JimsFactory: I’m not gay, it was a present from my boy friend.

In my last little post I mentioned I had just picked up an awesome little MX5… I have had it about a week now and all is going well. I have already had 2 different people who I don’t know scream “Faggot” at me so I’m kind of getting used to it now.  Anyway so far this week I have fitted a nice set of HSD coilovers and a Garage Vary style front lip! Everything else on the car is a bone stock UK 1.8. While fitting them to the car I came up with the name “The Titanic” because every bolt under the car was rusted together like it’s been living under the sea for the last 100 years but I managed to get everything off in the end and the front end is back to being adjustable. 😀

This is the car just after I picked it up:

And then last night after all the good stuff was fitted we snapped it on the drive!

I know the wheels are an embarrassment… Wheels, a Diff and a roll bar is all it’s having at the moment. It’s an MX-5, it doesn’t need any more when your hitting  every corner at 110mph! What’s best is the keen but frugal 1.8, you can actually get some places for £10 of fuel, which is the right price!

As for work in the Factory for the last week or so I have been working on a bit of a show piece! Come and have a look if you see me about at Japfest 2 at the weekend. If your already following on Facebook then you will have seen it in many different stages but its finished now.

Awesome car when properly aligned! People randomly change their mind on it after getting passed by a ‘hairdresser’ 😀
