So today went out and bought this little beaut for a reasonable price as the MX5 is just way to much to run with the job I've got now so looking to repair this to its former glory hopefully :)

So Today fitted a new coil and the bloody thing still didn't start but did get a few other bits done.
Gave it a hoover:


And took off all the old paint on the air intake cover and painted it. :)

Ah, the old Mk2. I loved my one. Keep an eye on the Temp. Sender housing: If it's like my one it'll be plastic and may start leaking.

That wasn't what killed it: When I went to change the housing one of the bolts snapped in the head. If you suspect a leak fix it early!!

Turns out it was the previous owners shoddy wire stripping and crimping skills that stopped the car from starting.....

Today I decided to "de-hedgehog" the intake manifold and I must say it seems a little more sprightly
