New to here and the 2 5 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 5
Howdy,
Been lurking a while,have gone through quite a few motors and always had a bit of gra for the mr2. So bit the bullet and picked up a 99 beams the other day, pretty clean example needs a few little bits done. And a bit of tlc on the paint etc to get her where I want it. But its a joy to drive. Im based in Waterford at the moment. Plenty of great info on this site already hope yee dont mind me pickin yer brains along the way.

I wouldn't call it photoshoot ready yet, but heres a couple of snaps I took the other day.

I think it might have shown up on here before, fairly lightly given the limited amount of them id say.

Cheers lads, sharp eye on you there Bommie they certainly are nt03's, albeit in need of some love, was thinkinkg of changing them at first but they're growing on me now. Ill need to get them refurbished though so just about finding the right place now. The aerial just makes a growning sound when turned on n off but does nothing so withouth looking at it yet im hoping its only the teeth on the mast cord.
Im east Waterford not to far from Tramore, how about yourself?

My aeriel does that as well from time to time but i find if i give it a little helping hand it frees up and works properly 90% of the time now

cheers lads, yeh so now the work/fun begins. After the aerial im gona start doin some touchups on the paintwork it could look alot better and dont have the bread to be doin anything fancy like a respray so might open up a thread on that to see what yee think. Followed Eringobragh's thread on boards a while back where he compounded his mr2 and it looked smashing afterwords. there are a few spots on it though that have paint removed altogether so will have to look into the best solution (or second best to spraying it).

ya Tramore has been battered the last month or so with weather, the winds/seas here the last few weeks make me wish i was better with a camera.(the coast road from dungarvan to fenor is a hidden gem*) I saw a black 2 for sale in Tramore recently online and spotted a black one parked out the waterford road not sure if they're one in the same though. There's another now at least

a recent pic of the prom in tramore

_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG :woohoo:

High praise for the wheel doctor the only guys I heard about around were SP heat transfer in Waterford. Heard good stuff about tallaght powercoating guys but they're far enough away to make it a pain in the arse, saying that so's tipp, but im up n down that way a bit so must give them a shout, cheers cozzy. ;)
