My 2 is going well, so my goals at the moment are limited to keeping it going well!

If I'm honest then I'd say oil change in Jan/Feb, and probably I should get my mirrors and rear bumper resprayed.

What are your MR2 goals for 2014?

My goals are three fold.

Mrk II Roadcar:
Have the roadcar back on the road after a year of missing her.
Have a cracking weekend in Scotland with a heap of other MR2's and my dad.

Mrk II Trackcar:
Get it out for heaps more trackdays and fun.
Set up the geo more aggressively for track.

Mrk I Roadcar:
Replace the rear sills with new metal
Insure her and have some fun.

2014 should be a better year for me cars wise, 2013 was full of work, work, work, college. So much so I had little time to even arrange insurance, tax or NCT's.

Bring it on.

Lovely surprise from Santa today, insurance and tax for a few months sweet. NCT booked for 12/01/13. First run today and some donuts before dinner!!

Car looks poorly but she is going well even in the ice down here, woohoo. I have just realised how sad it must be to book an NCT on christmas day and be excited about it :blink:

Nice one Ray, no better man to stretch her legs for the coming months! What's the plan for the little white one? And rudolf?

I've an expensive one coming up(wedding) but I hope to give the panda her track wings this year, at least for a few laps! That and a few months tax will keep me happy.

Ah sure it would be rude not to after the length of time she was laid up. Nothing excessive, let her warm up and then a little gentle pushing

What's the plan for the little white one?

Little white one is currently under grinding New metal to be welded in this side of summer I hope. My Da is working away on that one, she has NCT so could be taxed and insured however he would rather it was up to full spec before releasing her into the wild.

As you can see new exhaust system front to back installed, all the brake calipers have been striped down cleaned, greased and reinstalled. Hopefully she will be flying when back on the road / track.


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

She is rough but nothing really to worry about as its cosmetic metal only, really looking forward to seeing her all done.

And then the easy bit, the t-bar had a leak, it was tracked down to a missing grommet under the seal.


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


And rudolf?

Rudolf will be driven till it dies, but mainly tyres, petrol, brake pads and trackdays, might even spray her nose to white, or decal he up. Just need the funds to do it and I would rather spend the money on pads / tyres etc.

It's amazing what the skirts and splats hide, I only really seen the pics of her Dave put up here but I did not expect that! First thing I did with mine was root out all the leaves and shite that gather in behind the front wing and behind the side splats. There was quite a bit! That reminds me, I should really treat her to an underseal, anywhere recommended by you lads?

KC your way for the pics and update!

I will probably do some paint as we did go trough few supermarket attacks -
I still can't uderstand how people can run to your back and walk away living cars glued together on parking space.

Took me 2 years trial and errors to get it the way i wanted both in looks and performance. Won't go further without forging and this is different kind of money.

That said - for my Mr2 goals - would be meeting more mr2 lads, attend more trips and meetings, cook better burgers at Terenure

- JDM Folding Mirrors
- Autowindow up and mirror fold on alarm activation.
- Floor led's
- Cure window rattles
- Soundproof around side mirrors (motorway noise)


and possibly:

- Tbar seals (although the recent silicone grease fix seems to be working so far)
