joined a little while ago, haven't got round to doin an introduction.

I've had a soft spot for r32's since gran turismo 2 also wanted one since then. bought one 2 years ago, never had it running mint for too long. Always plagued with little problems but never the less Still my favorite car ever. I've also managed to pick up a bumper mould for r32 gtr. Has the grill and bottom lip too!!
Once I have enough money to buy more materials I might give you enthusiasts a good deal for one
(I work with fibreglass n carbon fibre n all that bs)


The back right also has a bit of a repair where a lady from tokoroa with no insurance hit me. (YAY!)

Also have just painted/ powder coated alot of parts in my engine. il try get some pics.

having trouble uploading pics ill try get some up later

Hey man welcome to SDU.Thats awesome about your love for R32s despite the problems but skylines are super awesome.

Would it cool if you could make those gtr bumpers in carbon fibre or fibre-glass.Plastic ones are getting hard to find nowadays.

I reckon I could make a carbon fibre one, be very expensive, its about $50 per sqm of materials. I make em out of cheaper stuff, haven't quite finished my first one trying to get my car running first. I have 3 partial ones ive picked up cheap as well, prob going to flip off as is

Hey welcome! I know what you mean about R32s, they are a pain but oh so worth it. Im up to my 4th one :D

Ive been looking for someone to make me a grille, searched for nearly 2 years and one guy I found said it just wouldnt be worth making it when I could buy them for that much.

I reeeeaaallly want a GTR grille *hint hint*

Also who powdercoated your stuff? Was it the powdercoaters in silverdale?

I got my brother who works at a place in silverdale, powdercoating is one of the things they do. Im yet to make any grills from the mould, when i get more materials ill make one and see how it turns out. Not much work to it, should be cheap as!
