Engine Bay Time
A friend of mine did recently accuse me of not including a gratuitous shot of the engine bay. A bit of a hobby of mine as you can probably see. When Ms Skyline arrived she was covered in a film of light brown dirt, where she had obviously sat immobile for months on end, enduring all mother nature could do to age her good looks.. I always like to think that my approach to the engine bay is one as of a child opening the bonnet on a toy car to reveal the highly plated plastic lump within! To open the bonnet of the average Skyline is to experience a great sense of disappointment, with a wealth of dirty rotten old pipes and dull grey, weathered aluminium.

So with this in mind, anything Aluminium has been polished, anything that can be stainless steel replaced. Being un-tempted to go for silicone pipework in one of the many fetching shades, I have stuck with the original piping. Anyone buying into the silicone scene are fooling themselves!

Tune in again soon when I have some charge in my camera battery.. The true horror of metal polishing will be revealed!
