Nissan Figaro Rest-Mod. Not for the faint-hearted (or Millwall Fans)

Firstly, I would like to apologise to the Nissan Figaro purists and Millwall Fans. It won't be to everyone's liking, that's for sure.

The 'other arf' has wanted a Nissan Figaro for many years. She is also a die-hard West Ham supporter, so we decided to kill two birds with one stone and have had a bog standard Figaro fully restored.

Just about everything has been replaced with new and/or reconditioned parts, including engine, gearbox and all running gear. The bumpers have been triple chrome plated (new Nissan bumpers have paper thin chrome and look terrible). Fully re-upholstered hand made leather interior, and plastics have been media blasted and re-painted. New custom carpets and mats. Dynamat sound proofing to all interior panels. New mohair hood to replace the standard Nissan vinyl hood. Full respray...the list goes on...

I am not too keen on the blue 'polo' hub caps so will probably replace with chrome baby moon hub caps.

We also have the Reg No: WHU 120N (iron's) on retention.

More on the car here > https://www.thenissanfigaroshop.co.u...-west-ham-car/


I'll let the pictures do the talking.

Certainly very different and well done but not necessarily to everyones taste.

Limited resale market - a Nissan Figaro loving West Ham supporter - mind you if your wife is one then there could be another when its time to sell

Blimey, I bet that cost a small fortune - unlike West Ham’s squad!
