Awesome job, the back could have been better but who cares. You are a lucky boy to have something as unique as this in the whole country.

Enjoy the attention!!

At the modifier man you are too good, I think you need to open branches and I think bangalore should be a must you will rock here.

I really like this. Just to mention, i dont mean to offend Autopsyche, I think he's done some great work in general but I've noticed its a trend to blame the owner of the car with a 'hey looks like autopsyche just went with the owner on this' if you dont like something. I think its a bit unfair because at the end of the day, even the artist is as much a part of the end product as the owner. Again, I dont mean to offend anyone but just thought I'd mention.

@Zahir

+1 to what you said afterall anyone who goes for a "modification " depends on the modifier / tooner. So the modifier or tooner as I like to call it, should put his foot down & say I will not do it.

Money is not everything or is it ??

An old world word called "ethics" should have some value, or does it mean nothing in today's world ??





Cheers

I'm glad you see it that way. The chap who did this car really had the fortitude to go all the way with this one. That in my books is commendable. Its different when you strap on skirt or a bumper, but when you do a conversion and its still easy on the eyes, more power to you brother!

Zahir, for general information, this Skoda's exterior and interior wasmostly according to my ideas, Mehul just gave me pointers on his requirements and his likes and dislikes.

This ratio of my contribution and customer's requirements also varies a lot from customer to customer.

Sometimes some are adamant (like a audi grill or bmw grill on a car) which otherwise as a business would be foolish to turn down, but still have to go ahead and execute it. Even if i like it or not personally.

Sometimes its very flexible like this Skoda, where I had a free hand where i could do anything i like with the car.

We just cant generalize the idea that modder and customer have equal say in every case.

Hey dude, firstly, good job on the car. I totally agree, you cant always have an equal ratio. At the end of the day, you need to make the client happy and as a rule of thumb, the clients always right (i'm in the creative field, I head a design agency so I've learnt this the hard way!) My point was that it seems unfair to totally blame the customer each time the job doesn't turn out to someones liking. Just to clear the air, I'm a big fan of some of your work and I didn't mean to irk offence.

Oh dont worry no offence taken. The way we have been working for the last 4 years since the first car we did, we have been all open to appreciation and criticisms equally. Since design appeal varies vastly in every creative field its impossible to have all positive opinions and its totally understandable.
