MX5 1999 1.8

Postby mazmarks » Thu Apr 13, 2017 10:11 pm

New to this, I purchased a 1999 mk2 for my wife's birthday and I guess for me to play with. This has turned into a task having now found rot in the forward chassis rails, oil leaks on top of the general repairs. the task begins.

Thanks for the link to the replacement rails, I am lucky and work for an engineering company with a laser cutter so am able to draw and make some parts myself. I have used 2mm cr sheet and will be seam welding it in and coating with zinc rich primer and chassis black before top coating after the mot.

I started in the engine by stripping out the right side and cleaning, the P.A.S reservoir I removed and referbed. The mounting bracket was almost rotted through so i cut it off and made a new one from stainless steel, before welding back on i shot blast the res and when assembled primed and painted satin black.
