Default Islero's Accord

Hey guys my latest piece of work. Donor car is an Accord 2.4 as you can see.
I have always thought the Indian Accord had great modification potential, and that it would look fantastic if modded right. I wasnt old enough nor could I afford to mod it, so I just did it virtually!!

Spent a lot of time modifying this one, and it was no mean feat to say the least. Anyways, enjoy!

Original:




Islero version:



Please tell me what you guys think about it.


Cheers,

Islero

QUICK! remove the rear door and add a B pillar in front of the rear glass then itll be like perfect.... The car is looking super duper hot even as it is. Maybe ill use this pic to get someone to agree to let me do this to their accord if you permit me to use it that is heh.

I was looking at the car and suddenly thought "OMG I havent done anything to the side skirts" so here they are, all new sporty sideskirts......

And a new mesh grille...........

So what do you guys think of it now, eh?

Nice work. You should always try to put parts (for example: Skirts in the second modified pic) which are of very good picture quality. In the second pic you can actualyl see the Noise in the skirt. You can superficially do it using the smudge tool also!!

Yeah actually you can see some noise, but thats not because of the picture size of the skirt donor, but because of some serious skewing and transforming I did to it!!

Excellent! and hey can u turn around the side skirts? the fat part should be towards the rear coz u dont have the rear door anymore... and also change the rims to a set which are not that negative offset as this one, if not that then u should push the tires out a bit and flare the fenders and rear panel then the rims will look positioned in proportion to the car.

Cheers~

Ok heres the latest version.

Autopsyche I couldnt do everyhting in your long list of suggestions man, but I did manage to straighten the rear wheel out, and I also blended in the sideskirt better, although I couldnt reverse it, because no amount of skewing seemed to be enough to make it look quite right....I also straightened out a few other minor details ( like a mesh on the far side grille which wasnt there before).


Anyways, here it is now.....




Cheers,

Islero

The rear wheel is just not looking right. Doesn't gel properly. Other than that, nice attempt.
