Glad you like your tool Chris!!
Not much to report for me. new front calipers and looking forward to the finished cage which is going off for chroming. Why you may ask? When i looked at the demonstrator i thought the cage would be a good detail feature when climbing in and needed highlighting as such....

Default regrets???

I have sourced 99.5℅ of the parts to complete the build, so am I regretting not asking for delivery of the kit earlier?? Well a little bit but experience tells me to stick to the plan! Itching to get going but I have two weeks booked off work from delivery of the kit and will strip the 5 the weekend before. I'll have to find some more jobs on the donor to feed my hunger.....

Hi Hammy,
It looks fantastic.
The Spinners look great

But the wheels are unfortunately too expensive for me

You should put a warning on that picture of your fantastic wheels ! opening that page early in the morning certainly gave the retinas a work out.

Hammy, have you considered window sliders for a 60's look? Lexan do a kit for the MX5 to put polycarbonate side windows in and do a slider kit as well.

Well only 1 month to go til the kit arrives. Having the rear arches modded as the cars lowered and also have all light and grill recesses pre-cut. Was gonna start the strip of the car this weekend but with this weather I think I can do without the frozen cut knuckles
