We have a Skyline coming in soon for a respray, good to see a member down here.

Also we have one of these to build after the Skyline!

Awesome body architect. But this one picture is not enough to get idea about this car. Some more pictures are required from different angles.
Now I am desperate to ride it. When you project will be launched?

As soon as we get chance really. We have an Evo in for body work and respray, a R33 GTR coming in for rework and respray and another R33 coming in for a Yokozuna wide arch conversion and respray. So quite busy.

Actually dare I be so bold and ask you'd a quick question about paint?

If so I am going getting a car sprayed in pearl green and I was wondering do ye have any suggestion as to what would be a nice green to paint? Also I was thinking maybe a costum pearl would be nice but how do I go about getting it to change colour more, say dark green in the shade and much lighter green in the sun. Any idea how this would be done?

Do I take some pearl colours out of it? Or put some more different colours in?
Maybe like a flake or even a different base coat? Any help would be awesome :)

something like this

It's hard to recommend a particular green pearl as there are literally hundreds of them and down to your tastes. You can add a chameleon flip to make it change colours. A good painter should be able to make a sample for you until you find the right colour you want, like we do here.

Like we did this one for a customer a while back

Can't remember to be honest, a long time ago. It was HOK though.
