Whilst I can appreciate the amount of effort and attention to detail you've gone to, whenever I see the car (and I saw it in the flesh at Stoneliegh) I just can't help but notice the rear 3/4 aspect is all out of proportion.

The boot area is too long as the Supra roof line & rear glass angle makes it merge with the main body too soon. On a real GT, these angles are much shallower, and ends up with a much more sweeping line and shorter deck area.

Anyway - From the front, pretty convincing. From the back, not so much... Sorry.

GreatOldOne - I can see exactly what you mean but it is important to go back to Chris's first post and the section that reads -

'' I am part way through a body conversion using Bentley Continental GT panels on a Toyota Supra MkIV twin turbo. Its not an exact replica as it uses the Supra roof/glass and doors (with the addition of a swage line) ''

Chris is the first to agree the wheelbase and track are different as well , but as a styling exercise or example of a coachbuilt or concept style Bentley , it works quite well....

You have done very well , i like the concept and the fact you have had the brain wave of making a kit to bond onto a toyota supra. It does look convincing, aspecially from the front. You will allways get the forum slaging, but maybe if they thought before they type, and just realise that its just a take on a bentley and not a copy , and a good job well done mate
