A new project from me again! :p This time finally a Skyline GT-R R32!!! Just got this body last night, plan for this is to clean it up a bit, fill up the holes on the body, going wingless, and a wide body kit.

I'm excited to see the progress on this one.

Also, thanks for posting that picture of the real car. I was starting to think my front bumper was a little too big, but that one looks pretty similar.

It looked quite scuffed to begin with,and now it looks better than new!

Did you use a spring spacer for the wheel spacer? Does the wheel still spin ok? I need to try that on my TE's since they aren't flush in the back.

Yea I used the spring spacer, as long as don't tighten the lug nuts too tight, you'll be alright.


Update: Got the fender flares almost done on 1 side. Also cut out the front grill.

Haha, yea that was a hard hit, and the other car hit it in the good spot, my bumper and left fender flare fall off right after.

Thanks, I wouldn't bother with the zip ties as of now, because I will be modify the front bumper.

http://www.autospecsltd.com/Japaneseusedcars.com%20Sponsored%20R32%20Skyline%2 0Dirft%20Car.jpg
and I was wondering, what do you guys think if I should keep or loose the fender flares?

Faze

I vote D1!! I want to see how much better yours will turn out, haha!

Pierro
2010.08.11, 02:25 PM
The D1 is clean looking.

But on the other hand, I like the "rough" side of your fender flares. I vote to keep them!

Dr. Kustom
2010.08.12, 01:24 AM
Update: After reading many comments from many different forums, I deiced to keep the flares for now and see how it looks.

Got some work done on it tonight, side skirts, rear bumpers and lip spoiler.

Flares are too much... Otherwise clean lines.

Always amazed at DrK's work. Quicktype isn't the easiest
stuff to work with and takes a crapload of time, care, and
effort to smooth out without breaking it off or into pieces
when working on the finer parts.

Top notch.

Thanks for the compliment, parts!

Update: Did a lot sanding and smoothing out on the putty. Sprayed on a light cost of white primer just to see where I need to put more work into it.
