    Cruze Hatch concept mods

    The concept looks a LOT better than the sedan but still has that goofy front end. A couple mods would make it look a lot better.

    grille adjustments include tweaks to make it more like the 'Nox grille and give it more character.
    revised headlight housings
    revised hood and cutline
    shrunk Chevy logo
    added some height to the grille bar to give it a little more thickness

    all minor changes but I think the results are pretty clean and subtle

    MOD

    I agree with your headlight and hood mods, I did the same on my Cruze 2-door hatch a while back. The extra headlight that you removed takes nothing from the function on the light and makes it look much cleaner. I could go either way on shrinking the Bow Tie.

    thanks Slideways

    IMHO the bow tie looks, based on high res images, to be about big if not bigger than the 'Nox which to me seems completely goofy to me.

    It does look big, but I think you might have gone a bit too small. Maybe bump it up until the top and bottom don't extend beyond the grille bar.

    Could you do a photo with the grill insert on the hood gone?
    3 stacked grills are a little much, IMO.

    Nice work (though I actually prefer the original headlights). Can you do a Holden version?

    +1 on the orig headlights. Smaller bowtie looks better.

    Those look pretty sharp. Do you think you can do the same with the Impala please?

    The headlights look very nice in the flesh. It's one of the things I like about the car. Was walking to my car tonight and saw a cruze, looks great in the flesh as always. If only they had sorted out the rear quarter plastic piece.

    The headlight change alone was worth the time involved.

    I think the headlights look much better, but I'm not digging the shrunken bow-tie. I think the bow-tie and cross beam should be moved lower, though.

    I always appreciate feedback (good or bad) but your response gives me nothing as far as a reason why.

    Is it just a general feeling that you don't like it or do you have any specific details you'd care to share?

    thanks!
