yes.

body colour bumpers.

alloys

maybe lower it a tat as they sit quite high.

been looking for different lights but cannot find any., might just tint mine.

also gonna upgrade the bulbs as not amazing.

She still not a Kei as engine too big :(

It's fun to drive and even as an automatic has loads of bottom end grunt.
but only upto about 40 then it not so good.

going in for MOT early next week lets hope it not too bad.
but considering what was paid for it..... let's see.

It's close enough to a Kei in my books! Since it was available in Japan with a 660cc engine ;)

Today fitted some new 4" speakers as the drivers one had blown.

Thinking of drilling door to take 6" speakers.

love this car but has no power steering and being disabled is not that easy to park.

my way to help is slightly over inflate front tyres...

Now front drivers brakes make a grinding sound when turning right....
will investigate tomorrow.

just to be safe have ordered new pads and retaining springs, but not be here for few days.

Also want smooth the roof and ditch the groove for roof bars which it will never have.

Also thinking of smoothing sides and loosing ridge on doors.
Looks good on some online i have seen.

And replace grill with mesh not the plastic one i have.

Possible jdm square front plate as well.
