To be able to get an age related number plate I believe you need the V5 of the donor vehicle.

All my donor parts came from one vehicle, but because it was an insurance write off the V5 had been surrendered.

I ended up with a Q plate, but like you say visual only emissions come MOT time.

Thank you for the assistance chaps.

I am going to go for an age related plate. I'm going to get the complete running mx5 engine from a local car being broken. I can have copies of the v5 and this is the same car I got my brakes and other bits from which should get me over the points threshold. If it fails then, I tried my best and will focus on the benefits of the Q plate. The duratec can wait as Mrs M pointed out I'm going to be a dad in a few months which won't mix with expensive and time consuming duratec installs!

Needs to be original V5.
If car is already registered as scrap, I think you will have problems.

It's registration hasn't changed but will in the future once it's been broken up.

I built my chassis some 6 years ago maybe longer then it was getting in the way of starting a family. So I ended up stopping my build for a while until I could afford it again and that took until last year when I pulled my chassis back out a little over a year ago. But your build is getting on with a good start

Happy building

I know Polo radiators have been fitted on both Sierra and MX5 based Haynes Roadster with no problem.

Another popular alternative is the Mercedes 190 radiator. It is thick, compact, and perfectly fits vertically under the nose cone. That is the one I use, as wall as many other builders, and with my Sierra 2.0i DOHC, there is absolutely no overheating problems, it does the job perfectly. I definitely advise this radiator.

Good luck with your build

Ah the 190 rad sounds cool(!). I'll see about tracking one down and giving it a go. Thanks guys.

Matt, could I ask who made your petrol tank please? I'd like to use the mx5 sender unit like yours.
