Well its been many months but I spent a whole day on Mazzy today, did lots of little jobs but very rewarding. I have been fighting with the engine mounts for some time and everything was getting too complicated, back to basics is my favorite motto, and I simplified the whole process and have come up with simple design using the MX5 genuine mounts, will post pictures when fabrication is complete

Well more bits have turned up today for mazzy, I now have new headlights and taillights, lots of metal work to be done in the up coming months. Oh and I'm not showing you pics of the headlights or tail lights till they are fitted, but they do look super cool. I haven't seen these on a morry before so I wanna be the first

Mazzy has taken huge steps forward today, I took it up to Rodz North who are fabricating a removeable top based on their early Ford roof, it will take about two months

Been hooking up the MX5 wiring loom to the engine so I can test fire it before I strip it down, its always good to know the engine works before stripping it. I am starting to feel my age as my knees started protesting as I was hooking everything up. I'm about 80% there but now need a manual to nut it out further
