    Not a GM product...

    But seriously guys.... please tell me that you can see the differences between the original and my chop...

    I am thinking of leaving my current site because nobody there appreciates or even understands the subtle changes that make a clean chop...

    Over there, if you have crappy carbon fiber look on the hood and badly cut and pasted wheels, you are a god...I am seriously close to relinquishing my moderator status over there...

    Original: Nissan's pathetic Se-R Sentra



    How very uninspiring if you ask me...

    Now, my chop:



    Much better, in my opinion... way more sporty...I'd actually want to buy it if it were a real factory option car, especially if it came with a turbo or supercharger.

    Here is an animated file...please tell me you can notice the differences...please...lol

    You should use that animated thing on all your chops.

    I totally understand what you're saying. I think the chop looks great. I'd rather see a believable chop over something crazy any day. Keep it up.

    Very nice and clean! It looks production ready. GMI members would definitely appreciate work of that caliber, I know I would!

    Hope to see some more of your chops in the future!

    I don't understand what's so intriguing about low riders. It's almost as tacky as huge rear spoilers. I would be afraid to go over a speed bump with it.

    The idea is to have a sports car with a "sport" suspension.... meaning, fun to drive...with a low center of gravity and a stiff suspension.

    There is no fun taking a lifted car...(stock height)... with soft suspension and body roll to the local SCCA track day or autocross event.

    If you ever raced, as a freelancer or as a professional on a road course like I have, trust me, lower is better.

    I like it. It looks much better than the origional.
    I'd love to see a similar makeover with the Aura.

    Very good, But I would agree w/Martino...that back window looks like prison cell bars. Great job otherwise. How long does this kind of work take?

    Great chop, you have some skills there, but the car? Kind of a GTO without an engine to me. No appeal whatsoever. Kind of like the new Camaro.

    You guys are right about the back window...I'll try to fix that tonight.

    This chop has about 4 hours in it, some chops just sort of flow better than others for me timewise. This was one that went smoothly.

    Thanks a lot for the comments everyone... I was seriously pulling my hair out because the other site people were saying that they couldn't see what I had done to it...

    And the car...well, the beginning picture was absolute crap in my opinion...but, it is for this weeks challenge so I didn't pick it.
