Looking great Phil and just in time the start of the show season. It won't be the same at Stoneleigh without the Green Machine demonstrating the before and after build!

Forget the red one, just bring the green machine.   :-)
Not all problems can be solved with gaffer tape.  For those there is WD40.
Not even gaffer tape can fix stupid, but it can mask the sound.

If you can’t buy it or steal it you have to make it.

Pic 1, tonight I managed ti fix the supplied rubber into the slots on the rear deck where the T pieces for the roof are.

Pic 2, I then made templates for the wing mirror cover plates...

Pic 3, and then shaped a pices of plastic I had to fit into the opening. I think fixed it with dum-dum so these can easily be removed if needed.

Hey! Hi all you DNA owners/ members, yes, I am still alive and still visit this forum now and again.

I have an app on my phone which lets me know the status of my cars MOT's and it just recently let me know that my MR2/DNA 430 has passed!

This got me nostalgic about it and lead me to re-read my whole build thread!

It was an amazing experience backed by incredible members of this forum. I enjoyed every minute of it.

I started the build on Oct 1st 2012, and finished it for the Stoneleigh show 2015 so 2.5 years in total, but this included 1 divorce, 2 house moves and 3 job changes!

I still attend Stonleigh every year just to meet up with the great car friends I made on here and met over the past 6 years. I will defo be at Stoneleigh again this year (hotel booked) and look forward to having a great time with you all again as always.

Sure wish DNA would create a kit that can be bought and fitted by just about everyone as they used to as these build threads were very interesting to watch and admire.

Anyway, just wanted to say Hi and many many thanks to all of the guys on here who helped me in one way or another (just about everyone!!)

Best wishes and see you all at the show!
