I've not changed the colour but I've done lots of the usual led sled stuff. This could be taken much further I suspect, but I'm lacking the skills to do it to a standard I'm happy with so I've left it at this.
raked rear screen, chopped roof, lowered, spats, lakes pipes, frenched headlights, removed door handles, reprofiled rear door and side window.
@volksangyl : you have breathed new life into an old tired car. Okay, I'm going to use your image as a starting point and *will make it so*... The Vanguard is going to get chopped (a lot!). I'll create a new thread to show the build progress.
thanks, once again - even my missus is starting to like the car now, even though it is only a photochop image!

Glad to be of service phase2tony. I reckon if the B pillar were raked forwards and better triple exit lakes were digitally fitted along with the wheels from a previous chop it would look even better still but I seemed to run out of skills.
WOW some of these chops are out of this world, they look perfect and put together to perfection... i have been doing photoshop for years but I'm no where near as good lol.. but i am trying, i love photoshop LOADS but i have also done some chops on Paint.net which is free to use so i use it on my work PC ;-)
Well here are a couple of mine, not all are finished mainly because i get frustrated because i know what i want to do but some times cant do it....
These are Car-Toons (renders) that i started to do but never finished :-( i struggled with them, i did these on Paint.net
(This is a Salt Racer prototype that a friend was going to build but he has since closed his Hot Rod Body business down :-(
I will be watching this thread a lot :-) keep the cracking work coming
After the previous inspiration, can someone show me what my car will look like if it were to become a lead sled
Well Volksangel has shown that the Phase2 has potential, just a set of fender skirts and a serious drop would transform it dramatically. Waveman 1500 made a few suggestions on Dez's Budget hotrod thread, so I took those as my inspiration. Photoshopping not of the highest quality, but you get the idea:
Chopped two door.
And this is what occured to me when I noticed the unusual wheelbase / overall length ratio:- Altered wheelbase gasser!! What do you think?
