Nipped / Tucked


May 12, 2013 2:02 PM

I’ve had my R33 Skyline since 2001. The car was made in 1994. For a few years now, I’ve been contemplating about getting a new car. Then I decided to put the money towards a deposit for a plot of land in 2009. And now, I’ve decided to finally start building on it. So there will be no new car for me in the foreseeable future. What’s a guy to do? The front and rear bumpers were damaged and cracked anyway so I decided on the next best thing – a nip/tuck.

Before (when it was brand new and wasn’t damaged and cracked):

After:

I’m pretty chuffed with it. Not bad for a car that’s almost 20 years old. :mrgreen:

    Good move, Moo. Sensible prioritizing in light of the fact that Skylines are renowned for lasting for decades – an almost diesel-like longevity. Just keep it regularly serviced and inspected for future issues; plus the the occasional cosmetic upgrade, as shown, and you can’t go wrong.
