thought i should put up a build thread,
just an advanced warning it won't be updated very often.
back ground on the car:
i have owned my skyline for around 7 years now.
car is a 4 door R32 gtst. engine mods are FMIC, 3" Exhaust, 450cc injectors, walbro fuel pump, link ecu
also have whiteline adjustable sway bars front and rear.
so after having the car for this long i have decided to turn it into a play car.

stage 1 get the car in the garage, minus some interior:




started on sound deadening, boot was first:




interior stripped out:



sunroof is going to be filled in.

no pictures for the update at the moment but the car is back on wheels with all the suspension in and subframe locked.
gearbox is in with drive shaft made :D
just in the process of replacing brake booster and master cylinder.
sunroof plug is being made up at the moment from fibreglass.
