+1 on the super white idea. Best colour imo for it
even TRD used that color when unveiling their 2000gt !

Didnt get much chance to do much on this till today due to work and other peoples cars.
Got old rev 2 turbo out.. Engine is now goin to be broke for bits and pieces.. So a few parts for sale. Starters, air flow metres distributor etc..
I have a few bits to do to rev 3 turbo before it goes in and few other bits inc spraying engine bay
Engine block and sand blasting subframe, hubs etc and ready for paint
A few pics of progress today.

nice to see some progress, you should be finished in no time using a lift,
i had to use pallets

its normal for a shed to be dirty lol
the shed is for work
not for show
if you dont like what you see

Thanks lads.
Nice ryme spla!!! Lol.
Ya engine swap is handy. The lift is a gift.
Slowest part is gonna be the prep for the paint.
Want to have it flawless...
I was surprised how clean underneath is compared to alot of my breakers but Im gonna re shultz the lot and repaint everything on the running gear..

Good to see one of these rare motors being brought back to life
From looking at some pics ... white or red would be the best colours to show the lines, I saw pics of a red one recently ... awesome it was , I must try to find them again
Keep up the good work
