    Standardized Car Design

    From here I have digitally designed three "shells" that work with the chassis design. They are all civilian cars, as service vehicles are already taken care of. Hence my pitch here is twofold: One - the designs below to be either implemented into existing Lego city kits to increase their complexity and the enjoyment factor, and Two - to install the chassis piece and "bull-bar" piece into Lego Digital Designer, such that Lego enthusiasts can design their own custom cars from home and order them.
