Another project from earlier this year.

Willy has long been an admirer of the Japanese tuning firm Top Secret. Huge horsepower, often extensive bodywork modifications and of course the distinctive gold and black colour scheme - certainly caught Willy's attention!

As far as we know, Top Secret never modified a Honda City Turbo. So Willy set to work, trying to imagine what a Top Secret Honda City Turbo would have looked like. And here's the result.

Despite the Top Secret inspiration, the body has very few mods, just windscreen wipers, working head- and tail-lights, wire mesh grills, towing eye, exhaust, front splitter and a few home-made decals.

The chassis has a few colour-coded aluminium goodies, bearings, steel pinion and low friction shocks. The wheels are painted to (hopefully) complement the look.

Of course Willy needed an interior to make himself comfortable!
Willy seems happy with his new car, hope you like it too.

Cheers,
Rob

Wow another great HCT! Top Secret themselves couldn't have done a better job on this. Is the gold a tamiya spray can?

Thank you, you're very kind. It's not a Tamiya colour, it's Halfords auto paint - Ford Olympic Gold if I remember right.

Nice! It has a certain kinda anodized shine to it that goes together with the black very well IMO.

Thank you guys. I think I got lucky with the colour, and even managed to get the lacquer fairly smooth! (I'm always nervous about lacquer, it's just something else to go wrong!)
