A mate of mine loves my MX so for his first car bought a '92 Eunos. Bit shabby but serviceable, and as it turned out as cheap as anything else for him to insure. It's shabbiness would be helped if he did not keep driving it into inanimate objects, but hey. First car.

Thus far I have shown him how to change his brake pads, wheels, and change the clutch fluid. I will also be showing him how to change the clutch slave as his clutch is not right, and it feels like the slave needs renewing.

Most recently was changing and cleaning the electric windows, and fitting new speakers. The previous owner had made a huge mess of the speakers so that took a while, but all done now.

A lot of work on his car to do, so I will practice a few things on his motor before I try them on mine! (He won't mind, and it seems a fair exchange!)

Yes, photos would have been good! But it was going to rain and I was going hell for leather last time. (Which meant I ended up covered in that black gloop that holds the door card plastic in place - which comes off nicely with a spot of penetrating fluid spray I discovered...)
