    Default C4*modified body *sketch*

    Okay, dont ask me why? I was just bored on my off day.
    It is raining
    I returned from the dentist
    I dont feel like doing anything.
    Dont wanna do any real paintings.
    so I was just sketching around. just some ideas.
    1-a slanted nose * hopefully if it improves the drag coeffiecent, then it would be a good idea.
    2.wind deflectors around side view housings.
    3-hood would have a slanted cowl rise***however the cowl must have the original hood design**
    4-rear spoiler * 3" long from base of rear *tilted at315 deg angle
    5-lower moulding w/ expanded opening w/ screen
    6-rear Callaway Bumper

    Can you do a convertible with flares and 11inch rims on an angle shot similar to the first drawing. With the flares being like the old c3 type thats molded in higher up on the quarter panel?

    ??? 11 inch rims? Sorry I dont mean to be offensive.. but... why 11"?
    Corvettes have the great 16,17 inch rims on the c4s.
    and the design is pretty unique anyways.
    without even doing a sketch, I dont think the 11s would look good.
    I would advise that for a convertible. add (2) U shaped mini roll bars in rear and upholster them to match your cars interior.

    I should have been more specific, I meant 17x11 wide. The hoops look great. I wish I could come up with some real ones for mine. Thanks
