Edmund, I'll get the headlights for you, lemme know when. Right now i'm at Trivandrum, will be back in bangy next week.

The autocop costed me around 5k. It's the basic system, alarm goes off if someone tries to open the door/hood or tries start the vehicle when system is armed.

Standard pistons are the way to go during restoration for the utmost Reliability.

Oversized ones are prone to leakages, etc...So, a definite no-no unless u're the experimenting scientist.

The colour is the Nissan Skyline GTR Blue from the DuPont catalogue for Nissan!!!!
It's called Blue PM Effect [Formula: P6755]

Convert the third party insurance to a comprehensive one.

Check the insurance review section on our forum.

Hey Edmund...... Dying to see your car come out of the workshop.

Why don't you post more pics of your car undergoing the painting process.

Anyway hope it comes out great.
