  1. MX5 is a sweet n easy n cheap way to go, the g/box is a good unit too
  2. building a diff is not for a beginner without the correct tools, ideally you also want some engineers blue or a few permanant markers, i've seen it done with grease, pinion brg preload with the crush tube is important, first job is get the diff out, you may need a halfshaft puller, some fall out an some are a right bastad lol, order some new halfshaft seals as well, once diff is out wash the gears and inspect for damage and or shadows on the teeth face?, if all clear then get yr bearing kit an new pinion seal and rebuild it, best to find someone skilled in the job and watch them do it so as to learn, good luck
  3. also interested in another pair of V4 ones as in picture

  17. this page is a good resource for tyre size and it shows yr well under size as Katana suggested https://www.tyresizecalculator.com/tyre-wheel-calculators/tyre-size-for-rim-size-width-calculator
  18. yeh i get that, but check with the tyre manufacturer if those tyres are ok on a 7.5" rim?, as i know of 2 people now who's classics have been written off in accidents and insurance didnt pay out because tyres were incorrect size for rims, insurance co's love a stupid reason not to pay out
  19. not a lover of letter painting but it seems to suit on some vehicles, yours look ok as not to much on, what bothers me more is the undersized tyres on your rims, they look very stretched, just not wide enough?, i know that seems to be a fashion these days? Lovely Wheels though
  20. yeh thats just what i said in my head lol, now if it had not been on the trolley it would of hit the bumper lol
