Who Said You Need Paint?!

One of my earlier customs, this Toyota Celica TA22 was released as a mainline in red with what I think is some very nice looking tampo action. I decided that I wanted to change the colour of the car but I didn't want to lose those nice subtle tampos.

Cue the Artline Permanent Marker

I had already been attacking cars with a gold paint pen (see the cars here) so I knew painting with an airbrush or spray can weren't the only avenues available to go down, but to be honest I didn't think a permanent marker would work... not this well anyway!

I then completed the customisation and transformation of this diecast car by swapping the wheels for some watanabe style Real Riders (from the Honda Civic Boulevard)

So much JDM. So much WIN.

The slideshow will play automatically, although you can simply click away if 5 seconds is too long on each pic LOL... no serious, I have no patience and it would be too long for me

Please take the time to comment and or share this post if you like this custom.
