Any bored Photoshop'ers out there?

Hey Everyone,

I am contemplating roof raise options (12") and am considering raising from the second bow/hoop from the front all of the way to the back cap. Then transitioning from the front cap to the raised portion. Make it (kind of) resemble the front of an Eagle coach.

I suck at Photoshop. Anyone out there inclined to fire up Photoshop and show me what it may look like?

Any thoughts or suggestions regarding this idea?

Thanks.

S.

Take a look at ECCB's Roll Your Own thread.

He raised his 10" in roughly the same way you are describing. His was an AmTran, but they all look the same

That is where I got my inspiration.

What I would like to see is what it would look like if I raised from the second bow/hoop from the front all of the way to the back cap. Then transitioning from the front cap to the raised portion. Make it (kind of) resemble the front of an Eagle coach.

Thanks.

I couldn't find a build thread for that bus, but I'm interested in how they finished it inside. I imagine it's just a flat wall in the raised section inside.
