    Nice one, much better. We like!

    I LOVE Skylines, but oh my God those dashboards..... Steering wheel looks like its from a van. How can something so amazing have such an lacklustre interior. They say never meet your heroes! All the effort goes where it matters I guess.

    ha ha yeh they are not the best interiors but in their day they were decent,you have to remember the R33 is an old car now,i have owned seven skylines to date and am considering an R35 at some point ,the pic below is the same one as i did the dash in the above pic,nice car,ran 443 bhp,unfortunatly had an issue and melted a piston,scored the bore and bent the rod so i fell out with it ,had it rebuilt and sold it

    Stunning car Mark

    The A3's not bad either! Haha

    Carbon fibre does look good on the B pillars.

    CF mirror housings next?

    if my A3 were black yes but i think any more such as mirror housing would not look right with the colour of my car,next things to do are lower it slightly,spacers,wheels painted in anthracite and then start looking at uprating things such as clutch,gearbox and brakes ready for the looming turbo or supercharger that seems to be dominating my mind at the moment

    What's this cost you to do?

    Mine are a mess due to the previous owner trying to polish them with somekind of power polisher! I was quoted £18 for each piece of trim, but I quite fancy doing something a bit different to OEM.

    the issue with the pillars is the width,i got this but had to cut mine short on the inner edge,will take a pic for you to see if you want,ideally you need this size
