Do you remember the days when it was the pinnacle of cool to wear a t-shirt that changed colour when it was hot outside?
The fad didn't last long as fashionistas soon realised that the Global Hypercolor t-shirts in question only served to highlight unsightly sweat patches on sunny days.
A team of car tinkerers in the Bradford area have decided that this colour-changing phenomenon would look good on a vehicle so have applied the art of Thermochromatic paint to one of its Nissan Skylines.
The science behind the funky paintjob goes something like this: when the temperatures go up, the Thermochromatic topcoat becomes colourless, revealing a slightly different shade of basecoat.
Auto Kandy decked the R33 Skyline out in a rather fetching orange hue and then added a darker, almost burgundy layer of the heat reactive paint over the top.
The result is a vehicle that now shows up handprints and changes colour in the areas that get particularly hot, including the bonnet and around the exhaust pipes.
The Baildon-based tuners have received a number of enquiries since posting the project on its Facebook page, with petrolheads as far away as the United States demanding to know where they can find a local stockist.
