Reintroduction

Hello,

I was briefly an MX5 owner/user until my wifes need was greater and she started using or that should be abusing the car for commuting and generally as a work horse, now that she has a eurobox to runaround with the 5 has returned to me in a bit of a state ( don't shoot me down yet for the neglect, I plan to restore). It'll cost a bit from the quotes I've had but its time for me to enjoy it now, so I'm hoping to get it completed in time for any summer we might get. Looking forward to joining up and getting some ideas on bringing it back to life.

I'm in Johnstone., Renfrewshire.

Its bodywork in the usual areas, brakes, good tune up, alignment, new wheels or refurb them, exhaust. Did a bit of a bodge on the arches when I first got it but going to do it properly now. Budgeting at about £1200 to £1350 (hopefully)

I'll have quite a few questions for the tech section.

Martin, I'm in Johnstone too. Not sure if I've seen you about, there are quite a few 5's here or maybe just passing through

Cheers all, I'm already hammering the tech section now I've been able to get in amongst it again. Still using it up until the MOT expires then its into a body shop. Got a good run tomorrow up to Knockhill for a single seat driving experience I got for birthday. If I get the bug I might take the five around it when I've got it sorted.
