Please say a future mod is to convert the car to a manual. Interior looks good by the way.
The white looks nice  but will show every bit of dirt.
Your car may be able to go faster.
But I can go any where. except into a garage, underground carpark, bridge...

2 sticks and manual locking hubs. have to get out to drive it around
Good old Nissan.

KA's are the shit. According to all the info on the site, they are better then sliced bread and thats saying something.

Don't you have trouble seeing out through the windscreen? I always find the glare off a light coloured dash makes it hard to see.

Nice tint job on the tail lights

I believe he used something called "paint" in a modern process known as "painting".

LOL you gotta be kidding
Don't let the opinions of the average man sway you. Dream, and he thinks you're crazy. Succeed, and he thinks you're lucky. Acquire wealth, and he thinks you're greedy. Pay no attention. He simply doesn't understand.

Its wierd stepping into a left hand drive car, the peddles are all still the same, but getting used to gear changes is odd, and the ignition is still on the right hand side too.
However its awsome having a canadian partner with RHD, when i've got my hands full i can ask her to change the gears for me from the passenger seat, and it feels natural for her :P

So reece, any progress on the interior?  Thinking those door trims would be looked at by now.

Yeah, I had that feeling trying to drive my father-in-law's car in Taiwan. Takes some getting used to. Driving on the wrong side of the road is harder to cope with though. Messes with your head.

About the interior: does the white dash top reflect in the windscreen on sunny days making it difficult to see...? Looks good, but I'd be slightly concerned about that.

The white dash is stupid,, it look rediculous, not only that, it's verging on illegal! I think maybe you should have tried a tasteful interior mod. do the dash in a black material and cover everything else in a dark red or beige leather, change the seats to match and the carpet and interior lining to match, steering wheel, gear boor and knob etc. Spraying your dash white. Wow, genius.

:P

Black and beige will become 'dated' really really quickly.

And maroon interiors went out in the early 90s.

I have seen a BMW M3 Alpina done in an all cream/white interior and it looked real good, I dont think it was as stark as that white, but it was seats, carpet ,door trim etc.

lol... so much hate for the noobs...

Can you guys relax ?

It's his opinion and his entitled to say what he wants - also quite frankly I agree, a white dash is stupid, ugly, dangerous and ricey.

Are you guys going to flame me now? Just ease up, I'm sure if a moderator such as noss, sss, urq, budgie, or whoever said it you wouldn't say half the stuff mentioned.

Bit of respect kthx.
