    ive got goosbumps on how its going to finish up :D should look shweet as :zlove:

    nose had those two original holes for the badge. bar had cracks, chips etc etc. bonnet had couple of dints. gaurd had a dint. bar didnt line up 100%

    well thats all changing now :D:D:D

    whole front end is getting redone and we are almost there. i cant believe how much good work this guy has done in only one day. i gave it to him at middday and he rang me at about 9pm telling me to come this morning to check it out....

    everything is 100% now :cool2::cool2::cool2:

    still needs to block it back more and prime it more, few more lil things to get perfect still. but it will be all 100% cant wait :cool::cool:


    check out this line. factory fit? :D (yes i know there is a peel as mentioned it still needs to be blocked back and more work)

    duuuuuude, that alignment is mint. mine is still out by a little bit after that late night animal incident. if i ever take the car off the road for a respray, i'm gonna get this guy to realign everything for me as well.

    cant wait to see the end product.

    tell us more Pat lmaoooooooo

    tech is easy,ill find it
    But it is simply getting a rod of the same screw thread,joining them with 2 nuts so its extended and screwing a nut on the longer thread as the adjustment

    tech is on 300zxclub under how to's,if you can find it,let me know and i will

    looks good mate - i always hate seeing a car with a bodykit and it hasn't been done properly. I'm in the process of doing mine myself - it takes forever eh with a lot of bogging and sanding. Even the best made kits can require a bit of lining up.

    looking really good - can't wait to see the finished result!

    ye the rest of my car is looking sweet its just the front end with chips, cracks and lining up that was making the overall look degraded. now thats all changing.

    but get ur car to a pro man. as mentioned before i gave it to him yesterday midday and i just took those pics today. so much work done in a day :eek:.

    are you only getting the front half done ?? :confused:

    yep. the car was previously sprayed already. just the front needed redoing from few dints and bar/nose etc.... colour has been matched ill prob take the car to someone like final inspection to polish the rest of the car to look new like the front.

    i dont want to do the rest of the car yet. once i get the side skirts and rear bar then i will redo the whole entire vehicle. too much plans for that atm. side skirts + molded into body, rear bar +molded to body, remove door handles, gaurd indicators, rear reflectors, weld up hole where old wiper use to be on boot, relocate fuel filler and close fuel filler door, arggg too much. but once i get a rear bar and side skirts then i will go and do all those at the same time and respray the whole car a nice black with a blood cherry pearl or flake..... cant wait till i get the skirts and rear bar :eek:
