Nissan Skyline: Import Tuner Challenge custom paint jobs

While certainly not on the same level as Forza Motorsport 2, the 2006 instalment of the Shutokou Battle series (also known as Tokyo Highway Battle, Tokyo Highway Challenge, Tokyo Xtreme Racer and, now, Import Tuner Challenge) also has extensive car customisation that includes vinyl and sticker placements. You can place three vinyls on the side of the car and several stickers. The vinyls don’t include primitives as Forza Motorsport did but are made up of many complex patterns and artworks.

I used two main cars through the Quest mode of Import Tuner Challenge: a Nissan Skyline Coupe CPV35 and a Nissan Skyline GT-R BNR34.

The paint job on the Nissan Skyline GT-R BNR34 rotates and shrinks one of the complex flashes supplied and uses it as fire coming out of the mouth of a dragon at the flying girl. Notice also how the wheels are different colours. I think it works.

The paint job on the Nissan Skyline Coupe PCV35 takes the same girl but rotates her 180° making her appear to be reclining seductively on the rear wheel arch. After adding the tear vinyl at the front wheel arch, I needed something to visually lead the eye from front to back. I used a large katana vinyl to accomplish this without noticing that it looked like I’d skewered her on it. Sorry, girl.
