I am one of the import fans here (or a fan of imports), so keep building and posting!

Current updates. Rebuilt my Nismo powerbrace to make it look more realistic. Finished off my front brakes, detailed the front and rear subframes, built a fuel cell, started on my roll cage, and I GOT MY ORIGINAL CHROME STAGGERED MEISTERS!!!! The look SOOO sick! It took buying two sets of Gartimers to get them, but it was worth it. Oh and alot more filler and sanding for the bodywork. Anyway, thats where Im at. Its in final primer. I plan to shoot the paint (blue spoon) this week hopefully. I originally planned on black, but I just thought it would look too boring.

i had a 240 hatchback painted with that blue. i love that color. how are you going to work that spoon into the build though
with it being a rice burner you can almost be sure that spoon is part of a spoiler

Hopefully this one registers just a tad higher than the average rice burner, LOL. The spoon, (if you were serious) is just to show you plans for the final color.

Brandon, looks great dude!
I'm a long time fan of imports myself, and being a previous owner of a fixed up 240sx hatch (long list of mods, owned from 2000-2006) I always enjoy a well done build of one.
Keep up the great work my friend. Where about in NC do you live?

Gray, I live in Burlington. Im about 3 hours from Charlotte. Thanks for the reply I currently own an 89 240SX coupe that I plan to build, but the current economy has kept that from happening, lol. So I build it the only way I can... in plastic.

Heres an update. Got the color shot on. No clear yet, waiting on it to cure before I go any further. In the front shot you can also see the GTR grill I made. The paint has a few small imperfections, but nothing major so Im happy with it. After the clear and wet sand, they prolly wont even be noticeable. Thanks for looking!

Your killing it Brandon!!! You know I'm on board for this build. So sick. I'll be using it as a blueprint for one of my builds! KUTGW bro!!!
Thank you sir! Im honored! I should have an update sometime this weekend. Ive gotten a little bit done, but I wanted to compile a tad more before I update it again. Its getting close to the finish line. Ive got to do the decals, clear and polish it, finish up the engine and bay, and the interior.... actually that is alot, LOL. Thanks for looking.

Thanks for the comments, guys! A small in progress update. Did some work on the motor, finished up the scratchbuilding on the turbo side of the exhaust, scratchbuilt a new intake manifold, throttle body, and radiator. Also shot on the final coats of color a few days ago, so this is the final color before its cleared. Just gotta finish up the mods before I shoot the clear on. Anyway, thanks for checking her out!
