    Regal GS Coupe

    A quick chop and color change from the Regal GS sedan.

    Any suggestions or requests for this one?

    The door is already longer than the sedan by a few inches, but I'll give it a shot.

    it looks stubby - did you take length out of the overall car?

    Yep, it has a shorter wheelbase and a lower roof

    It looks like a 2 door CC, and that's a good thing. The roofline fits well on the car. It could have a bit more of a dramatic C pillar though. I just don't like the pinkish color. You might have to darken it.

    I agree with the others that the red needs to be a little darker, and that the C-pillar could use to be a little more interesting, but overall, it is a beauty. I sure hope that something like this actually comes to market!

    Thanks for the kind words guys. I wish the base car were something other than white. It's harder to add color than to change color, so anytime you go dark it looks more like a digital rendering than an actual car. My Aveo RS 3-door hatch is almost done, that thing was a breeze to color change.

    That is nice!

    However, I don't think the colour change was necessary. White is the most difficult colour to change, as it always comes out looking flat. It appears that's the case here.

    But looking past the nasty colour, it looks really good. Certainly better than the bland duo, the BMW 3 & Audi A5, it would compete against.

    What do you mean? Should the whole greenhouse be lower? Any examples?
