Post subject:  Hoodedreeper's MX5 The Purple Monster

You'll probably know I had engine fire in my White MX5 Turbo. Currently stripping it down and theres just too much to replace. Not as simple as putting another engine in,every hose has been damaged aswell as the wiring loom. It may have been cost effective to change everything,but having a front and rear fire aswell as an impact both sides,it was time to start fresh.

I hunted locally for a clean Mk1 shell,couldnt find any until someone from MX5 Nutz mentioned he had a mint shell possibly for sale. So with a few phone calls later we had agreed on a deal,and today I took delivery of it.

The car was purchased in Japan,over there it had thousands of pounds spent on it including a highly tuned engine on carbs,Garage Vary body kit,Garage Vary bonnet,centre shotgun exhaust,roll cage and much more! I've been told it was used as a Touge Car while over there.

While it was over there it had a respray (originally Red,arent they all!) in a Honda midnight purple (I've got the colour code wrote down somewhere). The inside has been stripped and the floor and behind the seats have been painted the same colour).

The car was imported to the UK in 2007,and has covered hardly any miles in that time. I believe the shell has only covered 40k and you can certainly see that! Theres not a single spot of rust on her!

The car got sold earlier this year and was stripped and put back to standard form. The car had a Veilside front bumper,which got removed and a stock bumper was refitted,hence why its a different colour,same goes with the bonnet. The engine was removed and a stock 1.6 long nose engine was put in its place.

Plans so far is to fit the HSD coilovers and the carbon fibre panels and who knows from there on!

Post subject:  Re: Hoodedreeper's MX5 The Purple Monster

So it seems the bad luck at started with the Purple Monster. Got woken up at 7:40am this morning by my neighbor opposite. He came to tell me he had reversed out of his drive and hit the car. He reverses out of the drive every single morning,how could he not see a car parked the opposite side of the road!

Got some repair quotes and gave them to him,just waiting on getting the money :/

I know the feeling. You just don't seem to be having much luck with the Mazda's...... MGF's are quite cheap, though ;) *ducks verbal abuse*

Spoke to my Neighbour and he said it'd be cheaper for him to pay his £50 excess and go through insurance :( Been on the phone to both insurance companies,both have the repair quotes and i'm just waiting for it to be confirmed with the Body Shop and I can get it booked it in :)

In the mean time I've done a few bits and pieces.

Replaced the front disc and pads as when coming to a stop there was a grinding noise,fingers crossed this will sort it. Just got the rears to fit.

Fitted the TR Lane Cage last Sunday,and painted it today







MX5OC Region Sticker

Post subject:  Re: Hoodedreeper's MX5 The Purple Monster

Received confirmation from the Insurance Companies and Body Shop about the repair,and the car is booked in for Monday 21st October.

Got the cage finished and peeled off the stickers/masking tape





Jass Performance Stainless Blank & Cup Holder (the car has manual windows,so needed a blank to cover where the switches would usually be)





Jass Performance Stealth TSIs



Stainless 370mm Decat



Fujitsubo (Jasma) Stainless 4-1 Manifold







Last Sunday i attended an event at Snetterton organized by the Police to help promote safer driving. They used the 100 circuit as a Slalom and set a time of 2:22 in an Audi A4.So i thought i'd give it a go.

I've never done anything like this (let alone be on a track). I came 3rd overall with a time of 2:17! Not bad considering the car is stock except the backbox and coilovers!

Glad the insurance have sorted you out with a date for the bodyshop as she is a fine looking monster :chill

The home made cup hold rocks as well as your slalom track time

I'm not trying to out do the White one,cos that was epic on huge proportions. This will be a different styling route. Its still really early days yet :)

Post subject:  Re: Hoodedreeper's MX5 The Purple Monster

why didn't you use the old wheels?

I decided if I give up on the Roadster Id get a mk1 mx5 and slam it on steelies like you did. Sorry but it was awesome and all other mx5s I've seen on the road look crap stock.
