Karol Shusbands 72 Skyline, Betty The Hakopotamus. Discussion.

Recommended Posts

The late garnish looks awful to me, and I'm not a big fan of the GT-R end pieces. Actually, I don't really rate Hako's anymore. Stupid old cars.

 

What I'd really like is the early rear lights with the integral reversing light, but the originals are rare as rocking hens horse-shit teeth and the repros just dont fit.

 

Bear with me, it might look good. Won't know till it's done, but nothing irreversible will happen.

 

Also, did you just call me a plonker ?

 

Nice to pop back in, thanks :)

I know nothing about these cars, but when I saw that rear end pic I thought of grandma with her teeth out.

 

Just sayin..

 

I'm not normally opinionated, but Mr kyteler started it.

 

So there.

Yoinks, didn't think for a moment it would be only me that liked it.

 

I like all the 'wrong' treatments below more than the stock set up.

Of course there is no way I can return it to stock now you've told me I should.

 

Maybe some MK 1 Cortina lights would look good.....

I do agree that the other option looks good. Whatever the case, you've got it under control, I'm sure.
