Also, as many suggested, please remove the sticker in the windshield. I hope the body finish is as good as its seen in the pictures, or else, with matt black, it shows out the imperfections.

btw, what are the performance/suspension mods?
Lifted suspension, chopped wheel arches , free flow exhaust

Even I agree about the one on the front wind shield .but it have to be there ! The pair of White thing protruding out the front bumper is the turn indicators which will be removed.

This a cool looking contessa. Congrats

I do however feels that a lower stance and proper size tyre would have given a cooler look, just my opinion. I love the paint job. Will this color scheme look good in a stock contessa?

Not understood what you meant.

Also, why removed the rear bumper when the front one is kept but re-modelled? The rear looks slicker and sporty. So could you not have removed the front bumper too?

I would like to see the wheel arches back to counter the effect of oversized tyres but in a way to make it sporty too.

I thought the sticker gels in well. Maybe acting like sun-shade too. Maybe also carries your BRATZ lineage. Is the sticker hindering the driver's sight? From the Rear Right Side snap it does not look like so. If it doesn't maybe keep it or resize it to lesser height.

please remove the indicators on the front bumper and try to install something which doesnt protrude out they are spoiling the whole effort of a otherwise beautiful piece of work.

Apart from the Indicators on the front bumper & the large sticker on the front windscreen .. the car looks amazing.

I have been a long time fan of conti's. If i ever buy one this will what it will look like.

Three Cheers to the architect !

foby sebastian-i too agree with karizma devil, the side indicators and the sticker should go which would make the car look mean, if you so badly want the sticker go in for a smaller one which is not so loud . the indicators really looks like some sought of candle stands.

A wide body job is what a conti needs to really look muscular.

But this is close. Nice job.

Beautiful paint job, but why the sticker? Just seems out of place.

Good Stuff Foby !!

Car Looks amazing !! love those tyres too.

So did you raise the suspension with the rudder spacers at the ends or did you do something else?

Why don't you share the alloy , tyre specs for others too ! Am sure many conti owners would love that bit of info as many have been trying to source good alloys for their rides.

also, is the front bumper made of metal or fibreglass?
