so far so good, colour change is nice, the gaping hole in the front needs some additional highlights as its to dark but so far its pretty decent :)

cheers dude, i was going to add highlights to the front of it, i just got to tired last night haha. dont really know what style/type of wheels to put on it though :/ i thought the colour change wasnt to shabby either, but not sure iff i will stick with it, thinking of focus rs green. but yet again, im not sure.

just an update of where i am at, i know the wheels area bit tatty at the minte, i need to finish fiddling with them a little bit. added a neon backlight at the front so looks like there is a blue glow coming throungh the mesh. c+c please.

nice touch with the backlight, i think it needs a skirt of sorts to join the wide arches, although thats just my opinion :D

yeah i havent got round to that bit yet, as im doing alot on it compared to normal, im doing it day by day so i dont end up rushing things.

need to add some little vents into the bonet, dont know if i should CF it or not :/

opinions?

depends what style your going for IMO....

I don't think the wheels really fit the style. And the back one is too small. I agree about adding a sideskirt. The backlight looks well done, but the reflections and ighlights and shadows on the car suggests it's outside in the side, where as the front looks like it's been shot at night. Just my opinion.

would take a massive amount of work to widebody in real life, but it would be one of a kind.

i cant wait to see how this turns out.

okie dokey, rims, your right its all down to personel taste but for me these are a hell to the no lol they just dont seem to suit the style you appear to be going for. if your sticking with these deffinatley sort the rear as it is to small, side skirt is deffinatley needed so have a good hunt round.

The front.......ooooo the front.......remove the blue kind of neony glowy stuff, again with the style its a hell to the no (im so putting that saying in my signature!) i'd say brighten it up but dont put neons in it distracts from the rest of the work :D

i like the rims, but i see what you mean, when it comes to the style of a car though, i dont know what i like, i like little bits of everything so its kinda like a frankenstien car haha, and ill remove the glow, possibly try to pick one style for the whole car and go for it. but thanks for all the input guys.

i am so tempted to buy a ford ka and do a wide boy, or possibly wide boy my grande punto :) not sure, its easier for me as i work in the mechanic, bodyshop garage on the local army camp :) so im good with cars.
anyway, ill have a fidddle and post some pics soon.

ooo, matching rim colour.....suddenly i like these (well feckin done!!!!!) i thought i told u to lose the glow lol bad cain!!!!!!!, extend the side skirt down to make it fuller and it will feet the look much better.

grey bonnet, not sure if this will work but you proved me wrong with the rims so lets see what happens

okie dokey, the heart logo on the rear window is to bright,with the sun shining on it as it is it would be hardly visible due to glare so tone it down a wibble. YOU LOST THE GLOW :D :D :D WINNAGE!!!!!

make the skirt a bit thicker still really make it fat and bulky to match the arches :D
