I think the seats are too big and high for the windshield. IMO don't go too crazy with the vents, keep it clean. Still looks amazing though. Keep going on it.

dropped the seats lower
added wheels (do they look right?)
overall work
re-designed the rear end

cheers =]

thanks for the c+c ken =] i wont be adding any more vents, think it looks ok atm on that front but i agree that more would spoil it

Looking much better! Seats look great, rear end looks better. Can't wait to see the rest of it.

not been able to work on it much since my last post, my external hard drive died, which killed all my files =/, managed to get this back though luckily. Im still working on the car but i wanted to try out a back ground in the mean time. Does it suit the car?

I think it could suit the background if it had the right reflections. Something that's bugging me is the far side rear fender, it seems to be too far forward, something with the perspective.

and thank you to whoever rated this a 5 star post :D

You don't have to take my advise on this. I have never done a full brush like this. However, I know it's a lot of work. I think I would maybe change the colour of the car to something darker so it matches the mood of the background. As for reflections...do some research and look at cars and such things in a similar environment. When you look at other cars make sure you look at how much contrast is in the reflections themselves, it might be surprising.

Could I get a link or something to that bg? It looks cool.

Also I'm really happy to see someone brushing again on here, we haven't seen someone do that in too long.

some links would be good thanks if you dont mind

This was the only one I could find right away. I will keep looking. This isn't a really good example either since it was taken while the car was moving, but the way the colours in the reflections work is good. It took me a while to get my head wrapped around it all, and since I have I haven't chopped. Basically think of the paint on the car as a coloured mirror. I don't know if this helps or not, let me know.
