this will make you laugh. i put the lsd in went for a drive to test it out, did a couple of donuts and then lost all drive. yep big trail of trans fluid and was stuck on the side of the road.so i can add 2x mf5's and an ms1 to my list of broken vl things.

anyway better it did it now rather than at pcm at winton in september, so me and the bro are heading to melbourne on monday to pick up an mx7 conversion and fingers crossed should all be good.

update: had the mx7 in for a few months now lol, yesterday i got a paint match for the red interior and painted the manual surround and touched up the sunglass holder due to a coffee scald from the previous owners mrs(who woulda thought).

also has my brother ssv's on it due to him writing off his calais and now building another one so im using them in the mean time.

il get some pics up of the interior, cheers
