My new handles have been sitting in my kitchen for the best part of a month now and today the Sun shone warmly, the car was about as clean as it was going to get and I had started to 'tinker'.
Well it was no good, the job had been ignored enough, it was time to fit the new internal chrome handles to the car.
Having removed the door cards at various times it is now an easy job to take them off and the whole job, both sides took about thirty minutes. I had been toying with Aki's modification of interior lighting, although as I think that this probably needs a little more thought (on my part), I decided to just get on with fitting the handles first.
Naturally I took various shots with my mobile phone, alas I do not seem to possess the correct lead for it at my house! Never fear, posh camera was brought into play!
Rev Counter GTS Logo
A fellow Skyline owner created a rather nice logo to go on his rev counter. Much in the style of the GTR logo, his was white with a red 'S' detail. Well as the old saying goes 'if you don't ask, you don't get' so I asked if it would be possible to knock me up one, rather generously he said yes, just to muddy the water a little I then further asked if I could have black on red (as my dials are white).

Naturally I was not going to wait and stripped out the dash this afternoon.
