Thanks everyone, the things I’m struggling to get are the original decals that are throughout the car. I’ve manage to track two down on EBay but the rest are obsolete at Nissan too, if any one has any pictures an dimensions of what they should be like that would be greatly appreciated as I’ll get them made up locally.

The other two items I’ve not decided how to tackle is the fuel tank and rear box heat shields I’m not sure mine are salvageable an there not available from Nissan either.......any ideas??

That is an unbelievable rebuild. That engine bay looks better than when they came from the factory!! I love the grey colour too. Are all the parts fitting into the engine bay in the last 2 pictures brand new or did you just refurbish them?

The way I see it with your petrol tank heat shield. It is not an integral part of the car and it is easily replaceable. I would clean your original one up and get it painted, mine didn't look the best either but it seemed sturdy enough so I just cleaned it up and fitted it. Although your rebuild is going into a lot more detail than mine

In the engine bay pictures there’s one brake pipe with masking tape on which I’m making from new, all the other items I’ve refurb’d whilst the rebuilds been going on.

As I say I’m not sure what to do with the two heat shields I might see if I can get them chemicaly treated an either regalvanise them or chrome them with the intercooler shroud which needs doing.

I asked a company about getting the heat shields re galvanised and he said they were too thin. They would badly warp with the heat of the galvanising.

I’ve managed to get a few more hours on the car between the F1 an World Cup.  The ridged brake pipes are made an fitted, I’ve also carried on with the engine bay rebuild an got most of the wiring looms installed in the car.

Hi all so I’ve been a slack git over August an done very little on the GTiR but went to the local car show the other weekend to see what was about.  To end up seem a immaculate original Sunny GTi an spent ages talking to the owner, which got me straight home an under the car and continue with refitting all the refurbished parts.

Prop shafts fitted.

Car is looking absolutely immaculate. I tried to restore my car to this standard but never stripped the engine bay.
Are you going to fit the fuel tank without the heat shield / harness thing? What underseal did you use? it looks a nice matte black shade.

No I’m going to fit the fuel tank to rear differential shield once I decide how I’m going to restore it. The underneath of the car was primed and then Upol Raptor coated which was tinted with the exterior paint base coat so it looks as factory as possible.

Hi all so after many weeks of long days at work an then evening's putting off working in the garage i've got my arse in gear today.  Before work this morning I installed the Whiteline bush kit into the rear subframe, luckily I had access to a plant bearing an bolt puller kit so installing them was a breeze.

I also managed to leave work at a reasonable time and get lots done this evening, I got the subframe, diff and rear suspension links all installed.

So I got stuck in again tonight an fitted the rear drive shafts, hubs assemblies and the rear brakes with new discs an pads. The right went on without a problem but when I came to fit the left hand disc I found it was rubbing the brake calliper bracket. So after a quick check on a old rear hub I found I’d mixed up one of the fronts with a rear. So after stripping both hubs of the assemblies and swapping to the correct position the disc went on without any further trouble.

Yeah it had me scratching my head at first but I have a spare rear hub which I measured up to work out what was wrong, the difference was minimal but there never the less.

this is a top draw rebuild and very impressive!
One photo you put up caught my eye. Im replacing my rear brake lines and thought they extended all the way to the master cylinder, but your pic shows they dont get that far and finish at the part circled blue. Im just wondering what it is?

Thanks for the comments.
It’s the brake proportioning valve, I’ve just had a look at the parts manual and they list it as only fitted with abs. This is a bit odd as mines not got abs, so I’m guessing it’s either missing off the non-abs parts catalogue or there’s some crossover between the non-abs an the abs models.

amazing work bud.. thinking I might go the same route and fit the whiteline rear subframe bushes, and poly everything else.

Pretty sure those proportioning valves come in ABS and non-abs ones. When I removed ABS from one of my old pulsars, I swapped to over to a non-abs one.
