LOL! <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">


Yeah...I was really bored last night and trying to learn Photoshop 6 better for work....and yeah the tires were giving me some problems trying to get it right. I figured it be the fastest and easiest way to see how good...or in this case bad <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> I did.

I was messing around in the back yard last night with my truck...I just didn't take any pics of it.

Dude I hope you don't PhotoChop for a living... that front fender, it still looks chopped... <IMG SRC="smilies/clown.gif" border="0">

Also what's the story with your front shocks? Are they mounted upside down, or are they supposed to be like that for some reason <IMG SRC="smilies/question.gif" border="0">

Nice rig though...

2hightoy-Try making a selection around the tires, and feather the selection. That will make them look so they aren't cut-out! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Just a little tip, as long as you are learning PS6!

The front fender looks chopped??? WTF? I never touched that...atleast with the computer <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> And the shocks are upside down? I know..there was a reason for that but I forget why I did that originally but they work and don't leak so....why change 'em?

Made it myself <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> Just call it constructive learning since I didn't know how to weld before I bought the truck.

Thanx dude...I didn't see that option before. That does make the transfer a lot cleaner.

Well the truck does cross up more than my photochoped photo shows it does. I had it really x-up at Jurgen's and I thought I was going to tear the suspension off from how much stress there was from getting it so twisted. But the front springs are just 4" wrangler's that are WELL broke in <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> and flex like crazy in both directions. The rears are a little different...top three springs are mazda B2000, next two are the second and third from the original toy pack, and the bottom spring (not an overload..just a regular spring) is from a chevy 5 leaf pack. The original toy rear spring was used as the buggy leaf so it has a good drop off the frame. I'm not sure why...but they get almost the same amount of negative arch as they do positive so the compression and drop are awesome! Between that and the buggy, the rear flexs pretty damn good and with the locator bars the rear end stays where its supposed to...most of the time atleast <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

I know you're not talking trash about my mudflaps.... <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">
