while installing the Z-Top back on...a few impressions of my upcoming ULTRA MODERN mirror design

ooops...wrong picture


okay, okay...but mirror design was actually 17 years ago THE BIG thing for high end Hifi components. So it is therefor a proper design for a Y2k Boxster
hmm...looking at it, i might want to create a full mirror design cover for the lower console, to...
jeeez...always new ideas popping up. Terrible.

for the long time being "out of order" (still) ...another design i have been playing around with, too many martini or 3 stripe designs out there, so I made a slightly different approach.

I kinda like the 356ish horns... oh, and a virtual FM7 design test

The white stripe and red lettering on the side throws off the concept and goes against the gray/sand color

I agree, in fact I didn't even notice it when I looked since it is in the shadows. I think losing that but keeping the hood stripe.

thank you for your comments, guys.
Yeah, I took the side stripes not really into consideration yet. But it is always the overall impression which counts.
Like my wife says...color matching is most important...all of them.
You guys said, that "white-ish" color is not matching and you are right.
so a more adapted design...trying a different side liner color in the middle segment
...and omg...the sand color lightens up...so even that needs to be played with to get the perfect "sand color impression"
... it still needs a few more tweaks to figure out the perfect harmony
Btw...Porsche offers palladiummetallic (aka sand / beige) for their SUVs atm, perfect for an "off roader", but why not on a roadster

not sure, if it is original...matt would be fine, as my grey stripes are matt as well

pixie dust...difficult to properly simulate the correct beige with photoshop as the brightness in each photo is different, in darker surroundings a golden stripe almost looks better on grey,
as it blends in perfectly.

old photo photoshopped, just for the grin and giggles...the "plan" for the rear... form follows looks...won't be easy to simulate the grill,
but I did it once, should work for the hatch as well. This time less brightness for the stripes...turns almost into a golden color.

Porsche emblems missing still as well as aluminum side window trims (still need to figure out how to...lol)
Can't wait to see the WTH faces on the road
