David's Build Thread
Hello guys, Just a quick one to let you know I have started my build today. I collected my completed MX5 based chassis and wishbone pack from Saturn today and I am really pleased with it. A couple of hours spent in the garage using the vice to push the suspension bushes in and i am well under way!!. I have already gathered together a selection of mx5 bits over the last few months whilst I was waiting for the MX5 variant to be launched. I will initially put in a 1.6 engine and have a limited slip diff as well.

I have tried to upload some pictures but I keep getting an error message saying the file size is too big! Once I have worked this out I will post the images.

Good luck :)

and have fun.

Upload the photos to something like photobucket, you can then link to them rather than uploading them to the forum.

Good luck with your build David, you,ll soon have it at the rolling stage & sitting in it going "brum brum" :D

Ahh...so it was your chassis I was poking* about when I was up at Saturn last weekend :D It's very nicely made.

If you're collecting bits off different MX5s, make sure that the driveshafts and prop match your diff - they're different between the 1.6s and the 1.8s.

*Oi you - at the back there! Stop sniggering! :D

Thanks for the motivating messages. I have been getting all my mx5 parts from 1 source. Its a company that race mx5's so they have been giving me a few tips for further down the line!

You may have to share that source of parts with me lol

AK Automotive in Rowlands Gill. He sells a lot of stuff through ebay and is a big supplier to MNR for their MX5 variant.

I have now added a Flikr link so I can upload photos!!!

you should be able to post the picture directly on the forum, should be some options under the share menu at the top of each picture.
