Took a while but i think I've found the right combo.

Tribute will have a roofless version out in no time im sure if the demand is high enough, he certainly did it with the mx250.

Looks great - only issue could be with the grille as I suspect AM won't be too pleased?

Must say it looks fantastic. Reminds me a bit of the Evanta AM recreation.

As for the grill, if AM did say something you could use the new Ford Fiesta or Mondeo grill, or even a custom Nissan 350 (AM style grill) by DamD not to mention others.

Could it be worth using the Fiesta Grille to make the mould? Looks as though it could do the job well, avoid any wrangle with AM? and make for a nice finish and easy-fit grille ---- Job done! Like the way things are going - I admire how quickly and artistically you can do these builds.

Cross that bridge when you come to it i say, the grille looks too good to be worrying about what might happen if someone might say something.

If this looks close enough when its finished, i'd like to fit one over the top of a vitesse, looking good thus far though.
