    Hi, I've only had my MK3 MX5 for 3 months and it's first MOT with me has failed massively on both inner sills being badly rusted. Funny that because the last MOT didn't even have any advisories. Oh well, does anyone know a good welder anywhere near Horsham in West Sussex? It didn't cost too...

    Hello, New here but im sure this topic has been covered a number of times. I have some rust on my MX5 MK1, the car is actually fairly solid underneath but the rear arches have gone abit and there is a hole in one of the sills. I have bough sills and rear arch repair panels for both sides. Would...

    Hi, First of all, hello. I used to be a Nutz member, but left the fold a few years back. I've owned a couple of Mk1s, but that was when rust-free examples could be picked up quite cheaply, so I never had to worry too much about tinworm. I'm now on the hunt for a car to use for autotests and...

    Hi, Last week, I bought my first MX5! A 2002 Crystal Blue S-VT Sport. Enjoying every minute of it so far, putting the old Polo (my first car) up for sale shortly. Now, being 19 and a little bit cocky, I managed to spin the car into a hedge (in the wet) the day afer I bought it - there was very...
  6. How do I...
    Hi guys! So like many older MX5, my poor Jasmine has contracted a case of 'bodyrot'. This has happened mainly on the passenger side just behind the front arch. The front arch needs replacing as the bottom where it attaches to the sill has corroded that badly it's no longer attached to the...
  7. How do I...
    So I've got a 2003 MX5 with some rusty arches. The sills don't look too bad externally, or internally with my inspection camera showing some small amounts of surface rust. I'm DIY'ing the rust repair and have a pair of repair panels. The question is, do I cut back what looks terrible and trim...
  8. Guides: Exterior & Chassis
    So I fancy an NB....... I have filled my head with the wealth of info on here I know what issues to look out for and can't wait to experiance ownership. But I am struggling to get over the fear of buying something with bad chassis rails. Arches and sills don't trouble me as much as can be...

    Hey everyone! First of all I wish you all a rust free new year. I am super happy to be part of the community :) I have a 1998 mk2, and not too long ago I noticed that the aerial motor wouldn't stop rolling the aerial back in with they key out of the ignition, and that there was a strong fuel...

    So, I'm here upon the advice of others, and I've decided to move my build thread over here. I have copied and pasted this first paragraph from my first thread, and everything thereafter will be much more in detail hopefully. You may or may not have seen my post into the "newbie" area, so here's...
  12. Problems
    Hello, firstly I have searched to no avail, does anyone have recomendations for a good body shop for replacing wheel arches and sills. Preferably in the West Midlands after this weekends clean I fear mine will need sorting sooner rather than later. Thanks for your help in advance. Roddie

    Hi MX5 Nutzers, I'm looking for any recommendations for rust repair work for my NB 2003 MX5. Much loved, but the arches are starting to bubble and rust through so I need some good welding and spraying done to bring her back to life! Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'll try and get...

    Last weekend I was washing my pride and Joy a 2012 MX5 Venture in pearlescent white with only 17500 miles on the clock. My heart sank when I found rust around the side indicator on the drivers side. It is around the hole that it sits in. After some research this looks like quite a common...

    Hey guys, this is my third post on the forum. Bit more info about old rusty I bought for around £440! It's a 1995 Mark 1 in British Racing Green, definitely a work in progress! She looks a little worse for wear, but I hope to fix her up over the coming months and then onto some mods! As soon...

    So, as a follow up to my previous post. I am now the "kinda" proud owner of a MK1 MX5 1.8 in Green. I say kinda because I paid only £450 for it due to the biggest MX5 killer... RUST! It runs perfectly fine and it has no mechanical issues (as far as I'm aware, will check it properly later on)...
  18. Problems
    Evening All, After some advice please. I am in the process of removing the sub frames and wishbones to refurbish them, with new bushes & suspension going on at the same time. The rear end of the car is completely removed and broken down into it's component parts with the intention of getting...

    So I've had a couple of mk2s now. Great cars, but everyone knows the chassis rails love to turn to dust just before your next MOT. I've been out of the MX5 scene for a year or so, but already mk1 prices seem to be on the up and up. I'm seeing quite a few mk1s around with pretty bad...
