The BX convertible ( not real but with a picture )

Post by Kingswell » Sun Oct 29, 2006 3:21 pm

Have you ever wondered what a BX convertible might look like.
I created this in photoshop ( my first time using it so bear with me ), it's what I think the convertible would look like.

I've actually seen one of these, our local scrappy makes them all look like this before they leave his yard. :lol:

Interesting work guys. But, if you're really that bored, you can always come and help me change my steering rack :lol: :wink:
Looks interesting...in my minds eye I would of had the back lower i.e. roof tucked away in boot..not that I'm complaining guys its far far better that I can do... because I do not know what photoshop is... Just a thought kingswell - you think you can give you're model a spit and polish??? :roll:

I think a 3 dr version with a longer front door would have been a nice touch.

There was a BX convertible at Utrect earlier in the year.

It had 4 doors and was red.

Hi lads. I think the same applies to my awe of your collective abilities as regards mechanical/electrical skills (let alone confidence). I've been working with Photoshop for over 11 years now and still only count myself as partially capable. It is a remarkable tool and I use it for my work 80% of the time now (I am a graphic designer/illustrator).

I need not tell you the software is neither cheap or simple. I can suggest Adobe's website for more info. But try PhotoElements for a start 8)

I think you can get obsolete editions for not much cash - I got one described as Photoshop LE (proper Adobe etc)thrown in with a hard drive some years ago - and as far as I can see its the real thing without the batch processing bits.

Mine needs some real life undenting. Quite a bit. Maybe I will polish it though since it is gonna be a while before I can afford some panel beating and spraying.

I use photoshop for fun now, anyone can use it easily. The more patient and attentive you are the better the pictures that can be made. I use an obselete version ( 5 I think ). I had got it off someone who wanted the new version.
