Shell strip begins

Silvia Shell

I rolled the shell out that will be turned into a true 'brenspec' Silvia on Saturday. Started out by removing the headlights, front and rear bumpers, side skirts and cleaning out the interior. The front Nissan Aero Sport bar has certainly seen better days, so I'm afraid I won't be using it. Has had too many hits and there's too much bog on it for my liking. The side skirts likewise have taken a couple of hits, and removing them wasn't too easy and have torn a chunk away from inside the door sill area. Once the skirt were removed, a hit has been revealed under the body - but this is easily repairable.

Pics of the shell at the end of the session:

- Rear

- Engine Bay
- Hit 1
- Hit 2

Next is to strip the engine bay of everything including the harnesses so it can all be painted at the same time. Aiming to send it off in about 2 weeks if I've managed to get everything done that needs to be done by then.
