    MKT chop(s)

    [/

    for MaxLegroom & Emdee in the main MKT thread and using suggestion-requests from here & elsewhere
    MKT-sedan
    took a bit out of the body's height
    moved & blended the roof
    lengthened the trunk
    & added a bit of rear bumper
    oh!, and shortened the Star-Spear on the flank just a touch...
    doorhandles? we don't need no stinking doorhandles - they're touch-sense & motorized!

    If anyone wants to use this chop as the basis for another one, PLEASE DO!
    also
    if anyone wants to add their chop to this thread, DITTO! :)

    I personally think that looks much better than the real vehicle.

    Looks awesome!

    That's great, and very much what I had in mind. It is very much something I could imagine myself driving.

    Re: MKT chop(s)

    thanks, guys!

    I was hoping to do more chops - esp. my idea for a distinct Limousine model,
    but in preparation for that I had to try to make the MKT black (duh),
    but that's hard to do with my curent software & skill-level,
    so here's what I came up with - just don't know if it'll work as a basis for what I want to do.

    maybe once we get RealWorld pix of a black MKT or >>>TuexedoBlack<<< :)

    I love the MKT to death, but the only parts I like is from the front to the radius of the second wheel. From there on, I don't care for the side profile after the radius of the second wheel, but the back of the MKT is beautiful. I love your chop, but something is still irregular in the back end to me, I think it's the rear window.

    for the chop, I agree completely about the window.
    was thinking of giving it more slant but then I'd easily get carried-away (*luv* fastbacks)
    for the real concept, I prefer to see it for real < pout > (they prolley won't bring it to LA rant rant rant)

    from a few pix, there seems (to me) to be some rather subtle tho crucial sculpting around the rear w-arch and under the "chamfer"-line
    ...hope I'm not imagining it

    Re: MKT chop(s)

    *bump*

    found myself posting these chops elsewhere today
    due to all the "GlobalRwd Is Dead" hub-bub
    &
    tho I don't believe that for a minute...
    ...maybe a temporarily multi-platform approach is developing
    in which case
    an E386 (MKS's big brother) will FINALLY get built

    Re: MKT chop(s)

    hey 2b2, our chops are very similar! i think i posted these somewhere else, but you asked for some here, so here you go!

    i called mine the MKL for Long wheelbase sedan, or the new Town Car.




    i also made an even longer wheelbase version:



    i also chopped it into a '60s type station wagon, the MKW:
