I say if you have all the means to do it then do it. a ls motor would also be sick. Or a boosted 350sbc. Either way it will be a crazy car.

thanks man, me too, seems like almost every one i've seen is half assed together or the body work is shotty. my buddy is trying to do the conversion to his coupe and..well, words fail to describe.

as far as wheels go, i'm lookin at a few different options; cleaning up the hasemi's that were originally on the car months agosome work vs's that Jspec's got for saleor some kakimoto's that jspec's got for salethe panasports belong to my buddy, i'm not too crazy about them, they're nice but they don't really fit the car. i really wanna get my hands on some '07 nismo 350z wheels or some work meisters.

I LOVE IT. Congrats dude, you have the first complete, finished, amazing looking r32 conversion that I've seen. It looks OEM in my opinion. Amazing. *save picture as*.....

I'll have some daytime pics up today. I gotta make some room in the garage for her so she can come home today and then me and my buddy who is the mastermind behind the body work and paint will take it to a good location for some real good high-res pics.
