    Liking the look of those bonnet hinges, have toyed with the idea of making something similar myself. Wonder if the boot has similar?
    Side vents look good too.

    Exceptional quality build - evident from those photos indeed. Stunning.
    DAX Cobra. May contain nuts. Always read the label.
