red painted skyline logo
« on: April 08, 2002, 04:12:45 AM »
hey guys, at the back of my car on the boot, where everyone has clear "skyline" writing, i've just got dodgy "skyline" painted on it, except each letter sticks out so it doesn't look like a home job.  just wondering what the significance of this is, if there is any...
thanks

It means that one of the previous owner(s) whipped out a can of red paint, a paint brush and painted over the "SKYLINE" under the bootlid.

Yeah I have seen a R32 with the SKYLINE emblem in red. But there are so many variations of skylines and body kits that came from the factory. I have counted atleast 4 different types of front bar that came out in the R32. I have blue GT badges on the side - people beleive it means non turbo, it means nothing, just changes in the factory thats all.

My Skyline emblem used to be red but the paint was slowly flaking off so I scratched the rest of it off so that it matched the other badges which are silver.I have seen alot of R32'S with the emblems painted red and I have even seen one with it"s emblem painted fluro green.:)

Hi

Yeah, the badges in my R33 are red. I've also heard from numerous ppl that it means turbo. My car isn't turbo, unfortunately. I also have a red S on the front of my car. This is mounted on a mesh grill, replacing the bar grill part. I've seen this on a couple of other R33s but don't know whether this is a variation from the factory or aftermarket.
