Fixing things & lowpoly

I met with my supervisor and he pointed out a few things to change in my model so over the past few days I've been fixing any errors and improving the topology. I decided to change the design of my front wheel arches and the front spoiler. Some of my friends said they could be improved and I did say earlier that I was thinking of changing the front spoiler to a more aggressive looking one. Here are my new front arches and spoiler.

I also started making the lowpoly. I did this by just duplicating the highpoly model, deleting the turbosmooth modifier and then just removed loads of edgeloops. I got the model own to 57,000 tris which should be completely fine. I will just have to see how rfactor runs when the models ingame. If it needs more optimization I could easily go back and delete some more loops.

And here's the high and low poly next to each other. High on the left and Low on the right.

For the seats I decided to make some modern bucket seats as the stock seats differ greatly from my reference and It will suit the street racer look I'm going for. The seats I decided to make are these...
Bride Lowmax, they are a very popular Japanese brand so I think they are ideal for this car.

This is quite a complex shape to model but I've made a bucket seat before so Im sure I can get it looking right. I started off modelling the base first which will be a separate object to the back and front. Here's the model I made, Its quite blocky but I used edge loops so it smooth out well with turbosmooth applied.


I made the exhaust today, I decided to go with a twin tip design. I had to cut a hole where the exhaust comes out but ti do this I had to detach the rear end and mirror it over so that will be once piece. I also made some windscreen wipers. I may have to add some extra detail to these as they are a bit too simple at the moment.
