Also boys take a look at the rear seam that runs down the back, notice it all matches up. Also the back skirts all hand made with a cool arch and rounded around the back as it should from the factory, whole new level.

I removed the bed hooks with cash. duh. lol

Yeah the wheel arches are a thing of beauty.

Now you just need to take a sledge hammer to both bed corners so it can be a real 521😛

Little video. Just waiting on water pump, going to change all the bolts for the front and waiting on Aussie land to send me some billet cam covers that go on the top of head on both sides.

I think it's interesting that Atsugi had their name cast in the timing cover. I know they have made timing components for decades, but seeing that cast into the cover makes me wonder if Nissan had them make all their covers or only the ones for limited run motors.

I just got these billet head cam bolt covers. They take the place of the shitty half moon rubbers. These are for an RB26 hope they fit. Fingers crossed.

Paint it red and do the cab also.  You know after the bed is done you will be tearing it down again to do the cab.  Just do it all now.

Same color? What are you thinking? My vote is for Millenium Jade metallic. I've also really contemplated painting my roadster with Midnight Purple II (LV4), but it would be stupid expensive.
