[Closed] R32 Build from shell - What to be careful of ?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I was heavily considering buying a r32 shell (2k ish) and refurbishing it with a rb20de and such. 

What are some things I need to be careful of when buying a shell.

Id be building It to be P plate legal.

 

Thank you for your input and cheers,

I'm more thinking about the replies talking about the bulk $$$ needed to build a car from a bare shell, only to be a p plater car.

Depends how much work and how hands on you are.

"Shell" can mean a lot of different things, from bare (metal with paint) to everything except and engine. Finding things it doesn't come in can end up mega expensive depending on how many things are missing (wiring looms, brake lines, brakes, dash, interior trims, seals, seats, belts etc etc)

I think it's going to be a tough journey

Start from episode 1 and work your way through the playlist... This should give you an idea of what to expect...
