    Default OK, Got another crazy idea POLL

    I was looking at the back of my car recently... and was considering the rear roof spoiler... but, after a bit of thought, I abandoned the idea for various reasons...

    Then I had a thought..... what if I created some 'Evo Style' bumps along the roof strip at the top of the hatchback.. Similar to an evo shark fin, but a 'bump' rather than a fin... Similar to the 'venturi' tunnels the VXR has on the rear lower bumper splitter thingy.... You would get the effect without the 'full on' shark fin....

    These bumps would be shaped and body coloured, so you would get a subtle effect....

    Be nice to see something little different. Mock it up first (maybe with some blue-tack or something) before going ahead with it.

    Well, I think they look naff on the EVO and I don't think they'd look any better on the Vec TBH - but if you can mock something up then all better!

    knock yourself out Steve.

    just my opinion but if you're going to do it then it need to looks quite obvious - subtle will make them look like big rain drops.

    i don't know how shallow a profile you are thinking about but if you're thinking about going down the jelly sweet route that you've done with your badges i'd say don't bother.

    just my opinion

    Harry, you dont sound too convinced

    If it looks **** then it wont stay on my car... but you never know, it may look OK or at least lead onto something better

    Yes I will be going down the Jelly Sweet route... and I wont make them look like big 'Pear Drops' honest

    Thanks for your vote guys !!

    Hi D,

    Yeah, I'm not 100% convinced either, but wanted to 'sport' up the rear without going too chav or over the top.... and to be a little bit different. The 'Jelly Sweet' effect could look OK, as it would be colour coded and give the same effect as the 'venturi' tunnels on the VXR rear bumper !!... and those look OK dont they ?!

    If it makes you happy and you like it then go for it, after all it's all about indivuallity and personal taste. Not for me though. Hey love the drawing though especially the wiper!
