STILLEN Targa Newfoundland Nissan GT-R Gets New Paint

July 7, 2009 Comments off


Time is flying by in the countdown until Steve Millen contends the Targa Newfoundland 2009 in mid September. STILLEN have been busy innovating new durable racing components for the GT-R while at the same time preparing their own race car for the event.

In a STILLEN blog update they’ve showed us a bunch of paint prep and paint booth photos showing the process of taking their Vibrant Red GT-R to bright orange which matches Steve’s previous Targa weapon, the orange Ford GT.

Also painted and fitted up are carbon panels from Password:JDM including a dry carbon hood and dry carbon trunk. Looks good guys, cant wait to see it assembled.
