Default Another MX5 body transformation

Here we have another new transformation on the Mazda MX5.
This time its from Japan and its called the Mitsuoka Rock Star and it´s a Corvette Stingray C2 style replica and it doesn´t look too bad.

I like the door handles, I want to do that to my NB, if I can persuade my welder friend to help fill in the holes Anyone else done that style too? Any tips? I'm thinking pretty much any VAG group car should be able to donate the handles and keyhole.

Didnt the Stingray have the pop-up headlights, like the NA does? Surely an NA would be the best car to use, to keep the pop-up lights. Anyone know why they wouldnt try to keep them?

Overall a really good job. The front bumper/ grill looks like it has scooped up a load of garbage though. Maybe the pop ups make sense, though going the mx5 route makes sense. Probably a bit pf sensible redesign could fix it.

I really like it.. although front bumper does need a bit of ‘less is more’

Now a Z4 converted into a Corvette lookie likey would be an interesting project.
