Good question Mark, he's obviously not a member on here anymore which is a shame, really lovely guy. Met him that time at RR and spent a great day with him. Froze our arses off but still very enjoyable :D

Yes that MZ front bumper with some spirit R lights would finish the exterior off nicely for the OEM+ look I'm after. Need to get the flush and smoothed bootlid with Nissan GTR spoiler painted and mounted, was hoping to get my hands on some MZ rear R3 spats to paint at same time but they seem equally as rocking horse poop to get a set of.

Just about finished my RHDjapan shopping list for when my bonus lands..... hopefully can get it all before show season...

Essex Rotary used to do the rear spats,not sure if they still do though? They were not genuine MZ spats but they looked identical.I've seen the MZ front end on a white R3 and it looked damn good in fairness

Yeah I have seen the ones in Essex, not heard of anyone getting them in a while from there. I enquire at some point this month. I did ask goobie for the ones of his white R3 but they didn't survive removal or another set didn't and he was unwilling to attempt removing those. Something along those lines and me without them was the outcome.
