Default Hello from Lake District UK

I'm Mark. I am 33 and I live in the Lake District, UK. I work offshore as a Drilling Maintenance Supervisor on oil platforms in the North Sea. I have had a couple of MX-5's in the past back in 2007 and 2008. Firstly I had a brand new Storm Blue NC 1.8 Icon and then traded that in for a Galaxy Grey NC 2.0 Sport as a base car for the Cosworth Supercharger. I was one of the first in the country to pioneer the Cosworth Supercharger kit but it didn't have a happy ending and I sold the car after it spun a bearing after running out of oil the day after the engine was rebuilt with parts and labour supplied free of charge by Cosworth. I am unsure if Cosworth or the engine builder accepted liability but after about 18 months of hassle leading up to this point I lost a lot of money and handed the project to someone else. Since then in 2009 I haven't had a Mazda until recently. I got divorced and sold my Clio 182 and bought a E92 M3. I didn't enjoy it or find it as much fun as the Clio and it had some engine issues that started costing me money so I traded it in for a Diesel! I loved the performance and fuel economy but man it was boring!

Following some health complications in June I was off work for 3 months on sick pay so money was tight and I had a lot of time on my hands. I sold the Diesel and bought a 1993 Eunos Roadster 1.6 with a TD04L turbo charger and have spent the last 2 months enjoying working on that with maintenance, modifications, improvements and repairs.

I love a good forum and have came here from spending hours browsing so thought I would register and say Hello. "Hello".

I can't post any photos of my car at the moment as the firewall restrictions prevent me from opening my media sharing site.
