The ones I picked up sound similar. There are two units, each about 30cm. You can plug them into eack other or use extension pieces supplied to space them out.

Also thanks to @DaveMcT for some great suggestions and for supporting minimalism.
I like the stencil idea, but maybe the classic Fiat graphic or even something silly as in the screen grab.
I think we're going as far as having a rear light which lights up and maybe half a chrome rim at the front

Yeah I think the rear light will look good it will add a bit of contrast to it.

Re: Ever chosen the wrong paint colour

Personally I would keep it to the bare painted side panel. As you say the minimalist look is perfect.

Do the same with the Mini, though it would also need an A panel and front wing to complete the side. Stencil pix in the doorways and job done.
