    That Honda man is the exact uniform all service operators in Japanese dealers wear. Uniform in Japan is an obsession it something else which we will never get to grips in England.

    There is which uniform to wear for each ocassion what purpose and for which staff.

    Caps always on indoors take hat off outdoors.
    Meeting jacket has be crease free no black marks two pens in top pocket , name badge on.
    Honda whites have to be white no matter what..if it dirty you are going to be frown upon.

    its an obsession, In Japan I was constantly in and out of these robes and etiquette

    There's another set with S2000 in it, plus few more cars. I'll find out.

    In the meantime, I found 2 nice details inside the reception

    Leaflets and logo on the wall :Smile:

    I think it's just an old toy. You could restore it and paint it white! :Smile:
