Hello and good luck with your build.

Have a look at the below link. There is a file which contains updated plans / information for if you are using an MX5.
I have not used them personally as I used a Sierra, but I know many people on the Haynes Roadster forum have used them.

Also have a look at the TMXR chassis made by Phil Talon with all the MX5 mods incorporated. The one I built was a Sierra / MX5 hybrid

Worth you adding your location details to your profile, there may be cars local to you that you can go and look at. It's possible to use the MX5 differential but there is plenty of discussion about how to mount it - as it is not a straightforward as using a Ford diff.
