A quick introduction, Atlex linked my build thread about 18 months ago from roadster.net, I planned for a while to get an updated build thread for the car here, well I am finally here....
The car is a MK1 RS Limited, i purchased in 2016, initially just for the seats to go in the track car, I bought it without actually seeing it... once I got it home it was a fair bit better than i first thought...
And well i used it on the road for about a week before dry storing it and then taking it completely apart, looking back now it was a slight strange way to tackle such a project, and did loose momentum for a number of reason over the last 4 years or so, the most recent one being that of a build of a BRSCC race car over the winter of 2017/18 starting with a standard road car MK1 1600 and this took a fair bit of time, and now competing in the MK1 Championship.
Then more recently when there was some spare time over winter I had a shed built in the back garden as a place to rebuilt this RS. Well November 2018 it all kicked off again, then after getting engaged in March, I now plan to use it as a wedding car this July, so as you can imagine things need to speed up fairly quickly...
Apologies if any of you guys have seen this on other forums or my facebook page, if so hit back now...lol
Shout, shout. Let it all out. MX5's is what we're all about.

JamesMk3: I'll probably just go in public parking (for the first time in about 4 years!). At least then I can bail if the weather is crap. Not too sure o work commitments yet either. V. busy for the foreseeable future.
