    Cadillac STS-T ***Updates done to 3D paintjob***

    been working on some paint jobs for my latest creation...Mods are 100% Brushed in or made by filters "except for rims"...so far running on 9 hours of work or more but i plan on keeping it going until im satisfied with it

    BTW attached is the first paintjob...the other one will be made into a 13 Stage "13 colors" 3D paintscheme



    Updated paint #2 and fixed windows:



    C & C would be apreciated!

    CHOP: 99%
    DESIGN: (next time more detail) 81%

    thanks for the feedback...i updated the original post ^^^^ with my first paintscheme...it is a little lighter than the maroon on the XLR you showed me...I am going to do quite a few paint scheme's to practice up on the filters and what not!

    thanks for the reply!

    Re: Cadillac STS-T need opinions!

    the update looks good man but idk about the thing being THAT low. im all for a lowered custom but with it that low it 1) scrapes the ground, 2) allows for minimal steering, and 3) covers up most of the wheels.

    its along the same lines as my friend wants it done...its to simulate the truck has Hydrolics and it would not be driven that way, its able to raise and lower at will!

    those graphics look sick. yeah i was thinkin hydraulics would be the only logical explanation but (i think) it wasn't mentioned anywhere. looks good, but imo that dark red color is the shnitzel .

    Im glad you like the graphics so far...More will come in the future cause im having alot of fun making this truck!

    I Updated my original post ^^^ with the newest additions to the chop..this chop will most likely be a 13 stage paintjob by the time im done with it!...Fixed the windows a bit as well!

    I would move the license plate to the center
    and change the wheels

    looks great otherwise

    That's a very nice chop. Wish I knew how to do that. The wheels look great to me, not like a truck.

    You do take part in the weekly contests Rex Raider puts up don't you? Can't remember everybody's names, but you should if you don't.
