    For sale jap import eunos roadster 1.6

    I started this build as I wanted to start with a completely rust free mx to either turbo or supercharge. Unfortunately I've had other commitments meaning I couldn't finish it how I wanted. So just put together so I could use it.

    11months mot. 5months tax
    built the car from shell up. Underneath is totally rust free and under sealed.
    Subframes powder coated
    welded diff
    manualised steering rack with fixed internal spindle
    hardtop
    banded steels
    new ta technic coilovers
    full scorpion exhaust system

    things that aren't so good, but I'm still using it so not that bad are:
    50pence rust bubble on osr arch. Nothing bad and easily fixable. Currently hidden by a sticker
    clutch release bearing noisey and gearbox whines
    cas oil seal leaks engine oil a little bit.
    All these things are easily sorted, eBay has gearboxes for next to nothing.

    Its not the most comfy car to drive, bit of wheel wobble past 70mph.

    After £1200 will listen to offers via pm. Please no spammers on my thread.

    Underneath is mint. No rust.
    It just has a 20pence size bit of surface rust on the osr wing. Nothing structural or anything. Could easily be sorted.

    Oops 50pence size as original post, which can be seen in the pictures.

    You do realise these dont really rust underneath anyway right? As in ever single mx5 that gets broken for rust is due to arches and sills? And it might be worth cleaning back and actually showing the rust that it does have, as if its on the arch its rotting from the inside out meaning it will be a much larger area than a 50p coin.

    (I lied slightly mk2s onwards rust on chassis rails due to changing to multi layers on the front chassis rail skins, mk1s dont though)

    Just trying to help any prospective buyers.

    Yeah they do rust pretty much every where. Had a few now to know this.

    The sills on this one inner and outer are perfect.
    The wings are perfect inner and outer. All apart from the osr which is outside only. I'd say someone previously banged it with a door or something enough to break the paint to the start to bubble.

    Best thing to do is view it and see. Got noting to hide.

    It's whinning a bit. Doesn't pop out of gear or crunch or anything. I'm still using it daily about 40-60milesa day.
    Was waiting for it to go bang before replacing it.
