Got this last monday (12th)

Drove down to Bradford, swapped me 323f sport for it...drove home, didnt miss a beat.










Still trying to dig for information on it...all i can find so far is;
1991 mk1 Eunos mx5
1.6
standard engine
some crhome "bling" on interior
New Momo steering wheel, gear Knobb and pedals
Duno what kidna of alloys painted in white

Few plans are;
remove "dodge" stripes.
change alloys
remove everything white and replace with yellow me thinks...
New exhaust
more speakers (I heart ICE)
try hide my Ipod wire a bit better

Already done since i owned it is;
upgraded front speakers to Alpine SXE 1725S
ordered a front splitter of ebay...

thanks all...comments?

OH what are those little cover like things i have seen on the side lights? they look cool....

NICE. id go along with removing the side stripes,but like the centre stripes,but thats a personal choice.def remove stuck on badges on sideskirts,and get a correct one for the front bumper..id lose the steering wheeel too..

and wheels look like standard daisies sprayed white.

i think blue goes better with white than yellow... but its all down to personal taste

i like blue car with white wheels and bits, not sure with white daisy but white wheels will look good

What badges am i looking for here then??

i kinda like them wee badges on the side skirts tbh and the stripes are growing on me...but i have contacted my painter about a freshen up of the paint...without the stripes...

Since owning it i have;
changed the speakers to Alpine SXE-1725S
FULL service
new rear tyres

Ordered a bunch of parts whcih haven't arrived yet...

started to upgrade my headrest speakers
Before


As it sits the now



Bit of an update...was asked to take pictures for a mate who done the exhaust for his garage work



Brace bar came today, so tonight i will be rubbing it down and prepping it for hammeriting...


today before tea i done some cam cover painting
2coats of primer
Couple of imperfections (1st time painting with rattle can that really matters)




then i rubbed it down and sprayed it a few more times 5 or 6.th coat or primer



Next stage will be to buy more paint (not primer lol) and finishing it off...and hope my girlfriends art, teady hands can do the indent writing areas lol
