    Hi All, I am looking for some advice on what options I may have when it comes to repairing my mx-5 which was crashed into just this morning.

    Afternoon all! My name is Zac and I have recently taken ownership of a 1996 UK Mk1 1.8. The plan is to mod it for a bit of fun on the road but the main focus is to track it alongside my father's Westfield. It will be a learning curve for both of us as we have no mechanical expertise at all, but...

I'm looking to do some repair work but a but cautious of whether you can do anything substantial with an edge of the hardtop.
