    '04 Cadillac Deville Chop

    Heres my latest chop...

    A 2004 Cadillac Deville

    Mods...
    Cleaned up all the trim, and removed the door handles
    Color change
    Lowered with American Torque Thrust wheels
    Tinted the windows
    Billet grill
    and front body kit air dam

    This is my first time adding a front air dam, it's from a Nissan Skyline.

    Original...



    Chop...



    I think this would be a nice cruiser, I call it "Bling Bling" LOL

    Not too bad, but needs work.

    1) the Color is unrealistic. Over saturated. Loks like you changed it, not natural enough.
    2) It's lowered too much, especially in the front.
    3) Tinted the windows on the driver's side only
    4) Front spoiler doesn't match color wise and seems lopsided.

    I only make these comments so that future chops will be better.

    good effort... it almost looks like a quarter mile drag car... throw some big slicks on the back and that thing looks like it could do it in a hurry!!!

    then add a big motor or a hood scoop on the front... and heck even a roll bar and wheelie bar

    really do it up!

    Anything with 5 spoke mags - especially a Cadillac - has to look good! Good concept.

    Re: '04 Cadillac Deville Chop

    Thanx for the Comments and critiques Rex.

    I guess I did go a little over board on the color,
    but I was trying for a really over the top electric blue.

    I don't know about up there in the frozen north,
    but down here in California it isn't that unusual to see a car this low.
    Can you say Airbags, I knew you could.

    Ooppss on the tinting I didn't even notice.

    On the spoiler, this is the first time doing one of these, will try harder.

    Everybody else, thanx for the compliments.

    The 'Shogun' front valance doesn't fit the car at all. Other than that it's alright.
    "I cannot wait for the new fad to come along, one that doesn't involve making respectable looking cars look as though they were parked nearby when the plastic factory exploded."

    Re: '04 Cadillac Deville Chop

    I gotta say, I like it alot... great cruiser...

    And ya, around Seattle you'll see cars lowered like that, but only in the summer.

    And hoodscoops? What the? No hood scoops, not on a DeVille cruiser...

    Hey, can ya also chop a 2 dr convertible DeVille? See what it looks like?

    I haven't had much time to work on the 'Vert version this week.
    (real life keeps getting in the way )

    So far I have done a coupe conversion, the roof and side glass is on a separate layer so when I get the interior done I can change it to a convertible.

    I'ts still a little rough around the top edge of the door but you get the idea.



    When I get more done to it I'll post it.
