Very nice car! The striping does it! Also like the meshed headlights! Keep up the good work!

Thanks, but it's not quite there yet!
Is there an award for the nicest exhaust note?

Decided to colour match the centre console to the outside of the car, hopefully it will look nice when fitted, otherwise i'll be peeling it back off!

Think your back lights are spot on!

They really suit the car.

They remind me of retro Ford?

they are indeed bmw 2002 lights, skip back a few pages and you'll see we played the "guess where my lights are from" game! a few months back,

I was originally going for the cortina lights as above, but they don't have the reversing light built in like the bmw lights

Where did you get these mirrors? Can you also talk to me about how you installed those side repeaters?
