See here's the thing. For the last 20 years R31s have been exclusively owned by people who only frequent Centrelink, the cheesecake shop and the bottle-o. Most of them can't even spell teeth, let alone say the word, let alone have more than 30% of their originals.

It hasn't led to R31s being very well looked after, for the most part.

yeah na like apprently the 1st owner was a complete junga, like theirs so many random things the car came with (no crack pipes 😢) such as silhouette tail light garnishes and a f**king street poll for an exhaust tip, but the junkie kept a really nice interior which is wot kinda sold me

Fark she is a vlean old girl

Nice score

Hahaha yeah man lean indeed, just gotta ignore the roof and rust spots in the body and boot, all that stuff is bound to empty my wallet sooner or later.

PS. (Don't have to answer this) but has anyone gotta trick to dealing with rust bubbles/rust in general, or are we all paying the cars weight in gold to get it fixed at the body shop

Wire wheel and converter, then throw on some paint and bondo, finish with a nice rattle can finish.

Don't worry about the exterior, just give it a cut and polish.

That patina look is in, just need some wide steel rims painted black to finish the look.

yeah cheers guys I think I got a good idea how imma tackel it, but should i do the whole panel (when dealing with the rust spots) or just rattle can the parts that need it and hope it blends nicely.

 

yeah na was thinking about chasing down some rims with decent offset (still decided about colour), but for now i figure its cheaper to hunt down some ti hubcaps and roll with those for now

Depends how far you want to go with the car. Just do the spots if the rest of it looks ok, you'll know as you rub back how far you'll need to go anyway. Keep up the posts. Give her a nice detail and keep it clean, they're a really reliable car if it's in good order.
