That is one sweet looking machine! That is my second favorite colour on a 510, they always look great in this colour, especially the sedans.

Welcome to TheRealm.

Are those the old Cibie headlights? If so, I haven't seen a set of those since the UFO days!

If you could put your general location in your avatar, it certainly helps moving forward.

Welcome to the realm.

Those seats are awesome!

Do the headlights work (as in project a useable beam that doesn't blind?)
Because when you spend a silly amount of money on a silly, trivial thing that will help you not one jot, you are demonstrating that you have a soul and a heart and that you are the sort of person who has no time for Which? magazine. – Jeremy Clarkson

Yes they do work and don't blind others. They have the h4 conversion. I am actually planning to go back to circle headlights in the next few days. I have all the pieces, I just need to install them.

I really like those seats. The color, material and style are on point.

I put in the OEM lights and a powdercoated black grill and bezels. I threw in two funnels as I didnt care for the amber lights against the yellow paint and one of the lights was cracked anyway. I also installed a BLOX custom weighted shift knob as my greddy one, when tightened, made the "Greddy" and 1-5 gears upside-down.
