There was a rather 90's TV sat nav audio system screwed to the dash. I wasn't going to be able to look the screw marks from where it was mounted. Little OCD maybe, so the dash had to come out !
Here are the 2 dash units together
Might have been a bit overkill to change the dash, just for this, but I wouldn't have been able to sleep at night !!
All back in.. You'd never know the dash had come out.
Loads of screws and fiddling. All in all took aobut 5 hours.
Next, we'll get the seats done. Currently the car has the standard velour seats. We'll change them for ones from a series 2 version. Little more sporty, the look similar to ones from an R34GTT Nissan Skyline.
Next on the list, changing the coil packs. It wasn't that the current ones were misfiring. These new ones were only a year or so old from the other stagea. So just to be on the safe side...
All in all, took just over 2 hours. 1 silly thing I didn't think about was changing the spark plugs at the same time. School boy error, so they'll have to come out again soon to change the plugs ! D'oh !
More things being added to the list, will be never ending...
Shout, shout. Let it all out. MX5's is what we're all about.
wannabe: I've got some of those with the grooves cut into them, so they look like a giant black paracetamol tablet, lol - unfortunately I can't get the trolley jack underneath the car without them, nevermind with them...
