Looks superb! Has the dome been painted inside the top area, and leaving a clear rear view area?

The dome is painted outside, although there is no crack. Rear view area is left clear.
Engine runs, so i should go test driving it.

A late car for Scandinavia. Nothing better than unmolested machinary. The dome might well clean up if one has the patence. Sadly my 7k miler has had the dome broken by kids messing about with a broom. It was mint until about 7 years ago. One of the reasons it came up for sale. The only prob with these low milers is you have to be reluctant to change anything on the car as it looses the originality that is what makes it so interesting.
So are the oil seal hard on the first run? Do you change them if they are? I decided Black Bazzer's yes, the silver car, no.

In the Design Museum near Tower Bridge they have a red KR200. I think it is listed as a Messershmitt, but does mention FMR. However, I think it is actually a Mivalino, made in Italy. It has a white fibre-glass roof with a small perspex window panel, looking similar to your.
