Small update.

Sadly I've not driven the car in months, mainly because I've just not had the time, Christmas, Wedding planning Rolling Eyes , fitting a turbo to my MX5 and I haven't completed the Gtechniq Crystal Serum coating so I can't use the car until I have as it will require cleaning again.. I'll do that soon as I'm dying to drive it, although the roads are far too filthy so I'm not feeling too bad.

It did come out briefly for a family photo



Thanks to Chris and him tackling his rear lights, he inspired me to make a start on mine, a nice job to do in the warmth of home.



Really not difficult, just takes some time. I did one at a time and put them in the oven at 100 degrees (fan) for about 10 mins, sometimes I did need to pop them back in. It doesn't melt the glue as I expected, heating them just makes the glue more brittle. Using a knife and screwdriver helps separate the lens from the body, once off, you just need to clean the surfaces of old glue.

I was trying to get the lens off in 1 piece for some reason, then I realised it doesn't matter, which made life easier.






I found that my lights were different, one had a plastic grill and the other was metal and this had ages, so a quick rub down and spritz with satin black sorted that.





As the grills were out, I polished the lenses up to a shine and cleaned out the housings.





Once done, just built back up. I need to order some glue then I can do the important bit of sticking the new ones on!



Thanks Chris!

That's it for now.. bye

Cracking work there Mark! I should have dismantled my lights further and cleaned wack

Turbo on the MX sounds a laugh Smile about 7 years ago we fitted a SC to my Bros 1.8, a track dog front mount cooler and a standalone ECU. Went well!

Enjoy Smile

Chris

Ha, they kind of fell apart so while out, just gave them a clean up.

The MX is by far the most fun I've had with a car, love it, nearly done with the turbo conversion now and booked to take it to the 'ring Smile

Will be back onto the 964 soon Smile
