    Progress: Operation Porsche Carrera GT Coupe

    I have two ideas for the CGT, this is one of them.

    I will mold in the Modena roof section, the CGT engine cover will be left off so the engine can be viewed through the rear window.

    Still lots to do to make it look natural.

    I will reshape the rear of the side window to mimic the door cove.

    thats an excellent idea youll get more aerodynamics and faster speed but itll weigh more
    There is 3 people on a boat with loads of children running around it, the 3 people are: 1. Bob geldof, 2. Ozzy Osbourne, and 3. Micheal jackson, they're sailing out for the G8 live aid, they've hit a rock and they're sinking, bob says: "save the children!" ozzy says: "Fuc the children!"

    Micheal says "have we got time?"

    This is totally what they should've done in the first place. It looks a lot more like a Porsche now, but a meaner Porsche. Nice work. Someone do a chop of this.

    Got a coat of primer on so I can see my progress better.

    Going to tighten up those panel lines at the back of the hatch and close the B pillar toward the door panel line.

    Some have suggested that a taller roof would look better but to me it would just look like a glorified 911 instead of a supercar. Also suggestions included cutting the hatch panel line the same width as the hatch through the spoiler but I think the current lines add character to the rear of the car....and once it is painted and polished It'll look fine.

    I will smooth the vents beside the rear window because they look too 360 Modena and the roof could use some more thickness in that area.

    I will prolly use the stock wheels, just wanted to see the Enzo wheels on it since they are the only other wheels that will fit this car.

    Thanks to everyone for your comments and encouragement.

    All major body work is done and getting close to the painting stage.

    The most important aspect of the work was to get a side window shape that works with those huge door coves... it wasn't easy to arrive at a window shape that looks good at all angles.

    I filled in the vents on either side of the rear window and that was the last hint that it is a Modena roof exept for the shape of the rear window which happens to work with this car.

    Moving the B pillars forward to the rear door panel line helped the look of the rear window.

    I think the stock wheels look great on it.

    That's pretty impressive stuff!
    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.
