Dummy brakes all in now.

Stole Paul's idea for adding fake pads.

If it doesn't fit first time, use harsh words...!

Now working on the interior. Moving the center console forward. Need to cut in the window switches, and I'll also have the hazard switch on the tail end of the console.

I figured alloy sides to reduce the wall thickness given the need to add a little foam then leather. Going to see if I can route the MDF edges to soften the corners. Will coat the MDF to seal it in case of moisture damage.

Pleased with the way the exhaust has worked out, and my LED lamps for the number plate.

I figure I should have waited until I had checked the fit on the leather clad dash, but I couldn't wait. Love these.

Thanks fellas. I do love the rosso cars, but mine had to be white. There was no other way.

Thanks fellas, I sent the DNA kit receipt, paint receipt [major cost], pics of the original car, the stripped car, and the 'complete' car in the MoT station, the recent MoT, and a completed DVLA form V627/1. And, said what I wanted the description to be. There were no Qs. Just got the V5 back saying it was the DNA and no mention of Toyota or MR2 anymore  ;D
