As is the Custom: My faves for the week ending February 9, 2013...

Many thanks to all that have submitted photos of their work.  We get more and more submissions each week, and we truly appreciate it.  Understand we cannot show all, but if you keep sending them, they are bound to make it at some point.

And remember, your submissions don't have to be elaborate builds, or precise decal jobs, or prefect restorations.  Sometimes the best custom is a simple wheel swap, that takes a model from good to great. If it passes the eye test, or gets an out-loud "wow" when we see it, it will surely go in.

So keep sending them in to lamleygroup@gmail.com (preferred) or post them on the Lamley Facebook page.  Keep 'em coming...

On with it...


This week's custom of the week comes from Putera Terbuang.  We have seen A LOT of R34 customs, and frankly we will never get sick of them.  This one is a great color and definitely is the beneficiary of great decal work, but the highlight here is those mind-blowing custom built deep-dish watanabe rims.  Truly a treat.


We also really liked this simple yet stunning 2002 from Miguel Lopez:

And another from Miguel:



Lastly, honorable mention goes to Mior Hezri who submitted this set of 599XX's on HWC Malaysia:



and now on with the rest of this week's choices...
