Great going so far. the car is turning out to be a real looker. I wish something could be done to the A/B/C pillars and door to curve in a little more. I know that is not feasable but would have given it a superb look. Its actually the side of the car which makes it look a little odd.

Rated is 5 star btw Well deserved!

Wow! I am so glad this is not just another Paint/Sticker job. This is some serious mod. And it's already looking awesome. Bring it on, Ramesh!!

This suspense is actually killing a lot of anxious minds. I guess the makeover is going to be one hell of a mod. Hope Ramesh has the mod patented coz its likely to get copied fast enough.

@ramesh request you to pls keep this thread updated with the mod process pics.

It looks good.

But, I seriously wish you could something about the rear!

For me, it is very difficult to visualize how the end product will be and so waiting for the mod to be completed.

Exactly my point! A/B/C pillars needed to be more curved towards the inside. As of now its a BOX. Whatever this project adds up to should not be an eyesore because of these pillars spoiling it.

I think touching these pillars may affect the overall stability of the vehicle but again, this car is not made to Race ferraris.

^^ completely agree, the pillars are too flat and bland, very eager to see if there is any mod planned to touch this up!!

Thanks for the encouraging outpouring friends, my cup of gratitude brimeth.

As a few of you mentioned, I did at an initial glace notice the upright tumblehome/ boxiness of the ABC pillars - it is however beyond the pervue of this project given the budget constraints. So all in all a bit of DLO/ greenhouse camoflaging is the need of the hour through suitably blackened pillars. Also such technical structural chages such as increasing the tumble home angle of the A/B/C pillars calls for fine engineering structural rigidity control which through FEA etc. and wont work here.

The budget also prevents extensive changes to the rear...

In short the rear and the sides are merely intended to inform the eye that this lady is well turned out and different from her original plain Jane countenance.

Default An Intro to the other side

Enough of busy prose and on to the form.

Now that the front has found it's shape, foggies carefully nested within her fins...

The rear must follow suit - but not to that extensive an extent - I spent more of my budget on facial surgery for good reason is her rejoinder

brilliant effort man,
you have really used the logan's boxiness to full advantage here.
that squared up front grill is surely falling in line with the rest of the car.
looks far more balanced and aggressive.
glued to this thread..

Thanks Superboy44.
I must also add a gracious thankyou for the 5 star rating and a Hot thread listing - Is it the mods or the kind participants who decides this honour ?- I wonder - not sure how it works. Thanks all the same gentlemen.
