Yet another car



  • Well what an eventful week, got home from holiday had an email in my inbox, this guy I have been trying to buy his eunos for about 3 months but he wouldnt go any lower than £600 for it without tax and MOT

    Now he has put the standard enkeis back on the price has plummeted, so today did the deal and paid for the car, listed it for collection and its currently being collected and will be delivered to me at 6.30am tomorrow so I will have it in less than 18 hours since buying it

    Has receipts for £2500 of work on it in the last 18 months ( he won £76k on the lotto and was doing it up for shows and now wants 3 quad bikes instead)
    Just look at it and judge yourselves, brand new stainless system brtand new suspension all round plus the other goodies

    These are the only pics I have of it, lets hope its a good un :wink:





  • id be tempted to keep that one and swap in the ze!, it looks very good and hopefully in good nick body wise too. It would be a shame to pilfer parts off that one :(

    My dad said the same thing, except the engine swap bit :lol:

    Factoring in labour costs? i suspect hes having the front bumper away.



  • Hate to say it but i may prefer that eunos over the equipe.



  • Let me know what you do with it.



  • Got the car delivered at 6'30am, the body is mint, has the MS front bumper I want, an ms rear spoiler, brand new alloys and a set of 5 MS ms02 alloys.
    I was told the battery was flat but.when it gets here the ignition is dead, the headlights eork and that is it, nothing else electrical works, that tells me either a main fuse has gone or the battery has been connected backwards. If it has its scrap, if I can start it I may save it as the body is mint all round.



  • MS-02's… i want!!!! :wink:



  • i didnt know they made ms-02's in 4 stud :) gotta love mazdaspeed rims :D



  • looks like the car I should have bought :lol: :| :x



  • sweet very nice. looks tidy. get some pics up for all us paupers with only one MX



  • Well, not happy with it at all the lying tw*t
    someone has tried ripping me off but I will get my money back plus more on this thing

    I was toldf the immobiliser was draining the battery and it was dead but will run with a jump start
    Got it unloaded at 6.30am and the bloke told me he tried using a jump pack to start it but nothing would go
    Lunchtime came along and I had a bit of spare time on my hands so looked into it further
    Nothing electrical works with jump leads on it except the headlights, all fuses were good so got under the bonnet and found the 100amp main fuse had blown, when I tried to remove it it has welded itself into the block, not even destroying the fuse and using pliers could I get it out

    There are 2 things to this, either therehas been a massive short and burnt out the fuse then once a new fuse fitted and battery charged it could just fire up or which I do hope its not is that the battery has been connected the wrong way round and destroyed everything :x

    I have got a new fuse and had to get a new key as that was twisted like a corkscrew so when I get time I will have a crack at it tomorrow :wink:

    anyway on the UP side of it all

    The body is absolutely mint, no scratches or dents anywhere

    Mazdaspeed front bumper YAY - no more buying cars in the future for parts (unless requested lol)
    Set of 4 brand new alloys with tyres - still trying to find out make
    Set of 4 Enkei Racing S split rim 15" alloys
    1 x mazdaspeed MS01 alloy wheel with brand new snow tyre fitted :?
    Brand new full length stainless exhaust system with 6x3 oval tail
    mazdaspeed rear spoiler
    jdm wind deflectors

    So if I cannot start it by next friday it will be stripped and scrapped and no messing, it owes me £415 now all in so anybody need parts make a list because I will gut this and get it towed if I find the electrics are fried

    Anyway for sale already is the..
    MS01 wheel
    Enkei 15" split rims with 2 brand new tyres
    panasonic CD player







  • Mate you know the 100 amp main fuse is not a pull jobbie like the rest?, it has a hole through the blades and a nut and bolt holding it in, no amount of pulling will get it out!. It's a easy job but you kinda have to dismantle the fusebox.



  • you know what I said that to the old man as he came down to look at it and was adamant it wasnt lol, will have a go tomorrow then hahaha, thanks garfy



  • Yeah I thought it was weird as I think there's a 80 that just pulls out. I stared at mine for ages lol! I changed mine as it was starting to corrode under the viewing plastic.



  • Won't it just fry the engine loom? I've wired my battery up to the car wrong so many times it's unreal. lol



  • wel replaced the main fuse today and its pretty mashed, the starter doesnt want to know it makes the clicking noise you get when its slightly flat but at about 20 clicks a second so theres a good chance its melted solid or siezed from lack of use, the interior light has melted the switch on permanently, you cannot turn it off unless you strip it and remove the bulbs, not even the door switches turn it off and when you try to start the engine, you turn the key back from the start position to usually ignition on and the cooling fans come on and stay on until you disconnect the battery, they then go off and only come back on when you have tried the starter. the drivers side electric window switch appears to be melted and doesnt work and I havent even tried any other electrical parts yet, this was just to try and start it, think there are some melted wires shorting somewhere :evil: :evil: :evil:

    on the plus side I found this JDM piece of carpet under the seat




  • have you bought a chocolate car and left it out in the sun lol



  • If you keep it and doing an engine swap… swap the looms over, should only take a few hours with the car stripped anyway.

    The import shells are Gavanized, so hard to rust, the shell will outlive your old one.
