Its been a while (7 years), my mx250 has been tucked away for the last 5 years, during the start of the covid apocalypse, I decided to get it back on the road.

Will get some pics uploaded in the next few days.

The bodywork has faired really well, no signs of corrosion on the underside, probably due to the fresh waxoyl I pumped in before it went into the garage.

Needed a new fuel pump to get it running again, aircon still works!

Joking aside it has been a few weeks of graft to get it this far, filling the bonnet scoops was a fair bit of effort, I think I prefer it not looking so 250gto at the front, the eunos badge on the bonnet isn't fitted, but I probably will be using it

So 99% of the paint is finished, all in I've done about 6l of paint, 3-4 coats, wet sanded between each coat will still need wet sanding/polishing to get rid of some orange peel but on the whole I'm happy with the colour choice
