So I had opted not to put the Primera on the road this winter and instead opted to get this little workhorse instead.

She is only a 1.5, but engine runs great. Was an old guy who owned it. The only issue with it is the Radiator Support Panel is rotted. I do have a replacement though.

Engine was at 99595 Miles when I got it, a little over 101k now.

So far I have gave the external body a good clean but it needs a mop with some G10 I think. Got a few wee issues here and there on the body work but will sort it out next year. The under chassis is spotless also.

The one issue which had developed was one of the front brakes had binded on. The disk then glowed red and effectively cooked the brake pads. Anyway I then swapped the P11GT brakes from my old N16 and put them on this one. Brakes so much better now.

Anyways here is some of the pics before I purchased her:

I also fitted my 6000k HID kit.

I plan on fitting my other Interior, as well as maybe looking to swap the rear axle as this one has drum brakes while the other has Disk brakes.

So I had some woes with this car recently, it decided to destroy a wheel bearing....anyways all fixed now.

I am also now getting some Inspiration of some N16 modifications now. Just to make it look a little better. and perhaps go better too. >:)

Not any more :) So she is now back under my owner ship now, Got to try and get a lot of work done to it as I plan on using this as my winter daily again.

Its current off the road as I need to replace the Clutch, and front radiator support panel. Plus I replaced the driver side doors, bonnet and tailgate due to corrosionl, but the new panels are in great condition so I will get them sprayed soon.

I will be looking to VE her, but wont be for another few years, I do however got a new Project coming soon with a decent SR20DE engine, so I plan on putting this engine in this first before I build a VE for it, Benefits of having spare VE Heads :)
