    When they fell off the T body dropped another 6" ...

    Not sure how much the Hispano chassis is in scale with the body, though. I didn't feel like spending half an evening researching which wheelbase that particular H6 was. Whatever the case I reckon there'd be room for a Type 68 V12.

    Thanks Moose........ What do you think? Yea or Nay ???
     
  7. Sorry but I would have to say Nay especially on such a great looking PU...They just don't fit the style at all!

    Wondering what some light tint and either Chrome Reverse w/wide whites or Torque Thrusts w/blackwalls would would like. I don't plan to do too much to it, but nothing wrong with seeing other options.

    I installed the Aerostars, dropped the front a solid 2". To me it now looks like it always should have; doesn't look dropped. I like the slight forward stance. Don't plan to drop the rear, but maybe some day down the road I'll change my mind.

    Thanks Moose,
    These help quite a bit. Both look good, but I think I'm really leaning towards the TT's (I think I'd do the solid chrome versions). I also think I might lean toward 16s. Tint is exactly what I want. Just enough to cut down on some of the NM heat without looking dark. I'm not ready to pull the trigger, but this gives me something to stare at for a while. Thanks again.

    Hell, if Photoshop could do that I'd have Photoshop, a space/time warping garage, more cars than Mr. Leno, and a grin you couldn't budge with a nuclear blast. :D
     
  23. You all do FANTASTIC work in Photoshop!!! I never got around to getting a real copy of Photoshop, so I just mess around with MSPaint a little.
    I try to find a photo online that is of a sufficient size & resolution and right click and SAVE AS onto my desktop. Right click on it and OPEN WITH and select PAINT.
    I use the "Free Form Selection" and simply draw a line across the gravel and up & over the wheels/tires an approximate amount that I want to "lower" the car, and simply drag the ground and the tires UP into the body (which I learned the hard way was far easier than trying to actually lower the body). It'll leave a gap in the gravel, but doing another "Free Form Selection" and copying a small, random, patch of gravel and then using Copy and then Paste all over the hole in the gravel, you can "fix" the holes that you made. (Check out the sky above the car - I intentionally did a little more crude job with the clouds so that you could see how I've done it.)
    Obviously you can't (easily) change things like paint color or wheels & tires unless you get really good with the Copy & Paste from another photo that you have open in MSPaint
    I also like to mess with background things just to see if anyone notices. You can "borrow" pieces of the car to "fix" things like trim & glass, or "borrow" things like bricks to mess with the house in the background. "Hmmm.... I thought that house had more windows on that wall....???" Enjoy!

    That came out pretty darned good. Have you ever tried the free program Gimp. It has quite a few good tools to let you be a bit more creative than MS Paint. I used to play around with paint until my daughter who is a graphics designer let me use her version of Photoshop and the rest is history.

  30. @themoose - Thanks! I've had a lot of fun with my friends over the years using Paint. I've heard of Gimp, but have never actually sat down, installed it or tried it. Life just moves too fast when I'm not in the office working. Someday I'll slow down a little.
    For what it's worth, I also use a free photo handler / viewer called Irfanview. LOVE it for batch resizing, renaming, cropping, tweaking overexposed or badly lit photos, etc. (Google it or download it from CNET, etc.) It's no Photoshop either, but it's FAR better than the standard Windows photo viewer that comes preinstalled on most PCs now. One really minor Irfanview feature that I use often and love is dragging a box around the photo to create a Crop border and then being able to drag it bigger or smaller on any edge without having to start all over again. I also use the Batch Resize/Rename feature for getting the photos from my phone down to a reasonable size (from the 5 MB/ea. that my phone is stuck on). Did I mention that it was FREE? I have even sent this guy a few bucks over the years because I like it THAT much!
    I'll also have to find some of the other Paint photos that I've modified and post them here some time.
