Never one to be slow and steady when it comes to working on his car, Adam from StyleCase/RETROshine is constantly switching things up on his car, often completely changing the style in the same amount of time that it would take most people to undergo a small bit of routine maintenance. This time round, he decided to paint his fifty-shades-of-white FC3S. A couple of late nights in his garage later and this was the end result.
After staying up until the early hours hanging out while I worked on my C33, Adam returned to his own garage to finish off his FC so that he could go drifting at Buxton the following morning. I suggested that he gave me a call on his way up and stopped near my house so I could take a few photos before the still-slightly wet paint saw the track. Although, in hindsight, waking up to a phone call at 8am telling me he’d be arriving shortly left me immediately regretting the decision.
On the other hand, once I was off the phone I noticed that Adam had also sent me a Snapchat not long before 5am of him still finishing the car off. Things could have been worse I guess and I certainly didn’t envy him, especially as he’d need to spend the rest of day concentrating enough to keep his Mazda and its fresh paint out of Buxton’s concrete wall.
He’d also decided to give the Advan three spoke wheels a quick blast of chrome paint to brighten them up from their previous dull grey colour. The chrome on red colour combo certainly worked.
After a few minutes of taking photos, it was time for Adam to wake everyone up again with his boosted B6ZE engine setup and finish his journey to Buxton. I’m pleased to say that the RX-7 completed the day of drifting without making contact with the wall, although it was sparred Sunday’s drifting due to the track being treated to a sudden divulge of snow overnight.
