Now everything is current here not much has changed went to trax a few weeks back managed to get there and back fine no problems, although a few things are in the pipeline to improve things. Seeing as temp and fuel gauges are iffy going to fit some after market ones at least then the temp will be more accurate and fuel gauge will gain a low warning light for the last gallon.

Used the car on and off since as rear visibility is dire due to the rear screen not being great think I will get a mx5 screen sewn in, also driving the car to work few weeks back temp gauge was all over the shop got to work found I had a water leak right at where the rear coolant pipes are on the bracket looks to have rotted through which is where it brings use to now!

Spent a few hours this morning removing said pipes which was a pig of a job to do which involved removing everything out the front to get to a few pipes which where not accessible from underneath, rounded heads snapped heads plenty of surface rust etc and this is the result




Going to be getting the pipes made up in alloy integrating temp sensor adapter near the front so in terms of wiring and routing everything will be very easy. Also now I know what I want long term engine wise I'll put money aside for it but get cracking on with developments of the e07a hopefully it should yield some more power and better mpg.

As the norm now more parts are en route :)

ECU rom chip kit speed limiter removed standard rev limit kept and a slightly modified map to take into account basic bolt on engine mods like manifold exhaust and funnels, rear bumper lip and a different front bumper to the usual mugen and rs-mach ones although they are both rare in themselves over here.

Hardtop soon to, went with this choice of front bumper as compared to the rest cost was reasonable and it looked decent enough

Front bumper and rear lip pretty much done both got sanded done to smooth any imperfections then more paint added and smoothed again



Coolant system all re-bled after re-fitting the coolant pipes new temp gauge is wired in and seems to be working, will strip the interior down tomorrow in preparation for some welding. Got some small bits on way from Japan before hardtop is ready just new bonnet hinges plus front mudflaps don't think I will be importing sideskirts till next year due to the cost of delivery.

Also few plans on the engine tuning side which mean things could be quite good next year :)

Cambelt snapped, so engine conversion happening much sooner than later. Got plenty to do in the mean time this will give me a chance to strip down any unwanted parts from the car, start taking the engine out and other bits that won't need needed with the new engine. Irony is the below was ordered well over a month ago and now is here, will be fitting it regardless give the interior a chance to return to normal.

Did look into an e07z turbo engine but for the cost it was cheaper to go with one of Hondas many other choices.

Unpackaged properly, mid removal and then hood plus all fittings etc removed.

Side brackets plus rear bracket bar removed the ones the bolts go into for the hood and rear screen, relatively easy job to do. Removed the front hook clip brackets to reuse on the hardtop otherwise managed to fold the rood down ready for packaging up when it goes off to Mikei after Christmas.

Mid fitting pretty happy with the quality few adjustments needed but otherwise ok side screws needed help with people pushing down to get holes to line up but otherwise rear ones easy to fit.

Last two show it fitted will need minor fiddling to get perfect otherwise after new engine is sorted in new year sideskirts plus rear spoiler to be added. Spoiler choice critical to get overall look right

New hardtop, sideskirts, front wings, plus engine rebuild bits




New hardtop fitted, sidekirts roughly in place


Stupid fast and furious spoiler held in place for a laugh way to big, will go for a standard one or a dc2 one eventually, new wheels on way engine should be fixed over next few weeks may be running again before May, otherwise will concentrate on getting bodywork better this time.

Still got a handful of things to get from Japan when money allows like alloy rad, silicone hose kit, suspension and a properly done ecu. Hopefully with the colour change I have in mind it will look quite decent
