Finally Time to Build
DavidhMX5 - 9/10/18 at 08:30 PM

Hi,
New to forum. I've wanted to build a Haynes roadster for many years but things never quite worked out. Time, cash, facilities, kids etc
Well now the kids are all grown up and no longer need bank of mum and dad, garage is empty and sort of lucky but was made redundant after 23 years working in I.T.
I've now joined the company my son works at as I knew the owner and they had an opening. Here's the lucky bit, it's an engineering company. Now this gives me access to CNC Mills and lathes, CNC Press, CNC Plasma Cutter, high quality welding equipment and just about anything I could need to build a car. Guess it is finally meant to be.
So first problem. I bought the book quite a few years ago but threw it out about 5 years ago whilst having a de-clutter. Anyone know where I could get a copy without parting with my right arm as I will need it for the build. PDF version would be fine. I have the saturn modifications part for MX5 donor so just need the base manual.
Any help appreciated.
Dave

I've got one. I don't think I've done more than thumbed through it once.

If you're ever tempted to part with that high speed low cost book I would be extremely tempted... especially if it still has the plans.

Yes I would sell it and yes it has the plans but not the mk5

What's the mk5?

There is the original terrapin then there is what is meant to be a two seater aka the mk5.

If you do a search it will explain better than I can.
