I got some new Tamiya Paint the other day from my hobby shop, i was really looking for Light Pearl Blue, but they ran out, so i just got some other paint i never seen, Tamiya TS58 Light Metallic Blue. Heres a pic of it at the bottom i just took a quick spray over a R34 Hood, the pics came out a little bit dark though.

That's a nice color; I built an R-32 using that color. Check Power's HKS R-32 GT-R (http://www.geocities.com/tonioseven/hks_r32.html)

TS-58 is light pearl blue. I think you've got TS-54, Light Metallic Blue...

My can of TS-58 is on it's way from HLJ as we speak. It's for my R34!!! Great minds think alike, I guess.

Just picked up some Testors High Gloss Clear Coat today and just wanted to test it out on the hood and look!!! It came out 2 times shinier! I was pretty amazed.:bigthumb:

No, i used Tamiya for the color, and Testors for the clear coat.
