Smile North Wales Noob

Hi all - I've owned my '92 Eunos Roadster for 4 wonderfull years, more recently turning to the dark side with an M45 JRSC/DIYPNP.

I'm having a few teething problems with tuning but on the whole everything is going to plan-ish.......here's a few images of what she looks like:









I'm looking forward to joining in on a few discussions & hope to one day be able to offer some advice instead of just receiving it.

Vince.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys/girls.....I guess I won't be crossing over to a turbo any time soon.

lulz. We miss a few intro threads here and there. Nice car, welcome to the site. We'll provide as much help as possible, but until you switch over to a turbo charger, I'm not sure how much we'll help. Wink wink.

What are those shiny things behind your front wheels?

And shucks, you should stick around. We just don't have enough pictures of clear taillights, style bars and useless wings here. :(

Welcome! We actually have quite a few supercharger guys here.

Wales is known to have some excellent curvy roads, so I'm sure you have great fun with your car in that part of the world with that car. Have you made any suspension modifications?

If there's one thing i like about this car, it's the interior. That looks nice.

Welcome to the boards. The red interior and soft top are pretty slick.

Thanks for your comments guys - I realise that some cars are not to everyones taste but that's just as well or we'd all be driving around in the exact same POS!

I lived stateside for a while - married to a Floridian girl & we lived in Green Cove Springs Nr Jax, Fl.......ended up being way too hot & swampy for the likes of me though. Worked at St Paul Mn for while & stayed nearby in a town called Coon Rapids - they'd never get away with good-ol' names like that anymore!

FAO the kinky red leather brigade: I'll sort a few more images of the interior & post them up

Yeah the roads here are some of the best in the UK but as a result they're also policed quite heavily

The car is running on the Koni Sports set up on the lowest of 3 perch settings all round, I've just replaced the springs after snapping a rear but thankfully the shocks are still good

The front end, side skirts & rear are all RS Active Type I (Japan) & were fitted prior to being imported to the UK: http://www.rs-active.jp/modules/tinyd0/ Site translations of which can be made using: http://uk.babelfish.yahoo.com/
