    (Aveo) Barina SS by Holden

    Such a great small car would go well in Holden's line-up.

    Here is the base car, an SS version and a luxury/sport SS-V with jewel lights and added chrome...

    nice coloring with the red - I like the red too. Nice detail touches with the scripty SS on the rear door and colored grille - very nice.


    are those hubcaps in the first pic? They look really flat - might need a different angle on the rear from the front. Looks like you may have cut and pasted the same wheel angle for both?

    No, they are mags taken from a car, one from the front the other the rear ( you can see the brake in the front wheel only) but they were lined up.

    They look flatter as the angle is sharper than the original pic and that does make them look a bit like hubcaps. But I didn't mind that as this is meant to be the entry level car and they 'could' be caps.

    Cool thanks.

    Welburn thinks it's "hot" and Lutz thinks it's "narsty!" as in good narsty...

    Some have said I should use the darker Aveo lights to match the black trim...

    Or I could just add chrome trim to matched the jewelled head lights as in the bottom pic...

    Maybe you can convince Welburn and Lutz to incorporate the same circular surrounding that Holden uses in their logo for the Chevrolet version.

    I think it rounds out the front clip much better and gives the bowtie a more upscale appearance.
