2nd round of PDR done for the hail that we had here a while back.

Sorry for the potato photos.






Also thanks to Dinna180 again for sending me out this JDM number plate bracket for the back of my car. Absolute legend!



I have 4 days off from Tomorrow, so in these 4 days i really want to aim to have the whole car ready for paint. So that'll mean paint stripping, sanding and priming.

Day 1
Bonnet and JDM guards - paint strip and prime.




Love the sound of paint stripper when its working, sounds like something cooking on a BBQ. Smells like death but.



Water is needed to "Turn off" the paint stripper.






Good fun.

Doors got done too





I've come to the conclusion that i will get my engine bay sprayed at the same time as the car, so everything must go! Also going to throw an engine gasket kit + Brand new front cover/Oil pump too.







Got these aswell, the uber rare, semi pointless optional knee pads.

Haven't been up to much since the last update, literally had hardly any time for anything.

But acquired a couple more parts, and expecting a huge OEM engine based order to come in come next week, also found a 270R Nismo rear bumper so that'll be good when that comes.

Option Nissan Puretron air purifier



Brand new/old stock Nissan optional Emergency flashing light (Purple)




Took my N1 out to Wakefield Raceway for a practise day, so much fun.

Been a while since i've updated this, thread is still semi-broken, i'll get to fixing the rest of it soon.

Figured i'll paint the whole car at once, so the engine came out. Once i took the engine out, i tore it down to get it hot bath'd. Spoke to Brendan @ Pten Developments in NZ and bought every OEM rubber hose for it, ACL Bearings, OEM head bolts, OEM Gasket kit, Front cover/oil pump. Strongly recommend him for parts if you're building anything Nissan related.

Althought i didn't even need to do this, engine had no major problems to begin with. (Had a couple leaks though)






Before

After



The car must of have had a little shunt some time before, the beaver panel was pushed in a tiny bit, so i ordered a brand new panel. Lucky to have this as it was the very last one Nissan had in their inventory with no plans of making another batch.






Slight bog work on Drivers side 1/4 panel, will take this out and re-finish without Bog. Once thats done, it'll be a completely dentless, bogless S-Chassis.



Also completely destroyed my front windscreen getting it out, so have ordered a new one.

I was planning on going Kouki rear bar + Valances, but being a series 1, the sharp edges of the Kouki kit didn't really grow on me. So i sold them both and now have a genuine 270R rear bumper along with the 270R wing on the way, can't go wrong with OEM.



Brand new old stock Nismo floor mats for the N1




Also got a uber-rare first gen ARC oil cap, trail fitted on the N1, but will go on the S14 upon completing the engine!



More pics soon..

Haha nah, i had the opportunity about 2 years ago when i wrecked a VZR, had a basically free SR16VE head at my disposal, ended up piecing together what the rest of it would cost me and was just waay out of my price range for that time.. the head was the cheapest part, honestly.
