Too much time and love put into the original to embrace the changes.

Glad you are enjoying the car... and making it "your own".
Happy cruisin',
Rob

I like both versions. I think the rear window needs to be restyled though but over all, I like it.

I agree, the back window shape & size doesn't look "right" to me. I thought it looked good before. It looks good now too. I tend to forget that flat black & red aren't played out in every town since they are online.

Amen! More power to him for making it his own, thats what this is all about. I like both versions though. I agree about the back window 100%

Needs larger diameter wheels and tires, they look ASS . . . and show off the thick stubby body and horrible top profile WAY too much.

Let's all be honest here-all the entire ride needs a good change up and re-finish, top to bottom, the dimensions are all wrong with it.

Yeah, not feelin the shape of that rear window. Probably looking for a little improvement in visibility but it just doesn't work. I think it should be wider at the top and shouldn't go all the way to the seam at the top, or it should be lower and narrower across the bottom. Maybe he's thinking along the lines of a spoke of the iron cross shape :dunno:

I knew someone could relate.

I am glad that the new guy is loving it and he likes what he is doing to it. I am in no way bashin' him. Heck, I had flat black paint purchased when I built it and changed my mind at the last second.

I have to disagree on the top profile being off. But once again... you know what they say about opinions...
