The sprues and what's in the box. What's not shown is a Nissan Pathfinder pamphlet that also was in the box (thanks ScaleCentral :) )

The body. Unfortunately there's no detachable hood... But then again there's also no engine as well.

The rest of the sprues.

Paints I'll use for the body. I already masked off the area I'm going to paint before I posted this. I'm going to paint it two tone. Either Metallic Grey (XF-56) or German Grey (XF-63) on top and Dark Sea Grey (XF-54) or Neutral Grey (XF-53) on the bottom. But I'm not sure which at this point. I'll have to make some paint chips right now.

I'll be watching this, I love this kit and turned one into a 3-door model in the past (since that's my favorite style).

Thanks. And cool. If I was able to convert this into a '89 Truck SE V6, I'd do that but I can't.

A new paint job. I had to mix the paint on the upper half myself.

Yeah a truck might be a bit tougher to do, though if you're not too worried about scale, you could find one of the old 1/20 Lindberg Nissan pickup kits.

Here's my 3dr:

I don't have the colors I needed in spray paint. So no I didn't spray it. Also, the top color isn't an actual color for sale; I had to mix it myself. Combination of Gunmetal, Silver, Gloss Black, and some grey.
