Well some of you may or may not remember me, (eco swapped 2ndgen bagged)
3 years ago i purchased my first RHD car and unfortunately at that point things just kind of fell apart with the cavy and with life in general,

3 years later and this is my other toy:
it's a 1992 Nissan Gloria,
Lowered on Insurance Group Coilvers.
Aftermarket rear upper control arms
footwork is Rays Arthur Exchange 19X10+10 rear and 19X9+25 front, wrapped in michelin tires
3" stainless exhaust,
full stereo, Autopage RS1100 Remote start/ alarm

Never heard of the car. Looks clean.

Maybe a little boxy for my style, but clean.

Other than retarded camber for the sake of wide wheels and lowness.... cool. Its nice seeing someone doing something totally different, not to mention something of a totally different style. Who else is running around north America Modding old 4 door Japanese luxury sedans? :p

So after a long time coming i finally have an update that is worthy of posting,
the car's Paint and body was LONG overdue for an update, and i decided it was time to address this and update it,
there was a fairly large dent on the Passenger side fender, And the hood,

All sorts of little door dings nicks scratches ect..... I also wanted to get rid of the horrible trailer marker lights they used to get the car through inspection and paint the mirrors so they looked good again.

First coat of paint


Mixing up the first coat of clear
SEM thunder Blue and Stardust gold flake put in the clear.

The paint (Still needs wetsanding at this point but am waiting to let the car harden, paint shrink and really assess the job that was done


A mostly re-assembled picture of the car under some Best Buy lighting (it's been poor weather since getting it back)


and lastly onto the next set of mods:
I was supposed to get a completely re-assembled Car back from paint, however since i didn't i took the opportunity to order up some suede and start the update to the interior,
The plans are: A. B C Pillar re- cover, Headliner, Door cards and handles, Seats and console,
The old tired nissan "tweed" from the 90's ...

and the new, I'm also replacing every broken clip and fastener as i go so as to not have any rattles or poorly fitting panels in the end of all this.


Next on the to do list will be the trunk (torn on weather to bag the car or not) and some VIP like accessories.

Comments, Questions, ideas are all more than welcome!
