That’s some major surgery there carried out, well done it’s a nice model to keep going and back on the road. :+1:

Thanks Mick

My first viewing of any MX-5 to buy was the Harvard model. The owner told me a few porkies about the condition, didn’t mention the tennis ball size hole in one of the outer sills. Also took photos of the interior and posted them, it looked nice, when I got there it was a wreck inside there. Wanted around £3250 for it (about 10 years ago) he wasn’t pleased when I said it’s not worth £2k, good luck with that.

Oh eck thats bad when people try and hide the issues with photos and want the earth for them. I bought mine 4 or 5 years ago paid £1500 it wasn’t in great condition drivers side had been sprayed over with a spray can so i knew it maybe covering up something but it was my first introduction to mx5s and i just wanted it lol .

That is a great job. You are to be commended.
I shall mention you in Dispatches. :smiley:
