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: No but it looks pretty decent, not sure about ordering from poland though cos that would be pricey

DeeCee: That stuff looks impressive, but a trip to Bunnings will get a good set up mate, and left over money for model kits.

mmthrax: I use old executive desks. Lots of drawer space and no clutter up top. They also lock to keep kids away from the blades, chemicals etc. They are also super cheap.

coyotecrunch: A bench set up like this would require me to be organized. Right now, I have my acoustic Ovation on the bench getting some new strings. Someday I will put away these guitars and start smelling the glue again, oh how I do miss those head rushes

RetroSpectKustoms: I'll post up some pics of my new set up. I am the same as mmthrax, I use an old "Roll top" desk. and have a bunch of draws. I just use some old wooden wine boxes for paint storage, they work insanely well.
