    Do you mean the boot rack? When the roof is down there is very little space for any luggage so if you want to travel you need somewhere to put your suitcase. I think it gives it a "classic" car look.

    Such a comprehensive inventory from Meister Scooty is usefully to get ideas and see Copen possibilities.

    I really like that grill. just followed link but couldn't find it on their website.

    For the rear, IMHO it would look better if you removed the Copen badge so it wasn't under the boot rack. Either refit the badge in different place or just leave it off.

    Unfortunately it seems that they do not produce it anymore.
    Here's a link to the original catalogue page:
    http://moderno24.com/rouge_noir/catalog/index.html

    I also thought about moving the Copen badge somewhere else, but as I only put on the luggage rack in cases I really need it, I decided to leave he Copen badge where it is.
    Also just could not find a place I really liked to put it instead and taking it off completely is no option for me. ;)

    I've looked at this thread so many times and really admire the amount of work & thought gone into the look of this car.

    Totally amazing job. Well done to you Scooty!

    Well said Nev. He is a top bloke with two smart Copens. That's why he's a two time KKITP Champion.

    Is the wooden handbrake a cover or real wood?

    Scooty's Copen

    I once legitimately parked in a really posh restaurant car park and felt perfectly okay with the Ferrari and the Aston Martin that I squeezed between.

    I felt more awkward when I parked up just off camera at this years Copen meet, directly opposite Scooty's electric green monster.

    Andreas the owner and keeper is also one of the most reliable and decent geezers you will ever meet.
