A pair of mildly tuned new Nissans...Nismo Skyline and 350Z Track Edition
Posted by Zoom Zoom on Friday, March 5, 2004 8:39 AM
I built the pair in 8 days while the rest of the world was griping about some new Bonneville kit...Big Smile

The Track Z is stock, except for the paint scheme that is loosely inspired by the old BRE racing paint schemes on Nissans. Paint is a Black Gold mixture of Gamma Gold and Bittersweet Pearl, the black is Tamiya Metallic Black. The interior is a mixture of the gold color and black. Bare metal foil separates the two colors. I cut out a couple of grille bars, and painted the remaining one body color.

The Skyline 350GT Nismo is pretty much OOB, except I cut out the fascia grilles and added black mesh. Paint is Black Gold Majik Blue pearl w/a lot of clear. I started this w/in a day or two of receiving it.
