    A couple of things have been happening with this.

    One i got it all road ready but then a seal connecting to the master cylinder perished so it leaked fluid whenever i pumped the brake so until nissan call me to let me know the parts in it wont be going anywhere.

    Anyway heres a couple of pictures when i got it out of the unit.




    I also bought some advans from craig western (euro sbd) with a load of awesome stickers (cheers boss) and got bored at work so decided to give them a quick paint.



    I also got a wooden steering wheel from a mate for a cheap price, so i sprayed the centre white as it was a dreary satin black.



    So until i get the tyres for the advans and get my week off at christmas in which ill fix my broken seal no major updates will happen.

    Ill keep you posted

    Ive got a couple of updates on this.
    1st being that the brakes now actually stop the car.

    Another being, i bought some new wheels, some of you guys may have seen them as i bought them off a chap on here called heath.

    13 x 8 wellers



    And 13 x 10 steel's.




    Got them at a bargin price cheers heath

    But theyre the wrong pcd and bore so theyre at work getting custom adapter plates made up to suit the bore and the new pcd.

    I 'attemped' a trial fit on the c32 to see how much poke i was looking at.



    Im gonna need some polycarbonate sheets

    But while these are being made to suit the advans will be wrapped in new rubber and it'll get preped for MOT.

    I didnt intend to buy wheels like this and in turn make polycarbonate arches to cover them but i recon im being lured down the shakotan route, we'll have to see

    IMO i think if you fit those wheels it will ruin the looks, get some rims that fit a stock rolled arch and this will be awesome....

    To be fair a couple of people have said this to me, another option i had was giving the advans to my mate at the engineering shop and he'de see if it was possible to machine up a slightly larger lip.

    Its not costing anything to get the adaptors made anyway so we'll see how it goes.

    Well its been a long while since i updated this so i thought i'd post a small progress report.

    My daily driver MA7O packed up fairly unexpectedly sometime in july so i had to get this mot worthy.
    It went in and came straight back out again with 4 red sheets of fails and one sheet of advisaries, nearly all to do with a electrical problem causing the lights to not work.

    So with that all adressed it was out on the street and all was good, was still one of the nicest cars i had ever driven, but it was missing something, so i took it to the unit and got the advans on it.




    It came down alot more then i anticipated so i had to raise the front my 15mm and then i set about driving it home down 15miles of cambered country roads, funnily enough it was fine, caught a couple of things but nothing major.



    And this is how she sits and the moment, im currently searching for wider wheels, maybe some SSR mk1's or something along the oldschool lines, other then that my friend is itching to give it a respray so im going to let him when he has the time and i should be making some spacers at work for the new wheels when i get them.

    Its being used as my daily and it really is class.

    Cheers mate, but seeing it everyday shows you its far from lalalalalalala, hence new wheels.

    Ha me too mate, yeh i do like it alot, like i said its one of the comfiest cars ive ever driven too, it just needs the bodywork looked at now, as although shes fairly clean theres minimal areas of rot showing and the paint work is just terrible.
