    Still languishing a bit. Done a few things to it, had it running and then started pulling bits apart again to sort out a couple of niggles i wanted to fix.

    where did you get the main girdle? it seems nobody used them 10 years ago and now everyone is, cheap insurance I guess.

    How do you find those bonnet latches? I "work" on a few cars that have them and you need a hook pick to open the stupid things, perhaps they aren't all created equal.

    That ding in the front passenger quarter has gotten quite a bit worse since 2013.

    Hah yeah, both have snapped off actually. Have a new pack to replace them with. The girdle is from MRP in NZ, cheap security really for high RPM.

    yeah i think i'll put one on my shopping list if I end up going down the full rebuild road, plenty of things that are cheap security but they all add up eventually. or quickly.

    glad it wasn't just me with those things, I reckon pins and tether cable scratching the shit out of ones bonnet is a better look anyway.

    With those style pins you have to push down slightly on the bonnet to 'unload' them as you flick up the lever section......I was having a hell of a time with them until I fluked that little trick. No problems since.

    ^ This. Once I got used to them after installing them on my car - had no issues operating them. Best thing about them is they are an instant visual to let you know you have/haven't latched your bonnet!

    Yeah, the push down trick works well. I have seen a few cars using springs over the post section to assist in the process, the usual trick of fuel hose isnt as compressible.
    Either way though one was snapped by an idiot at a shipping company, and the other by a 4yo.

    Yeah, that is one of the main reasons i use them. In the up position i can just see them poking up.

    Nah. Have plenty of hard line bits, but for this one have decided to go braided all the way to the back.

    Hey Chris.
    Any benefit of going braided all the way with the brake lines?

    Or is it just 'because i can/want to'?

    Makes it easier for connections and maintenance. Plus routing becomes much easier through the cabin. No notable loss of pressure from all reports too.
    Sure it's more expensive, but when you already have to buy the fittings for flex lines to the hydro handbrake it's not a significant increase.

    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

    Was definitely bloody good fun. Looking forward to having more track time in the MX5 though. Especially without having to fabricate everything from scratch.
