    Mk 1 MX5 or parts

    Bit random I know, but one never knows what a fellow petrol-head might have lying about.....

    I'm looking for either a terminally rusty entire donor car, or the following parts:

    So, from an '89-'97 car please.

    All 4 uprights with brakes.
    Power steering rack
    Steering Column complete with switchgear shroud wheel etc Would also ideally want at least part of the loom that connects to the switchgear, unless anyone knows where suitable connectors can be had.
    Handbrake lever and cables
    Petrol filler neck
    Seats if in OK condition, not too garish a colour ideally....
    Brake and clutch pedal assemblies complete
    Possibly even the wheels?

    Thanks for looking.

    Chris

    Chris, this is my lads car. Just failed and we have no time for it at the moment.
    Give him a bell and we'll work something out.

    Hah, well I'll be....!! Just goes to show, it pays to ask doesn't it!! Thanks John. I should warn you though....I'm looking at very cheap and wouldn't want to either offend or take advantage.....


    I'm probably being dense, can't see his number on the ad. and also have to confess I've forgotten your lads name

    That would be the one. I suspect it was hiding in plain sight, much like Andys name....

    Hi Chris
    Can I ask what you're planning to build?

    regards

    Hi Paul,

    Certainly, one of these: www.midlana.com Came across it by accident - one web site led to another, as they have a habit of doing, and I rather liked the idea of it. We already have a Westfield, this is much the same only mid-engine. I wasn't intending another car build at all....it just kind of happened! I'd rather be building a shiny new LB to be honest, but I simply don't have the funds for another top-end project, nor am I likely to ever again, so it was a lo-cost or nothing. I'll be finding myself out of work/enforced early retirement next year so it seemed like a good idea to have a project to keep me out of trouble.

    Hi Chris

    This sounds like an interesting project.... I guess a 3L Alfa will push you down the road quite nicely !!!!

    Keep us all posted

    Cheers

    Phil
