Add Seats, add bracing (rarely have this on, as I'm working on it too much). Also, those fresh new wheels I told you about.

Fixed the seat mounts. Highly recommend it. Skidnation mounts dó have slots, all the others don't. As you can see, it's 2mm off center.

Are we leaking oil yet? We're leaking oil. (Current problem, hope it's not the pump/pan. Did the front main, but not the cam seals.)

Haha, same cars as me! Loving both mate, and love the mods on the mx5! cracking little cars the mk1 eh! 8-)

 

Here's my two...

DD my main car (was previously leading a nice retired life as a show car until I decided to put her back on the road full time)

Hows the turbo holding up? These mk1's give proper giggles with a turbo fitted eh! Have seen videos of them but never been in a turbo'd mk1 yet.

The turbo has been an absolute blast! I'm currently in the process of adding to the fuel system with an FPR (and redoing some of the venting bits that make the cabin smell like fuel), adding Frame Rails, adding Frog arms and remapping the ECU.

I got in my new brake caliper today, so that's going in this weekend. After that, I'll start rebuilding the front end. I also trimmed and re-mounted the plastic shroud in the bumper. Happy days!

Before that, I was zooming at 1.1bar / 16psi. She's a beaut, and if I'm to believe the Virtual Dyno, I should be hitting just under 200whp. Keep in mind, this is on the 90hp cams, so there's more area under the graph.
I think 240~300hp is about as much as you would ever want in this chassis. It's very capable in the turns, and now the engine kind of keeps up with that. I'm low-key afraid for my transmission, and the clutch is slipping all day, but I'm laughing all the way home and on tour. Great Turbo noises!

I'm also leaking oil again, so I guess I'll have to do the oil pump sometime next year. As well as fix a rusty sill.

I'm also chasing some electrical gremlins, so I've tied the gauges into Sensor Ground instead of chassis ground. I'm curious if that will solve my issues with the AFR gauge swinging fairly wildly. If not, it's probably an exhaust leak somewhere before the lambda.
 

Still plenty of money to be lost on this car, but it's worth every penny and every drop of sweat and blood.

Wish i could see this but I take it the images are on your Google drive? Keeps asking me to sign into Google, but even when I use my sign in it won't show the photos mate. Sounds like you've been mega busy with her!! Looking forward to seeing what you've done. I've not done anything at all to Mindy lately, too wet/cold outside and her MOT is now expired so will be waiting till better weather arrives before getting her booked in for it. Don't think I'll need to do anything to her (fingers crossed as she was driving perfect up until the mot expired at start of December.) so hoping by mot time my new garage will be built!

The images come from Google Photos indeed. I'm reuploading them now.

In the meantime, I've discovered that my oil leak is probably a PCV system failure. So I'm reworking that in a hope to remedy it. Missing parts in the brake caliper package made it that I only just now have everything to do the job. Luckily the weather is improving, so working in the garage isn't as frigid anymore.


Lots of oil on the Crankcase Ventilation.

IMG_20210119_164231.jpg.88698b3405512198e84cb81cb86f2fe4.jpg

I'll have to do the Fuel Pressure Regulator soon too, as it seems that whole system is weeping fuel fumes. No Bueno. Waiting for some hoses and parts for that.


And now the pictures:

Nice to see some photos mate. To be fair, rust wise I've seen a lot worse than that so for a 97 she's not too bad. Liking those braces, be really interesting to see what difference they make once she's on the road. Some nice mods going on there that I've not seen on the mx5's before. 8-)

Also think the rust on the floor pans probably points to a possible roof leak in the past, so be well worth checking all the seals around the roof to see if they need replacing. Mine doesn't leak, but if I point a pressure washer directly at the top of the passenger door window, there is a little bit gets past the seal right in the middle. Going to replace all mine soon.
