Thanks Russ, were a father and sons team, and we are running the MX for a few weeks prior to stripping it to see what we have bought! I've only driven it a few miles so far, and apart from a rattle that appears to be coming from the rear brakes, all seems well.
Subframes will clearly need a media blast and paint prior to assembly, but I'm planning new poly bushes all round, wilwood brakes on the front, refurb the rear brakes, some coil overs, and a general refurb of everything else on the reassembly!
Wondering if an engine/box and diff overhaul are worth doing while its all in bits too.

Hi Kev some luck for you I’m in Swindon but my mk1 Exocet is a way off finished I had had it a few years and more of a storage cupboard now. In a week or so hoping to get back on it though finally and you are welcome to come have a look. I have also taken apart many mx5 and have loads of spares and extra bits.
Hi Ritchie, only just got back from summer hols. How did you get on? Sure I could swing by one evening this week if that works for you? Kev
Hey Kev sorry I never get notifications and it’s very quiet on the forum now. It’s got wiring we got a few lights and the fuel pump but no starter, hoping it’s a bad starter so I will be removing it and putting 12v directly before I buy another 2nd hand.
