rattler - Hi Dave, sorry I forgot to mention what a great job you did on your car seat.

Looking forward to seeing more photos.

Good luck, Paul.

If you are going to Exeter, check out the Tribute stand to see what you could do with your mx5

hi i think i will have the same problem,as i want to use 15inch wheels.
can i ask you does it effect the position of the body if you moved the front bulkhead back by 20mm?do you have to move the body back the same?
i think this seems the best solution?

thanks ikon246

I moved my bulkhead back 20mm by redrilling the chassis bolt holes. I had to extend the holes in the frame to align with the old door mounting nuts but everything else just fitted up as normal. Hope that helps.

Looking good Dave.

A minor mod I did on the frame was to add in a couple of spacers on the front body mounts to help miss the bonnet lip. I also put in some support at the front - primarily as I am going to mount my gauges in a centre console so I wanted some more room so they don't hit the frame....
