sweet random snap from a recent discussion thread about Skylines and race livery. I quite like the Calsonic colour(s) myself, even though I’ve never been a large fan of blue cars. (It’s second only to the DR30 Silhouette red’n'black in my books, but that’s a given!)

Of equal interest is the large MIKUNI logo on the wall in the background… now how sweet would that be on a t-shirt?!

Number 24, Calsonic HR31

but riddle me this: who drove the #24 car, and when? The only one I remember is #12.

Well, almost. Still gotta sort out some proper front seats to match the rest of the interior trim, find some O.Z Racing centre caps for the rims, and buy some Cusco adjustable camber top mounts via Ewan @ hayatonka…

But other than that I’m actually signing off on one of my projects for the first time! (the “I’m finished!” post from last year now seems a little bit premature in hindsight, but ah well.) let’s hope that neither banana nor squid take as long to complete!

here’s an up-to-date photo of the car as it sits now. More after the jump.

I’m fairly confident this is the only TX3 of its condition left in this country… possibly the world? What a maddening thought.
