My highlight is pretty much the same colour - always wondered what shade of blue it was. 'Paris' Blue eh? Oh la la!!!

It's not the original colour we picked it from the 2009 model Nissan
Micra, i think it really suits the car.

Love the split screen! I can't believe that's a 2009 color, it looks perfect.

nah, surely it'd have trafficators wouldn't it? Can't see here from here. You're right though, the colour's bang on. Love the plate too...

wel twice i,ve had a run in with that sir wanker frosty joker , you know the forum bloke with the big ego . unless you are a frosty fan /follower what ever, he wont let you play with his bat & ball. . he knocked me of the perch this year after i upped him for going hard trying to find fault with the originality off the 49 , i retreived my score sheet & it only lost 11 points out of 600 ,& his car a complete heapa gets a win !!! wtf. . little man syndrome ,, i know it sounds like sour grapes & @ the end of the day you should take car shows with a grain of salt . any way i,ll only turn up for all british day car events , i,ve been to some good ones & there far more interesting , all though i hope to see your car again . thanks ben

Like the roof rack, Have you fitted seat belts. Not required in NZ but I don't like driving without them. I am but it is first on the list.

Yes we have seat belts fitted, wouldnt drive without them.We bought the roof rack off Ebay it's originally for a VW Beetle, so had to be widened.

Hi Ben, a fellow member "Dutch Moggyman" has some questions about your grille and I'm
