    Please read the repo page for information. This mod used to be called the sunbird but after realizing that Pontiac already used that name I changed it.

    Suggestions i've got:
    The badging doesn't quite seem right in the lighting on the back, but the back and front do look really good :)
    The configurations could use a bit more - maybe base them on the same system as the Wendover (if you want help with that...)
    The steering wheel would probably look better with a completely different design, like a tri-spoke on old cadillacs (but IDK what your skill level is to do this, and rebadging the wheel and dashboard/glovebox would be fine as well)
    The dash lights don't work, but you know that :)

    Other than that this mod is really good and honestly looks better than the stock moonhawk : D - I really like the outdoor tach, and it does look great overall. Honestly rebadging some low-end legran and moonhawk wheels would look a bit better as the ones now look out of place.

    I can't complain too much, it's better than I could do and honestly really really good. I love facelift mods such as these and this one will definitely be staying on my computer until it's outdated :)

    here's some suggestions
    put a kick lever next to the clutch for the high beams
    rebadge the interior
    maybe a sort of continental for a luxury model?

    Yes it does still need to be updated.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I appreciate them. The interior will be rebranded for sure once I can figure out how, and I’ll do some of the other suggestions too.

    what exactly are you thinking for this… front/rear end? Whole thing? I’m not at the skill level to make a custom model, or I would have done it already. I might try changing up the front and rear end a bit more but the moonhawk body will have to do. Maybe a convertible though.

    Absolutely!
    I just wanted to put the things that I personally had noticed, that way, if there was something additional that I saw that he didn't, maybe it would be valuable to him : )

    Can’t believe Pontiac stole my car name. I’ll look into changing it I guess. Thanks for the heads up

    Anyone got any name suggestions? I can’t really think of any.

    heres some feedback, i would suggest getting help for the jbeam and stuff since this need a lot of work still
    upload_2021-9-7_19-18-11.png
    I would also suggest to add jbeam for the tachometer, and also removing it on the Automatic configs to make it a bit more refreshing so to speak
    Apart from that its a great idea and I'd love to see this get better

    oh and the sunbird lettering is floating but youre fixing that anyway

    This is such a good idea! It's so great to see an interpretation of lore badge engineering.
    Here are my suggestions for the mod: (this may be overkill, so please don't misconstrue my criticism as disliking it)

    SunbirdEdit.jpg SunbirdEdit1.jpg

    For the record, the following suggestions are just that. I believe that this mod is great with or without the integration of these suggestions:

    1. the hood-mounted tach is pretty neat, but it does seem a bit sporty for Soliad (a luxury subsidiary to Bruckell). By no means do I suggest scrapping it, I'd keep it for a sport variant.
    2. I like how you changed the fascia as it does make it feel like a rebadged Moonhawk, but one thing that could make it more true to Soliad in the '70s is by making some kind of a Cadillac/Rolls Royce-inspired grille.
    3. As you may note, I changed the rear windows' shape. I've taken my inspiration from the '80s Buick Regals and '80s Oldsmobile regency coupes.
