In Topic: Bought A Streetka

I managed to spray paint both the grilles without removing them with satin black paint. Just undid the top bumper screws an pulled bumper away enough to squeeze some card behind to mask off the radiator, and similar making for lower grille, then just masked around edge and sprayed like that. Looked perfect and only took 30 mins.

I don't think there is anything particularly out of the ordinary to look out for that would cause any serious worries that you would not look out for on any used car of that mileage. I would check that the heater works hot and cold, although a new control valve isn't a big job to replace. Air con working was a bit hit and miss on the ones I looked at. Wheels can buckle quite easily, so check for any knocks on the inside particularly. Rust is no where the issue it is with the regular Ka, just play close attention to the bottom of the doors. You already know about the door handles.

As it's going to be cold tomorrow, be very careful dropping the roof as the plastic screen can crak if not careful.

It does seem like a very low geared close ratio box, but I have never noticed ours making any noise though.

Not sure if you have searched on Google, but I have come across this, not a diagram but a description of what fits.

Probably not much help unless you can get a workshop manual, but the Winter Editions have a cable that comes through into the boot that you pull to release the cover when you have removed the hardtop, as the recommendation when the hardtop is in place, is to disconnect the solenoid to incase the release switch gets pressed accidentally.

When I have pulled on the cable before, it feels like a mechanical connection to the clips. Sorry I can't check for you, as the hardtop is on now for the winter.
