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.

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.
