It looks awesome. It just needs some sort of detail on the back by the tail lights... raised or recessed or something...

Magnificent, but please loose the flat back. flatt paint was so over before it started. There isn't a single car (car not truck) made int he last 60 years that looks better flat than gloss.

I think it looks sweet in flat black.

I am planning on doing the Yugo in flat black...

Agreed. This car is obviously a work in progress, so why spend hundreds of hours making sure the metal is perfect so it'll look good glossy? Shoot it flat black, look at it for a season, cut the roof off...

I can see a few details I'd like to tweak - but not many. The car is definitely evolving for the better, too. And it gets USED!

This just reminds me that I have little time and even less money to take on great projects as such

It looks like a love child between a 240 and a Ferrari.

(That is a very good thing!)

Some constructive critism.... ....It looks like it sits too low. Maybe raise it up .5" to .75"?

That thing is sweet!
