Sorry for stepping aboard so late.

This is great work Dave, the car looks amazing.
What are your plans on the interior?

You are changing my perception I had of the RX5. I must admit, wasnt my favorite RX, but its definately growing on me.

Great work Dave.

Dave, you really do make this all seem easy!! I liked the blooper cut right on the end of the clip.. :lol:

A couple inches lower and you'd have one mean looking Luxo sled. Either way it's come up a treat!

How good do RX5s look!!!!!! :tu: :D
I have always loved RX5s and will argue with any other rotorhead about all the pros/cons
of them versus RX2/3/4/7. At the end of the argument all it comes down to is, power to weight ratio!
BIG DEAL!!!!!! :evil: :roll:

You know what..............
2011 Mazda Shinari design concept - fast and strong motion that strikes to the heart.
Hmmm, I think the RX5 had that design in 1976! It took Mazda another 34 years to add 2 extra doors!

1976 design updated with Dave's blood sweat and tears.

2011 design and hundreds of Mazda engineers!

It's amazing what painting a car in the right colour does for it, the red makes the car pop 8)

I'd love own one myself some day, great work.
