A few months ago, I’ve started to look for my next car. Then a crazy idea emerged, why not a Geeko’s car?
At that time Gilbert my mechanic [www] told me that Ford will get a new Fiesta model called Sport+ with a more powerful engine, a new look & feel. I went to the exhibition and made a short test drive. The car was cool. The exhibit model was in blue with 2 white stripes.
Blue? Green would have been cool isn’t it?
Several weeks have past (Gnome3 launch, DesktopSummit, OSC11 preparation), but the idea stayed in my mind. Good news, the model exist in white with blue stripes too.
After finding a collada model compatible with Blender and pattern for printers coming from ccvision.de (Ford_231 for reference) I started imagine how I can transform it. Playing with demo pictures gimp, blender and inkscape, my project started to look as I wanted : green it will be!
End of August the things became more serious, the old one was on good shape, the price and primes for the new one were all interesting and inside my budget, let’s order it!
Unfortunately, the delay to get the car and the design done before OSC11 was too short. At least let’s get the car nude white.
No need to say that we enjoyed the journey to Nuremberg with the new car. Okay back home I let the car for two days with the instructions to print it.
Gosh the result totally blew my mind!
We use the original Ford design for the stripes
The url is made with the same dark gray used for the bumper down part
Now who want to help me to find some events & funds to go there and show it!
Drive carefully, Have fun!
