The steering wheel controls are bangin too, but I have cruse so that will not work, besides I think they are not made anymore. Nice Clean Look for sure!!! Outstanding!!!
    It is a Daikei Boss Hub Kit and Daikei Polished Hub Cover. The steering wheel is a Nardi 60th Anniversary edition.

    It needs work to be right. Got the lights, fuel lid, etc. but would need to be mounted onto a car and then repaired.

    Got my 2x Pitcrew together today as seemed only right to get them both in the same photo. Apart from Tetsushi Uezono, the owner of Pitcrew Racing I wonder how many people in the world have 2 Pitcrew Roasters.


    My black Pitcrew got all the comments from the local neighbours today. To thecar enthusiasts amongst them they are all attracted to the exterior, engine induction of ITBs or interior. The green one though is a bit of a project





    I am pretty sure the green one can be special but a longer-term project. I replaced the door cars this week as they were a bit tatty and in a lucky moment from the same breaker got an alloy gear knob. Got home and as the car had some trick bits wondered if it was anything special and turns out to be a Zoom Engineering variant so happy days!

    My rarest roadster -

    1 of only 106 ever built worldwide to this specification. Arguably one of the rarest MX5 ever built. M2 cars were 1 of 300, Le Mans car a special edition here in the UK 24 but with the exterior and mechanical upgrades with this limited edition noteworthy nonetheless.





    With my Mica Satellite Blue R-Limited a fitting pair

    Whoah. There were only 100 M2-1002s built. And then the Tokyo Limited; factory built, although technically not a factory special (a special commission of 40 cars from a Eunos dealer). Autolink has just brought a pretty decent example over.

    The White R-Limited now has red roadster mats.



    Also replaced a couple of missing red trim parts from spares I have so it is fully complete now.

    Today I also picked up my yellow J-Limited. I had been after a yellow MK1 for a quite a while as I think they are a rare colour and what with a yellow MR2 the colour had grown on me. This one has only done 60,000 miles, not many owners but had obviously over the last 13 years either been untaxed/not on the road or seen very little usage. Following a lot of service work last year it now has had the following -

    1. Rust cut out on the rear sills, inner sills repaired where necessary along with new metal on both outer sills.
    2. Rear boot lid spoiler emoved (I don't like the type on it), holes welded.
    3. Front factory lip spoiler fitted.
    4. New tein coilovers fitted - not gone ultra low but lost the 4x4 ride height it did have.
    5. Full respray including the hardtop and the factory front lip spoiler
    6. SSR MK2 resprayed to graphite grey centres.
    7. New factory door mirrors purchased in correct colour.
    8. Full hardtop fitting kit - side clamps now in place.

    Some photos -

    Thanks Russell. I am pleased how the work turned out on the car. It’s gone over budget but you don’t see many J-Limited for sale anymore so I wouldn’t have found one this clean on the UK market place.

    If I am helping you think about MX5s no bad thing. If you can justify it wide arches, Mazdaspeed N2 Type replica would be pretty cool or get the BRG back on the road with huge mods and enjoy with you mr family as must be one the longest-owning cars you’ve had I’d have thought.

    A few updates over a couple of posts.

    The green Pitcrew now has a retro style bar which I was told by a fellow enthusiast is made by Active in Japan. I have the same one in my black Pitcrew while my black roadster has the similar version by ARC.



    I need to remove the stickers but fitted it straight away.

    Next up the yellow J-Limited has the limited edition 'Eunos' alloy gear surround found in the VR Limited.



    Lastly ordered through Maxime at Rev9 Autosport a Trap dashboard cover. I have this part in my Black Pitcrew and Black roadster trimmed in Nakamae red leather. I really like this part and had wanted for the silver roadster for quite a while. By the time I wanted to sort Trap had discontinued. Luckily as I have them already the owner of Trap agreed to do another but this time in black leather.

    Another change. I have added a hardtop to the White R-Limited. All bar my Green Pitcrew have hardtops. Got this one as came up on the other side of London about an hour away and is an original Chaste white finish HRW version.

    Yeah, have never chalked you up to being a Sickspeed kinda guy.

    If only you had the ability to convince them they needed to do a LHD version

    I’ve known your collection for a while but now I’m not sure precisely what you have. Would you humour a fellow roadster but with an inventory recap?

    I lose track myself Pete! In order of ownership (longest first)

    1. Silver Tuckin99 N2 FM2 Turbo - since 2007.
    2. Black Pitcrew Roadster - since 2013.
    3. Blue R-Limited - since 2015.
    4. Black Roadster - since 2015.
    5. Yellow MR2 Turbo - since 2017.
    6. White MR2 Turbo - since 2017.
    7. Grey MR2 3.0 V6 - since 2018.
    8. Yellow J-Limited - since 2018.
    9. Green Pitcrew Roadster - since 2019.
    10 - White R-Limited

    PS - I need to remove the stickers off that style bar! The trap dashboard cover wasn't cheap but with all the bits from Zoom and Nakamae a nice part to add. I had got told no on it earlier this year but I think being a sales man and not giving up helped change that decision.
