Default Not adding but subtracting

May be the wrong part of the forum to ask this, sorry if it is.

I am going to have my Inferno Red 03 painted this spring but I have a couple questions. Has anyone completely debadged their Cruiser and removed the door spears too. If you have I wouls appreciate pictures. I am not thinking of adding or changing bumpers or roll pans or anything like that, I am just wondering what it would look like completely (including front and rear wings) de badged.

This looks like an assignment for Photoshop!

I've seen a few debadged and they looked pretty nice, but it seems that it only works if you also paint the door handles. For some reason the car doesn't seem to 'flow' with the chrome breaking up the look.

I've only seen one PT with the door spears removed, and in my lowly opinion it was ugly as h*ll. Personally, I'd not take them off, makes it look like a large grocery cart.

Now with those ground effects, I must say that removing the spears really works! Without the ground effects/body kit, it turns the PT somewhat Plain Jane imo.

A lot of my PT includes subtracting.



Actually after this next round of modifications I will be going through... I will have only 6 windows on the car and two doors. Amongst the modifications I will have even less lines on my car.
