Hello All

I'm thinking of selling my MR2 - *only* because 4 seats can carry alot more 'stuff' than 2 seats ;D- You can see a renovation thread here:

Some current pics are:
OS Arch
NS arch is in need of more work - trying to find lead for camera - but this is the arch mid way through rubing down last autumn

Since the rebuild thread - I have also replaced the gearbox (as the one on the car had input shaft bearing wear) and the NS wing (with a new old stock wing in the right colour). The OS wing is OK. I have tidied up the wheels too.

To recap:
New clutch and release bearing
Replacement used gearbox
Replacement used exhaust system
Repaired rears of sills (NS and OS)
Cambelt changed
Oil, fuel and air filter changed
Has already Magnecor HT leads
New dizzy cap and arm
General engine tidy up
Coolant changed and bled
Replaced NS wing for NOS
A posts checked and waxoiled
Sills waxoiled

I have periodically also added more rust proofing to the sills and the A posts. My hasty repair on the rear arches is due a better rub down again this summer and the repair at the base of the rear arches is crude - but I was very short on time for this last bit!! The only other fault I have noticed is a slight knocking from the NS - from a perished bush. I suspect

A really good and solid little car!
Cheers - Ian
