Every gtr owner paints over rust

90% off owners say they just painted it cause they wanted to the other 10% tell the truth cause they had too paint over it

LOL

Painting over rust? wtf are you talking about Benny? The only rust on that car was in the spare wheel well, a small section of surface rust which I showed the owner at purchase time. That was left unpainted. There was also surface rust on the strut brace I think? 

My towers were just the factory paint, the guards and Bonnet I had re-done because they had been done poorly in my opinion, Silver needs to be done a certain way, oh they were also fibreglass, so definitely full of rust lol

Plus the front bumper was black, and fibreglass.... so I had it colour matched. The boot was also black, which I also had colour matched. Previous owner had them painted black because he liked it that way, not my taste but OK. The difference was I personally inspected the car and I actually know what rust, painted rust, and crash damage are, which is why I bought this and not one of the many others I looked at. How did you personal inspection go Benny? I also didn't claim it was pristine, despite being a lot cleaner than this example.

I have this one on hand of the bay, the others are on a drive, but I'll dig around and see if I can find something better.

Here's something odd for you Benny, an actual engine number that didn't cost me an extra few grand to get.

Found my inspection folder, here' some of the pics I posted in my build thread where I was whinging about things that needed love. Not a grade 4.5, not pristine, just another old jap car. 

But shit, Fatz was right, I did remove the radiator supports, clean up the surface rust and paint them black. 

You f**king got me Fatz lol

Can find some pretty nice cars for cheap when you inspect them yourself.

Dan, small things amuse small minds. I'll make you an offer, you pay for a camera crew and a hoist and you can go nuts, form an opinion & post your panel gap inspection on SAU. I personally think you are a moron so it would be best to get a panel beater to make comment. The whole car has a ground-up rebuild by a GT-R specialist, with full history and the paint HAS NOT BEEN TOUCHED. There is no rust through seams, DONE. Everything underneath barely even has a speck of dust on it.

Anyway, go have a fap over this one mate - guarantee you'd think it was immaculate because it's repainted and re-seamed. People like you are the reason tarted up and slapped together cars sell for 100k+ , this sold for 130k : )

Keen to post anything but actual decent photos of your own pristine car, very telling. 

Avoided Micko's post of your actual car, also very telling. 

Anyway, I'm done, I think everyone is well aware you're going out of your way to make the car out to be something it's not, who knows why, resale maybe? street cred? I can't work out if you're genuinely that deluded or your just special needs, either is fine, you do you mate. 

""Love your car, it's yours and you will make it awesome, but please stop trying to make it out to be some rare gem."

A bit of rust converter and some paint and she'll be apples mate. Also please post more stupid videos of you dancing, they are f**king hilarious :D

Dan, as I said, bring your camera crew if you want to see it sooner. Any time you are welcome. I'm already in talks with a production company about doing a video for it, so again go f**k yourself, you're a 40 year old virgin, go have a fap mate because you sure as f**k won't pull women anytime soon pal

Well, that escalated... can't we all get along?

For what its worth the LM has small rust spots on some things; bonnet strut/holder, the bonnet catch and bracket have surface rust and also a spot about the size of a 10cent coin under the rear glass above the boot, right in the middle. The rust in the rear has been fixed and painted previously, but just knowing it's there hurts. 

If I remember i'll take a picture of it. 

The Silver GTR though... can't see any rust. 😁
It might actually be rust free (except for the brake discs). Cue people telling me to drive them. lol

Also please post some pics of your pristine car, or maybe @Mick_o could post them on your behalf.
