SKYLINE ?????   NAAAAAA ITíS A SKYMERA!!
By Viper

Yet another year has passed, and yet another look achieve thanks to the skills of LS Taylor Coachworks. You could say his pursuit for perfection is relentless but I think this time round, he is 99% spot on !!!!

 

Quote From Kevin

A lot of people ask Why? Why not just buy a Skyline? Simple answer is this. That would be cheating!
In all honesty, even with the price of the car, and the money I've spent on her, I would still be a long way off from buying an R34 and even then, how much would it cost to modify that? With the aid of a lot of friends, I've managed to do the majority this myself and saved me a packet! We make do with what we have and we set out to do things that has not been done before. I've put a lot of time and effort into my car because that's what modifying is all about. In the world of Modifying, there's a difference between Paying someone to do it, and Doing the work yourself. Modifying is another word for Customising, ie adding that personal touch, being unique. Its more gratifying when you stand back, look at the car and say " WOW, it works! and I did that!"

The Primera started life as a shell but all ready for the modifications that were planned for her.

As the car starts to take shape the lights, bumpers, bonnet and essential skyline parts all come together on the Primera body.


As the car takes shape in to the fierce looking Skymera. Interior needed to be considered. With the new engine going in gauges and fun toys will have to be added.
