      Yeah he was working on the rear bumper yesterday. I wasn't quite happy with the transition on the underside step so he was tweaking that a hair before finishing for paint.

      Final body work on the sectioned, shortened and shaved rear bumper! This ended up being the most challenging part of the project so far.

      Might I suggest (and this is in 100% seriousness) having the rear bumper used to make a mold for replication? One extra for you in carbon fiber and then maybe a couple extra for the few crazy Z31 owners out there.

      There are 2 reasons I bring it up; the amount of time to make that bumper and the layers of filler to achieve the shape. One tappy tap tap and it's a world of hurt.

      Otherwise...carry on!

      I dont think I want to go through that. One tappy tap and I'm in a world of hurt mentally anyway. And he could do this a lot quicker a second time with a proven gameplan. Unfortunately there still isn't much demand for z31 parts either.

      Zenki rear bumper sectioned into 7 pieces, shortened 2-3" and shaved. Made it look like a shortened kouki without the crash bulges.

      To say I am impressed with the way the rear bumper came out would be an understatement. Also, he wasn't quite happy with the engine bay so he is spraying it again.

      Is the RB26 not wanted as a swap every Nissan person that i doing a swap tells me they're doing an RB25 (or are they just more cheap and plentiful)

      Really impressed with this build. Hard to believe it started over two years ago. That's a lot of patience considering it's still not all together yet.

      Always looking forward to more updates!

      This. Although every paint job would be so expensive that most cars could never get one!

      I still don't know what this is, but I love it even more.

      Aside: does your painter A) make money by charging $100k for this paint job, or B) lose money but that's OK because he's a tortured artist and would cut off his ear if he couldn't fulfill his life by painting a Z31?

      He probably isn't making a killing on this car but since paint and body is already over $20k, I'm sure he isn't losing money.
