Excellent work mate

Thanks for all the replies. They really do keep me motivated.
Yeah, one Calais wagon to add. It still has the engine out and I couldn't be bothered pushing it out of the shed for this shoot.
Black car will be tackled over most of January so I'll post some updates as I go.

You can still get them from Nissan. Ask for P/No. 22450B4925.
They were about $30 per set about 3 years ago when I bought my last.

Thanks Steff. You're not wrong there. Looking back on all of mine though I really have spent far too much compared to what they're actually worth. Even the Gold one, which I was determined to be a wreckers special (ie, use none of my new stock and only what I could pick up second hand), started to cost a bomb when you're replacing weeping welsh plugs etc, and it still needs the bumpers painted at the very least.

Yeah, true. I always keep looking at the outgoings without really thinking that they're a little asset in themselves. Not that they'll ever appreciate much but once all the major work is done I don't see me spending much on them over the next 10-20 years.

Very eager to see this unfold.
Shoot up some information on what it is, I think I've missed it.

X2 I really like your car Steve. Is this the original paintwork/body kit it came with. Looks advanced for its time if it was.
