What does suicide doors mean on a mr2? Do you mean lambo doors?

What sort of shows or mags was the car in? At first glance it doesn't appear to be massively modified.

Good luck with the project. There are a couple of cars being broke on here at the minute that could be useful for some of the bits you need

What were you doing to the wiring?
That car could be a real minter with a little tlc!
I'm liking the body kit etc but IMO that exhaust needs to go pronto, I can honestly say I have never seen one of those before and I don't think I ever want to see another lol.

lol! ya, i'm thinking the same thing about the exhaust and the rear lights too.

Restore back some originality and it could be better! Is it a turbo or n/a?

Hi there, fine looking car and i could probably get used to the lights but I would replace that exhaust with something more subtle and maybe bigger wheels.
I am not a major fan of larger wheels, but the ones on it at the moment look a bit too small with the bigger bumpers and skirts.
Did this have a playstation and screens in the frunk at one stage, saw one similar at a a show in milstreet years ago?

Best of luck with it

I agree with the boys about the exhaust but its ur car so its what you like that matters. Agree with you about painting those bits black-fake carbon fibre is a no go. Keep up the good work and keep posting plenty of updates/pics

if i could get a nice sports system for right money for her i would buy it but i think a standard exhaust would just make it look unfinished i hear ya about the wheels they are 17 but look small i mite stick on a set of white rotas 17 inch i have on my other 2 to see how they look.im not sure but there was some system in the frunk and boot alright poor lad spent a fortune on the car prob still paying the credit union back lol ill keep the pics coming!

You should hold onto but change the exhaust system! It looks like a one off and someone might want it.
If you think of it, make a vid of the exhaust in action and upload it to youtube and then right click on the vid, copy and paste it onto this thread.
Keep up the good work!!

cmere that car is class still unsure about the exhaust but other then that its pretty cool, u should put the single air intakes on the sides would look savage a bit of chopping fiberglassing painting would look class.

id love to have an ex show car id have every magazine it was in bought
