I was going to drop a chevy LS1 in this bigboy but i changed my mind and bought a Skyline R32 with a RB26DETT.

Here is the fender flairs

They would be great for a kit bash because the car can be built with or without.
I already cut the hood out wile watching a football game

You should have got Tamiya's R32. Fully detailed RB26.

Yes i know. Did not find out this was one of those fake 1/2 engins till i opened it. I have a plan though. The valve cover from the Rb will fit on the kit engine and all the other stuff will fit too. So it is just gonna look like a RB. I also have some resin turbos and intercooler on the way.

Great idea for a build! If you (by chance) don't have a use for the lower front chin spoiler (airdam) please let me know. I want to make a replica of my 1:1 G-nose Datsun and that airdam matches perfectly.

I hear that! I bought a Fujimi universal fender flare kit and to say that they are hard to work with is an understatement. They are thin, full of flash, and need to be shapped/molded and custom fit to each aplication. I guess that is what custom building is all about :P . I'm a little surprised that the flares suplied with the kit were tempermental, but not really. As jbwelda pointed out, you nailed. Keep up the good work,it's looking good!

Great progress! If it were me, I would go with the kit decals or some aftermarket BRE decals. Never liked the Calsonic livery.
