I'd swap the wheels to match with the other police vehicles, maybe remove the bumper rivets, and put the interior back to the original black to match all the other cars. Instead of being that one odd out. The red white blue light bar was a lot better. This one just rips the Aerodynic too hard. Add some spotlights and the two antennas back, too. If I could nitpick one more, take away the c-pillar badges. It just screams Caprice too loud.

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll keep those things in mind.
Adding spotlights and the old lightbar again will maybe help making it look less like the real LAPD Impalas and a bit more fictional, which is something I do would like.
Will probably keep the wheels and the rest of the base model stuff since I want it to stay true to the original Declasse Merit Classic by G.C.T for now,.
Maybe I will edit the base model in the future to look slightly less like a copy of the Impala

That's what I'm implying on. All I see is Carface's Caprice. Maybe a swap of wheels, remove some small detail, and some fine tuning can fix that. Definitely the SA style light bar. I assume you copied and flipped the glass 180 and welded? Very effective. I like that. I definitely recommend stock wheels, though. They're too bulky and stick out from the traffic. Especially the Caprice hubcaps. He didn't change those a bit.

The lightbar in the picture is still red, white, and blue. I also assume the car is still work in progress, hence no antennae or spotlights.

How about you make your own lore-friendly Caprice Classic? Or better yet - stick to real vehicles without calling out every single non-lore-friendly edit on a vehicle according to your vision?

I commented on two of his pictures, giving suggestion and feedback on a public gallery post according to what it seems like he's trying to achieve.

Maybe let me do whatever I want.

I'm actually doing this at the moment, already adapted new mirrors that look like the lvpd car ones, made some changes to the bumpers (which now both have a black line around them, just like in SA) and some other misc. stuff
