Somehow I don't think that the Honda's front bumer looks too good... The raked air scoops are too high for that car, which itself has got to be a lot lower and taller to look good with those... but I like the rear... and I didn't particularly like the rims too... somehow thin 5-spoke 15" Honda rims (from O.Z. I think... saw 'em at the Whitefield showroom) look best on that car... But i like the front headlamp and grille section... well done car overall...!!

Cheers!!

Hey.......wouldn't be able to tell you how much the fiberglass leaf springs will cost as i got them from my Uncle who in his prime ran a modification garage and his friend who worked with the material made them for his M800 project which was later abandoned!
The OEM leaf springs are around 3K......

Design 5 gets my thumbs up too, i think it looks so much more masculine than the rest of them.

Nice car man. The old body 800 has so much soul and character. Take care of it.....will soon be a classic. Seat wise I like #2 but it dosent recline, will kill your back on a long drive. #5 is probably more practical.

BTW, was'nt your uncle involved in designing a mid engined M-800 conversion. What ever happened to that car??

Firstly thanks for the compliment.......i love the car.....
now....about my unc'...........the mid engined 800 was completed and was even featured in the BSM........DC did the bodywork.......it was a red one and it rocked!!!

I ripped off the seats from an abandoned contessa 2 seater lying in his garage.......... they are fixed backs......non recliner types......need to decide on an upholstery design!!!
