I’m Juan and I’m in the Cheshire East area (close to Greater Manchester).
It’s been a while since I bought my first and only MX-5, and I have read a few posts in this forum but now I’ve finally decided to introduce myself.
I got a 2003 NB mk2.5, 1.8 vvt in a gorgeous splash green colour (but never looking green in photos!).
General shape of the car is good, with the sills professionally repaired in June, and no rust underneath the car. I spent several days removing surface rust from the rear arches and rust proofing the rear and front too. All brakes changed, and new rear caliper installed, and front cleaner and painted (in black, I prefer to be discrete!)
As I love detailing and I’ve been doing it for years, of course I clayed and sealed the paint all around the car, and maybe, during this window of good weather in Christmas, I’ll get the DA polisher for a 2-3 stage paint correction.
And more things done (and a lot more to do!), apart from regular servicing etc.
Right now, enjoying driving it when the weather is good, as it is not my daily driver, and putting a smile on my face when sun is shining and I drive it top down!
Love the feeling of community around this car and I hope I could join some meetings soon, when it’s allowed!
