    Itsy busty teeny weeny micro meet

    Driving through a local village on my way to halfords on Sunday and I saw a red mr2 driving towards me. Realising there Are so few about I figured it would be Stuart who lives quite close...but we have never managed to meet..
    Anyway, we flashed lights, pulled over and had a tiny little mr2 mk1 meet.

    Great to meet you Stuart.

    I am in Ashford, always up for a little MR2 meet, I see a couple around, one lives on the next road up, another couple in Folkestone I have seen and I saw a red one on the back roads of Lenham earlier in the week.

    I was thinking the other day i've not seen a mk1 about for a long time now.

    But I can look in my garage every night

    Can't wait to get mine going again! I've got the buzz for it now as well!

    That's a shame Stuart, to be fair, I have only recently signed up to the MK1 Club, the previous owner was on here though I believe. the car has gone down hill a little since then. found some painted over rust, which was a shame... and then the spring broke on the bonnet catch when I didn't close the bonnet properly... so need to paint and fit my new bonnet and get a new windscreen, I am a little ashamed to show other owners at the moment... :S

    Don't be ashamed Jemehan. At 30 yrs old they are all in different states of repair and upgrade and that makes it interesting. Be carefull if having your windscreen replaced as often they are not sealed properly at the top and this causes the roof to rust along that edge. Seen it too many times.

    I've made huge progress with mine this year but still I have a long list of jobs to do

    After the new one is fitted, I will be funning a nice amount of sealant across the top to ensure it seal properly. I think the cracked screen is causing a water leak... need to re-spray my spare bonnet and fill my wing as it has rust holes...

    Looking forward to seeing people around
