    Don’t often show the R-Limited but fitted a nicely trimmed black leather Speedo Cowl today I got just before Christmas from a fellow enthusiast. Goes with the factory optional extra sunglass holder, new gear gaiter and mirror all fitted tail end of 2018.

    Thanks. I started on this R Limited about March 2015 and before that had owned 2 or 3 in quick succession which I got buyers remorse with as for me didn't justify the time and effort of making a good R Limited from. The R Limited shares the same mechanics as the RS Limited but I have always liked the colour and the red interior so if I was to build a stock car it had to be one of these.

    Still a few jobs I need to do with this one but is my attempt at making a tidy stock condition car. I do need to wash the car mats though!

    Hi Pete. The seats have been re-trimmed completely with new backs, etc. in a red leather to match the original design.

    A rare (ish) part that I have owned before a few times but like some got rid of and then realized I would like for another. Part is question is the Eunos Roadster VR Limited alloy gear surround. I have always liked this part and fits with my R Limited have original factory equipment. I have been looking for the last 6 to 12 months but finally found one ove the weekend. A quick purchase, quick delivery and fitted today.



    Also fitted a sunglass holder, which is another factory extra in the J-Limited. The yellow roadster has been stored over winter but the intention will be in the coming months to get it back on the road and carry out some continued improvements.

    I have the same ring at home for my Eunos. It really gives the interior a nice touch.

    Yeah they are nice and more difficult to get hold it would seem then a few years ago.

    I had on a couple of VR Limited roadsters over the years and had a spare I got rid of a while ago. My R Limited is meant to be fairly stock as was my attempt a few years ago and doing a restore back to a stock model. I wanted this part as fits with that theme.

    A boring update but a part I have been after since getting the yellow J-Limited. I have Mazdaspeed engine strut-braces in my Pitcrew, black S-Special come S-Limited while the R-Limited has the standard brace it left the factory with and the silver car with turbo means its not possible.

    The yellow J-Limited came with a brace I imagine fitted from Japan but I wasn't overly impressed and I wanted a yellow strut brace like I have in my R-Limited that came as standard equipment in that model but also the RS-Limited and the S-Special.

    In the J-Limited looks alright too



    On Monday it will be insured and on Saturday I plan to put it through a MOT (national vehicle test in the UK). The car hasn't been on the road in nearly a year and done very little miles for the last 8-10 years. If that all goes to plan in April it will get some love.

    Brought the yellow J-Limited home as it has been at a lock-up since I got it in November whilst I don't think it has been washed it a long-time as hot soapy water and it was nice to find the paint was actually pretty decent under the layers of grime. On the SSR MK2 needs lowered a little but looks a lot better.




    Cheers

    James.

    MOT passed today which is the national annual car inspection test the authorities over here require.

    Likewise yesterday I bought a hardtop for it.

    My inital MK1 MX5 from around 20 years ago should have been yellow but I went for a red MK1 instead.

    Wheel wise I like them red but if change colour thinking a graphite grey.

    cheers

    Car is home at the moment so I cleaned out the interior today. I was going to switch the leather seats for some stock cloth mk1 seats I have but the seats and the interior (like the exterior) came out well with some decent elbow grease.
