    Yep, has the white dials. All the N15 SSS's do as far as I know, I actually don't like the white dials (tacky/rice) but aparently thr lower spec black dials aren't compatible.

    The biggest issue with these is clear coat deterioration, nearly every single one I looked at had been resprayed or all the clear was peeling/flaking off.

    Mine appears to have been resprayed at one point on the side and back but I think it must have been for a repair (probably crashed), most horizontal surfaces are nearly matte.

    No one wants to pay more than a car is worth for a paint job so they sell for cheap.

    Aside from the paint I think I have a broken engine mount or 2 (it has 4) as I can feel the gear stick move forward under braking and backwards under acceleration, they are about $40 which is reasonably cheap.

    It's got 250k on the clock and looks like it's had a hard life but the SR20s will go forever with just regular oil changes I've read as long as you don't boost them.

    They look really good lowered but I'm not sure if I'll bother, also Tomei poncams, Nistune and exhust might be on the to do list if I decide to keep it but it's hard to justify the money on a car that isn't worth much.

    White dials were all the rage back then (adds 20kw) i herd... i like them!

    Some good oil plus a oil filter new air filter should keep you going, plus a head light bulb upgrade to 130% Phillips

    for the country roads and wild life.

    For some reason my FJ Cruiser has white dials as well, but the biggest annoyance is no digital speedo, I got so used to having one after my last 3 cars had them.

    CSL+EXOv3 50ml combos arrived from UK, had to order from overseas as it's deemed a pro only product by Gtechniq Aust.



    Cheap syn wool wash mitts arrived from Aliexpress seller in China. I will use these as my wheel mitts, been using the a very similar one for the last 15 years and very happy with it. Used to be able to find these cheapies everywhere back in the day ( pre mf everywhere days ) but now it's either top end real lambswool mitt or MF mitts or some sort. Paid US$10 each shipped.

    Niiiiiiiiiiiice

    Reckon you could do a quick review or give us your thoughts on its application? I ended up picking Optimum over Gtechniq because the Evo seemed to be a bit more complicated in application. Keen to hear your thoughts

    Parcel arrived this morning.

    Ordered some gear and consumables from an online shop in the Netherlands - C.R.O.P; they are like Jeffersons au specialising in bodyshop supplies. Shipping cost some EUR$ 85 for the 5.2kg parcel via NL airpost, and only took 8 calender days to arrive.

    Tried to ordered some ibrid nano soft brushes ( which didn't come with kit, only horsehair and stiff nylon ), and some UHS 1.2" and 2" pads from GNG sales and they said I have to buy from my Perth local agent. Rang up and they have no idea what I'm on about and need to order them in from the GNG in the East anyway and that could take couple of weeks. So I found this C.R.O.P place online, and while I was there found a lot of neat stuff that's not avail here ie Mirka P1000 3" sanding foam discs which I used with great success in HK for headlight restoration work. Came across the Rupes detailing academy polo shirt in my size also, been wanting to buy one of those ex UK but my size seems always out of stock.

    The Duetto kit was bundled with the MF clothes, small bottles of yellow and blue compounds, blue and yellow pads ( blue I don't bother using at all, yellow very versatile ) and 5" P2000 and 3000 foam sanding discs and also the hard to come by 5" interface pad. With the sanding accesories very useful for me and this kit was discounted to only EUR$279 I thought I might as well.






    Their shopping cart isn't geared for sales outside the EU and their website is in dutch only ( thank heavens for google translate ); but they are more than willing to send anywhere in the world. Payment is via direct bank deposit only.

    EUR$279+shipping was for the Duetto kit only ( shown on the top pic ) which comprises of the polisher, MF towels, 2 qty sample size polishing liquids, 2 qty buffing pads, P2000/3000 sanding discs and interface kit. Normal price for this kit was some EUR$34x.00.

    I ordered extra stuff (shown on the bottom pic ) on top to make the EUR$85 shipping worth my while.

    Just use any euro to Oz travel adapter. Same voltage standard, so no transformer required.
    ~$8 at Bunnings...
