Well here it is, my first 'Members Rides' thread :)

 

I've always been slightly reluctant to post in this section for several reasons, mostly because the quality of the work I see going on here frankly puts anything I'll be doing to shame! None the less I've had a word with myself and decided t's high time I joined in, however lack-lustre my progress might be  :)

 

Long story short about a month ago I spotted a Mk1 '89 Eunos on 98k 300 miles away in Essex for reasonable money and appearing to show original spot welds in the arches and a rust free body so in a moment of madness I bought it unseen and trailered it up North. A week later the car turned up with a great corrosion free body  :thumb-up: The caveat emtor to the situation is that the car has a weapons grade 'to do' list!

It's worth mentioning that initially this didn't win me much favour in the Precision household, given I'd only sold my Mk2.5 eight weeks ago with the intention of being 'sensible' -_-  After some explaining (Groveling) I won the missus over and we eventually agreed that I'd been like a duck out of water without a 5 and finally I worked my way out of the doghouse. Phew!

As mentioned in the above posts, the car has an incredibly clean never welded body (A small miracle for an'89 car that's been in the UK since 2002), probably owing to the fact that the last owner had it for eleven years and had covered very few miles between 2002 and it's current MOT, however this is where the good stuff ends and it does need paint.

 

Never welded arches and sills showing original Mazda spotwelds.

Various bits and bobs that need tidying, wiper arms and blades are a good example of this.

The problem list :whistle:  (The list is still growing as time goes on and I discover more 'quirks')

 

1. The car drove like a box of frogs. All four dampers were iffy leading to a bouncy castle like ride and dodgy alignment gave the car a truly sinister feel at anything over 20MPH.

2. Driver's side window hardly worked, passenger side didn't work at all.

3. Paint, this is an obvious one and something I can't ignore or live with for that matter.

4. Wet boot...

 

Problem No1 was sorted at no small cost after ordering new ExelG dampers, Autolink's own springs, and bumpstops/boots all round, not cheap but it needed doing and came in at half the cost of expensive coilover set-ups like Meisters etc. These were fitted at AK Automotive and the car also was given a full 'Fast Road' four wheel alignment set up. The changes were profound and as you'd expect it transformed the way it felt to drive  :) It was also great to have the lads down there cast an expert eye over the car, and I was relieved to have them confirm the car was just as good as I thought it was :thumb-up: I'd already changed the air filter and spark plugs myself, however whilst at AK the engine oil/filter were replaced as well as the gearbox and diff oils for good measure. Needless to say I drove home with a massive smile plastered all over my chops!

 

Problem No2 was a cheap (Thank God!) and easy fix and with a healthy dose of white grease and some time spent working the windows up and down they now operate as they should.

 

It looked to me that the doorcards had never been taken off the car before, again, a small miracle for a 26 year old car.

On to problem No4, the hood that came with the car seemd past it's sell by date and had a repair on the back window, however after a heavy going over with a hose the interior reamained dry. Bonus I thought, but not so fast... On further inspection the boot was soaking wet with obvious signs of mould on the bootlid indicating this had been a problem for some time. Initially I thought it could be one of four areas, light gaskets, aerial, frankenstein striker plates or the rain rail.

 

The water seemed to originate from the back of the boot towards the cabin area so I suspected the rain rail and came up with the idea of borrowing my old hard top back from a friend and then trying the car out... Bingo, after much hosing/rain/time the boot remains 100% dry so I can rule out the previously mentioned areas. At some point in the not too distant future I'll have to sort this but for now I'll continue to use the car with the hardtop. TBH I'm not too fussed about the convertable aspect of these cars and having had one for years before the novelty has worn off ;) It's more about having a light RWD car that handles well for me and I'd rather spend cash elsewhere and put this problem on the back burner... For now.

In the meantime I gave the interior a much needed clean and it came up pretty well :)

 

2cdheo2.jpg

 

One thing that shocks me is the originality of the whole thing, even down to the OEM tape deck stereo and stearing wheel :mellow:

 

I also got tired of looking at the shockingly bad wiper/wiper arms. These were an absolute [email protected]#"$* to get of the car but several coats of Simoniz tough black later and they ended up looking rather good! Best part about this was I already had the paint hanging about so this was another free fix.

This pretty much brings me up to date! Forthcoming jobs include changing the wheels as I'm really not keen on the Borbet C replicas that came with the car and have a couple of options left over from my last 5 wheel wise.

 

As well as this I miss the sound my old MX5Parts exhaust used to make so I'll probably be swapping the standard one for something more fruity. Paint is also high on the agenda, and I'll also be fitting quilted door cards and some vintage style door-pulls kindly provided by OnePaintedMan ;)

 

I'm pretty undecided in terms of the direction I will take the car in mod wise, a big concern is also having fresh ideas of what to do... I'm very keen on the retro-themed cars I see here, however I'm also painfully aware of how deeply un-original it would be if I just followed the same route as everyone else  -_- With a new baby and a house move looming as well as a planned DIY car port project on the cards progress is likely to be slow anyway, so at least it will give me plenty of time to make my mind up...

Update to show slightly reduced ride height using Autolink's standard springs...

 

28mcxad.jpg

 

I'd initially expected the car to sit lower than this after reading the bumf on Autolink's website (And they may well drop further in coming weeks/months), they have however reduced the ride height by a modest 10mm after measuring before and after. This probably still looks pretty 4x4-esque to lots of you but I'm fairly happy with it TBH. My regular routes, as well as the place I'm about to move to involve several fairly nasty and also unavoidable speedbumps. I'm also a sucker for wider wheels and couldn't quite face the idea of butchering original rust free bodywork with an arch roller in order to make them fit!

And this morning I've replaced my cracked and worn rear number plate surround panel with a good used one and gone from this...

 

2wd2fps.jpg

 

To this... Sourcing good used panels is hopefully going to keep my paint bill to a minimum, and this one's a great match colour wise looking as though it has been on my car it's whole life :yes:

 

301oshc.jpg

 

As well as making and fitting my diamond quilted leatherette doorcards and OnePaintedMan door pulls. As others have said this is a really easy mod to do but makes a massive difference and really suits the car. (Not sure what the lines running down this photo are, but they aren't there in real life! Suffice to say David Bailey I ain't)

The Wooden Nardi steering wheel picked up from an earlier visit to AK helps tie the whole 'retro' look interior together too IMO.

Well it's been a frustrating few weeks for me car wise! After a particularly satisfying clean up session I removed the arch liners and unbolted the bottoms of the front wings I was able to pull out handfuls of dried mud, but after a good hosing out no rust was found :dance: I also managed to fit a new hood on a frame I'd picked up as well as repairing the rain rail too and after many tests the car remains bone dry! 

 

This is where my good luck ran out... After taking a trip to a local auto-electrics place to have a nasty/aging aftermarket immobiliser removed I decided  I may as well just get them to fit the cheap head unit I'd bought at the same time. At this point it became clear I'd managed to get completely the wrong surround. The radio was fitted regardless, but looks gash with a capital G and will need something doing (Problem 5). Hopefully the E36 clock/cubby bought from Adm on here over the weekend should remedy this. I set of home from said auto-electrics specialist feeling disspointed about the scruffy looking stereo set up and noticed my clutch felt pretty spongy/light... This is where the REAL trouble started. Within the space of 2 miles I was finding it hard to get into gears, and a mile further on I had no clutch whatsoever. I managed to stagger home in 2cnd (Problem 6).

 

The lack of clutch was a big issue as the car had an appointment with a paint shop on the Wednesday, and if I couldn't sort it I would end up costing the guy half a weeks work, not cool! Panic set in and I rushed to the motor factors and ordered a clutch master and slave cylinder after getting a bit of advice from the nutz collective and hoped this would sort it. Monday was fraught but I managed to get them on and thank God it solved the issue. I celebrated by Taking a trip to AK automotive and having them remove my aircon to save weight.

 

Next step was to drop the car off for paint repairs to the bonnet/boot/wing on Wednesday. The idea was that the work would be done by the following Monday, however I got a call to say the paint was causing problems and that two extra days would be needed meaning all would be completed today. As luck would have it I had  a call this morning after more issues involving some 'fish eye's' appearing in the boot paint. I was invited down to have a look, which I did and TBF the car is looking fantastic other than the boot and the flaws that were there are barley perceptible to me, but my paint guy Michael (Paint Yoda Supreme ;)) is a a perfectionist which has to be a good thing IMO. The issues with the paint make up problem number 7 :baseballbat: The delays have cost me 2 missed MOT's, but hopefully I'll have the car back tomorrow.

 

Unfortunately I didn't really get any pics of any of this lot happening on the basis I've mostly been too busy running about/calling people/being covered in clutch fluid, eyes filled with panic the whole time. Suffice to say the approach of just buying a 5 with a good rust free body and not worrying too much about anything else is proving to be more of a challenge than I'd imagined with problems so far nearly reaching double figures after only owning it for a couple of months... Serves me right for buying a 26 year old car that had been stored for extended periods of time! One good thing that's come of it is I've been forced to do some jobs like the rain rail/hood and replacing the clutch/slave cylinders that previously I wouldn't have dared to try if I'm honest so some confidence has been gained if nothing else!

 

My fingers hurt from typing all that so I'll stop now ;) I'm 100% determined to have this car sorted and pretty much where I want it with time left to enjoy the summer even if it kills me! Here's hoping for an easier/more fun time in the forth coming weeks and months...

And she's back :dance: Apart from a tiny bit of duff paint left on the front wing that will be getting sorted out next week things are looking spot on. I'm over the moon to have the car again and I'm really happy with the results, well worth the wait IMO!

 

mbu6vo.jpg

 

Now that's over and done with I can concentrate with the fun stuff and begin to make the car my own :)

 

For starters I've got this...

jqm9sy.jpg

 

For the record it's a Magnex catback. I don't know much about these and can't find much info online either TBH. It came up for sale locally and the price was right so I took a punt on it. We'll see...

 

In a moment of man logic it struck me that if I needed a new gasket to fit the exhaust it would be daft not to pick up one of these as they include gaskets and are on sale via MX5 parts at the mo'

 

105r5es.jpg

 

Hopefully this E36 clock/cubby will sort out my head unit fitment woes and tidy things up a bit...

 

25oyw75.jpg

 

And having spent ages rubbing back corrosion and failing lacquer and then re-polishing it's high time these were actually fitted to the car and used...

Busy day today. This morning started with stripping down my rain rail AGAIN. At the point at which I'd repaired I thought it would be a good idea to fit rubber washers to the captive studs to stop any possible leaks, and it worked. What wasn't so good was the washers I'd picked up from a plumbers merchant were too stiff and caused some serious and constant squeeking as the back end of the car moved about. I'd pretty much decided I'd live with it but after a week or two of driving round in what sounded like a mobile pet shop it became unbearable.

 

Rain rail stripped down...

 

9jixi0.jpg

 

I picked up some washers intended for purpose from DRMX5 on Ebay. Check the size difference, the DRMX5 washers are the clear ones on the left and are much more pliable.

 

awz6ll.jpg

 

And lastly a picture of one of the correct washers in situ. They sit on the back of the rail behind the hood and are intended to stop any leaks occurring around the areas that the studs sit.

Out for a quick road test and as suspected problem was solved!

After this I payed yet another visit to the good peole at AK Automotive, this time to have some tyres changed over to my freshly re-polished Rota RB and to fit the Magnex exhaust and MX5Parts decat.

 

I've reached a point now with the car where I feel it's getting to where I want it to be :)  In the short time I've had her she's had an new hood, new KYB shocks, Autolink springs and bumpstops/boots, new engine/diff/ gearbox oil, plugs, air filter, replacement clutch slave and master cylinders, as well some time getting the paint sorted.

 

The drive home was a hoot and the car felt much more peppy with the cat removed! I stopped en route to get some pics and looking at them in comparison with the pics at the start of the thread I'm really happy with the way she's looking now too.

 

Loving the Fandango-ness/dish of my RB's, I'm so glad to get these on!

 

ncdoue.jpg

 

Looking pretty retro me thinks...

Pop ups! After years of driving a Mk2 I still haven't got over the novelty of these and probably never will ;)

Got out with the birds this morning and fixed an annoying rattle from the glove box (I've decided to stop counting/numbering problems as it was getting depressing ;)) This one turned out to be an easy fix and after applying some adhesive pads to the inner lip of the dash and a bit of tape around the retaining catch the issue is now solved.

 

Probably went a bit overboard with the adhesive pads but if a jobs worth doing...

 

2cy33ps.jpg

 

I've also been thinking more and more about my ride height of late, although having recently just fitted new KYB's and Autolink springs I'm really not sure what to do. The springs are set to the earlier 'standard' ride height before mid nineties safety regulations came in and spoiled things and I spent a long time speaking to Andrew before settling on these...

 

This is where I'm at height wise...

 

zxzpd.jpg

 

I've measured before and after and the car does sit about half an inch lower than it did on the previous shot suspension... TBF it handles fantastically well with very little body roll and great feedback whilst being able to clear speedbumps with ease and feeling great to drive, even on our pot hole ridden Northern roads. I'll probably stick with it as the set up's fairly new and I haven't got the heart (Or money :no: ) to start changing things up already.

 

Onwards and upwards, I went out for an early morning blast on some of my favourite local B-roads and stopped for some pics.

 

1zzomjs.jpg

 

2jz9r5.jpg

 

I seem to be spending lots of time just driving for driving's sake without actually having somewhere specific to go, I very rarely did that when I had my Mk2... I used to take it with a pinch of salt when people wrote about the 'rawness' of a Mk1 compared with later models, but I'm starting to get what people are talking about. The fact that the earlier/lighter cars are so simple makes for a much purer driving experience, without ABS and being able to feel changes in road surface through the wooden Nardi wheel, big fun! :driving:

Busy day today cavity waxing my sills ;)

 

Two cans of Dynax S50 (One for each sill)

 

1054b9h.jpg

 

Seatbelt tower trims removed, great access here as a gaping hole leading directly to the sills is revealed...

 

if9060.jpg

 

More access gained to the sills by removing the 'kick' trim panels...

 

o8sykl.jpg

 

In full swing :)

 

eskgag.jpg

 

And the sign of sure success, S50 literally pouring out of the drainage channels.

 

259g07t.jpg

 

Horrible job, really messy but satisfying in equal measure! Two cans of cavity wax £25, protecting the car from future corrosion issues, priceless ;)

Thanks for the kind words everyone! RE ride height, the car has just had new shocks and springs all round as well as a proper four wheel alignment and feels like a million dollars to drive so I'm reluctant to start messing...Add to that the fact that the area I'm about to move to as well as my workplace are lined with speedbumps, not good :rant: If you were to ask me if I'd like the car to sit slightly lower I'd have to admit the answer would be yes...

 

@bettabuilda, it was looking at retro themed 5's like yours/OnePaintedMan's/smac's that drew me back into the whole thing and inspired me to buy a Mk1 so soon after selling my Mk2 and trying to move on ;) Really shocked me to see you selling up mate, yours is an absolute minter -_-

@bettabuilda, it was looking at retro themed 5's like yours/OnePaintedMan's/smac's that drew me back into the whole thing and inspired me to buy a Mk1 so soon after selling my Mk2 and trying to move on ;) Really shocked me to see you selling up mate, yours is an absolute minter -_-


Cheers bud! Get something posted on the discussion thread then Ha! :) I'll probably regret selling ( if it sells) but I have really enjoyed doing the work over the last few years and just feel it's time for me to move on :( have done this twice before and ended up selling and then buying another a few months later :)

I thought I could bring the whole MX5 chapter to a close after I sold my last one, I lasted all of three weeks...
