Front part is acceptable except the bonnet mod, but the rear is not a good mod. please try to retain the stock rear it would look better than what is at present.

IMO this belongs to the weird and whacky mods. A waste of time and money.

Hehe Oops my bad didnt see it properly .
Agreed classic is the way to go .
However i was wondering if the roof and the pillars were chopped off and replaced by a low positioned and curvy roof and pillars like the original R8 .and the hood was coloured blue (or a custom hood ) . It would look a bit different . But as they say the structure rigidity might be hampered in doing this .

I'm only praying that the car was picked up from a scrapyard and that a perfectly good car was not wasted in the making of this.

hey tuhin

the front looks good, great job there, very sporty
i bet a lot went into makin it a 2 door

can you go into the details of that transformation

the back however lags behind, could have looked better

why didnt you go for some vibrant colours like red and white, would have been supercool

The car looks a 2 door from outside. The doors open from inside only. It has been fixed with an air vent type covering that merges with the bodyline. Blue is my mum's fav colour so retained it.The photoshop work luks cool cud've been better. There is nothin done to the roof or B pillars. As said earlier this is purely on nuts n bolts can be restored with ease.

Managed to get aeroplane door hinges, soon will fit it, a moonroof aspired.
oh damn! horrendous transformation! what a waste!
sorry for being overly critical, but i couldn't resist myself not being blunt.

We clocked 140kph on Tumkur road to test it. It opened well, the car felt planted however we were not really confi coz the car is a wee bit heavy with all addons. Need some help on the power to weight ratio.

Will add more pics.Also attached the beast that followed us jus in case we need to be lugged
This is the perfect example of "how to get the worst out of best". I am sure this guy wold have spent huge amount on this car but end of the day what ever he has spent & time taken to make this car is getting know for its what ever looks, when you take the car out it should show your attitude & for all the deep pocket guys who don't have idea about modifying, if you don't know how to spend money on your car then keep it stock don't spoil the beauty of the car.

If you look the car from back it looks really bad.

Naah.. That is no paint job. See the minimal bubbling on the rear pannels. I guess this is a wrap.

The prob i see with matte black finish is that unless the car has a good body kit, it tends to look too plain.
