Special edition Roadsters make me happy. Good thing…because Mazda was gracious enough to bless us with tons of them. M-Editions are some of my favorites. When I first decided I wanted an NA it was going to be one of the coveted Merlot Mica ’95 M-Editions. Of course, that didn’t quite end up being the path I chose.
Regardless – they still own a large part of my heart. It’s especially for the lucky M-Edition owners that I’ve come up with this unique stripe style.
I know…that’s not a color scheme from a M-Edition car in my photoshop job. That’s because I already had a template set up to test my stripe designs on the white car. Regardless, I think this particular design is really cool. It begins at the trailing edge of the front wheel arch and travels horizontally down the side of the car where it terminates with the “M-Edition” logo. As you can imagine, each side is unique in how the stripe dissects the “M”. It’s an interesting detail. On the driver’s side the word “Edition” is in the color of the stripe and on the passenger side it gets knocked out of the stripe and lets the body color show through.
The stripes don’t have to be mounted as high as they are in the mockup. I think that it looks cool closer to the body line of the car. But they can be mounted down near the rockers as well.
Now all I need is for someone with a Merlot Mica ’95M rolling on bronze wheels to order these in the bronze vinyl I have so that I can see what the car I would have built might have looked like!
