Ebay link to German wheels sold in the UK

the wide wheels will not fit without major modifications due to the offset. Narrow ones should fit well. (there was a company that was selling Minilite style wheel sets with nuts but don't seem to be listed at the moment.)

you will probably need to have made or find nuts to suit the above listed wheels.


i take it you arethe Stewart that sold me my car 13 years ago?

Doesn't time fly.


I toyed with the idea of buying your modified white convertible but it sold before I could make my mind up. DC2 forum link (will need to log in to see)

This Kawasaki powered S600 sold in the US for Approx' £20,000 relatively recently

i take it the car you have now will remain standard apart from a few mild upgrades?

small update

prop-shaft was stroke of luck. non standard vehicle at work having a different gearbox fitted required a different prop-shaft. the old prop just happens to be the right length and flange type to fit my S800. a deal was done with the prop in exchange for a little machining job. emoticon (the longer one was going to be my mockup prop from an R Type Jag)

needed to fit the exhaust to fabricate and route the handbrake linkage. iv'e fitted a LHD S800 handbrake lever and will need to route a rod around the exhaust and prop-shaft to connect it to the MX5 cables. should be fun.


(note. the exhaust tips do not stick out any further that the rear edge of the tailgate.)
