Probably had it with me when I bought the bride and AA63 seats from you?

Indeed! Thumbs up!
I remember you mentioned you picked it up only a few weeks before! Wink

Finally a bit of progress!
Didn't think that exterior parts would be the hardest to find of everything that was missing Undecided But i finally found lights.
When looking for lhd lights i got offered a set with a rusty Charmant attached to it (Don't worry won't scrap it, will be build as a drift car), so now i should have everything Charmant related to get this one complete.
Now its mostly ordering parts and completing the swap, hopefully i can get it on the road before the end of the year.

It's a good thing you have enough room for cars that come attached to your new headlights Smile.
Would love to see it in the flesh sometime soon.

Nice progress! Thumbs up!
Seeing those boxes, now I'm wondering what you purchased from Up Garage... Dumb question

Haha yeah i luckily have more then enough space right now Tongue
I always try to go to JCS, so probably have it with me there. Maybe some other meets but not a fan of most.
Perhaps Banpei can organise an AEU86 meet next year? Angel

Sounds like a great idea once the whole lockdown business is finally over! It's difficult to organize meetups when every 4 to 5 months there is a lockdown. I already agreed to meet up with a few guys from the UK in May and that all fell to pieces as well... Undecided

That makes a lot of sense indeed! Thumbs up!
I tried to hang on to the boxes my Almex rims were stored in, but they took up too much space in my garage and I had to let go of them. Sad

Installed all the parts back on it so i don't have to look at a shell.
I'm already glad that i bought this. Some of the parts are in better condition then on the other one and also has some of the other missing stuff Hurray!

Yeah no point in planning anything yet, probably have to cancel it anyway Undecided

Ah what a shame!

Some of the original bolts for the front end where either missing or crusty looking so i replaced them.
Good thing that i've kept all the bolts from MX5's that I parted, nothing better then bolts that factory's use IMO.
