So, I finally got around to getting the replacement boot/ducktail spoiler for my C110 from Yahoo! Auctions Japan (cheers Ewan! (http://www.hayatonka.com/)), not long before finding out that I need to get a new job. Probably for the better in that who the hell knows when I would have been able to afford it if I didn’t dive right in when the Yen was at horrific 60 to a single NZD woes.
Here’s a quick preview of it on it’s own, taped in place for the time being.
The difference between the appropriate spoiler and the GMH Torana GTR-XU1 version that was on there, is IMMENSE. You’d not think it would be all that bad having a slightly different one on there but having now sat the proper one on, I can safely be disgusted by myself for keeping the other on there for so long.
More pictures in the coming days, including one or two of the rest of the FRP taped in place and the SSR Longchamp XR4′s on as well. It gives a decent glimpse of what will be the temporary “end” result (until the appropriate wheels are found and bought, not to mention the oodles of rust repair that still need done). Still, it’s nice to see things somewhat taking shape, provides good motivation to continue along the replica 110GT-R route.
Again, huge thanks goes out to Ewan @ Hayatonka for all his assistance in attaining these bits and bobs for me. Now, if I can get myself another job to be able to pay for the rust and engine work, I’ll finally be living with the copious amounts of awesome that a 110GT-R replica provides.
