:thumbup: I was only thinking this morning that those parts need doing on KIMI 3, as they are letting down the engine bay.

I'd be really pleased if I can get them to look as good as those s(c)
KIMI 1 : 1st Gen, "hybrid" 1983 S2 running gear in a 1985 S3 shell, SORN'd, long term resto project
KIMI 2 : 1st Gen, 1983 S2, recommissioned after 10 yr layup. Now sold.
KIMI 3 : 1st Gen, 1983 S3
Plus a 2004 Full Bridgeported RX-8

That was the starting point yesterday. The two side parts and something else ? What is that other plate for? Don't have a pic of the top tin before.

Looks like one of the heat shields around the fuel tank?

I thought so, was lying loose in the car when I bought it. Inbetween the tank and muffler.

Not stainless, made from a steel sheet.
due to the quarantine rules, suddenly a lot of time at home. Still work on the car for a long time. Hope the weather stays sunny, much more motivation than to continue working.
