There i was jaw dropping n deep inside i feel that i muz hav this car. I fell in love with the car at 1st sight hehe :P Soon after i got this "skyline", a lot of things came to my mind n how it shud hav luk like. 1st..i drop this car at the bodywork shop which my fren introduced to me. The guy Andry is a fren to my fren. I was told that he can be gentle to this precious piece of mine

    So here we go...

    I would use a color that fits the time the car was made in, no flashy modern stuff, just silver or brown, maybe white.
    That looks good on this car.
