What do you guys think?

Postby BoricuaTEK02 » Tue May 06, 2014 11:45 pm

Just bought this 2005 Vibe GT and decided to give photoshop a whirl after not touching the program for over 3 years. It's not perfect but this is the direction I want this car to go. Comments and opinions are well appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome to genvibe!

looks like a good clean photoshop Image

Those wheels look good on that color, especially with the drop

Were you going to make the fog lights the turn signals or use a yellow turn signal bulb? (White front turn signals are really hard for other drivers to see)

Thank you! I was just going to change most bulbs to LEDs. I was even thinking a clear or dark corner signal reflector with amber/orange led. I know that would be hard to come by but it's only a photoshop. :)

Very nice Photoshop! Best part is that it is very possible to do this to your car. I've retrofitted my headlights, and I've seen ways online of making clear reflectors. Surprisingly, the hardest part of this job would be the side trim removal, as you'd need to fill the holes and get them painted.

Thank you for the heads-up o the side trim. I thought it was just industrial strength adhesive or something. I guess a little Bondo won't hurt.

Yup yup! I can't do body kits. I feel like it wouldn't do the car justice. I would add a lip-kit at most. I did manage to take the roof rack bars off today and I'm not entirely thrill by the missing gap/space/holes it leaves behind. I know it's off the subject of "Photoshop and Photography" and don't want to get in trouble. I'll mention it in a new thread.

Not to worry. We aren't too heavy on topics, so long as it's relevant to the thread.

Sweet deal on the carid.com site! I'll probably get that ordered next week. Thank you!

After a little more Photoshop, I'm starting to like my little beast :D ...
