Im not expert in Japanese stuff, but I'm quite sure those are NSX headlights. Anybody see what I see?

Waltham cross tyre shop?
It's been at Cars on the Common a couple of times over the last few years. Kudos for being different from every other cheque-book build.

I think so, the it other similar light I could think of was Fiat Coupe with the black part painted chrome. As it's American though they are probably NSX lights.

"But if you have genuine questions or want to come and view it just let me know."

How about "How did it get on in the IVA?"

Massive sticker along the bottom of the screen for Greenlight, the insurance brokers. I wonder how many of those mods are actually declared and, more importantly, do Greenlight even want to be associated with that Fiesta? hehe

I’d assume mods are declared if using Greenlight as they are a modded car specialist

I was curious about this so i messaged the seller and he says he has never been challenged driving around with the wheels exposed but he does have a set of mudguards/wheel arches that can be attached if required.



I bet it is a hoot to drive, a RWD V8 mini!

I suppose, but making it RWD will have taken part of the essential Mininess away from it. Some people have actually fitted a FWD V8 package into a Mini; I imagine it would be the definitive source for the expression 'torque steer'.

Depends what cover he has and how fussed he is. With my Scoob I have a page of A4 listing everything as I have like for like cover on upgraded / modified bits and want them replaced with the same if anything happens.
If he isn't fussed about stuff like that you could get away with just saying something like bodywork modifications, decals.


that Merc is terrible
