Hey guys, i've submitted my car before but it is much more JDM than it used to be and now I have some proper, somewhat arty, shots of the beast. I've been working on making the car as JDM as possible in the last 6 months and it's definitely been a challenge since the Astina was never meant to be a performance platform and there is very little MazdaSpeed/Eunos/Efini parts for the BG Astina. Let me know what you think, I'm hoping to come along to the next QLD EOMM and show off a little. :mrgreen:

Thanks guys.

Actually both the steering wheel and rims were options for the late model Eunos NA MX-5s I believe.
