SO as some of you might know i was very lucky to have the opportunity to buy an MX5. The car has seen better days, it has got fiberglass bolt on flares, a 2 1.4 stainless steel cat back exhaust system, D2 adjustable coilovers. The paint is fairly rat ssshhiiitttt and it has a small dint in the rear left quarter. In the next few weeks Iíll be fixing up those little things, trying my luck and panel beating, installing my stereo and speakers.

UPDATE

so i have throw on some new tail lights, panel beaten the dent out as much as i can, put on my White wheels, removed the vender flares.






After pulling apart the car to check everything out i found heaps a little things that where wrong with it.. the main this was the rubber bush that goes over the shifter. BOTH the body boot and the gearbox boot where hmmm lets say not there..

I thought you must have brought a MX5 when you asked the question of BP into B6 car.

I remember seeing this car a while back, wasn't interested in the body was it was gonna be a donor car for the exocet.
