I have seen your thread on Mx5nutz 

I used to contribute to 13, then 11 and eventually now about 8 very different forums.

As long as people read, respond, and help/advise, I am happy to post.

Forums frequented by dickheads I tend to just quickly leave quietly rather than waste my time.

What a fantastic project, and the carport has given me some inspirations for my own area!

Thank you.

Yes, the carport was relatively cheap, totally over engineered but turned into a great space to work in, especially in the rain.

I check in on your thread on RR occasionally but it's good to see a brief overview thread here! Looks like it will be great fun to drive.  I love it! 

I wanted to build this for years, and sometimes one just needs to be patient 

It certainly has come to to about 95% of what I visualised, and that, to me, is a brilliant result. 
 

Problem is……….

 I am already here……

Nice, fast work as well; I'd be fitting taller tyres than that but life would be boring if we all liked the same things. Are you slinging chainblocks etc off your carport frame or do you just like things a bit too strong? I now need to build a carport.


Thank you mate.

 Well, a lot of people challenge me about the wheels, height etc, but what I have built, and wanted all along was actually one of these below.

A tribute to the Filipino “Owner Type” jeeps.

Pics below. 

Are you slinging chainblocks etc off your carport frame or do you just like things a bit too strong?

 I do have a block and tackle that will pull 500kg, 

So the MX5 engine and gearbox was a doddle, as was the original jeep etc. 

I do prefer over engineered to “Oh Shit” and the engineer who I had to make the frame up for me, has told my local builder that I have the strongest carport in the Medway. We also have winds mostly the rear, hence the slope, but if it came from the front, I would prefer it all to stay put, as it becomes a huge windsock the way it is enclosed on 3 sides.
