    Hello all Had my Eunos Mk 1 for about 20 years, and my Dad had it for 4 years before that. It's the 1.6 auto import, K reg, red with black cloth, and we got it at 3 years old. It's still only done 120km (yup, "kms" because import, remember!), and apart from exhausts and tyres, it's only ever...

    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?

    Hi, my name's Sam and I think I'm addicted to MX5s. You may remember me from such build threads as "Stancey Gayness Guyness" (link here) and other such comments around the forum. So I sold most of my shiny bits on the other car, straightened myself out, then saw this for sale on eBay and it...

    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...

    before I begin I'll give you brief idea of whats going on. I recently got a MX5 which has a roller paint job.....but I knew I wanted to do a respray so this didn't bother me. So last night after work I thought I would start looking at the over-spray or over-roll in this case on the chrome and...

    Hey! Just thought I'd start a project thread for my Eunos. After getting the track day bug in my little Fiesta, I decided I needed something a bit more dedicated. Something small, cheap, fun and RWD that handles like it's on rails...so a 5 seemed the obvious choice. While stashing money away...

    Hi, I'm new here and picked up a mk1 Eunos a few days ago. It's a bit rough around the edges, but for a 23 year old car, nothing too drastic. I paid £620 for it, haggling the seller down from £795, and best of all it came with 10 months MOT, and 4 months tax. The body work overall is in...
