Can some please shop this hot rod flatz sublime green and white wheels please and thankyou
Start looking at limo style hearses then instead with windows all the way around. They already look like a wagon on steroids.
I heart cars turned into trucks mostly. You should've PSed a Ridley or Cushman into the bed to get the scale right - or left the tailgate down to give the correct length.
That's a nice wagon with really clean lines stock. Hardtop or delivery would just make it unbalanced. Go with simple, but out-of-the-ordinary changes.
I'd lose the visor and heavy tooth grille and go with a sixties theme:
Maybe a dual headlight and grille from an Olds F-85, or a 1962 Mercury Monterey grille/lights sectioned to fit. Something like that.
Then a sixties-style paint job, simple two-tone metallics or metallic and solid.
For wheels, you could do period mags, but I'd go with an interesting wheel cover. Say a 1963 Ford Galaxie tri-bar (not sure of your wheel size) or maybe an aftermarket (Cal Custom or other) dog-dish with a knockoff spinner.
Likewise, I dig your wagon as-is. Then again - that isn't what this thread is about. Big fan of new larger diameter el-cheapo Centerline Smoothies on old cars. They work. Another:
I know this is majorly OT but it is an office prank. Can one of you guys photoshop some Baileigh logos on here? make this the Baileigh Rig?
It will go nice with Tech Week!
Johnny Raven - Do you have a head-on shot of your car?
I'd like to take a crack at some grille swaps. I have some ideas but they photoswap better head-on.
Thanx for all the input guy's. This is FUN and Cheap! That Hog hauler is awsum! reminds me of my last ute! Original Patina very close to getting the grinder out! Rot 'n Kustom leave my '55 desoto grill alone! Thanx all!
Whatever you can do.... roadster, chopped, flamed, stinger????
can someone please add some wide whites on the rear skinny whites on the front raise the front up some ..and give it a two tone paint job white on top light yellow on the bottom ..thanks
can some please make thi hotrod flatz sublime with white rims, thanks
do it to it!
Okay Can someone put my avatar or logo on the box?...... In her hands!
Oh hell yeah Creeper! I'm thinking gasser style, radiused rear fenders, straight axle, big & little's, blower out the hood, maybe black. I've wanted one of these cars for years. '55 or '56, I don't care.
patience dude, theres only a handful of photoshop people here.
now youve posted a picture, im sure it`ll get done.
and when you say, white wheels, you mean wide white walls.
Do what? gotta be specific.
were not miracle workers, if someone does it, theyre gonna need a decent size image of your logo.
not a tiny avatar, cant do anything with that.
mrjynx, Seems like there are only a couple of Photoshoppers on here. I do believe I'm gonna buy Photoshop and learn how to use it. Between all the cars & trucks people put on here and all the ideas stacked in the back of my dusty ass old brain, I just gotta. Plus it would be lots more fun than doing the chores my wife wants me to do.
Sorry Man, will be patient, I actually mean white rims,
sublime green... white rims
Here you go.
You dont actually need to buy photoshop to do this, (photoshops very expensive btw)
There are FREE alternatives.
Theres GIMP, http://www.gimp.org/screenshots/
theyre the most popular, there is a learning curve, so dont be disheartened if you cant just "figure it out" without tutorials.
Theres also, inkscape, which is a different method, it doesnt let you edit pictures, but it uses vectors, which are used to create t-shirt designs, and advertising signs etc.
Sorry I don't know much about photoshop.
Nicely done Russian! It would look a *tad* better with white window frames too. The closer to (optically balanced) 70/30 split two-tone split the better.
Heres your little eye dude, vectored.
whoever, can put him on whatever you want now.
One more then back to the cars.
HAHAHHA oh, I didnt see the colour one... haha...
The thumbnail pic is the original size.
Electrodude, your new avatar is killin' me!
