looking good!

are you going to black up the intakes and detail bits? makes a ton of difference to my eye. works in gloss and matte black.

I'm intrigued by your side window idea...

what white is it? FOrd Diamond white Version 1,2 or 3, or something else?

if you were wanting a front bib, B&Q does a natty little lawn/gravel edge roll for about 15. its basically a P profile, with the bead about 12mm, and the long bit about 10cm. looks good as it lowers the car quite a lot. works well esp if you are going to black up the bits n bobs. a roll is enough for 2 cars.

Hi
I like the sound of that, i will have to take a look.
The colour is Ford Frozen white,
I have some black mesh for all of the intakes, even wrapping the intercooler in mesh, Can't do the whole top intake as the clam needs to pivot to the roof.
the rear of the doors are going to be black.

[IMG]http://[/IMG]had a couple of hours on the car today,managed to get a start on sorting the door issue out.
cut the door frame around the window and had a play about
[IMG]http://[/IMG]

It only needed to be a small cut as 2mm should be plenty at this stage
Also cut to the other side
[IMG]http://[/IMG]

Even managed to put the mirror back on.

This part is going to be sculptured so its a nice smooth curve when the door is open
[IMG]http://[/IMG]

once it's all blended in it should look pretty good
Door now opens fine

Any chance I could ask a favour? If you take off the top of the door frame again, would mind taking a photo of where the MR2 roof meets rs200 roof on the driver's side?

Love the idea, what will you do with the top corner where you can see the hardtop? Fill it?

Yes, the frame will all be filled and blended into the roof to give nice even lines.
I will get some pics to you later when i am doing the other door.

Since it was a nice dry day yesterday, i though i would get the car out of the garage and start soldering some of the wires in.
Managed to get the side indicators done, and also got the fog lamps wired up.
Still not sure on the high beam yet, so will leave it until i make a final decision.
called it a day as it was very cold.

Fitted the mudflaps, arch liners and mesh to the rear clam.

Having used the original ones then extended them out with these
ebay item number 112690567538
They are a great starting point, cut the curve lip off each side and then cut in half down the length.
i managed it with a stanley knife
