'lost Birds' R33 Gtr


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, this is my first post so hello. I thought I'd join up on this site and get some good GTR info as well as post up the bits I have here and there. Moving on then. So here's my little paint project. Originally when I took delivery of the car, the front bumper had some slight damage on it. I was just going to repaint it silver, but somewhere along the way, I was asked by a close friend if they could try their hand at it. I knew this only meant things would get out of hand but I said okay. The artwork is by Allison La Valley of Lost Birds Art Studio (Portland, OR, USA) The car is in Misawa, Japan, where so far about 30 hours have gone into this. The plan is to finish the whole car by the end of February, so that will leave me time to build up the engine, etc before racing starts. I know some are going to hate that I allowed this, but remember it's just a car and as a matter of fact, there are 10s of 1,000s more just like it. Updates as they come!

pictures of the work so far.

i think it doesnt look too bad from a distance, especially the first shot of the front bar

however i myself having a slightly similar car, picturing that shit drawn all over it makes me cringe!

though as said above, each to their own

istdercollen: That is super cool. Not to many people have the balls to take a sharpie to they're car. It's hard to stand out with a skyline these days.... Well done!

I cant wait to see the whole car done.

I've seen the Lambo around Miami... It's very unique, but if you get close- the detail is a little rough.

Looks very different, mate! And she's very talented! Good work.

Although it'd be difficult to get to, doing the roof would look fantastic.

The roof will be last but it will get done for sure! Here's a cell pic of the current state of my living room. Haha.

thanks for the props! Most people seem to think it's neat. No one has said it sucked to my face yet. Lol. Honestly the reason I decided to do it was because I didn't want a silver GTR at all. I couldn't get my hands on a Midnight Purple so I settled for what was easy to find set on repainting it from the first moment. I thought that I might as well let Allison do her thing and if it sucks then repaint as originally planned, no harm done. So that's the mindset.
