Thats one thing i was going to say, can you not mod the sump? Even though theres nothing wrong with cutting the frame up, may just look tidier for the cert man. other wise theres always the mud option, ice cream container, dirt, water, mix together and smear over the welds etc, go for a drive down a gravel road, cert man will be none the wiser. works in NZ lol.

Over six years, half a years wage spent, lots of happy times and the sad, but it's now time to move on. The car sold last night, the new owner will be picking it up next weekend.

While I'm sad to read this I'm also glad that the car was sold as 1 piece, and not parted out like some have to to do sell it.

Cheers

Nothing in mind at the moment, trying to decide whether to make my daily R31 Silhouette into something special, pay off debts, or put toward a completely different car all together. Decisions decisions...

I would never have stripped it down anyway, plus i probably would never have gotten the same price for parts as i would have for the whole car.

Thanks man, new owner loves it. So i've heard on the grape vine, it's now tuned and putting down stupid ammounts of power and torque, well done i say :)

As for new projects, i've gone with something a little more modest. I managed to pick up a very well looked after, clean 2003 MK1 BA XR8 for $9,000. Nothing over the top, no options, stock as a rock, just very tidy and well maintained. Looking for some 19" FG XR 'option' rims to jazz it up a little in the meantime.
