My first pics

Postby steve172 » Tue May 04, 2010 5:59 pm

Hi all, now I've had my MX5 a few days, thought I'd take my first few photos of her and post them up. Still needing a lot of work done. As you can see from the pics, the front offside is sitting low, so some new springs will go on the front. Also ordered some new front discs and pads as the previous owner made a right mess when they were fitted, also need a rear nearside wheel bearing and some new rubber all round. Gearbox oil was ridiculously low to almost empty so replaced that yesterday and topped the engine oil up as that was also low. Keeping my eye on this as I'm not sure whether it is burning oil or if it has just not been filled right up. Will probably think of more things to do as the week goes by. I've also been offered a set of Sparco bucket seats and harnesses.

Photo time!!

Your car looks good Steve. Will be even better once all your jobs are done on it.
Hope to see it on one of our runs soon.

I should have it ready for the Argyll run :) Will try get it machine polished before then too.

Re the springs, are they replacement springs for the Bilstein dampers? As far as I am aware, the Bilstein dampers take different springs to normal dampers.
