Design: 1) My favorite (now discontinued) flavor of Rockstar was Recovery Grape. I always thought that the color scheme on that can would make a great race livery. 2) I really like the look/livery of the Team Yellow Onevia. I basically did a mashup of the two to get the result you see with this body.
Body: D-Like S-13 shell with no significant modifications.
Paint: Tamiya translucent purple (PS45), backed by Tamiya metallic silver (PS48), and then backed it all in black (PS5).
Wheels: Tetsujin Super Rims. Chrome hoops with white jasmine inserts.
Accessories: PiPES single 12mm backfire unit out back, Yokomo light buckets, mirrors, and FMIC. I also made a custom roll cage using styrene rod.
Description: One of my top 3 favorite US drift team S13s, it was the only one i have not seen replicated so I decided to change that. The decals were custom made by myself. I found a Rockstar vector graphic online, and used inkscape to change all the colors to work with my theme and to create a layout that fit on a standard sheet of paper. I then printed the graphics on some inkjet vinyl, and applied a clear overlaminate to protect them and provide a glossy finish. They were then all cut out by hand and applied. A lot of work…
