Hey!

Postby Kev-ush » Thu Mar 15, 2007 11:56 pm

Hi, I've just join this forum, been on the mx5oc forum for a coulpe of days now. Also joined the mx5oc club today. I stay in Inverurie where I think I seen a few of you lot driving about (white mx, british racing green mx with a body kit and a silver mx).

I bought my first mx (Eunos) a couple of months ago. It is a cat C damaged repairable I bought from Overton Dismantlers that has had a light rear shunt. The last owner had done a bit of modifying but none of it is to my taste so the body kit will be coming off and replaced with the standard bumpers. My plan for it is to get it back on the road before the summer so I can have a bit of time driving it before it gets taken back off the road to get seam welded and turned into a road legal track day weapon. I've already been breaking the bank by buying bits for it I don't need just yet...so far I've fitted a hard dog twin diagonal roll bar, a set of low profile headlamps (still having problems fitting the headlamp covers)and I've got a set harnesses waiting to go in a soon as the bucket seats arrive. Also managed to find a set of carbon fibre door cards which will hopefully be arriving soon. Hopefully it will be ready to go to the body shop soon so it can get its VIC test and MOT'd. I will just be getting the damaged sorted but not painted...a full respray will be done after the seam welding gets done.

I'll post some pictures up when I get back from offshore.

Hello

Welcome to the club.

I'm looking forward to the pics.

You're a brave man taking on a resto job like that was it a write off?

Thanks for the welcome.

It wasn't a total loss write off. I'm going to get the rear panel replaced even though the guy at the body shop thinks it can be sorted. The diff casing was also broken but I've replaced that already. The only other damage is on the body kit which I'm going to replace with a standard kit...can't see a good Eunos go to was waste :D

Its not much to look at just now but I will be when its done. When it does get on the road it will be all different colours until its respray. It use to be red but someone resprayed it a goldy silver colour but I think I'm going back to red, although I've always wanted a white Eunos :?

Red does look good 8) but it's a bit common up here :wink: :lol:

Silver Stone is much more sophisticated. :P

Yeah I did notice there were a few folk from Inverurie on here. Looks like we'll be able to branch off and have an MX5 owners club of Inverurie soon :lol:

I'm due back home on the 21st provided there are no more delays out here. So if I am back I'll try and see if I can make it. Only thing is I won't be coming up in the Mazda...it'll be a few more weeks till its back on the road.

I was going to go for a Lexus red which is a bit brighter. I don't mind the colour that is on it that much but I am worried about getting a good colour match because its not the cars original colour

I'll be doing everything apart from replacing the rear pannel (don't have the time to do it myself) and respray. Although I'm still waiting on word to see if I'm getting my new house with a nice big double garage.

Thanks :D ...and just the sort of person I need to speak to (someone with a supercharger).

I was going to buy a turbo kit for mine but I've just ordered a 4-2-1 manifold and a IL exhaust so I'll be going for the supercharger now instead...they any good?
