Ryan's 00 Maxima for Calendar Submission

Friend of mine asked me to shoot his car because he wants it to be in the 2009 NYC Maximas Calendar. This is just one of many shots I have and is not done being edited yet, but hopefully at least one of my shots gets in there.

The car is undergoing changes this winter which include getting rid of the 2-tone, a more subtle front lip, and some other minor tweaks.

I like that front lip. The 2-tone would look better if it went all the way around. The car in general would look better if it didn't have the damn plate bracket on the front too. Other than that, nice car.

Agreed on the front plate bracket, but he said they painted around it..take it off and theres no 2-tone under it

The car will be all black with a new lip next season, I don't like the look now but I guess it's a matter of taste.

Talk about a lazy paint shop. Is the bottom color blue or silver? In the pics it looks like a very light blue.

Its light blue, and yes, it is lazy but not the worst I've seen. Also if you look at picture 5 under the passanger's headlight, the masking line for the 2-tone is actually crooked. This is the worst I've seen

Yea, but it was hard to clone because of all of the reflection from everything else. I usually try to avoid it. Not to be cocky but looking at the other pictures people are submitting, I doubt they will be picky about reflections, and its not really anything professional, just a small club in NY

WTF!!! Whoever did that should be shot!


This is why I do everything myself. If something isn't done right, I only have myself to blame.
