Well, I thought I would have a quick look at Ben's parts list and prices for a few things like Carbon Fiber Flares, Windscreen Cowl and Bonnet.

Instead I find a very pressing request from an international visitor. So I'll wait for that to be cleared first.....

 

Dear Nayef,

I am really interested to see your C110. Do you have a picture that you could share with us?

How many miles / kilometers has it done? I think it must be very unique to require "tow mirrors". Or do you mean JDM style fender mirrors, just like the ones on the white gtr in the photo you attached ?

The owner of the white gtr would be very pleased to know you are admiring his car.

Now - are you based in UAE ? Because the white gtr has Qld rego and plates. Maybe you spotted it while on holidays at the Gold Coast ? Or did you have a friend send the photo to you?

What engine have you got in your C110. The original one or something modified?

I guess you're the only guy with an old Skyline in the UAE. In fact in the UAE you can get a new GTR for half what we pay in Australia. Our government is taxing the life out of us, while yours doesn't even want tax.

I wish we had shiver loads of oil like you guys. No, instead we have uranium, iron ore and coal. And a freakin’ government that can't even insulate a house. WTF hey !

 

Wishing you all the best with your project and good luck with your search for parts.

Regards,

Scottz

Yeah, it does seem suss, but he could be legit.

These old Skylines are huge over there.

A guy I bought a car off was sending them over there as his source of income, what would be worth $5-10K here is selling for $30k+ there.

1. Not available, except for used genuine GT-R, which is double the price.

5. Watanabes don't get much cheaper with age.

6. Full twin system is $1100 in mild steel, $1800 full stainless

Would be good to remove the roof skin to replace with carbon fibre, rather than an overlay

yours in the wannabe s30!! ;D

Pfft, what ever man.

Go sell some more viagra

i have removed the majority of the roof skin and only left about 100 mm around the perimeter so i have somewhere to adhere the carbon fibre skin

Restored don't do steel repair panels, but they can supply the following parts you need:

Fibreglass rear apron ($283) and rear panel ($472). Attached pic is a carbon rear panel.

Fibreglass complete front guards $1070 pair.

Those are normal GT-R rear flares for the GC10

Hey Ben, another question re the carbon bonnets, do you know if they are full carbon or with a FRP frame?

 

You can order FRP, carbon on FRP or full carbon from Restored. As for the other mob, still waiting for confirmation, probably just carbon over FRP.

Ok I just got two bonnets in, one is a full carbon 240Z bonnet from restored (on the right side of the pic, $1750), the other is an Aerodesu carbon-over-FRP bonnet ($960).

Aerodesu is now the Otomoto brand for carbon parts I have found from suppliers other than Restored.

The Restored bonnet is extremely light at only 4.59kg, but also noticeably more flexible than the other bonnet, with only one thin layer of FRP used to help the single layer of carbon keep its shape.

The carbon frame is well finished with threads in place for the bonnet latch and long bolts supplied to suit the thick hinge mounts. Along the edges there is perhaps more resin than needed, but overall a very good bonnet.

The Aerodesu bonnet weighs 5.91kg and thanks to two thicker layers of fibreglass behind the carbon it is noticeably more rigid.

The fibreglass frame is painted matt black which helps the appearance, though some of the edges are a bit sharp. It doesn't have any threads for the bonnet latch so you will need to use bolts. The hinge mounts are still fibreglass, but a bit thinner than on the Restored bonnet so you can use the normal bolts. The carbon surface looks just as good as the Restored bonnet as they are both hand-laid, but arguably better at the edges with less excess resin. Hope this extra info helps people make a decision  :D

Another part I just got in is a Restored FRP rear hatch. I got this because I wasn't happy with the locally-made hatch I have on my car now.

It has all threads pre-fitted to the fibreglass and a very good black gelcoat finish on the outside. The frame has no coating but like the bonnet in my last post it has all of the bolt threads pre-fitted.

The hatch weighs just 2.83kg. When I remove the other hatch I will weigh it for comparison, but I am sure already that this one is much lighter.

A standard steel hatch without the window or rubber is 8.91kg
