So I am starting to brainstorm design ideas for a custom rear piece, thanks to that body kit thread from crossie.
I recently bought some quad tips to put on my car and was planning on using them in my body kit, but I have really been seriously considering the following style. What do you guys think? (Sorry for the large pics, how do I resize them again?) Also, I know a lot of these cars exhausts don't actually attach to the exhaust 'tips' (or whatever the appropriate term would be since they aren't attached) which I don't mind, I like the look and I think our car could definitely pull it off if done right, and I like doing things right...



and on an actual Volvo

Re: (mofolicious)

I thought there was a way to resize the pic without actually downloading/hosting it, as I just took them from google searches and left them stock size...BTW, if anyone wants to buy that Camaro I will do a straight up trade of my car for theirs, and I'd maybe even throw in a kidney.

Damn threads like these.... Now I'm madly photoshopping instead of doing homework.


I like how the cutouts follow the lines nicely on the Volvo posted above. I think achieving 'flow' will be the hardest part of doing a custom rear like this. (But after seeing your C30 lip progress, I'm sure you're more than capable!)

Edit due to my inability to type properly ha

LOL, me too! Except I saved the pics to my computer and am going outside to wrap up my work on the lip before it gets dark...the last few nights I have been working until the wee hours of the morning outside my apt with a 500w floodlight, my roomies were complaining about the chemical smells.
Some day I will have a garage/shop to work in. That will be a glorious day! All nighters will be soooo much easier!

Re: (Moofluffen)

LOL, yeah, I do the same thing here but outside, luckily this last week has been amazing weather, only needed a light jacket to stay comfortable. When I installed my sway bar I finished doing it with about 6 inches of snow surrounding my car and a plastic bag under me to prevent getting soaked.
People with garages don't know how fortunate they are!

Re: (carreragt7)

here's my contribution to it...


(sorry for the crappy photoshop, but I think you get the point...)

and slightly offtopic: I changed my H&R springs in the middle of the night with about 50cm of snow ...
wasn't that funny either! (but WORTH IT!
)

Re: (crossie)

Oh man, this one time, I parked in the wrong spot in my garage, and the split in the two pads was kinda at a funny angle while I was working, and it was very inconvenient. You guys are lucky!


Dude, again I am totally in for a custom rear piece! Wish I had more time to do this stuff!

LOL, me too! I am SUPER busy right now with school starting to wrap up and get into the end of all major projects and then finals. I am supposed to have the front lip project completed by mid April, which I think I will get done on time. But at the same time I have a ton of other work in other classes that I have to prepare for. Yay. I love school.
I have huge plans for working on my car during the summer break. I am going to be working full time though, but I think I will schedule a complete day off in the middle of the week that I dedicate to working on my car projects. That way I will have more time. No homework will really help too...

Re: (euro3b)

Indeed. All I ever see driving those couches are farty old guys trying to look 'sporty' or whatever lexus is touting these days in their latest batch of expensive camrys with shiny bits on them.

LOL. I didn't think the Lexus was that bad, but I do agree that those types are usually not popular with the younger crowd... I really do like the Camaro and the Heico setup tho. I'm just wanting to mix it up a bit because it seems like there are only 8 or so different configurations that most people have on our cars.
