Big_Pete. This one's for you!

Hey big pete whats up?

Just been to your new site and you dont need me to tell you how good/professional it is. Very nice.

I'm glad you put the cortina up too. Also I never knew ther were dice in the grey one and I never saw the person in the purple one either. Cool. Subtle additions.

But heres the weird thing. The person you have put in looks very much like I do. Like if I showed my mates and said look theres me, they wouldnt doubt it for a second.

Ok, now is when I politely ask you to do another ps for me....

You have already done more than enough so if you dont want to thats cool. Also if you want to do it in a few months or something thats cool too. And feel free to do a 5 minute roughie as well.

Anyway.....

I saw this;

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...513709003&rd=1

And thats really got me thinking. Ive always wanted a mk3 cortina coupe. Why not make one?

Ive tried (see attachment). But as you can see the rear is way out of proportion and the front door is too small. And in general it looks horrible.

Now I've always wanted a car that was smaller. So why not chop about a foot (or more) from the back door and push the whole rear of the car up towards the front. While leaving the front door the same size.

If that looks good leave it like that, but if the front bonnet area now looks too long can you take a bit out of that too, to get it back in proportion?

And if you can roof chop it in one of the pics too, that'd be great. If not dont worry.

I would love to actually do this one day so it would be a real great help to see it first.

Use whichever pic is easiest.

Thanks Big Pete.

Oh and if anyone else feels they are up to the task.....

Re: Big_Pete. This one's for you!

Thanks very much.

"Why not just buy a mk3 coupe from England and import it. It'd be a hell of a lot cheaper" some people might say....

Why this radical chop alteration is such an attractive option for me is that I want my cortina to be smaller (in length). This would reduce weight, thus improving handling and power to weight ratio.

But the most important thing is that I would have the ONLY one like it in the world.

Plus I genuinely think it would look better than the real mk3 coupe.

Thanks again big_pete.

Thought this pic might be better as it is in completely unmolested condition. But use which ever one you want.

Thanks
