Haha, I think we both know the answer to that question. Maybe they get pleasure form seeing something shitty come out better than new?

Progress has been slow becuase the media blaster has been backed up with a large commercial job. There were a few more areas that needed work once the ass end was off. Here's some more progress shots from before it went off. The car arrived back last week so it should start moving now.

The rear end has been fully repaired and is back together, firs the boot floor had to be welded back into place

Then the inner and outer beaver panels could be reattached

Once that was done the 1/4 panels were temporarily fitted to line up the tail light panel

The end result is a slightly more compete rear profile!

The right hand sill was pretty much gone so it was far quicker to have an entire replacement section made.

And the old sill removed with the inner tidied up ready for the section to be welded in place.

As much as I appreciate the car (she's going to be amazing) I read through this whole thing and gotta say; I appreciate your dedication and patience more so! Pulling out stuff you purchased near decades ago, I wouldn't even remember I had that stuff!

Thanks mate! It's funny you say that becuase when I pulled out old boxes to catalogue I found things I'd forgotten about. It's all in a spreadsheet now ;)

The LH side was in better condition so the sill was repaired along with lower A pillar, B pillar and dog leg inner. All ready to weld back together!

Cheaper to do repairs/new parts locally than getting repro parts in from Japan?

AH true most the ones I know are Hako parts. These guys do side steps and some chrome bits for kenmeri - http://www.n-classiccar-jp.com/parts2.html but not much else. Could be something on Yahoo but seems like you have the sides sorted already

That's awesome! So much Hako stuff about in general, they are much better in terms of parts than the C110.

The rust replacement sections have been welded to the 1/4 panels and fit perfectly. Looking awesome.

The wheel tubs have been modified by manufacturing a new outer tub as per the genuine GTR. Once the flares are bolted on they will easily fit the deep dished Hayashi Racing wheels.

These photos with the 1/4 panel fitted show the volume of material to be cut away for the new tubs.
