No on the mags! Here's a rendering I did for the brother of a friend of mine, a '47 but the theme still applies. Lowered, flippers, skirts, mild trimming.
Well, I like the look with the mags, too. The good thing is, I could have two sets of wheels and have either look that I wanted. Like 'em both, thanks, guys!
Hey @madfish ..You posted an image awhile back titled "photoshop bait.jpg"..Looks like you finally caught a moose.
Just a couple of minor mods.......
Could I see the white nova with with a blue top using the color from the other nova
Can't see much at the resolution of this image
Moose, the 70's are back.
Back on HAMB-friendly cars/styles, guys.....
I thank what all of you who can do the changes we owe debt of gratitude. These renditions are awesome and spur many ideas. With the trend of 50's cars with completly stock bodies with all trim in place with a little lowering and wheels I'll ask too After 5 yrs I'm looking for a little change that can be reversed if I ever want to.
Lower the front of my 56 Victoria 1-1/2 to 2" add 15" torque thrust gray wheels, black walls, and remove the skirts. Thanks
Epy, i can't reply to your pm. Do you have "conversation" turned off or something?
One more request could the front wheels be centered in the fender well
Not HAMB Friendly but I'm sure it bumped the sales of Mavericks! I like it.
Madfish thank you, just what I was hoping for.
Hi Moose. Didn't get it painted yet. Could you make my RPU a satin black. With bright red steel wheels and small center caps please. Thanks Moose
Here it is
Thank You very much Moose. Appreciate it. Bob........................
Would be nice to see the blue one in black with the original wheels and ride height ? as I have a black one
Does anyone here think this Buick would look good with the headlights lowered, (and fender lights shaved)?
The video picture shows the lights from the back, to better show the working space.
(i.e., the closer, the lower).
Thanks. This thread alone would make the HAMB a great place!
Looks good both ways..Nice car
Could they go even a bit lower?
Good ideas, Rot 'n Kustom. Simple, suble, and effective. The side trim looks great, and the wheel covers would be a natural. (I have '55 Packards on my Chevy!)
You guys (including 'moose, R 'n K, madfish, James D, and others) have some impressive skills. Your talents, creativity, and generosity (especially) is much appreciated!
(It must take a lot of time finding the right bits and parts, at just the right angles.)
Here they are a little lower and about as low as I think they can go. If you look at the rear view example where I lowered them I think you run out of clearance with the fenders going any lower
Thanks moose looks good I didn't know somebody had a pic of my Buick in here haha I like it!
Thanks for the kind words, 'Mo. Yes, finding the right bits and especially the right angle can take time. Surprisingly, sometimes the hardest photo to find is a full frontal grille shot at the right angle. Most car photos tend to be 3/4 shots. And I caution builders that just because a change looks like a "bolt-on" in photo-chop, doesn't mean it's that easy in real life!
Mo ,I would also like to thank you for the kind words.Most people don't know that Photoshop can also be used as an artiest tool...You don't necessarily need to use bits and pieces from other images to create a look although it does make it easier and we often do that. Here's a pickup that I drew from scratch...I didn't want it to look like a photo but if you want you could make it look totally realistic.
That's great, 'moose!
Like before, very much appreciated!
Wow!!! I'm speechless! Truly awesome talent!
