    Hi all, New to the forum but been messing about with two MX5, one a Merlot, sadly no longer with us, the other a Eunos 1.8 S-special - Cherry Red. Had the Eunos for a few years and issue on the passenger rear quarter paintwork has been a steady creep as the lacquer comes away. I didn't think...

  3. Guides: Exterior & Chassis
    Around two years ago I decided to venture into restoring some mk1 daisy wheels. I saw a lot of resources and good guides, but mainly within the USA market, so considering two years later the wheels still looked pretty good - I thought I'd write up how I did it for us Brits. First, the materials...
  4. Problems
    Hi All, Being a newbie, I sanded my brake caliper to clean it, under the surface rust and dirt it seemed to have some form of black paint. My question is, do i need to paint my caliper with high temp paint? Or can i leave it without any paint? Thanks

    Hi guys, I'm just looking for people's opinions on plastidip. I understand the pros and cons of paint (expensive option but permanent and good finish) but what are the pros and cons of plastidip? How permanent can you make it? What's the lifespan of plastidip? How can I make it harder to peel...

    Hi guys, I was wondering if anybody knew how to find out the paint code for their Mazda? I've got a MK2.5 MX5 Pheonix in Black, red/black interior. Parts have rusted, others have got scratched and chipped. I plan to tackle a panel at a time, but before I do anything like that... I need to...

    Hi folks, Done my mk1 in matte black many times but this year fancy a change to gloss/shiney black. So, i've stripped the panels back using the DA sander and they're pretty much at bare metal. Using a tin of Simoniz Gloss black I get a great finish straight out of the can, looks phenomenal...

    Gutted! Driving home last night, a cats eye flicked up and bounced down the side of my 1990 V Spec. Paint was immaculate, and now has a number of small but fairly deep scratches on the drivers side. If I attempt a repair using rattle cans does BRG (HU) require clear coat? According to...

    Hi everyone, My daisy wheel centre caps could do with a clean up and paint, does anyone know the paint code or at least silver they have used that is a close match? Bit of a random question, thanks in advance.

    Having recently forked out far too much dosh on my 5, i am devising a fairly low cost project that should satisfy my endless need to be doing 'something' to the car. I have decided to try and spruce up my engine bay a little. I like my car to be clean and subtle from the outside and cabin, but...

    Hi, Could anyone recommend what type of paint I should use on the black metal parts that surround the window frame? Mine have discoloured over the years and I'd like to repaint them to make them look sparkly and new. Thanks in advance.

    So back in January I decided that the classic subtly of the Merlot paint job wasn't befitting of either the nature of the supercharged chariot of joy, or indeed the way it was drivien (mostly sideways round gravelly car parks). Having watched a youtube video too many I decided that vinyl was...

    Hey guys, Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations on what paint is best to use on the engine block, there seems to be quite a bit of choice online (some of which seems abit pricey) but I don't want to get one that's going to end up flaking off, also whats the best way to prep for...

    Having read Hammy's build thread I was inspired to try some new things! As normal I forgot the before picture! Trying the electrolysis to get rid of rust on a spare rear deck small cover and mates one. De-Rusted, cleaned with wire wool and WD40 then degreaser. Then using them to practice...

    As crazy as this may sound to some, I want to respray my car myself. So before I jump in I thought i'd throw it open to you lovely people. My current plan is to go over the car with 2k wet and dry and then using a compressor and a gun spray the whole car in a gazebo or barn. I'm going to keep...

    Hi, Quick question, does anyone know what the paint code is for the standard Euphonic Enkei wheels? I've seen it described as 'Mesh Titanium' on one website but that doesn't seem to correspond to any standard colours. Sadly the previous owner of mine resprayed the wheels silver to match the...

    Hi, I've got a white mk1 and am looking to do a full respray of the car so I was wondering if anyone knows how many litres of paint is enough to do the whole car in a good 2/3 coats? Thanks
  19. Exterior
    I purchased this MK1 a few weeks ago, and at some point in its life someone decided to paint the front bumper and skirts a horrible yellow color. (along with the calipers too!) Is there a way to remove this paint and keep the original underneath? I have heard of using paint thinner or nail...
