Very nice.....but was there any reason you didn't include the Hoonigan decals ?

Hi Ian,

I was offered by the builder to add those custom decals, but passed because I like the clean look of a plain body RWB...:)

Within the last few months, Rosso43 announced that he would be offering the RWB 964 with the ducktail spoiler... much exciting news! :D

An absolute must that I sign up for one, and quickly went to work as to what shade I wanted mine's finished in... :D

After some time, I came up with this....

Something that stands out from the rest of the pack, yet stunning and tasteful...

Pearl Pink! Oink! Oink!

Not your typical Porsche color, but definitely suits it quite well :D :D

Amongst other duck tail RWB's also completed for other customers...

And a group shot with other recent RWB's built... :D :D

Wow, that's stunning Tommy.

It's a pity the black wheels hide so much detail. I think the metallic grey 5 spoke rims as fitted to the baby blue version would have looked good on your car as well.

I did consider other alternatives besides black, but chose it for two simple reasons...

1. Pink is such an bold choice of color on any car, even repulsive to most people...

Besides a Lamborghini, the only manufacturer that I think could pull it off is that of a Porsche... :D :D

With that said, black wheels were necessary to tame it down...I also had other parts on the model finished in black for that very reason...

Even the exhaust tips got the same treatment this time around! I think it all came together nicely....more balanced... :D :D

Anything to control this "Barbie Edition" RWB... :lol: :lol:

2. I am a sucker for black wheels... :D :D

To give you a better idea, here is another RWB he built with the exact same wheel set as mine, but with a much brighter finish...Delicate and gorgeous!

As you mentioned, a shame that one cannot see the beauty of the wheels because of the black paint, but there is usually a reason for everything... :) :)
