That isn't what I plan to show you all though, this is UK specific although naturally with a change of some ingredients anything is possible.
Firstly you will need to get hold of a Spec 1 Skyline panel. The irony being that the letters were originally painted silver and the rest of the panel was clear. We now need to turn this on its head and have clear letters and a painted panel. The one that I am using is a badly painted unit that a friend abandoned to my care. More about painting later.
As this is step one, it's reasonably easy. You will need to cut away two sections either side of the central locating lug at the back of the unit.
Note it may be possible to heat the unit and separate it's parts, although personally I have never tried doing this. This step only takes 30 odd minutes anyway.

|note this picture is wrong and you will need to go beyond the rubber air vent pipe.|
This concludes part one, part two will be painting the letters and lighting.
This is my rear panel that my friend Karl is putting right after i made a complete pigs ear of it :)ReplyDelete
