FREE 5a body

Looks similar Andy (obviously the reverse light moulding is different) - remind me of your address by PM and I’ll price up postage.

Why did Reliant use 2 inch bolts to hold the straps on - a half an inch would be plenty.
If you ever fit a new tank with new rubber under the straps, you’ll realise that half an inch would be impossible to start on the threads - fine on something that’s settled over the last 30 years perhaps :D

Don't they have ROP over the seat tops as standard?

Scary though :shock:
I think the pretty chromed hoops behind the seats are an option - I think they had a proper rear hoop.

I’m guessing it didn’t have a full cage - did it have any ROPS?

Water pump

That pipe is readily available from club traders I think? Provably eBay too?

Front damper length?

Okay, just measured a pair of OEM doorstops and they are 15” fully open - my apologies for incorrect info.

While I’m measuring - OEM front springs are 12.25” free length.

Front damper length?

I got 13.5” from a thread by Steve cork - of course, when he said “original”, he may have been talking about the dampers already fitted to his car and not the OEM type?

Just seen on a Facebook post from Steve Cox that Ben Everett managed to roll his mx5 this weekend - he’s fine, car isn’t.

No, those two “bolts” are oilway plugs I think. If you have all of the followers removed, the cam should slide out when you remove the front thrust plate.
