Hello, PacMan checking in :) 9 Years, 12 Months ago  
Hi guys, Quandry let me know about this site, so decided to join up. Some of you will know me from the other MR2 website forums, and no doubt i'll have met some of you

I currently own 5 Mk2 MR2s, two are ongoing projects and the other ones i've got to nab some parts from them, then breaking the rest of them.

My main project is a Rev3 automatic thats having some super rare Phoenix's Power bodykit parts fitted, wide arch flares and lots of carbon! After the kit is fitted and the car painted, i'll be mating my newly aquired Rev2 Turbo engine to the auto box, after a rebuild of course I've spent a few grand building up a collection of parts for it, including a Phoenix's Power front bumper and rear spoiler, C-West sideskirts, Border style carbon bonnet, XV Racing engine lid, half alcantara Recaro Speed seats, BN Sports rear valance, SexyStyle arch flares (imported by myself from Japan, costing a LOT of money), and much more. I'm also paying for some 3 spoke Volk C-Ultra wheels with
255 wide tyres on the rear and 225s on the front Can't wait to get cracking on it, i'm renting a workshop a few miles away, so hopefully progress will be quick

Cheers,
Craig

No i don't mind. I have a contact in Japan who actually ordered them from a shop in Japan, then he posted them to me. They ended up costing me a good bit more than i expected, but i guess you have to put your hand in your pocket if you want something that no-one else has

Heres a quick pic below of the front end and arches. I was going to use the MRD skirts i have but the part of them which meets up the front wings foul the arches, so i'm just going to use my C-West ones until i find the £1000+ for the genuine Phoenix's Power ones

This red car is no longer going to be used as the basis for the project as i've now got a Rev3 automatic thats going to be used instead. But as i fitted the Phoenix's Power front to this car, i'm using it as a mock up t truaial fit my parts to see what they look like and if everything is going to fit

On October 4th, MR2 Drivers will be meeting for the Enniskillen straightliners event. We expect there will be a good level of MR2 interest from both the North and South so come along for a chat and the craic.

No idea what happened to my account, but pacman160778 is me.

Hard to believe this was so long ago, forum post #1767 was my very first post, and we are now on #62218

Any admin/mods like to shed any light as to why i was deleted?

More than 4 years later, still not finished...

I have the full Phoenix Power kit now though, as well as a few other nice bits and pieces, and i'm hoping that the exterior & interior will be completely finished by Christmas. The turbo conversion will be further down the line though, i'm trying not to spend any more money on the car as with all the chopping & changing i've done with regards to parts, the car will stand me an absolute fortune just to get it to this stage.

I reckon i've had 5 different sets of sideskirts fitted to the car, 3 rear bumpers and i've lost count of the number of colours i've told lee-sw20 that i wanted it painted in before settling on the original 202 black that the car was
