    Hoodedreeper's K11 v3

    Thank you :) Its nice to back! Unfortunately this one wont be to the same standard as the previous build, as the R34 will take priority.This isnt to say everything will be bodged because it wont be, it just wont have as much money ploughed into it. We're off to a great start (not). Failed the...

    Chris' R34 Skyline GTT Series 2

    Awhile back when the bumper got repaired due to a paint defect, I wanted to cut the bumper and open it up but the bodyshop wanted too much money (I thought they were painting the whole bumper under warranty, but they werent) So i decided to go ahead with it now.

    Chris' R34 Skyline GTT Series 2
