just something to keep me busy i had a spare r32 and decided it needed a colour change so it went into the booth for this. it started as a white r32 stripped all the parts off sanded done then four coats of tamiya yellow chrome still need to paint the peices that go in front of the rear wheels and rear lights and paint the trim black then clearcoat and a polish

Looks good. I've been thinking about doing mine in yellow. I like the spoiler on it.

thanks faze your car was kinda my insperation for this one i was thinking of doing a bk but then i thought no i want the clean look and the spoiler was the one underneath the one it came with. the yellow was one colour i havent seen done very much that was the only reason i chose it

What do you use to polish the clear on miniz's? I have tried 3m fine hand polish but it didn't really seem to do much.

Like I've said on XMF, the paint is looking good. As for the polishing, 3M rubbing compound works great.

Skylines are popular in HK, the ones in the pics looks like the GT-T/GT-S.
