Surely it would be fairly easy to make that out of 3mm steel?

Car history

One of the problems with starting a thread in the wrong section (particularly technical) is that technical threads (that aren’t really technical) get archived in the members technical section. :D

Mikeys / Greenys / Colin Watson v8 Coupe

Mx5 and MGF are popular seats but any seat from a modern mainstream production car is going to be a lot higher.

Not on any GTE/GTC box. They look similar to the Ti adaptor but not sure on dimensions?

No overdrive, so what would you do?

I’d swap the box - overdrive, 5 speed (type 9 or RX8), whichever you prefer. Having said that, I had a 4 speed and it’s a really nice box with good top end ratios - is most of your mileage motorway? If not, will you really notice the loss of fifth?

The A127 range has an easily replaceable (and cheap) diode and brush pack?

Starter Solenoid Relay

Battery > fuse box > wiper motor > starter relay IIRC? I have a battery kill switch where the relay used to be. I don’t think the auto really needs a solenoid, you could fit a normal relay? Edit - you can see it in this photo from Dave Poole’s sporting-reliant site. 7784494F-3300-4E69-BBAC-3FA52FA66...
