sup..

I've been trying to decide what color to paint my car.. it's gonna be blue for sure, at first I wanted IS300 blue, still love it ;) but seems like more and more people are gettin their cars painted that color. I wanna keep it original, and I think that the blue on the Skyline R34's (Calsonic Blue) is perfect.

I never really thought about it till I saw pictures of this supra a while ago...




seein as this car will quite possibly be the inspiration for my paint color, I was wonderin if there was any more info, or pictures of it.

Don't remember how I came upon the site ( here ) , probably someone on these forums.

But if you got any more info on this awsome car that what's on the site, lemme know! :)

Yeah, that color is sweet.

I love the color of my car, only one other guy on the forums that I have seen has even a similar color.

I felt original for a little while.

At least no one in my area even has a supra, let alone a modded one.

If I got my car painted again, itd have to be blue, cause of the interior, plus I love it, but im really starting to love the Corvette z-06 "electric blue"

Thats me! I have Aegean Blue Pearl from Acura. I gotta get some new pics. The color has really changed and lightened up as the paint has had a lot of time to set up now. Plus I added a bunch of JDM/Euro goodies (thanks spinningheadboy).

I also have to get my Bomex replica lip on there... my paint shop did a really crappy job painting though, so I may have to go have someone else respray it (no primer and one paper thin coat of paint). At least they fixed the cracks and smoothed it out, and it was free.



The calsonic blue looks kind of washed out to me. I am sure it looks much better in person.

I agree.

Silver is the best combination of unique, clean, and just plain great looking. I love silver cars.

When I buy a MKIV eventually its gonna be silver

I agree with staying silver. Your car is really clean the way it is now. If not silver I would go with RSP, or the Calsonic you mentioned, it looks really nice too.

:lol: everyone thinks my car looks great.. The paint is pretty bad in person, and to me, nothin will look better than blue with white accents..

here is the ferrari color you are talkin about, looks nice :)

It's called "Grigio Alloy"


here is "Jazz Blue"


is this the "Electric Blue" on the vette?


And yea, now that I think about it, I remember the skyline blue being called "Bayside Blue" least in GT2 it was..This ain't the best pic, but basically what I want, blue and white wheels :)

The ferrari color will look horrible on an MK3 IMO. Best bet is "bayside blue" or something darker than the other ones atleast.

bah, should I even bother tryin' to convince everyone, my car's paint is shitttty in person, there is even silver spray paint on the drivers side door and fender, and rear 1/2 panel, it's not pretty. I am looking into a paint job because my car was recently hit by an old lady in a rav4, and I will most likely be able to get a bunch of extra money (hint, paint)

I felt so lucky to find a factory blue Supra; although the color isn't as deep or gorgeous (in my opinion) as some of the pics posted above. Black looks gorgeous, but I will never own another black car. My Toyota truck uses the same 202 black as Supras and its a PITA to keep clean or keep from cracking in the hot sun through the years.
