Not to be harsh or an ass but you ruined one of my favorite cars that I've seen on Oznium.
Certain styles on certain vehicles are simply impossible.

mondo shift arm would have been better on a manual... The exterior is lacking something extreme to go with the Rat Fink feel, or something annoyingly rice to go with the "Rice Fink" tag, like the long ass exhaust pipes or major over sized front lip...

Rice fink ! biglaugh.gif I dig the graphic and the white walls are neat, but I agree with Black that the theme needs to be taken farther .

Hmm...definitely different. icon_confused.gif I like some aspects of it,but somethings seem to clash,such as your racing style buckets,they just look out of place. icon_eek.gif I like the old school Wink mirror,haven't seen those in awhile. icon_cool.gif

yeah. the racing seats are there simply cuz they're waaaaaaay lower than stock seats. I like the feel of sitting low in a car. and stock xB seats are crazy tall

Looks good but you'll never see me in one.

Also, this is the 1 time I approve whitewalls.

What's going on with the hood anyway ? I can't tell what's finish and what's reflection in that picture . Are you in the process of going to bare metal ?

I've seen Jorge's car in person once, last summer, and was impressive in person. I wouldn't do most of this to mine, but I have to admire how unique it all is. I kind of dig the rusted hood too . . .

heh in general I don't like the rusted hood but it honestly works awesome on that car, I'd loose the back decal for some woody vinyls or airbrushing.
