    Polycarbonate windows

    For the MB, search for the Rover MG ZS window kits, there are plenty about. Plastic4Performance made the kit for my Aerodeck so can do the MB side windows, not sure they carry the rear screen (if you want that as well). You have to retain the rear door quarter lights to secure the rear windows.

    Mindy's mini-me!

    So, as I've been ill recently (had a heart attack while working in the garage) I'm not allowed to work on my cars until I recover. Well, decided to build the suspension on the MX5 (aka Mindy), fit the brake discs and calipers, oh and respray the car! Not the real one of course! I was lucky to get two identical models of the MX5 for my Christmas (one from Gayle and the other from my eldest stepdaughter Jacklyn and her husband Marc) so decided to chill out and build one of them. Model is 1/24 scale by Tamiya Got some parts painted prior to building. Brake discs with red calipers, exhaust, shocks with red springs (slight deviation from the instructions but just my preference). Also did front and rear wishbones, front rear subframes and all other parts. Detailed the underbody tub, so exhaust, petrol tank , bottom of engine etc all done. Rear suspension etc all ready to build Front suspension all built and added to tub. Rear all built and ready to fit Interior painted and put together. Really proud of my wee wood look gear knob! Mixed various colours to try and get the right look! The body required sanding down with fine wet and dry as there were a lot of casting marks that I wasn't happy with. Decided to buy proper "Mazda Classic red" paint from Halfords (part of my ocd thingy!) Resprayed the body, but not too happy with the finish so that will be getting done again. Even though I used paint prep wipes, and a plastic primer, the paint seems to have reacted with the plastic so truned out pants (well, in my opinion anyways!) so deffo redoing that. Final pics are of the completed model. When I build the second one, I'm going to use a different glue too as the one I have is also crap, quite stringy. Anyway, totally enjoyed building this, really theraputic. Looking forward to the second one! Oh, I haven't put any of the number plate decals on as I'm making my own (which will be same as Mindys!)

    My mb6

    Wow! DD my Aerodeck is 20 yrs old this year, still drives as good as new. Are you Adeel that used to go to the HTUK meets back in the day? If so met you at one of them, and yours was the first VTiS I'd seen or ever been in!! You took me and my mate for a spin in it, was amazingly quick. Think you had changed the ecu for the integra SiR one? Get some photos up mate, would love to see the car!!

    My mb6

    My mb 6. Will. Be 19yrs old in April Currently giving it a good clean and polish over. I will post pics once finished
  9. Thats what I think, I really want an Mb6 one day and know it won't be cheap with how rare they're becoming, but that's just crazy money. At least it isn't being broken haha.
  10. Yeah mate, all have the lip as standard, not having it wasnt an option. So either its had a new front bumper or the lip has been damaged. Either way, think it needs investigating by any prospective new owner! I too have seen it going up for sale before. First thing I do now with any car......check the MOT history. I assume the owner would probably give the reg over the phone but I like to have the option of checking it first before contacting the seller. And I think you're bang on, £3500 is what it is worth tops, although I think any mb6 will struggle to sell at even 3 grand. Six and a half is just total dreaming lol Even though they are rare now, I still cough and laugh when I see Civic Jordan's being advertised at 7 or 8 grand! It's like "what, seriously??" And that's with sometimes over 100K on the clock.
  11. We're prevented from checking out it's MOT history so I wouldn't even consider the car @ £3,500......tis a beauty though.
  12. However just noticed, front lip is missing? Didn't all MB6's leave the factory with a front lip? Maybe a story behind that if so..

    Polycarbonate windows

    Honestly can't remember now.there off the shelf for eg and ek. Doubt it for m's. Will probably be best getting some made or making them yourself.

    Polycarbonate windows

    Yes, there have also been a couple of mb's/MC's that were built as track cars that had them if memory serves me correctly. Not sure which ones or where you'll get it but I'm sure Jake will be along shortly with the info.
  15. Good shout Simon, probably cheaper to replace the complete dizzy than it is just to buy the ignitor thingy. Infact, if the ignitor is worn out, chances are the rest of the dizzy would be too.
  16. If it does turn out to be the dizzy, I got a reconditioned one from ignitioncarparts.com about 6 or more years ago and it's still going strong.

    @KiNK43 got some for his EG I seem to remember.
  18. Thats what Civic5 was all about right from the start mate, and what makes us a bit different to most other car forums/FB groups. Always someone happy to help here. If the EM light didn't come on, then possibly not the ignitor then (which is lucky as that part was I think £300 from Honda last time I got one which was around 6, maybe 7 years ago). Not even sure Honda still stock them and the aftermarket ones fail big time. I bought two, both left me stranded byt the side of the road within 1 week of driving, hence had to bite the bullet and buy genuine Honda part. But as said, if the EML doesn't come on during the fault, then that should rule that out. Dodged a bullet there! lol

    Polycarbonate windows

    Hi guys I know this has probably been asked before l somewhere but where would I get the polycarbonate or such like for my mb would like the drivers and passengers windows to have the sliders in them thanks
  20. Seen this a few times, price was well over £7K to start with! Does look really mint though, I'd love one that still feels new despite being 20 years old.
  21. Crikey! That's one box fresh mb6! Barely ran in. Six and a half is a lot, but if it's a good as it seems.... Still probably too steep though. I wonder if the iabs have ever opened
  22. Shame it's not an aerodeck I'd like to see what it's like underneath thought. Could still be bad, all depends where it's been stored all it's life
  23. Thanks for all the kind words guys, you are a caring bunch on here which is a refreshing change =) Well plans scuppered for another day, the pipe from the power steering top up tank just sprung a leak yesterday, so the funds have been diverted to that 1st, also a bush at the back needs replacing, can't grumble the good old girl never lets me down mechanically & luckily I also have the 1.5 aerodeck as an emergency back up. I had been suggested I replace the dizzy, but had a sneaking suspicion it was not that, so the O2 sensor will get done 1st,if the problem persists it'll be the dizy thats next on the cards. Not got the engine management light coming on when I get the problem BTW. Bloody hell a heart attack just last week,I hope you are taking it easy Dave. I'd not want a new car myself TBH Gel, I would not change the VTI for anything even if I had money to throw at vehicles endlessly, if that were the case I'd get this on stripped to the bear bones & rebuilt from scratch, well maybe with the addition of a P30 & a little toying with the power lol, but I have a bike if I feel like going a little crazy, not that I do that often now I'm getting on a bit. Will get this bush & power steering pipe sorted & then the o2 sensor will be getting sorted. I'll report back when done to confirm if it's sorted the issue.
  24. Browsing ebay and found this. Looks amazing condition with only 18.000 miles on the clock, two owners from new. Very hard to find one like this, but don't think I could justify.........£6495 for an MB6! Still, would love to own this. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Honda-Civic-1-8-VTI-Very-Low-Mileage-ONLY-18K-Service-History-Lot-of-paperwork/233074530457?hash=item3644531899:g:VQUAAOSwTY9buQTO:rk:4:pf:0 Pic of the car
  25. No need to apologize mate, we've all been there (me included! Had a heart attack last week!) so health takes priority over everything. Hope you get it sorted soon, but if it turns out not to be the 02 sensor it could well be the ignitor in the distributor. Do you get the engine management light coming on when the fault happens?
