My big passion in life (at least a hobby) is Star Wars. I have used Merkur parts in some of my custom creations for the SW world.

Can you spot and identify the Merkurs parts?

Who would have thunk it, that the washer nozzle can look so mean!

How about these parts?

This a Mandalorian armor costume that I built for a friend of mine. No viable white 88 XR's died to make this. (just some good parts)

Image
I used an entire good hood, mirrors, and wheel flares from an 88. I also used some phone dial wheel caps, just in honor of ruining the parts.

I did the opposite, I used some Starwars influence in my cars.

You must tell me where you got those letters you have on that grill.
Is that the Matrix/Mazda XR decals?

I'm sure those letters are from an Explorer.
Funny, I used the Matrix 'Xr' nameplate on my 88 XR.
