Hi guys

Long time no see. Been a hectic time with moving first to UK, then back to DK and buying house, new baby boy etc. None the less, Primera's has been there most of the time to keep me company. Now another wise buy has been made (not so wise if asking the wife). Bought it to be a summer car, so this one is a keeper.
No rust underneath to speak of, but needs 2 new front fenders as the current ones have rust. Other than that, just a few minor things to sort out. It will then get a polish, lowering springs that I already have and some wheels once I find the correct set. Nice and easy. Will update as progress is made.

Quick recap:

Then moved to UK, bought a 28k miles 2000 P11-144 1.8 and brought it with me when moving to DK. Driving position not approved by wife, so had to let it go. Looked like this:





After that I bought a base model 1997 P11 1.6 just to get me to work. Turned out to be much too expensive to drive 100 miles/day in it, so was eventually replaced by a diesel.



This brings us to my latest buy, a 86k miles P10 SRI from 1996 with a GA16DE engine. Not the most powerful engine, but free revving and still fun to drive. Pardon the pictures, better ones will follow over time as I improve it.

Day of buying it:







Back in the garage:



And a load of random ones because we all like pics.



















Hope you approve, cheers for now! :smoke:

Thanks for the positive comments. Not much has happened so far due to summer and it's parked at my friend who will be fixing a few things on it. Plenty of time, so no rush.

So far it's been given chrome dial rings, a new bee sting antenna, clear side indicator lenses (will go back to amber) and P11 GT rims with crap tires.
Besides that it's currently getting a service, a rust free right fender, short(er) throw gearshifter, new dampers all around, 35 mm lowering springs, and 195/60/15 Michelins. Should improve handling in a prositive direction.

Out on the drive



My son enjoys it as well:





And left at my friend for upgrades - can't wait to get it back

Thanks Guys, it's starting to get there now. Just got it back yesterday, a bit lower and in better condition than I dropped it off, so all is good on that front.

The mentioned chrome gauge rings installed:



And after a quick wash this morning before taking it to Work:





And parked at Work



Next up is to add yellow film to the foglights and get amber corners + switch to LED's where possible. Other than that Wheels and exhaust, but there are a more long term goals and not urgent.

Update July 2018

Time for an overdue update I think.

The SRI has been living a quiet life, waiting to get an overhaul. It's been off road since fall 2016. Due to Danish regulations you need to turn in the plates when taking it off road if you want to avoid road tax, so Ive decided not to have it on the road until I have it in the condition I want.
So I've spent time buying new parts for it instead. New brakes, aluminium radiator, rims (17" BBS), cat, exhaust, front fenders, dual lens headlights, foglights, suspension components and a complete A/C system, still in the original box. As the car i without A/C from factory it may be a bugger to install, so let's see if it will ever be done.

So Pictures.

Summer storage, all was well.



Winter storage, not so much.



So we washed it:



and stuck it in a tent - not a permanent solution, so this winter it will go to proper storage facility.



Test fitting the rims - will look good I think





Now, having the SRI off the road left me with driving other cars to work. Not acceptable, so another P10 was bought do DD. A 1996 LX Plus - same trim level as my first P10, so well happy with that. Nothing has gone wrong but a snapped driveshaft so far.



On P11 GT rims:




The mentioned driveshaft being changed. New one on the SRI, used from SRI onto the DD.



Messing around with photobucket Again, made me find som old Pictures I think is worth sharing.

Firstly my old G20 from when I lived in Orlando. Tiny car by US standards:





And then this gem I found on a trip to Cuba visiting my wifes family:



That's it for now. Have a great day

I've had a couple of different G20's in my day, currently on my 2nd P11. My 3 year old loves the car, my wife hates it, but it is a part of the family now. No matter how much hell this car gives me, this one isn't going anywhere.

If you can take your time and finish the car right, why not?

Same here - my wife isn't really impressed with these old cars, but I love them and they're here to stay.
Taking my time to get the car right is a privilege, and I enjoy collecting all the parts to upgrade and renovate it little by little.

They have P10s in cuba? I'm totally going.
Only one I've ever seen over there, but it'll most likely stick around for many years with the way they keep old cars running.
There's a youtube video from Cuba of another P10, so they have at least 2 on the island :p

New addition

Hi guys

Thought I'd quickly share my latest addition I just bought a few days ago; a 1994 Primera eGT. It's one of the only eGT's (if not the last one) here in Denmark, so I was very happy to snatch it up.
It's not perfect, but being an import from Germany and only driven in the summer for the last many years, it's virtually rust free. It has a bit of a rough idle and I don't like the spoiler (looks to be a SE one) instead of the usual GT one, but other than that it's great.

Some Pictures then. First one of my DD which now will be sold and the eGT used for the rest of the summer. After that I may tuck it away for winter and use my red SRI as a daily.





One of the only Pictures I've taken yet:




And some Pictures from the sales add:








I'll upload som more Pictures once I get a chance. But for now I have to drive, drive, and drive som more :teeth:

Very cool. Too bad we never got any of the good Primeras here!

Small update:
I sold the daily maroon P10 to trim down the carpark a little. It went to a young kid who will most definitely beat the living daylight out of it, but oh well.

The GT has had some issue not pulling cleanly even after new plugs, leads, dizzy rotor/cap, fuel filter, cleaned IAC/MAF, so it has been placed in the garage of shame until I have the motivation to keep troubleshooting. New clutch is needed anyway, and winter is coming, so I'll most likely not work on it until springtime.

A few family photos before the maroon one left. Pardon the quality:
