    Yeah, the hood is white so it's as simple as making a new layer set to multiply and then coloring that layer where the hood is. I got the color code for Ford MK 'Twlight Blue' online, which is why it matches so well, except of course the areas I missed.

    Hah, I knew it!

    However, get that hood painted in the color of the body and it'll look much much better

    Wow hey i completely forgot about this thread. Anyway i recently sold my trusty Volvo S40 (Sometimes when i'm alone i still cry myself to sleep for selling it) and bought this:



    It's not a Volvo but the top of the line interior and a lot of silly gadgets (who doesn't love voice control and a comparatively big screen integrated into the speedo) kinda make up for it.

    Have to say, it looks far better than Stock Hood + Bra. I am liking it. <3

    Sorry to disappoint you but i'm not planning to modify it on the outside beyond new alloys maybe. It's supposed to make me look like serious business and not like a 20-year old with too much cash in his hands

    I'll probably buy this babe tomorrow. The car itself has always been in a heated garage and has never been out at winter. As my father works at Mercedes Benz, I can get cheap parts, even for old Benz cars like this! I'm excited.






    Now thinking of it, I'm actually very excited. If it happens to be in good mechanical condition, then I'll make sure to take some new pictures of it!

    Do any other companies do that?
    I remember reading about Mercedes making like ANY part you need for any vehicle they ever made for replacement.

    Yeah, Mercedes does (to an extend). I think I've heard of BMW doing it too, but I read that like years ago so I'm not too sure. Let me look that up for you.

    I never really understood why people dislike CitroŽns so much. The only argument I've ever heard against them is "they're bad cars"

    How is this bad and/or ugly..? I really don't understand. I've driven a DS3 Racing and that damn thing, in white and black is purrty, nimble and responsive as fuck.

    That's kind of a racing car. It's not much stock CitroŽn left in that anywhere.

    Any of these pics come out good? They're all HDR, but my eyes are pretty weird, so I have a hard time adjusting them right



    It's my dad's truck. 2000 F250, 7.3l PowerStroke, 6-speed manual.
    The pics make it look like the back sits higher than the front, but the road isn't level so the rear is flexing slightly. It actually sits flat.

    The original argument was that Citroens were bad cars, no one said anything specific regarding commercial or racing.. :c Also, as I said, the DS3 Racing is an impressively hot hatchback.

    Picked up a set of 330ci sport rims off of Craigslist for $150, staggered setup. 17x7.5 f, 17x8.5 r. The rear's tires were toast, but the front are totally brand new! I had the front tires swapped to the rear for a bit of stretch and had some old tires I had kicking around mounted to the front. I don't think the dude knew how much they were worth. Saved me $400 on new tires. :)



    Should I dip them black? Or just leave them be. Input is appreciated. :)
