    My Nan's Micra build.

    The new donor mx5 120am I finished at the unit, family friend blew the head on their CG10 povvo spec micra but was insistent on having it fixed. Bought another facelift with running engine for 30 quid. Banging. Think I'm dragging Fujiwara_Ben and Willsta3000 down tomorrow to help me rip...

    My Nan's Micra build.

    Ouch. 3 weeks since last update. (Killed my phone big time, frontera front hub being dropped on it didn't help) Soooo... For a number of reasons, I've decided to start certain bits of the build again. Namely, I bought *another* MX5, my mate put it into a tree. It's on tein coilovers, hardtop...

    Apparently there were a number of naysayers and #### talkers at JAE. Will make victory sweeter once it's actually done [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] Sent from my SM-G930F using Micra Sports Club mobile app

    My Nan's Micra build.

    The last week or two, in a nutshell. Nowhere near home to even think about working on the micra. Lots of sweets for a tuck shop at a youth festival Drove a telehandler a lot And that was about it. Progress should start up again after the 9th of this month as that's when the agricultural...

    My Nan's Micra build.

    Quick update. Ben's been in the unit all week with his cg13 powered K10, I'll leave some of the details for him to post on his blog. All I did was modify the chassis mount for the drivers side engine mount. Photos to follow. However. If you look at the first post on this thread, you'll see my...

    My Nan's Micra build.

    Got Fujiwara_Ben and his K10 coming to live at the unit for the week, so I've got to get my nans micra out for a week to make space. Needed to get the muck spreader out of the way too, so we cracked out the big Colchester down the farm today. 5mm throwout on a chain drive shaft. Cue the big...

    Lack of progress excuse #9000 Rebuilding a Massey Ferguson muck spreader from the 70s(?) Also bought a car trailer today, hoping to have that back on home soil by the weekend. Preparing to drop £200 in steel to get it how I want it [emoji23] Trying to get the inner arch profile worked out...

    JAE 2017 Stand List - Post here if you're attending!

    I'd like to come, just got to ask Fujiwara_Ben if i can borrow one of his roadgoing micras for the weekend. If I can persuade a friend to let me borrow his car trailer I'd bring my daily (CMax) and bring My Nan's Micra up as a trailer queen. Can't see him lending me the trailer for the weekend...

    Got some more of the fillet done today on the widebody. Fujiwara_Ben popped by to change springs on his sunny. Also, here's some more welding. The sills should stand the test of time in this format. Sent from my SM-G930F using Micra Sports Club mobile app

    My Nan's Micra build.

    I've got quite a passionate hatred for bolt on arches. Cue the widebody. 3" different at bottom, 2" at top. Will be running 30mm spacers on the rear wheels. Back of the panel welded in and sprayed just to see if I liked the look of it. I think I do, but im still undecided. Sent from my...

    My Nan's Micra build.

    Did some alignment today. Chassis is straight and seen that the rear subframe (is only roughly bolted in, no captive nuts or bolts yet) is 9mm out from one side to the other relative to the front of the car. Easily sorted in the next few days. Needed this clever arrangement of box section and...

    My Nan's Micra build.

    Today, I tacked an engine mount to a bit of box. And put it through a bandsaw And got this. Moved it over 50mm and cut a bit out with the plasma to access the bolt hole Tacked it in, welded to box again but at an angle to get the flange on the subframe side off. 6mm plate to move it...

    My Nan's Micra build.

    Took the sump off today to have a little look at it. Think we can get away with moving the oil pickup upwards by 30mm and doing the same with the bottom of the sump. We've been struggling for clearance on the bonnet and subframe for a while. Sent from my SM-G930F using Micra Sports Club...

    This is getting some Binky-esque modification to make a 40mmx60mm channel in the bulkhead to so I can move the engine further back. Sent from my SM-G930F using Micra Sports Club mobile app
