Re: Mk1 restoration

Happy New Year to all Menders!!! A few months away from the project. But now back on it :-D :-D :-D Continuing with the drivers side sill replacement. Starting at the front of the car, I cut out the rotten metal and then gave the remaining steel a good dose of rust inhibitor. Then fabricated the bo...

Re: A G-ltd arrives at wayne mansion

Seems you've been busy bossman. Glad you didn't buy the smart Roadster, worst gearbox in human history. I'm enjoying this thread.

Re: 1991 Eunos V-Special Mod thread 2

And here endeth the thread. Car sold today, away with her new keeper down to Chester. It was fun while it lasted... You barely had her that long. You fixed her all up and then parted ways. Was the offer that good? Something wrong? Are you going for a family car? So often i see great looking cars be...

Re: Mrs Mchattie's MK 3

I need to pay more attention, didn't know Sue bought a 5 :shifty: That black "MM" sprayed onto the rear reminded me of stories from the old days of TVR. Glad to see this Mk3 will be the best it possibly can though. Now let's see if Ian keeps this one as shiney as the red un... :auto-layrub...

Re: Hoodedreeper's Mk1 The Purple Monster

Damn Chris! I cannot believe i missed the last few posts..i only realised what happened after speaking to you on instagram (therealaardvark). Gotta say, always loved and respected your 5. Sad that she will be stripped and we shall lose another stunning car from the shows. I wish you (once again) the...

Re: my first shot at an NA

As i passed my MOT and was expecting to fail due to a sticky caliper (FR) i had some time so i thought I'd address the unfinished cosmetics in the boot. Tackled some rust patches 3 years ago but never finished them as i always have stuff in my boot. 20180904_113239.jpg A bit of masking and a can of ...

Re: Hello from Derby

Welcome to the club buddy. Great choice of car. The Pheonix 1.8 is my favourite Mk2 and in my eyes the best "special edition" MX5 of any shape. As for all the stuff you need & want to do, take your time. Start with the basics. Get the chassis rust sorted and maybe start coming to the e...

Re: Coolant Reservoir Clean

A few members have used jetwashes to clean them. I ended up using various bottle brushes and lots and lots of detergent.

Must say your idea is smarter than mine. Its also similar to how we clean loose rust from our old aircooled VW fuel tanks before relining the tanks. :handgestures-thumbup:

Re: Astonmazda the story so far

As I'm sure you know, we love such dedication and attention to detail. That colour, chiltern green by any chance? Would love to see that car once its done. It is chiltern green. An Aston colour. I'm based in Stockport pal but do go to Wigan most Friday nights (see the wife's folks) should be gettin...
