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

Re: Import CAT requirements. VOSA information

Update. Retook the test this morning, rest of the issues were fine (fog light switch, number plate, headlight beam height) but as my 1992 (J-reg) mk1 was imported in 1999 (according to the dvla V5) they were trying test the emissions on my eunos as a 1999 car. Luckily i had the information this time...

He insisted that all cars had the same test after august 92 (mine is December 92) but i have found that if the vehicle is not...
