You'll probably know I had engine fire in my White MX5 Turbo. Currently stripping it down and theres just too much to replace. Not as simple as putting another engine in,every hose has been damaged aswell as the wiring loom. It may have been cost effective to change everything,but having a front and rear fire aswell as an impact both sides,it was time to start fresh.
 

 I hunted locally for a clean Mk1 shell,couldnt find any until James Cribb mentioned he had a mint shell possibly for sale. So with a few phone calls later myself and Stephen had agreed on a deal,and today I took delivery of it.
 

The car was purchased in Japan,over there it had thousands of pounds spent on it including a highly tuned engine on carbs,Garage Vary body kit,Garage Vary bonnet,centre shotgun exhaust,roll cage and much more! I've been told it was used as a Touge Car while over there.
 

 While it was over there it had a respray (originally Red,arent they all!) in a Honda midnight purple (I've got the colour code wrote down somewhere). The inside has been stripped and the floor and behind the seats have been painted the same colour).
 

The car was imported to the UK in 2007,and has covered hardly any miles in that time. I believe the shell has only covered 40k and you can certainly see that! Theres not a single spot of rust on her!
 

The car got sold earlier this year and was stripped and put back to standard form. The car had a Veilside front bumper,which got removed and a stock bumper was refitted,hence why its a different colour,same goes with the bonnet.

The engine was removed and a stock 1.6 long nose engine was put in its place.
 

Plans so far is to fit the HSD coilovers and the carbon fibre panels and who knows from there on!

Was good to see you today. I have every confidence you can do TokyoRich proud with his old car. Steve was adamant that if the car was to be sold on that it would have to go to the right home and allow it's legacy to live on. I am really looking forward to seeing what you do with it!

 

Best of luck dude

So what's the first job? Putting a Veilside kit back on? :D

Pretty much want to echo what James said. As I mentioned at Trax, not that I knew anything ;) I kinda understand the significance of this car through its amazing history. I mean, an ex touge car? How cool is that???

Get busy with the awesome Chris!!! Can't wait to see where this one goes......

Love the purple, looks smart.

The carbon boot/panel/bonnet looks good with the purple too.

Looking forward to seeing how you progress with this one

RKRs have sold,as theres no way 9j et0 will fit unless I buy new tyres (current ones are only 3-4 months old hardly used),loads of camber and arch flaring. I just about got the XXRs on (8.25j et0) and I want minimum camber this time.

What did you do with the engine and the epic suspension? Assume this is in something else? Those quantums were about 5 times the price (and quality) of HSD's, so I assume the quantums are in another eunos etc.

Everything got stripped when Stephen and James bought the car earlier this year. I know the engine is now in their Hayashi,not sure on the suspension.

I bought the car bog standard
