  1. those window cables are a bugger to fit - I would recommend just replacing the whole mechanism if you can find a good used one. there is an aftermarket 'worm drive' type available which is a much better design but I'm not sure where to buy one - my old v-spec had them fitted, the windows were much quicker and smoother to use. good luck

    Sod that, just go on your own - I got fed up of taking unappreciative partners to gigs so started going on my own - had much more fun, drank a load of beer, jumped around down at the front and sang myself hoarse who are you planning to see ?
  3. I promise I didn't choose the house just because of the garage well, not just for the garage, the house is nice too ! it's needing a bit of work on the electrics - the feed from the house is live at one end but not at the other - the cable runs under the patio which is small paving stones, hopefully not too much of a pain to lift and run a new cable. for now, an extension cord out the window was enough to get the lights working
  4. I did the rocker cover and aux belts on mine fairly recently so took a chance on reusing them, no leaks so far so I think I got away with it
  5. yep, got the tool (bought it years ago from junkyarddog when he was involved in mx5nutz) - pm me your address and I'll bung it in the post - mine is also a mk1 1.8 which I was booting off a roundabout when it went ping, a quick tow home from the rac and a new belt fitted a couple of days later and it's running good as new, maybe even better as the old belt was pretty worn, might have been slightly out of timing before. @Tenmil Socket I bought the kit off mx5parts, worked out much cheaper than europarts https://www.mx5parts.co.uk/camshaft-timing-belt-budget-mk1-25-p-2758.html if you've not used them before, sign up for the newsletter before you order and you should get a 10% off code
  6. I suspect I may be your new neighbour or close by anyway - netherton close, up waldridge way

  14. Definitely interested, or may have a go at building my own - there's a couple of kits based on mx5 mechanicals that could be fun
