    The gutter above the door is a good idea. It might stop water running of the roof into the car when you open the window.

    What are the fake louvres made of and are they stick on?

    The fake louvres are plastic, chrome quality is good,they fix with 3m adhesive so you need to get it bang on first time.

    what was your reason for fitting the louvres, just the chrome appeal as opposed to any practical benefit?
    I like the geometric pattern, where did you get the tape from :D

    oh yes, the lower bullet hole is the wrong way round, unless you had a prisoner in the boot and they fired outwards :eek:

    the shadow is below the burr which indicates its poking outwards.

    Nice touches Bruce! I was thinking hard on putting some chrome trim on the wheel arches too. Looks good, might just go ahead with it. :)

    I saw that you have a chrome wiper blade. Where did you get them?

    It probaly wouldnt ricochet, what I said Is called artistic license. An unlikely scenario to create the pun. :D :think:
    Actually bullets have been known to bounce off the most unlikely surfaces. It's all about the angle they hit them at.

    What size are yours? Do they work well on your Copen? A direct fit I suppose? :)

    You will need a 15"and 18"blade they do work well but may be slightly heavy,No problems in fitting old one of new one on.

    Including humans, water and animals.

    I was told of once when there was an angry bull that escaped a field and eventually the police were called. It was decided that it was far too dangerous to try and herd the snarling, angry animal back so armed response turned up with 9mm sub-machine guns and took aim.. the 9mm rounds simply bounced off the muscular bull and only served to p*** it off even more!! Had to wait for the local more powerful sniper weapon to be deployed before it could be killed.

    Theres also a news report where a robber shot a victim in the face in America, but the round bounced off the victims skull and ended up killing the shooter. Ha!
