@mehul the thing to keep in mind is, on this forum you will get the very truth when it comes to opinions be it positive or negative, so i would suggest take everything in a positive manner and see these opinions as points and referrences to your future mods.
Post some interior pics please, last time i went to Arush's shop the interiors were being painted and Arush showed me the color of the car, its the brightest silver one can get, almost the color of aluminium without the bluish tint.

Default Excellento!

That Skoda looks fab very unique. Very very nice. We could probably have the muffler go black in color instead of chrome and the tailight if possible can we have it fabricated with just LED in stripes when lit up? The paint job is breathtaking......... A new design for the Lancer too pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! :d

Overall the car is very unique with the Autopsyche Signature design Coolio

Its the forth day coming back to this thread to write my 2 cents.. everyday I stare at the snaps left and right and I will be like.. "hmmm.. Its nice!" and thats it! I just didn't want to pen it down till now just thinking of all the effort that might have went in, for what? a just nice?!? ...

Well as usual the autopsyche finish is awesome!

The two things I would like to improve would be the front wheel arches (its a bit too much) and the rear end..

I am not a good photoshop artist, so I was trying out stuff to "improve" the rear with mspaint. Here are the results.


@BBS a little help here, Can you photoshop something along the lines of pics 2 and 3 below..

I like the second pic, looks more neat with the dual pipes exiting the center.

I like the way this Octi has turned out. The rear could be a bit softer, like the side profile, but it's a head turner for sure!

Congrats for this beauty Mehul and great job Arush!

It was disclosed in another thread. 12L including the used car is the damage I believe.

Thanks guys.. But I had mentioned it before and seems like have to again that octavia has a low boot surface to accomodate the spare wheel.. And seens the car body has been chopped down it was not possible to go for centre dual exhaust or exact replica of a lambo rear..

@ Ricky: Ya buddy that was the plan but for above reason hd to let it go..

Get your exhaust to end in the middle of the car (a half exhaust) and keep the LP640 exhaust for the looks

The factory exhausts on the diesel skoda's do end before the actual dual chrome tips if I remember it correctly

@BBS I raised the black fins on sither sides of the exhaust a bit to reduce the hang on the bumper

@ ARUSH aka Autopsyche

Would the chopping off a monoque chasis compromise the handling dynamics of the car ? Have there been any re-enforcements done on the chasis ? I think NOT. If not then would the car not "sag" after a year or so ?

I am only trying to educate myself, nothing beyond that !! Coz I was looking at making the SX4 into the WRC SX4 a hatch !!!



Cheers
