New from Perth

Postby Gaming Scotsman » Sat Jan 03, 2015 5:19 pm

Hi everyone,

just bought myself a new car. MK 1 MX5 Import 1.8. so far loving i but only had it a day haha.

runs brilliant, little bit of rust but nothing unmanageable. broke the rear plastic window by accident :( but going to get a hard top anyway. boot seams to keep gathering condensation but i dont know why. will have to look into it.

anyhow here is how she looks as i bought her.

Plenty hard tops on Gumtree, sure I saw one Glasgow way going reasonably cheap.

The rear screen in my 5 is a glass one that's fixed.

Aye that's the prob, you could always get one wrapped. There's a guy John in Perth that has a wrapping/tint buisness, he's done a few cars for me and made a crack in job.

Rear screen is not a separate part on that hood, it will require a hood complete.
