By the way, you can take out the plastic foot rear to the left of the clutch for a bit more leg room.
Then google foamectomy and really get carried away. There’s more room in mine than the bloody Volvo.

This is true, have a sit in the passenger seat and see what a difference there is.

Tell drunk moog to keep an eye out for a little gadget called the cg-lock, it fastens onto the seatbelt clip and locks the seatbelt tight, a budget alternative to fitting a harness. Works well combined with the foamectomied seat.

Good work with the slimline door handles, I did the same but with guitar amp / speaker handles in mine, I couldn't get the doors to shut with the buckets fitted.

Can I just reccommend PH Sportscars, 944 & MX5 breakers just a couple of miles away from me.
The internet sometimes says they are crap, but I don't have a bad word to say about them.
(He keeps lending me MX5's as courtesy cars!).
01332 799298 Paul or Mike.

 

 

A quick update on this;

 

Went looking for Porsche bits the other day and there are barely any left, but I have never seen so many MX-5's in various states of repair.

The company name has changed to PM Sportscars and the telephone number to 01332 854760. It's really just Mike now.

 

The place next door, a bloke called Mark, breaks Corrado's & next door but one plays with Subaru's.

It's still insured so other vehicle cover should be fine for now. No longer insured from 19th I think.

My excuse is a 305 van, so stuff like that is unknown to me and is therefore confusing and posh.
