ABC Hobby: Nissan 180SX Type-X - dorifto - 01-03-2014

Thought I'd put up my Nissan 180SX work in progress

Unfortunately I wasn't aware that it didn't come with the light buckets so I'm currently sorting out aftermarket ones.
ABC Hobby now uses a 3 piece mould for more accurate polycarbonate bodies; very impressed so far.

Post trimming. The ABC Hobby 180sx's don't come with the rear pods and valance and so I purchased a rear diffuser.
Here it is gauging fit and requirements to get it to work

Wheels are en route from Japan - eta is one week. Still need to sort out final ride height but that can wait.

Body posts drilled (no magnets for me; I'm old school) and body sanded/wheel arches dremelled.

Body washed with dishwashing detergent because it rids the body of contaminants far better than regular soap.

Tamiya R32 GT-R wing arrived interstate thanks to a mate of mine. Wing and mirrors test fitted. Ready for paint soon.

Will update when I can

I went with a custom metallic green as I didn't want to follow the trend and have a white/blue Nissan. It's a mix of four Tamiya paint cans and the coats turned out even which I'm satisfied with, and the colour is just what I was after :) Probably not everyone's taste but that's fine
