The other half has been talking about getting a convertible for the Summer (seems to be a couple of days during the year and that’s it). I went with them to look at a Mk1 MX5 which was advertised on GumTree.
The Car is mechanically sound but it needs some attention on the body work. But as this was her sister’s first car, they didn’t want anything too mint cos no doubt there will be a few dings and scratches along the way.
To help hide some of the bad paint,i suggested doing a mirror copy of her daily,her BMW E36. Luckily we had some left over vinyl and was just enough to do the MX5. Needless to say,it could do with a few more but for now I think it looks pretty awesome!
She’s got a few plans for it including wheels,coilovers and possibly an exhaust.
