Sunday evening drive out........ don't mind if I do. Put some fuel in ready for the Gaydon on the 7th and checked out the breakfast spot for our Znowdonia day out.

 

Rather close that was

This evening a little bit of Gaydon prep. Sanding marks on the rear bumper from a previous repair and a couple of RDS on the passenger lower door.

 

3000 wet sanding

Along with the club meet yesterday she had her MOT straight after, made sense as the garage was on the way back home. 

 

Less a windscreen chip (that's been there ever since I've had the car) and oddly a missing nut and bolt from the drives side downpipe a clean bill of health. Even asked the tester anything to look out for over the next 12 months, said not a thing and made a comment of her being really clean and tidy underneath - not bad for 92k

 

Happy days 😁

You could eat off that underbody, how is it so clean/rust free?

The first picture I ever took of her was up on a ramp with the selling company, so got to see the underside up close *see first page. Spent most of her life as a UK daily driver and to be fair it is very clean.

That drone shot is awesome! Car is really looking the finished part now, wheel colour sets it apart! Also loving the window decals, very simple but clean 😎

Nice one pal. This is the 3rd colour I've had them in and I'm now pleased 🤗

Some smaller changes I've had my eye on for a while. Swapped out the I4N boot divider for a OEM Nissan item and fitted the facelift steering wheel controls.

Had years of residue I set about prior to install. Do very much prefer the writing on the switches rather than the surround.

Also bought a couple of Nismo oil filters for when the time comes 😍

All looks good, but I feel you ought to know that the Nissan Dealer supplied boot divider leaves the emergency boot release in the boot area rather than the cabin. This means that in the event of a total power failure you can unlock the car with the key, but you cant get into the boot.

I got caught by this and think its worth others knowing (I had a jump start pack in the boot but couldnt get to it!!!)

Nice! And there's even a Solar Orange one!

 

Cheers pal

 

She was rather tasty, followed for a good stretch.

Well you can tell she's been on a roadtrip 😅
