hello all
new to the roadster scene, it's been quite a steep learning curve though


not a stranger to modifying hautomobiles though, been in the VW scene for quite some time, me and a few of my pedigree chums cobble together a blog, http://itsalmosttime.co.uk. thought i'd sign up and show you the vehicle in which i own.

anyway, the MX5 i bought on friday:



since owning it i've removed things (debricked?), made things stop squeaking, towed some reprobates, and stuck a few stickers on it:



will hope to have a few more bits done this week to make this a thread a bit more than just a few pictures of a standard MX

nice one mate


anyway, here's the car i sold to fund the mx:




it was lacking that grin factor that comes in abundance in my latest purchase, i grew up driving mk2 escorts which are are pretty similar in terms of handling and power delivery, i've still got one tucked away somewhere
:




as for the mx i've a few bits coming this week, a rollover hoop, new rear lights and some BBS RM's are in the pipeline (15x9), which i won't fit before i lower it, i promise

just to restore the balance and keep it roughly on topic here's some more pictures from the day i collected it:

i'm in the last few weeks of my degree (BEng Mech) so i've kinda put a personal block on not doing anything daft to it for the next 2 months or so, but after then i want to build a full cage for it, put it on throttle bodies like my escort and get it sitting real pretty. been searching and reading on here for about the last week and it's inspired me to do a lot of things
the escort has taken me 4 years to get in that condition so i wouldn't hold your breath

3 things done this evening, sorry if they're not that groundbreaking, gotta start somewhere i spose


red rear reflectors / removed the amber out of the rear lights and removed those godaweful mudflap things



i've tried searching with no avail, i've some harnesses and an RX7 seat kicking about that would make a great addition, i was just wondering if the standard 1.8 brace bar can be used as a harness bar?
