    Question was if the car was off the road. If it is off the road it is SORN'd.

    No, I'm selling the car cash only no part ex's, bought the car cheap and once it's repaired I'll be looking at selling for around the £5000 margin, I'll be making about a 2k profit on that

    a little not much about skylines specifically though, I'm only on my second year in my apprenticeship at Rainfall's motor group but already replaced an engine on high performance cars on my own.

    I'm working on this skyline alone at home, hoping to have it complete in next few days, got up to removing the head and will continue with it tomorrow
