thanks its a jetta with a .:R32 front bumper fully molded, lights, and boser hood, i as you can tell did a bad job at trying to air brush the front end to make it look like that. im in the process of doing it to my car so i thought why not :)

Since it's frowned upon to vote for yourself ;)

For me, it's close between Igor & Sinic. LS, that's one clean dub but on closer inspection it's sloppy which surprised me & put me off.

Nice touch by Sinic with the bike in the pick up, although the bike should be leaning more :D

Igor's wheels bust but I like it the most overall, nice job Igor :thumb:

@AzZzA, love the dubway logo :D

Well im surprised again by the turnout.
This one was initially a little difficult for for me in choosing a fave.
Several appear too plain or subtle and without the originals I found them hard to evaluate.
Others had certain aspects I really liked but either contained some very obvious flaws or seemed rushed and/or unfinished.
I narrowed it down to the top three scorers - LS, Igor and SINiC.
I really liked LS' chop alot. It would probably have gotton my vote had he taken a few more minutes to add some sky reflection to the hatch glass and did something to blend the c & p pavement to the sky at the horizon line which is a real drawback here.
Igor is nearly spot on and incorporates some cool color contrasting and special effects . But that front wheel looks like its off one of White Lancers caracature toons and I just couldnt get past it.
In the end I voted for SINiC. It definitely involved a considerable amount of effort and quite possibly the greatest amount of time invested of all the entries. I think SINiC's style of brushing really works well in this pic. The BG and warm colors deliver a great feel, especially considering its 20 degrees here at the moment. I just wish I could throw on a Hawaiian shirt, some Khaki shorts and transport myself in the cab of that baby !

HAZARD
01-07-2010, 10:16 PM
i agree some of them were a little choppy mine included on further inspection a few had minor details from being rushed or ever looked, ls had a rear fender mishap and escort forgot the down piping on the halo. but i still liked them alot. question though. igor why move the vw badge to the side? it looks a little out of place

Its an Igor trademark HAZ.
You know how Igor in the Frankenstein movies had the hump on the one side thingy. :D

I'm 100% sure I enclosed a link of my original as well. It can certainly make decisions a lot easier when you have original pics to compare the chops to ;)

I vote for HAZARD. I love the cream paint, black wheels and last but not least I love the Golf front on a Jetta:D.

Everybody did a great job though:).

HAZARD
01-08-2010, 12:17 PM
thanks LS. i think we should all just post our originals anyway even if they are not in the first post maybe people will read through first

here is mine

theres an idea for u hazard when it comes to u wanting to do a vdub battle of mk1 and 2 later down the road

HAZARD
01-08-2010, 08:50 PM
yeah...i wanna do one soo bad but no one else wants to lol

BadBlood
01-08-2010, 10:41 PM
we will want to do one , eventually , just not right now

just wondering if i could get any feedback on my chop , i brushed the flame , did it turn out any good coz its hard to do flames

HAZARD
01-08-2010, 11:07 PM
it was the flame was pretty good but the paint was too flat

BadBlood
01-09-2010, 03:23 AM
it was the flame was pretty good but the paint was too flat

yeah its matte purple

HAZARD
01-09-2010, 03:34 AM
oh i wasnt sure it that was the effect of not because it was almost too flat. also the flame might has been a little skinnier oh and you forgot the rebar on you FMIC

All great entries guys. :thumb: Luv 'em all.
I had to vote for someone and ended up with LS. Absolutely beautiful!!! Always loved Mk1s.

...But that front wheel looks like its off one of White Lancers caracature toons and I just couldnt get past it...
I haven't sole it.
Here's a donor to prove it: http://img694.imageshack.us/img694/2002/22391392304cd2eaea3ao.jpg

...igor why move the vw badge to the side? it looks a little out of place
Don't know man, I think it looks cool. I wonder why nobody do this in real life.
Hey maybe I'll start a new trend in VW world. :D

And thanks to all who voted for me. :high5:
We should do this more often.

No bro you misunderstand my meaning here. My referrence to White Lancers car-toons is in regard to the way he stretches and deforms the tires/wheels. This is cool on his toons but IMO doesnt work on something that is supposed to look real. However, judging from the voting this doesnt appear to be a concern for some of the other guys.

because in real life 90% of the people who do things to their VW go with a badgeless grill like i did on my car. IMO it looks cleaner and makes the front end of the jettas look less boxy...plus chrome on VWs is a BIG NO NO. VWs are all about clean lines i think thats why no one has done it. but go for it start it! maybe just for you ill rock one on my project car ;)

rebar?

HAZARD
01-10-2010, 02:25 AM
a rebar is the part that holds the intercooler to the car. here are pics, its the black bar that mounts the intercooler to the car, its a replacement for the bumper rebar (reinforcement bar)

more ways to mount a front mount than that , i helped my boss mount his FMIC on his R33 GT-ST , we didnt use no re-bar , we made our own mounts

PSDavinci
01-11-2010, 08:58 AM
Yeah, theres many different applications.
I have installed and/or helped install so many ive lost count and remember only one with this type of mounting.
However bro I think the whole point here is not so much the type of mount used but rather having a mount at all. Apparently Hazard didnt think you had it secured. I does look to me like there are brackets. Did you c & p a mounted set up or did you piece together components from a pic like he posted? Regardless its always good to recognize the importance of technical aspects when doing a chop that exposes so much hardware. Cut and paste is fun but it is totally unforgiving and can negate a lot of hardwork.

HAZARD
01-11-2010, 12:55 PM
yeah to me it just looked like it was hanging there. and on VWs iv never seen an application where a rebar wasnt used...i mean you can hack a part your old one to make it fit but most common another one it sent to replace your stock one

PSDavinci
01-11-2010, 02:12 PM
...i mean you can hack a part your old one to make it fit but most common another one it sent to replace your stock one

Not following you.
Are you saying all vdubs come with an intercooler? :suspicious:

HAZARD
01-11-2010, 02:24 PM
no im not. the 1.8T's, the 2.0T, 1.9T, and the 1.4T all have intercoolers. what im saying is any aftermarket intercooler for one of these engines or for someone who did a turbo build on the vr6 or the 2.0L either comes with a replacement rebar or you need to cut a chunk out of your stock rebar to make it fit and then you have to screw/bolt the intercooler to the stock rebar

Enforcer
01-11-2010, 04:41 PM
rebar? gaybar more like, never seen one being used and never used one myself. Not required in most application.
