First post of 2010

Added a new addition to the car today a nice Momo Quark steering wheel, only taken 10 years to get rid of the very dated looking original Mitsi one.

Keeping checking back as I've a good few updates for the car and site coming soon.
Steering wheel removal guide will be the first one.

I've been busy

Been a little bit busy with the car this week, added new clear indicators, these are modded MX5 ones. New dial faces fitted I didn't want something too bright as I don't think it work with ny car as I quite like the simple black interior. Changed the wheels I now have EVO8 Enkie's which fill the arches much better, still got to take some pics and add them to the site though. Done a rough fit of an extra JL Audio amp for the sub as the 4 channel one currently fitted wasn't really up to the job + i can now have a remote bass controller up front in the car.

That's all for now.

Works with all browsers.

Spotted a few problems with the site layout not working in Google Chrome, this has now been fixed so the site works fine with the following Internet Explorer, Opera, Firefox, Safari, and Google Chrome, also working fine on mobile devices such as Iphone/Ipod Touch.

2009 Update

Hello peeps,
Right first post of 2009, so what have i got planned, well as soon as the weather gets better, I have a whole box of various bits to go on the car, new plugs and leads, wheel spacers, new front calipers, new ICE bits and pieces plus loads of other spares I aquired in the last year.

Site wise well the usual meets will be added and a few more workshop guides and if time I may totally redo the site, so as ever of you have any suggestions feel free to post them up here.

I'll be removing the guestbook soon as its kind of pointless now and just gets spammed which I can't stop. I need to replace it with something else though.

Anybody looking to advertise please email me:

Been real lazy with updating both here and on the main site, that's what buying a new house and then an Xbox360 does for you.
Right anyway added a new pic of the carbon fibre gear surround, check out the My FTO page for that. Easily one of the best mods i've ever done inside the car, but now means aload more pics will need updating.
I intend to add a lot more to the site this year, plenty of new pics to come + a few guides. Also the site is moving to a new server soon with a lot more available bandwith so expect also to see a few vid from events.
I have a shit load more camera equipment now so expect to see better pics appearing shorty with the better weather coming.

Asd i've said before if you have suggestions on what you'd like to see post them up here or email direct

BTW yet again straight through the MOT......never failed yet :-) and no advisories.

General Update

Now the weather is getting better I've now started work on the FTO, currently project is replacing the front bumper which is now very stone chipped and has laquer peeling off.
I have aquired a very cheap silver one which didn't need much work to prep it for spraying, current state is stone chips and minor scratches filled and rubbed down and a couple of coats of primer, hopefully all finished over the next few weeks, I'll also be fitting modified sidelight/indicator pods once these are also finished.

MOT - Another Pass

Had the MOT this morning, passed with just a couple of things to get sorted, rear pads low(already had spares ready to change), rear droplinks, slight play in them, minor corrosion on 2 brake pipes which is easily dealt with. So pretty good result as the things pointed out are routine service items anyway.

2007 First Post

Ok my first post of the year, I have just added some new pictures to the MyFTO page on the website after realising the ones on there must have been 4 years old.
Loads of plans for the car this year, for the last 12 months I have bought various spare parts etc to fit, so the list below will hopefully all get done and I'll try and do workshop guide for some of them.
Alternator - Mine is on its way out.
Poly rear anti roll bar bushes.
Oil Catch tank
Front Caliper Bolts
Rear Brake pads
Indicator Mod
New Oil Temp Gauge - Not happy with the current one.

Also planning on maybe redoing some parts of the website, feel free to post any suggestions.
