Got any photoshop pics of your car?

Basically I thought it would be cool to take pics of our cars from before (or shortly after) we began aeromodding, and photoshop it using all the information you have learned from ecomodders....

Here is mine. The original pic had no aero mods, pretty much stock except for some aesthetic mods

That's where my forum pic came from ;-)

I have a larger version sitting somewhere, if I have time I'll dig it up tonight. (Needs some editing anyway, I took off that mirror)

Nice job. In that pic, it reminds me of the old GM Impact, or EV1, or whatever it was called.

Here is what I would LIKE to build ( an electric powered MX-3 with supplemental power provided by a small biodiesel engine.)

Here's a before and very much after of Skeeter



The wheels aren't too bad so I left them. Ok, I was lazy and had work to do.

It's not my Civic ... but it might as well be. I liked this profile so I worked on it instead of taking my own.

This version does not have the front skirts. That bulgy front bumper has a variable size inlet, properly diffused air duct sealed to the rad. There's another version with a top chop, but the chances of even going this far are not great. I can save more building solar collectors. But if I do nice fiberglass work, I might sell copies.
