  1. Not a fan of the electrikity in cars. Recently paid $80 to have an alarm removed from my MX5. After seeing the amount of wiring that came out I would say it was the best $80 I spent.
  2. Good progress Gav. Must be hard with the car being so far from home. Is the alarm hooked up to the horns? Wondering if they're busted (you did mention the horns aren't working) and that's why you're not hearing the alarm sound.
  3. Looking good mate! I'm currently working on the suspension as well. Hope it turns out as good as yours.

    The spending will stop when you run out of money. What brand are the rear wheel bearings?
  5. Good buy mate. Now you just need to fill the rear with little ones...
  6. Congrats Andrew. Is that 3 in the family now?

    Sorry mate, sold the engine over the weekend and haven't had a chance to post here.

    Yes, turns over.

    Thanks all. Yes, a girl this time and it's getting harder to justify the two 2 seater cars we own. Although I would like to hand down a car each so it should be an easy sell to the wife. I suspect the extra pit crew will take a while to pay off so I'm expecting a slow down in productivity. The first one is a little car loving mechanic. Have already started on the second with the soothing sounds of classic Top Gear episodes while she naps.

    My pit crew is growing.

    Yes. Was toying with the idea of stripping it for fun but with all my 'spare' time that's unlikely.

    Thanks Robert and everyone else that has commented. I don't often respond to compliments but I do appreciate them. It is nice to receive encouragement and it does make the daunting task ahead that little bit easier. I just have to get something off my chest... you guys do know that I'm fumbling my way through this project right? While I've been into cars for a very long time I spent most of that time driving instead of wrenching. This project is like a dive off the 10m platform a few days after learning to swim. Starting with an insanely rusted car with lots of bits missing, incorrect or just plain unusable hasn't helped either. I'm just lucky to have a supportive network (you guys) helping so thanks to everyone that is chipping in with parts, advice and encouragement.

    Thanks! It does look round on the parts manual so that makes sense. The hex head locks in well in the pin and #21 but like I said, it's odd that I have this bolt when I'm missing the rest. Will put the bolt back as I'm sure it'll be needed elsewhere.

    Thanks Peter. I'll dig around some of my boxes over the weekend although I don't think I have that clevis. I found it odd that I have the correct bolt to be honest. Why would I have it if the car's handbrake mechanism was modified... That's why I wanted to confirm it's the right one. Looks correct to me and it fits within the pin properly - being secured by the head once positioned.

    Haha, I won't ask then. I pulled it out tonight and will be test fitting it over the weekend. I was also looking at the handbrake cables. I think mine were modified at some stage. The U shaped part on the right doesn't resemble the parts manual. I found a bolt in my miscellaneous box that resembles #20 below. Can anyone confirm if that's the correct one? I'm also missing #16 I think. Btw, I'm uploading from phone. Hope the photos aren't too large...
