Hi David, I'm in Hampshire.

I'm using a tig welder with a tiny cup however it's not enough. The sides of the tungston arc out to the metal rather than the tip.

Does your tig allow you to MMA/Stick/Arc weld, many do? I Arc welded those bits.

Whereabouts, being nosey?

Not far from you. I don't give out my exact location publicly because of my job.

3 down, too many to go!





I'll have the other front arm built tomorrow along with a jig for either the rear upper or lower arm.

My suspension brackets will finally be with me next week meaning I can finish its back end and hopefully have it sat on its wheels. Then it's engine and diff time. That's the milestone I'm aiming for. I'll slow down after that.

I'm in a conundrum again about the registration path I go down.

I have all mx5 mechanicals inc engine and box but from various sources, not one car. Will I still be able to get an age related plate?

If not I might pursue my ultimate intended incarnation and go for a duratec and a Q plate. What to do?

Help!

The way I read it is you need two major components from one car to claim an age related plate. there is a list of the acceptable components which I don't have to hand at the moment, someone else will I am sure. the components are sometimes obvious - engine, gearbox, axles - and sometimes less so - wiring loom - do you have any two components that you can relate to one car?

norton 31st May 2015 10:45 AM

Not to one car no. Balls. This means either sourcing an engine and box from one car or accepting a Q plate and going for a duratec I guess.
