This was a curb side kit, so i opened up the hood, built an engine bay, gutted all the molded floor pan from the chassis and boxed the chassis. The engine is a BMW DOHC 4cyl. and probably slightly de-tuned.. Fabricated the exhaust from solder too.
"1976 BMW M12/7 F1 engine. The block is a 1,5L M10, as used in the 1500, and of the same design as the 2,0L in the 2002, with a bespoke DOHC head design. 1380HP in max tune. 27 hours between refreshes. Don't put this in your daily driver. ""
I like the skyline front nose, so i made one from a GTX grill, which i narrowed, and flipped upside down, then extended the hood to match. I also removed the bumpers and opened up the front vents and put mesh behind them. ( cheers Lowlife)
Wheels are Aoshima 14" Star Sharks.
Not my best work, but not a real good kit either..

stitchdup: Hey guys, you dont have to start with a curbside kit, you can just glue the hood down and save the engine for something else
