yeah i can see how camo wouldnt work if theres alot of rednecks... but i think people in like alabama or kentucky should stick to trucks ne ways...
but out in Cali or say Florida camo would be so original it would blow peoples minds..
so anybody actually gonna do it? keep me posted...

I wouldnt mind trying that up here in NYC, but then people will get scared thinking that the military was sent out to the streets to defend against a terrorist attack.

When I get my driftmobile I'm gonna go for one of two looks: The NYC taxi cab theme or just straight up black stealthness.

But then again, a camo paintjob would be hot if you drift in a jungle and trying to avoid the policia!

man the desert/urban type camo on those CRX's and that 86 looks surprisingly awesome.

For bold i say Camo

For Serious i say flat Black

For understated im a fan of plain white... No one suspects the white car.

hmm for some reasont he jungle/forrest type camo really doesnt look as good to me.

speaking of odd paint schemes, i'd love to see a guy drifting around a police spec R34 or something.. or just anything with police colors (complete with japanese writing) and lights and sirine, drift with the lights going off that would be great. But there are laws against police type paint schemes in most places.. be cool for a track only car.

for some reason, I can only imagine an urban camo S13 coupe, not the fastback.

Im more of a gray through black color person. Nothing better than having a black car with nothing flashy and just OWNING things with like a crimson red with gold leaf color scheme. Its the understated car and very suttle, but in day light black cars look bad *Censored**Censored**Censored*.

thats why if you go with a low gloss black it has to be the Satin-Black, its basically what i said a black base with a low gloss or diluted clear shot over it... i cant seem to find a shot of it, but its not your basic rattle-can flat black job the best way to describe it is, alot of shine with no reflection... doesnt make sense but if someone could find a good pic...

Oh yeah and another thing S-Black may not be for everyone because you body work has to litterally be perfect under it, or itll look like your trying to hide something...

i still think camo throws your eyes of enough that itll hide stuff the best, and wont look as bad as black in the day...

haha we will see.

camo is sweet but will probably attract more attention from the fuzz. of course this shouldn't be a problem since all you freaks run street legal cars. ha!

Street legals the only way to go! its not as fun if yah cant show it off.. a buddy of mine drives his tubbed 240z with a full aluminum inner structure and the stock steel body on the outside... runs low 9 seconds without the Nos and still has the plates on it!

your 240 needs some darker and more destinct colors to qualify as Desert Camo...

Easy to do and cheap...

here's one way to do it..

Bring one of those Camo samples to a vinyl shop, they will blow it up and print you up huge sheets to cover your car with...

and if you don't like it, peel it off, don't worry about the paint
