Hi,

I've had my first stab at modifiying a car. I chose one that I didn't really like the look of, I tried to make it better.

(It's a Saab, if you didn't realise.)

Can you give me pointers please.

I like what you've done with it,

Not sure though - are they BMW alloys you have put on it? :P

//edit, actually.. Scrap them, there isn't another piece of chrome on that car. Powdercoat :)

Powdercoat is basically a painted finish, normal paint will not last through cleaning brake dust & road grime so a powdercoat is sprayed on a surface & baked to harden it.

I'd go with a really light grey with your color.

Unless you can find somthing on the car to replace with chrome to keep the wheels from sticking out like a sore thumb :P

The new rims just make it look odd..... they'd look perfect on a sports car....... but on the saab?

I just prefered the original mod - however graphically - its always good to play ;)
