Great. Thanks for that. I reckon I could modify a steel bumper to look like that pretty easily. Just need to find a non chromed one as a base. Happy new year when it comes.

I wasn't happy with the look so I 'borrowed' the wheels from the Porsche to go lower, more German Look. Added the bonnet strap too. Much better!

The deep dish rims look way better. Love it. Sure it's not a clone of the Porsche but it looks cool in its own way.

I reckon there is scope for similar exercises for beetlising other cars as well. The Jps (john player special) look (black with gold stripes), that lotus f1 cars came in for example. However some other photoshop expert should take their turn for that one, as you've done us proud with this one.

Have you seen this doing the rounds of Faceache (and here in Chat):



A bit too custom for my tastes but shows the JPS colours on a bug (ish) shape.

Aye, that's the idea. I agree far too much custom for my taste too.
Looks like they made a jps capri too
