I've just been to toolstation for some self tappers to tidy inside the boot up amongst other things. 

I've noticed it's very flat below 2.5 to 3k revs then in takes off. Not all the time though strangely. I wonder if stale fuel could be causing it.

The gearbox is making some awful noise on the overun as well.

Gearbox has always made that noise since I had the clutch changed, I did mention it. I think the receipt for the clutch is in there somewhere, was done around 10k miles ago.

Flat spot? Probably just needs an Italian tune up, it hasn’t been driven in well over a year. 

Im enjoying the updates, good to see it getting some love.

The wiring for the ashtray light had melted at some point. I'm 90% sure this is why the side light fuse keeps popping.
It's all bacl together now and it hasn't really make a difference, although I do know it's all good swich wise now. They're quick enough now anyway.7c76282302dd9d45a66fd7dc49dc1d4e.jpg5c89472b324cb4911a083bab417eee53.jpg

I have some problems with the lights before I stick it in for an mot. Side lights don't work.
When you put high beam on, one light, lights and the other goes out.
No lights at all on the rear.
Weather dependant, I'll crack on with it tomorrow.

the first place I would be looking is the fuse box in the drivers footwell, I'm sure there one labelled curiously as "room" that affects various lights, affects the dash lights too, I think.

Yup. Very early car indeed.

Well played, the early ones are the best IMO, enjoy!

Earlier the better! At all the MX5 meets I go to (Back when such things were allowed) I am always happy that mine was often the earliest there.

They get filled with carbon deposits and sooty crap, so they're really high resistance when switched on

Maybe this is why my windows are so crap. Thanks for sharing this! 
 

To be honest I’ve barely thought about my MX5 during lockdown and it is festering badly in the corner... 

This thread Is spurring me on to get it out again.

I was going to go out and do some more fettling after some cheese and crackers. When I opened the fridge I found half a can of Budvar from last night.
The weathers on the turn anyway.
I'm easily led unfortunately.a12456e5dc00b98cbd0dd117fca93059.jpg
