Sneak Peak : Equinox new nose cone
 
Got some sneak peak of the buck for the new equinox Nosecone

You asked and Dave has created it.

Took these today :






UPDATED PICTURE see others later in thread


Plus a picture of the bodywork fitted to a customers car (old nose cone)




Dave hopes that people will like the new nose and welcomes feedback.

You have to be impressed with the way dave responded to that nosecone request. When you think we have been waiting years to see the vindaloo body products. Anyway you asked for a critical eye to be cast over it and here it is,in my opinion which is humble and worthless:p i think the whole thing is brilliant till it gets down to the oil cooler aperture. I think it needs more of a radius on the two bottom corners and slightly reducing the width of the cooler hole and again more of a radius in the aperture to stop it looking letter box like.

I think it looks good -a vast improvement.
However I think the opportunity may have been missed to design something a bit different eg flowing the two shapes into each other :eek:

Ok so if it flowed into eachother and the radius at the bottom corners changed it would be spot on

It looks nice but it would be better if the sides were wider and covering more the wishbones when you look at it at the front.

yep:) Carefull how you tell him cos you might end up wearing it for a hat.

It's not a very good picture tbh. They do cover the wishbone mounts well. The picture makes it look narrower than it is.

I think helpful criticism is likely to result in a product that everyone wants.

It might also pay for the aperture to be set back a bit more as well because when the blank is cut out there wont be enough of a lip to clean up the edge and fit an edging strip. just thoughts.

Looks good. I like the way the rear arches on the customers car fits the wheels nicely.

whos car is it?
