Love this pic from john @moca2cv - check the little tache from condensation.
And a recent engine-bay photo
YEY nice shots of it on 6ULs.
Latest shot on some DTCs. Different.
Todo: some rear suspension bracing, and a turbo brace to relieve the manifold.
Took her to the body shop this monday - front bumper was repainted last year but the paint reacted badly within a week or two and just got worse and worse over a few months. Needs the black sill line redoing too. Thankfully this is being done for free (well, cost of the paint).
Shout, shout. Let it all out. MX5's is what we're all about.
wannabe: I didn't watch it live but saw some of the highlights - one crash saw a Lotus Elite(?) crashed into and the front end ripped off on the tyre wall, with a 250GTO also smashed up IIRC! Expensive hobby... lol

atlex: After 20 years (with me, but it's 30+ years o) my Teng Socket Set has at last suffered a cracked socket, 14mm, after I used it with an impact wrench - Out of some sense of brand loyalty I've ordered a replacement socket... and yes I have some impact ones.
