The little things

Tue 15 Apr 2014 10:33:25 PM
So I bought a micra... again. this is my third. i needed a cheap run about so i could take my skyineline off the road as a project car. had the car for a week and I have spent a dumb amount of time in the shed with her. I just want to share my experiences with all the micra peeps.

First thing on the agenda is clean clean clean. it dont look like it has been polished for 20 years. so debadging, cut, polishing and blackinin the trim was first on the agendaa

Im registered but dont go on alot. sad to say skylines are like commodores, everyone has had one, got one and "riced" one. the community for skylines are a bit weird. its all im faster than you, no im faster than you.

I enjoy forums like this, very insightful and awesome people.

I was on years and years ago under the name turtle.

Yep sau is full of dicks that take and take but give nothing back. I just hang around the junk page, and help the occasional person out if the ain't a dick!

honestly my thumb nails, the ones on the boot were the worst, the rear door ones not soo bad. lol just sat on the floor with a few beers and they were off in no time :-P. If they proved to be too stubborn i was gunna use a hair dryer to warm it up a little.

do it Adamadster, it honestly takes 10 years off the ol girl.

one of my previous micras i took off the door bump strips, that took dedication to get all that glue and guk off tho.
