    New guy here.... Pontiac Solstice

    Hey people, my name is Chris and I was sent over here from another site to show some of my chops.

    This one is not completed yet, but it's close enough to post.

    Original here:



    And the chop in progress here:

    Welcome to GMI Chris, your chop looks great, minus the black rims.

    Welcome Chris!

    Pretty good quality chop!

    IF you would want to win some of those contests we have here, you are going to have to be the best of the best. Ultra-creative. I have seen some very good chops, good quality, but all they did was change wheels, grille, color, and things like that, (and those chops didn't win). Keep up the good work.

    Happy Holidays!
    I'll make a new sig. Later.

    The hood and grille look really good, but it looks like the rear tire doesn't fit in the car.

    Good job.. I tell you I'd love to see those snout holes up on the hood- just above the hood opening and the bumper.

    Nice chop. I like the orange color. Also, great looking Colorado.

    Re: New guy here.... Pontiac Solstice

    Hey,
    Good Job!
    My only suggestions for further reiterations would be to continue the silver grille trim over to the rest of the front. A border of silver around the foglights/brakeducts, and on the bottom grille, but only on the top part of it; no silver horizontal bit on the bottom of the bottom grille.

    Hope I haven't confused you any, just what I think will bring it all together. Welcome to GMI

    NICE! I'm loving the hood bulge. Packing a LS7 in there?

    Thanks for the welcome guys! Yes, it is my Colorado, I love it. In fact, I was sent over this way from my ColoradoFans forum.

    Thanks for all of the tips... I'll see what I can do. And yeah, if this car were real, it would have an LS7 in it.

    The Hot Rod magazine Solstice is the sickest GM car I've seen in years, and Mallett also produces some killer Solstices. Maybe one day I'll have the $$ to upgrade into one.

    And I am not sure about entering any competitions here, I do get extremely creative with some of my chops but, I enter those on another forum.

    Good to be here guys, think I'll stick around and see what this place is all about.

    I actually like those black rims on the SOlstice. (And as a rule, black rims aren't all that great on most cars.)
    Widen the front grille a bit.
