    Interior panels wanted.

    Hi Mike. They will fit fine as the Mazda chassis is the same dimensions as the MT75 chassis and as for the lowered floors the panel doesn’t cover them anyway. If you wish to part with them PM me with what you want for them.

    I left the Honda one on but on previous Zetecs and on the Mazda that I have now I have removed.

    I have ditched harmonic dampers in the past with no ill effects. If you were leaving dynamic loads on the engine like power steering and air con pumps then I would leave well alone. They are designed for race cars which is pretty much what you are building.

    Mazda SDV, Build Number 3

    I have been waiting to fit all the clocks in the dash as its normally a job to do while you are waiting but I couldn't as I needed the scuttle. As you can see if you want to use a contoured dash on a Mazda chassis it doesn't fit. This hoop think is becoming a bit of a git. So after de-gloveing the glove box I need to cut 35mm out which by luck happens to be the width of my masking tape. once cut with the Dremmel its a simple job to fibreglass back together. Pictures to follow as I'm covered in resin and would rather the camera wasn't.

    Bodywork is here..... So far the gaps seem pretty good on the rear arches but as with most things trial fit/loosely clamp things in place until it looks right. As long as the wheel is in the middle of the arch and the gaps are good them I'm happy. (No tape measure was harmed in the making of this car) Because its a Mazda chassis one of the few differences is the dash hoop which needs a bit more notching out. And now I have the bodywork I can make a template fuel tank and get the measurements sent of to ARF for fabrication.

    Binky, Binky, Binky!

    I would have thought the whole car will have to be stripped back to the bare shell so it can be painted. If you leave the plugs off you would never know if everything works. At least the way they are doing it proves everything in stages rather than in one big lump at the end.

    About half the size/weight. Only 40 amp though but it should be enough.

    Nice, I'll add that to my list, the bodywork isn't ready yet so I have spare time. I have had an issue with the alternator as the MK2 MX5 uses a live feed to the alternator to 'excite' it but the live feed comes from the Mazda ECU which I'm not using so the WSCC Mazda collective came to the rescue and said 'why not use a MK1 alternator that doesn't. The MK1 still need a live feed but from the power relay that I haven't got wired in and when I looked the alternators are not the cheapest, not bad but could be better, so. Denso type here we go again. I was lucky that the back of the bottom bracket is the same spacing so this gave me a great staring point. As you can see the denso type has a 'V' pulley so I needed to swap and now I have an impact wrench that spins the planet they come straight off. The next problem is that the 'V' pulley has piece that stands it off and the shaft on the denso is thinner so the new lathe came to the rescue to make a 'Top hat' spacer. The pulley will need a bit of a clean up. One rose jointed alternator adjuster that again needed shortening to 85mm as the shortest one off the shelf that was M10 one end and M8 the other was 100mm long but out comes the lathe again. What did I do without it, Oh yes the grinder and loss of skin was a daily event. All fitted and less than a new MX5 one and with the added benefit that all it needs is a wire to the dash light - Simple. The black bolt will get swapped because its a stupid M10 fine job.

    Indeed. It's the people that make the show as much as the show itself.

    MX5 MK2 alternator question.

    Thanks Dommo.

    MX5 MK2 alternator question.

    Won't the MK1 still need a live feed? As well as the battery connection.
