I sold the Micra a couple of weeks ago, so to fill the gap on my drive I bought a small red car.
This one has to be sensible. This I have interpreted as, being able to get over speedbumps with passengers on board, for the children to be able to get in and out (harnesses and two doorness of the Micra hampered that) and for it to be newer and require less fixinging.
I was also supposed to be getting something boring so I spent less time interwebbing about it. It hasn't succeeded so far!
Somehow - with assistance from the Mrs it was decided that a Wagon R+ would fit the bill. Handily I had some wheels in 4x100 in stock. And some the that could be with a little effort.
I'm just going to dump a few pics now, and do a proper update when definite progress has been made.
I've always loved weird and wacky cars especially Kei cars and not your run of the mill dailies. I loved your micra and now can't wait to see what you do to this. I do want an Agila in the same shape as this as my Bertone Coupe can be thirsty.
I'm moving away from the idea of gold and back to black, I think the wheels will look great with black centres, and the arches will add to the amount of black on the car already. Maybe Shelby stripes over it, chin spoiler, bit of rake and side exits in front of each rear wheel.
I got all excited when the tyres were delivered earlier and mounted one of the rears.
Trial fit will be happening some time while waiting for the long studs and arches to arrive. I'll lazy cut a disk of hips to glue over the wheel center to cover the extra holes, once painted it'll be as good as invisible.
