Hi everyone, newbie MX5 owner here!

Post by Ozzy » Thu Jan 08, 2015 5:45 pm

Hi all, i am very lucky to have inherited a 1989 eunos roadster from a family member. It has been quite neglected and needs a fair bit of work. Its spent the last 2-3 years parked up on a farm. Im hoping most of the neglect is just cosmetic, although i know there is a problem with the gearbox and theres a few parts missing off the motor.
This will be a bit of a project for me, my first project car ever :D Hopefully i can pick peoples brains for advice when needed.
I have average mechanical knowledge, mainly on older cars which is a bonus. I will be doing most of the work on the car myself with some help from my other half (specially since he has all the tools lol) I will post photos when i work out how :oops:

Post on the forums 5 times. It has a really dumb "No photos until you've posted 5 times" rule.
Once you've side stepped that, pictures ahoy.

Won't resize them, but they'll fit. The borders get bigger around them. It's a weird design.

DAMN!!!! we do not allow our users to post URLs in any form until they have posted at least 2 legitimate posts and have been with us for more than 5 days.
Looks like it will have to wait another day or 2!

I've reduced the stand down period for linking etc, the visual logins should get most of the robot spam anyway.
