I noticed the left was rounded while right had a more traditional shape but thought it was an illusion with the light. I hope they sort it out soon

I have to say that of all the design mods I have seen, the Astonmazda is in my mind the best I have seen to date.
1993 1.6 Eunos Roadster (gone)
1998 UK Mk 2 1.6 (gone)
2003 1.8 SVT Sport (Why did I sell it!!!!)
1991 1.6 Eunos Roadster with a bit of bling.

Life is a journey, best travelled topless in an MX5!!

Personally I am not a lover of stick on plates, I would rather have one on brackets or side mounts so they can be removed at shows.

As I'm sure you know, we love such dedication and attention to detail. That colour, chiltern green by any chance? Would love to see that car once its done.

It is chiltern green. An Aston colour. I'm based in Stockport pal but do go to Wigan most Friday nights (see the wife's folks) should be getting it back this weekend. Once I've picked it up I'll let ya know.
