This is to show the restying done on vehicles which hold the most interest to me.
I started by taking a photo of the truck and use an opaque projector to make a accurate drawing of the truck. I do it this way so that when it comes to making changes I have a better idea of what I'm shooting for.
I made a zerox copy of the original drawing. Then I took some white out and covered the areas I wanted to modify. I made copies of this which I carried with me to draw on when ever an idea came to me. I didn't have to draw the whole truck...
Altough this is somewhat beat up, it's the design I liked the best. Orginally there were grills on the side panels so I stuck with the grills with plans to put the directional lights I the front of the grills. I also split the front grill opening ...
Just the way I found it
Along the way 4
The initial metal shaping was started by an apartment I lived in. Top of hood was shaped around a pole. The white cardboard is taped on to fender to give me a better idea where I was going with the design.
Along te way 5
This is a better view of the hood grills which are also shaped from flat metal.
Along the way 6
This shows the front of grills being separate which will be directional-parking lights
Along the way 7
Hood is shown open. A closer look at pivot point shows one of the two links to aid the opening
