    I am not familiar with the difference between photo shop and ms paint. I think they all look great

    Congrats! & thanx, Prov. You deserve the votes & you certainly got my kudos (#1). Rex, yer right up there with a kool 2-box hatch & unique bispoilers.

    I'm trying not to add too much donor parts (known for pushing too much the spirit of the contest) except for better wheel/tire combination.
    I pulled the image like taffy and into a new perpspective & proportions, that it changed the car into a midsize!
    Could be the new rwd Monte Carlo/Grand Prix/Century/Chevelle siblings!

    Welcome back Rex and thanks everyone.

    what i meant was that I am ofter to be carless with photoshop - and even when I cared, I often did not understand how to make it all look real. Because I worked this chop manually in MS Paint, I realized what goes into making the chop realistic and undetectable

    (all the changes I made were somewhat detailed - RWD front overhand, cutlines, taillights, spoiler, antenna, lowerred, etc ... big changes like changing the color of the car or the proportions cannot be done in MS Paint, but I believe it was a lesson learned, that will carry me when doing all these advanced things in PS)

    Look at the attached picture - it is a result of more playing around after I sent in the chop for the compatition. In PS I would have tried bezel or something to make the chop of the rear windown, and would have never achieved the results as I did with the MS Paint, where I went pixel by pixel and made sure it looked right. I know the car looks off with that window - I saw that - but the window looks real - and it was all created - not pasted from some other picture.

    I know - I am trying to make a virtue out of a vice - my PS computer is not online, and the whole week I could not find any of my USB keys to transfer the picture there and the result back to my laptop - so I was stuck with MS Paint - but I realized how much I could do with enough attention to detail.

    Thanks everyone who voted for me ...

    it was not a bad job for being all done in MS Paint ...

    I think it also made me a better "chopper" - having to do all the work manually - not tools and tricks.
