it
Cheers Wes. Yeah it transforms the car doesn't it, the track car look is starting to show. I can't wait to start the stripped interior and roll cage.Eeek that's gonna look good. This car needs a hot hood, this was a good decision
Cheers mate! Will try and go further on this engine than I have before. Yeah the tyres are supercool, I'm hoping Lars will at some point make some higher profile ones that are just as detailed for all the old school cars (like those IG tyres).Looking forward for that engine, it's always my favourite part. But Rob's right, the detail on those tyres is just mental!!
Thanks Giovanni.Wow, I have to put on my sunglasses.... Great outcome. Looker forward on the progress off the engine, looks very promising so far!
Thanks Emil, will let you know if I ever need anything.great attention to detail there. If you need specific photos from an 1:1 R34 GTR let me know
Hey Rob, it's Tamiya 2mm clear soft beams, nice and easy to shape.Love those inner interior panels looking like pressed metal parts, and what is that clear tubing you use for the roll cage?
