I suppose I should post mine up in here now......

For posterity, it's candy mandarin orange fading to candy royal blue, both over a silver base.

This is mine with its custom colours. It was grey when i bought it, the paintwork wasn't any good at all so i had to do loads of body repairs to sort from scratches , dings, dents etc. Then I distressed the grey added in a metal and black to the colour too to make it look more in keeping with my theme, after that i flaked over it in small sky blue metal flakes. for its designs I added steam punk patches around the car and also added a huge steam punked octopus to the bonnet - which has decided to pinch my engine rotary.
I Still have lots i want to add to this design but this was as much as I could do before its first show. Hopefully doesn't look too bad for 5 days worth of work. i plan as the month go on (well all dependent on how busy I am with work and how much my car behaves ) to add more and more to the design and styling of car, this will be a constant on going and changing project.

A steam punk octopus stealing a rotary engine. Wow, that's impressive.
Kind of puts coloured strakes in the shadows a bit, eh?

Hehehe, I like anything custom though so even seeing what people consider the simplest of designs and customisations on a car still impresses me as it says the owner made a statement and styled it to suit them. :D and I’m a huge fan of that.

i painted this for a show which i go to every year, the show itself is mainly alternative and retro and also has a very custom and arty theme, I demo at the show and put my car out on stand for everyone to see. so seemed fitting to quickly steampunk my car as I couldn’t park it up with its original paint work being grey, and that really doesn’t say that’s my car, my cars are known for being very bold.

It’s just a Shame my car got a few hiccups immediately after the show. So I haven’t had much chance to expand on this theme or drive around and show it off.though I’m already planing it’s new airbrush work for when next years shows start. And once fixed and modded a bit more I will get it to a few of the rx8 meets and club shows too. :)

I love that colour, is that a candy burnt orange? Looks simply gorgeous on an FD but still looks wicked on an 8 8)

For me the wheels have to be silver to give it a nice contrast against that colour, dark wheels would look terrible IMO
