Well lads, just some updates on the MR2.
The door sills are still in the shed, I must get around to fitting them.
I've gotten some nice stainless steel door lock protectors in the meantime.
- Its the little things that count.
The MR2 actually had trouble pre NCT whereby the jack went though the sill during some routine work at home. I had suspected the car had the sill of death at the back passanger side for a while now. I chanced my arm and put it into the NCT, but it failed for th rust as I expected. So the car was sent off to my local bodyshop for a sill rebuild.
I have no photos but the rust wasn't severe at all. The affected metal was cut away and a new piece was welded on and moulded into the sill. The car was reput into the NCT and it passed no problem. So I was delighted to say the very least. :)
So this is the point where I am currently at. The same bodyshop is going to respray the sill next Monday to make the repair invisible. But this got the auld cogs turning in my head...
While the car is in for respray work I've decided to do multiple jobs.
1. Colour code the sills.
2. Colour code the rear spats
3. Colour code the front lip - I have purchased (recieved) a Rev3 version lip from SteveH. This too will be fitted to the car and colour coded in crimson red.
I've been debating for a while whether to colourcode the car or keep it red and black. Colour coded has won ot in the end.
My overall aim is for the car is to make it a colour coded crimsson red rev1.
Like this... (but not as awesome)
I'm the market for a nice set of 15 or 16 inch alloys too. I like the Rev3 alloys I have, but I'd love a sporty aftermarket set to throw on from time to time.
