50 words on …. The Styling: Subtle is the key, this is not a Primera trying to be any other car it’s a Primera full stop! So the plan was to enhance the styling by working with the good parts & enhance those Nissan should have done pre-production JDM Yo!
50 words on …. The Interior: Full OEM spec leather in mint condition, with subtle ICE to fill the car with those essNchill tunes. LED replacement lighting throughout freshens up the 90’s display, is there a gadget not present in the dash probably not (gauge pods, boost controller, ECUtalk etc.). Sci-fi has a lot to answer for!

50 words on …. Why you should win!: There’s no Pulsar/GTiR swap here, from the ground up this engine is all Primera. This project came about from a love for Jap cars & a need for speed. This car wouldn’t be what it is today without the input & know how of various forums NPOC, SR20 & G20.
