Yep itís all fuckíd

Markets a bull trap in the making.

Iíve had my day with bit coin, back when folk said it would never work. Itís hit the floor again but with this covid who knows which way itíll move medium - long term.

Economy post might be good. While I expect to keep a job, Capex is going to be slashed abruptly and itís going to be a phase of hold on keep running, keep costs to a minimum.

Considering asking this man when he wants his 2 grand.

Crossover pipe doesn't sounds too bad assuming you can get to it, few days on the ramp may sort that.

Part supply looks a twat though, none of the motor factor suppliers list it and the main dealer is closed.

Fair lump of car for £2750 I had no idea these things are so cheap. I think I slept through the last 5 years? I still think 2014 cars are new

Aye a lot of car for the money, stick a personalised plate on it and drive around like a baller

Something that can easily bite some people but if you are capable of doing the repairs yourself like Ian, Bargins can be had.

I think 2750 is quite strong, it needs the body off to fit the crossover pipe.

Might call him tomorrow while I've got some support

He should be grateful for 2k right now or he can keep it as an ornament for probably 18 months at least.

First job is change out the oil pump.. The housing on the original pumps randomly fail and destroy the engine.

The cross over pipes normally only crack after someone has had the gearbox off and not bothered refitting the brackets properly so its probably got a very interesting history.

There are stainless cross over pipes available now that should pretty much last forever..

Its a really shitty job to do, you'll need a 2 poster and lots of patience.

Oil pump is easy with the right tools.

Certainly will be the case, even if he sits on it and holds out buyers for something like that are few and far between. Should be easy to convince him

I'm looking to switch my current MX5 Mk3 for a Mk4 once all this is over with. I've got the folding hard-top version at the moment due to not having a garage.

But, if i get a garage built (which is the plan), i'd prefer the soft-top version

Have they gone back to fabric on the newer ones? Surely a better way of doing it.

Two versions of the current generation. Fabric one or one with a folding metal roof.
Has another name but cant think what it is.

Fabric is the way forwards as the metal roof has a weird roof line
