Those pics I've uploaded so far are out of date now. I'll add to the thread with more details (including engine specs) and pics later tonight.
I can't remember how much I paid for the wing mirrors of the top of my head, but they came from here:
They are great quality, and are super light. I would like to get some for my daily car - when I buy it that is (still looking for the right one). Some of you might be intererested in that car too, but I'll keep quiet until I actually get one.

thanx. Will dig mag out and scan it in near future... have seen it recently, its funny it says something in bold writing like manufacturers getting it right: Mazda: YES! Nissan: NO!
Probably a good one to blow up for the shed wall...

My Longchamps are 4x114.3, and I had the stud pattern changed front and rear to suit my wheels specifically. I thought about putting Series 3 front struts and rear end in, but the +38/40 Series 3 offset meant that the wheels would stick out even further.

You should meet Uncle Jake and Sheepers - they are the guys that first come to mind when I see the quality of your work..
Hard Out mang -- Haaaaaard Out!!
BTW when you do meet them - a word of advice - stay off Sheepers lawn, he don't like strangers snacking on his lawn and leaving crumbs..

My crappy A4 scanner wont scan articles properly, sections the article off as it has a white background and thinks I'm only scanning a small portion of page... anyway heres cover, article is B&W, PM me addy and will photocopy for you at earliest convenience, worth a read. Also has pics of a prototype S1 with bugeye lamps and trick door handles...
Hey, thanks for the effort. I remember seeing that prototype with bugeye lamps on the internets years ago, but I've never been able to find it again. I'll PM you now.
