Sensible Daily Mx5

Recommended Posts

Im looking for an excuse to not work on my cars, so I thought I might make a little build thread for my daily.

 

 

First off I had my purple sil. But that was taking too long to get on the road because Im shit.

 

So I bought a daily, the cheapest red na6 I could find named Stanley.

Slammed it.

Put it on Buddyclubs with conversion spacers.

And we were the best of friends.

 

Then slammed it into Mac Pass. Im a P-plater, its what we do...

 

 

 

So after looking at repairing it and a whole lot of other shit I decided to let it sit in my parents back shed and buy another one.

Had a pretty imac interior.

And a platypus sticker...

Oh, and a roll bar.

 

 

Then I heard this song and it gave me ideas:

Also made a gear knob out of a ping pong ball, cause EVERY GRAM COUNTS!

And bought a tiny steering wheel from Japan.

At this point put it on a weigh bridge and with all the spare tyre and everything gone came in at 1020kg on full tank of fuel. Dang...

 

For a while I was running no door trims, but that was just making it a bit too obvious. So I got some stainless steel screws, cup washers and some speaker material. Stretched the speaker material over the doors and drilled holes for the screws. Came out pretty good for how little time and effort was put in.

I put in a pair of Sparco Evos I had laying around. (Need to take some photos.)

Then these guys gave me an idea...

Pretty Imac, came with SSR valve caps as well which made my day.

 

 

 

Put on a fibreglass boot, has a bit of a whale tail to it as well. Needs paint.

Put on front lip and got the 195 stretched onto the professors.

Static strap, the most important mod of all...

Line 'em up.

Underbonnet I just have a catch can and alloy intake pipe (I accidently broke the stock one...). The intake pipe is meant for some type of commodore but I just trimmed it and made it fit.

But there are some big changes lined up to help this thing move. In the meantime I'm looking at getting a diff, bigger brakes, rear camber arms, etc. Maybe some time attack mirrors and front undertray. Just need to save up some coin first.

 

Then, once my silvia is back on the road this is coming off the road and Im stripping a bit more carpet and wiring for stereo and power mirrors, etc and cleaning up the interior a bit. Im going to take the dash out of the old NA6 and chop it up a bit to make the stripped interior look a little bit neater and respray the interior to clean it up.

 

Thats all for now.
