About a year ago I painted this CRX for a friend of mine. He let me completely free in what to do with it as long as I would use bright colours so it would be easy to see on the track. Offcourse I already had an idea for it, something I wanted to do for a long time; Spoon livery!


As there never was a Spoon 1st gen CRX I took the NSX and CRZ as a reference and based the livery on those two cars. I then made all the logo's in Illustrator and cut them on my vinyl plotter.

It was a very simple build, only paint and decals. It was going to be run on the track so any details I would add would be gone within 5 minutes of driving.


I'm very happy with how it came out though, as is my friend! Oh and excuse the bodyposts and messed up wheels. I just mocked it up on my own chassis ;)

Pictures I took for Bison the gluemanufacturer

Looks real good and JapanesNostalgicCar has a 2nd gen Civic Hatchback photo that looks a lot like your decals too. It is nice to see one in not box art and what is wrong with those wheels??? I have some on my first photo posts, but have since changed over to a bit better looking street wheel from the Alfa M chassis car. Reminds me I have to update my showroom, on a LOT of my photos.

Nothing wrong with the style of the wheels, but they are quite trashed haha. The guy I painted this for has a set of ABC Hobby Hayashi Street wheels for it, that look way better.

Looking good! What is the yellow you used? Is it a Tamiya colour? I'm looking for a yellow just like this. Thanks
