Although the wheels are perfect size and stagger for the MR2 I'd like to fit new longer studs and 10mm spacers.

Well, I've fitted extended studs and 10mm spacers to improve the stance and fill the arches better. Next job is to replace these capacitors on the speedo. I've bought 2 sets of the 3 incase I bu88er them up.

For info they came from maplins
KQ63 6.8uf 50v
KQ70 100uf 25v
KQ65 2.2uf 35v

Yeah I?ll try and fix pictures but it?s not gonna be easy.

Car is filthy as you can see the layers of dust on the bonnet. I?m gonna give it a wash tomorrow and then give it a dam good wax n polish.

The Dep 2 Pro is also coming off I?m favour of the stock exhaust, I think I?m getting a bit old for loud exhausts [Embarassed]

Looks great mate. I'm not a fan of the number plate surround personally, but it does look great. Well done! [Mr. Green]

You?re not a fan of the surround! How dare you!!


It actually wasn?t my cup of tea at first, but when I bought the car it had allround band holding the plate on and when I went to Halfords chrome is the only one they had.

But when the crystal indicators were fitted it all made sense.

Pretty easy after you have done it a couple of times.

Internal trim out, 3 nuts holding glass on the inside 3 screws on the outside. Toughest part is the black seals bonding it to the body work.
