Re: What have you done to your MX5 today/yesterday?

Mirrors dismantled, cleaned and new bolts etc fitted. Prepped and sprayed the mirror base cover and the whole lot refitted. They adjust like silk now but noticed a small crack in the old base cover.

So looks like next weekend is a bit more spraying :)
