My first Eunos.

Postby monikieman » Thu Apr 01, 2010 10:06 pm

well it seems that I managed to get the photos on.

Here is my 1991 Eunos 1.6 (Mr Miyagi) well we had to give him a name! All my other cars were girls and 'old Bess' wasn't an option apparently.

I have managed to de-tango the car and fit new mirrors, leather gear lever and handbrake gaitor from eBay.

Still to do is sort the suspension (still bottoming out at the rear), rocker cover gasket, shift boots (almost disintegrated) and small hole behind the plastic water shield in rear arch. Then perhaps in the warmer weather a coat of stone chip underneath.

hoping to catch up with some folks on a run now that I have a roof. The rear screen had been fixed just before I got the car and fell out the day after. Sorted now.

If you are going to get shocks for the rear to stop bottoming out, fit Mk2 assemblies complete with Mk2 top caps That gives an extra 40mm or so of wheel travel
Mk3 2.0 sport & Mk1 California 217/300

Hi ! that bird feeder next to your car is asking for trouble !! and wait till the seagulls see that shiny black roof !!
What about a run out to show off your new baby?

The first bird near the car gets it.....

A run sounds great. Going out today with the roof down as it's sunny (need to be quick)

I'll drop you a PM and see if we can sort something out.

Cheers

Thanks Richard. That's what i've found from reading the forums etc. Definately Mk2 top mounts and assembly but just need to deside which and see how much cash I have!

Cheers
